GeneralAndroid Emulator, resolved + solution Pinmembernewton.saber31-Aug-14 4:29 
Recently I posted about getting a new computer (i7 with 8Gb Ram) and still having trouble starting the Android Emulator.
It was stuck on the Android splash screen. Could not figure it out. It was driving me crazy. Then I ran some command-line stuff
c:\>adb shell ps
(adb.exe found in ADT \platform-tools)
 
Stuck Writing To Emulator's OS Image
I found out that even though the thing was stuck it was actually running a ton of processes.
Then I noticed that there were a bunch of installations the android image was trying to do but were failing, but it kept trying (for hours).
 
Finally, I stumbled upon a couple of solutions:
1. add the android home path which points to the location of the android images to environment variables (see below).
2. (most important) make sure that the path to your android images is FULL READ/WRITE access. Those files had read-only access before.
The OS is really just a file on your computer (obvious to many) and if your computer cannot write to that file then the emulator cannot either and it tries and fails forever.
 
This fixed it. Now emulator starts in seconds.
Now I'm working through a great book on Android programming:
Android Programming- The Big Nerd Ranch Guide [^]
