Error: Could not find gradle wrapper within Android SDK. Might need to update your Android SDK - Android (24 answers)
I am trying to take build in an ionic2 application. I got this error while running ionic build android. The error log is

ANDROID_HOME=/home/varun/Android/SdkJAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracleError: Could not find gradle wrapper within Android SDK. Might need to update your Android SDK.Looked here: /home/varun/Android/Sdk/tools/templates/gradle/wrapperI tried updating the sdk but it was found that the sdk version is latest.

When i looked at the Android/Sdk/tools folder there is no templates directory. I am running on ubuntu 16.04, with cordova version 6.5.0


Edit:

There has been a newer release of Cordova Android that also fixes some problems with SDK tools 26.x.x

cordova platform update android
6.2.2Old answer

Google broke Cordova Android 6.1.x and some other frameworks with their latest sdk tools update.

You are watching: Error: could not find gradle wrapper within android sdk. might need to update your android sdk.

Cordova Android 6.2.1 has been released and it"s now compatible with latest Android SDK.

You can update your current incompatible android platform with cordova platform update android
6.2.1

Or you can remove the existing platform and add the new one (will delete any manual change you did inside yourProject/platforms/android/ folder)

cordova platform rm androidcordova platform add android

I resolved by this by replacing the tools folder in my Android SDK with an older version of the SDK tools (r25.2.3). Follow these steps to do the same:

Unzip this folder. You should end up with a tools directory.Navigate to your $ANDROID_HOME directory (~/Library/Android/sdk/ on OS X).Rename the pre-existing tools directory there to tools.bak (e.g., mv tools tools.bak)Move the tools directory you just downloaded into the SDK folder (e.g., mv ~/Downloads/tools/ .)

A new major version of the SDK tools was just released, which appears to be causing some issues with Ionic (see the press release here: http://tools.android.com/recent/androidsdktoolsrevision2530feb2017).

There"s no need to downgrade Android Tools.On Windows gradle moved from:

C:\Users\you_username\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\tools

to:

C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\plugins\android\lib\templates\gradle\wrapper

So you just need to ajust your path so that it points to the right folder.

I had same problem and I solved it with Carlos Delgado"s answer.

Android Path must be set before all things below. Unzip -> copy and paste "tools > templates" folder to your project folder (/Libraries/Android/sdk/tools/) press option key to see Libraries folder in your Finder
