This works for me.

For JDK:
JDK 1.8.0_121

Android Dev SDK:
Just download only the platform tools not the entire dev platform.
In the "android" utility

Under Tools install:
Android SDK Tools 25.2.5
Android SDK Platform-tools 27.0.1
Android SDK Build-tools 27.0.3

Under Android 4.4.2 (API 19) install:
SDK Platform v4
Google APIs v20 (don’t know if you need this one)

Can someone please update the lesson How to Become an Android Developer? On the Livecode site.

1) Load JAVA SDK – (JDK) – Takes you to JAVA SE 10.0.1
	- which I believe in incompatible with LC.  

java SE 8u171/ 8u172. Works, but there is no mentioned about that the Lesson.

Anyway. Got it stalled. 

2) Android SDK 

The link for the Android Studio page.
 For the SDK only options, we find

Hanson says to get, in the lesson, "

Hanson says " The current version of the SDK Tools is not compatible with LiveCode. Please download version 24.4.1."   Looking on the internet for "android SDK 24.4.1" only to find links... that take back the Android Studio page.. with no options other than 

OK so I download that....

But there was no "android-sdk-mac/tools/android" file to run

ever I did find what it need, can we trust the lesson on what packages to install? If seems way out of data.

Now I'm stuck...searching the mailing list
