Android 4.2 arrived yesterday and community reports indicate there may be some issues with the release. Titanium testers are reporting an issue with the latest Android tools on OS X with a dual-monitor setup. Specifically, the following issues occur with Android SDK Tools rev. 21 and Android SDK Platform-tools rev. 16:

  • If you launch an emulator on your primary display and drag it to your secondary display, the emulator turns purple.
  • After moving the emulator to the secondary display, all subsequent launches of the emulator crash until you return to a single-display configuration.

This issue has been observed on OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x. It is a known issue, reported as Android issue #38371.

We will update this post if more information becomes available.
