STORAGE application( stock app) crashing (in android EMULATOR)

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

When I try to open the Storage from Settings menu in the emulator, it(always) crashes with following logcat-output

java.lang.NullPointerException at com.android.settings.deviceinfo.StorageVolumePreferenceCategory.updatePreferencesFromState(StorageVolumePreferenceCategory.java:238)

Here are the details of my AVD:

Name: Mx
Path: /home/vvy/.android/avd/Mx.avd
Target: Android 4.2.2 (API level 17)
ABI: armeabi-v7a
Skin: 480x800
Sdcard: /home/vvy/Documents/ANDU/sdC.img
________________________________________
hw.dpad: no
avd.ini.encoding: ISO-8859-1
disk.dataPartition.size: 200M
hw.gpu.enabled: yes
hw.cpu.model: cortex-a8
hw.ramSize: 512
hw.sdCard: yes
hw.device.name: Nexus One
vm.heapSize: 32

Note that I am able to upload data to SDCard from eclipse DDMS perspective, and the stock GALLERY application is able to show the image contents that are pushed via DDMS perspective.

Is this a known issue ? or I am doing something wrong ?

UPDATE

Can someone tell me if they got the stock STORAGE application working in(emulator) android 4.2.2

Storage App does works fine on android 2.3.7 image(on emulator) though ! And I haven’t found a solution yet

UPDATE

Doesn’t works with x86 image as well. I tried on LinuxMint13 and Win7 both.
