I am trying to install the Google Applications packages on an Android virtual device (emulator), and one of the steps requires me to be in recovery mode.
adb reboot recovery,
adb reboot bootloader,
adb shell reboot recovery, etc. All of these commands print no output, and hang indefinitely while the emulator shows no response. (Side note:
adb devices shows
emulator-5554, as expected.)
I noted that issuing a shutdown command through the UI also hangs indefinitely, so I'm thinking maybe rebooting is simply not an option for the emulator. Is there a different way that I can boot an Android virtual device into recovery mode?
