    Hello Pat, is mostly oriented to deal with problems of gems services, but not with specific problems of a gem.

    You can direct your questions to rhodes group:

    However, I can give you two hints of what I notice, excuse my lack of understanding on how rhodes works:

    First is this error:

    No such file or directory - C:/Program Files/Android/android-sdk/platform-tools/ adb.exe devices

    Seems is not able to invoke adb.exe, probably because Android SDK is placed in a directory with paths, or maybe because the executable is not there.

    Locate that executable and see if is there.

    The second error seems be associated to the first, not been able to execute adb.exe

    Please search and ask at Rhodes group for better responses.

    Hope this helps.
