Anybody able to create a clover station emulator in the last month or so?

This is a question for community users. I'm just trying to find out if anybody's been able to create a Clover Station emulator in the last month or so. I've been unable to get app updates to install using an emulator generated by the google AVD, and I'm wondering if it's a problem particular to my account.

So if you've successfully managed to create an emulator for a Clover Station, please respond to this post! And if you're really feeling friendly, you can give details about platform (avd/genymotion), operating system, etc.

Thanks!

I just installed the personal version of Genymotion to see if it would work, and it did. I had to open the Updater application from the notification area, tell it to "Install Now" and then confirm the installation of each package, but once I did that the launcher and apps appear to work correctly.

Conclusion: Clover Station emulation won't work using AVD, but works using Genymotion. Guess I'll have to buy a copy.

Hey, where you able to get it working? I tried today and it wont launch into the app. I'm trying to emulate the flex.
the launcher always just loads normal android.

Edit: I managed to get the engine and updater installed manually using the command line. however there is an issue with the sales APK that breaks the install process and breaks everything.

Yes, that's the problem I'm running into as well. I can sideload the engine and updater APKs but then the other apps won't load. Clover support is apparently looking into it, my issue is here if you want to upvote it: https://community.clover.com/questions/12610/app-updater-fails-on-emulator.html

I was able to. I ran into issue before where the storage allocated on the emulator was too small so the app were unable to install.


I had to recreate the emulator with more location storage.

Interesting! How much storage did you end up allocating? And what operating system are you using?

Finally got around to trying it, and no luck. Was this emulator built using google AVD (Andriod Studio)? Or genymotion?
