HAX Failed to allocate memory: 8 – Eclipse AVD


Starting emulator for AVD ‘hdpi_480x800’
emulator: device fd:788
HAX is working and emulator runs in fast virt mode
Failed to allocate memory: 8
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application’s support team for more information.


Reduce memory until this error doesn’t appear.

parseSdkContent failed – Eclipse


Probable Solutions:

Tried this link :)
Deleting the Eclipse workspace and other generated folders seemed to have fixed the problem.
Glad to have the “Android SDK Manager” running, guess am back in business now, hope can still catch up with the assignments.



W8 Restart-CAM04780x1024

I guess the reason’s for installing Eclipse on very deep folder level and very long folder/file names.
I concluded that as Windows throw error message when I try to delete Eclipse folders.
I only succeeded in deleting Eclipse files and folders when I moved it to D:\Temp folder.
Then again, after reinstalling in normal folder level, this error still keeps coming back :(
No specific solution to-date, looking forward to some patches from either provided to fix this.


  • Updated Intel into latest HAXM hotfix version 1.0.7
    Hotfix is an entire new installation and not just an upgrade or add-on
    Previous installation needs to be removed

Java Exit Code 1 – Eclipse


This just pops up crashing Eclipse ADT.
I just have to re-start Eclipse, hoping it didn’t corrupt any of the project(s) I’m working on.


  • Updated into latest Java (as of this writing V7 update 45)

    • Thanks for your comment, it’s just free theme, which I customized with my “ice storm” pic for now.
      There are lots of customization you can do: rotating pics, poll/survey, twitter, etc…
      If you share with me your blogsite and email, I could keep in touch for design tips.
      Bit too scary for me dealing with “monsters hack” :(

  1. I’m extremely inspired together with your writing abilities as smartly as with the structure to your
    blog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you customize it
    your self? Anyway stay up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great weblog
    like this one these days..
