FAQ & Troubleshooting


Out of JVM Memory

Gradle build daemon has been stopped: JVM garbage collector thrashing and after running out of JVM memory. Add the following configuration to the file: gradle.properties.


Gradle plugin version is larger than 4.1.x

If your Gradle plugin version is larger than com.android.tools.build:gradle:4.1.x. Please set the compileSdkVersion = 31 and targetSdkVersion = 31 . And add the following configuration to the file: src/main/AndroidManifest.xml .

      android:exported="true" // sdk version 31

Use JDK11 and Gradle 7.x.

If you want to use JDK11 and Gradle 7.x. Please do:

  1. JAVA_HOME = JDK11 (system env)

  2. classpath("com.android.tools.build:gradle:7.x.x") (build.gradle)

  3. distributionUrl=https://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-7.x-all.zip (gradle-wrapper.properties)

  4. And change the following configuration in the file: app/firework.gradle .

android {
  compileOptions {
    sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_11
    targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_11

minCompileSdk = 31

  • If you met the issue like below:

> The minCompileSdk (31) specified in a
        dependency's AAR metadata (META-INF/com/android/build/gradle/aar-metadata.properties)
        is greater than this module's compileSdkVersion (android-30).
        Dependency: androidx.lifecycle:lifecycle-viewmodel-ktx:2.4.0.

Please do:

configurations.all {
  resolutionStrategy {
    force 'androidx.work:work-runtime-ktx:2.2.0'
    force 'androidx.lifecycle:lifecycle-viewmodel-ktx:2.2.0'

Maybe your compileSdkVersion = 30 and targetSdkVersion = 30 , your Gradle is below 6.9-all and the Gradle plugin is com.android.tools.build:gradle:4.1.x .
