Error: Creating Emulator for Android 4.0

Yesterday after downloading and installing Android SDK 4.0.3 which was released last March 16, 2012, I was prompted by an error upon creating and Emulator using the AVD Manager. The error that I have encountered was:Unable to find a ‘userdata.img’ file for ABI armeabi to copy into the AVD folder.The error was pertaining to the ARM EABI v7a System Image which I have neglected to install. This error prevents the Android System to create an Emulator which will be used in creating Android APPS.

Here are the steps to solve the error:

  1. Start Android SDK Manager.
  2. Expand Android 4.0.3 (API 15).
  3. Select ARM EABI v7a System Image.
  4. Hit Install Package.
  5. After the installation restart Eclipse.
