Hi, please help me in this problem,
I want to use my android phone's camera as an output for my App (using App Designer MATLAB).
I found that I can use Simulink Android toolbox to realize this goal.
The problem is everytime I clicked deploy to hardware, it always shows this error
### Starting build procedure for model: test

### Build procedure for model: 'test' aborted due to an error.

Component:Simulink | Category:Block diagram error
My block diagram is I connected Android Camera with Android Video Display as dummy trial.
I have followed all steps during the installation of the support package and installed all the latest version of Android Studio.
For your information I am using MATLAB R2019a and Simulink version 9.3
Please help, thank you !

Please note, the Camera block works fine with Android SDK Build Tools 28.0.3. However, if build tool version 29.0.0-rc2 is present then the above issue comes up.
To resolve the issue, you can uninstall build tool 29.0.0-rc2 and install version 28.0.3


Hi Sruthi,
I have uninstalled the build tool 29.0.0-rc2 and installed version 28.0.3 using Android Studio.
But the error still persist, it seems that whenever I deploy to hardware, the Android Studio automatically update the SDK Build tools.
Do you have a solution for this ?
Here is the error log:

After uninstalling, please run Android Hardware setup again. Then try deploying the model
Thanks a lot Sruthi ! It solved my problem !

How prevent automatic actualization of build tool? I ran Hardware setup and at momento to build the system actualize tool versión


Hi Carlos,
Build tools, will not be updated automatically. If you have build tools 29.0.0-rc1 or 29.0.0-rc2. Please uninstall those versions of build tools and insatll 28.0.3 . After completing the above step, run Hardware setup again. Let me know if you face any issues
Hi Sruthi,
I have Matlab 2018b with Simulink 9.2 and I am facing the problem.
I have deinstalled the SDK build tool 29.0.0-rc3 and installed 28.0.3 several times, and each time I ran Hardware setup again.
But each time I let simulink compile for android it reinstalls 29.0.0-rc3. The problem also excists with every block I try in simulink, so not only the camera and screen block.
Is there any way to force simulink to compile with 28.0.3?
I have android studio 3.4.
Hi Carlos,
im wondering do you have a solution for this yet? because im facing the same issue, and cant figure it out
