Today, like us, many of you may continue to encounter numerous issues while using the app. One of the most common errors, for example, is the “Android Device Manager fails to launch after updating to MacOS Big Sur 11.3“. So, how can this be resolved? We will work together to find the best solution.
When Does The Error “Android Device Manager fails to launch after updating to MacOS Big Sur 11.3” Occur?
You have recently updated my Mac to Big Sur 11.3, and since then, whenever you try to run an emulated device, it has been silently failing in macOS. Also, you attempt to run the emulator through my Terminal and receive the following error message:
handleCpuAcceleration: feature check for hvf cannot add library /Users/dream/Library/Android/sdk/emulator/qemu/darwin-x86_64/lib64/vulkan/libvulkan.dylib: failed added library /Users/dream/Library/Android/sdk/emulator/lib64/vulkan/libvulkan.dylib cannot add library /Users/dream/Library/Android/sdk/emulator/qemu/darwin-x86_64/lib64/vulkan/libMoltenVK.dylib: failed HVF error: HV_ERROR qemu-system-x86_64: failed to initialize HVF: Invalid argument Failed to open the hax module No accelerator found. qemu-system-x86_64: failed to initialize HAX: Operation not supported by device added library /Users/dream/Library/Android/sdk/emulator/lib64/vulkan/libMoltenVK.dylib
Apple has modified the hypervisor entitlements. Entitlements are key-value pairs that grant a service or technology to an executable. The QEMU binary cannot create and manage virtual machines in this case. This is why the error occurs.
Some Main Methods For The Error “Android Device Manager fails to launch after updating to MacOS Big Sur 11.3”
Method 1: Add the entitlement to the qemu-system-x86 64 binary
To fix the error “Android Device Manager fails to launch after updating to MacOS Big Sur 11.3”, you need to add the entitlement to the qemu-system-x86 64 binary. Create an xml file called entitlements.xml with the following content:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>com.apple.security.hypervisor</key> <true/> </dict> </plist>
Then you need to run this command.
codesign -s - --entitlements entitlements.xml --force /usr/local/bin/qemu-system-x86_64
If you receive the entitlements.xml: cannot read entitlement data error, open the terminal in a folder that contains the qemu-system-x86 64 file. For example, our qemu-system-x86 64 file is located in the following directory: /Users/yourusername/Library/Android/sdk/emulator/qemu/darwin-x86 64/qemu-system-x86 64
Right-click on the darwin-x86 64 folder and select New Terminal Tab at the Folder. Remember to place your entitlements.xml file in the darwin-x86 64 folder. Run the command in this terminal now.
This solution may be ideal for you.
