I am starting my first android project using nativescript.
I want to run my project with genymotion.
In genymotion GUI settings/ADB I am using custom Android SDK tools and genymotion tells me the android SDK tools are found. Also the VirtualBox path is valid, and when I renamed the device the VirtualBox name and Genymotion name both changed. The Virtualbox VM is powered down.
I start genymotion and get the emulator open with a black screen. I then run:
tns run android
Cannot find connected devices. Reconnect any connected devices, verify that your system recognizes them, and run this command again.
tns run android --emulator --geny nameOfDevice
Do not open genymotion before adb initialisation.
Start adb server first
and then open genymotion to initialise emulator.
After that you should be able to see emulator in list of running devices through adb command. I ran into the same scenario where adb does not list emulators if genymotion is opened before adb initialisation. I hope it helps.
