Hello Andre,

Have you downloaded OpenJDK separately? I think it is bundled in Android

The error sounds related to Java / JDK, so could it be the case you have
multiple Java installations in your machine, and LC is not picking the
right one?

What are the contents of /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/ ?

Also, what is the jdk path that is populated in the LC mobile prefs, when
you choose the sdk root folder?
