Troubleshooting: Genymotion problems

How to fix Files successfully copied to: /sdcard/Download/ problem:

These days I’ve been getting some reports from you guys about this problem. Just follow these steps to fix it:

  1. Open Genymotion, start your Virtual Machine.Click on the Genymotion on your screen:fix-genymotion-problem-1
  2. Check the Always allow su access(bypass Superuser app) line:
    fix-genymotion-problem-2
  3. Save
  4. Done!

If you cannot find Genymotion icon on your Home Screen:

  1. Download and install Root Explorer for you Virtual Machine.
  2. Open Root Explorer, go to your /sdcard/Download/ folder then extract the zip file of Google Play.
  3. Copy the extracted folder on top of your /system folder.
  4. Overwrite.
  5. Reboot your device and you should have Google Play now.

“An error occured while deploying the file. Error: device not found”

If you get the message “An error occured while deploying the file.
error: device not found” when trying to move the Google Play store (gapps-kk-20140105-signed.zip)

Create a new shared folder (any location will do, I chose downloads) from the Virtual Box settings and check the “auto-mount” box. Reboot the android device and try moving the file again.

Failed to import OVA file Problem:

To fix this problem, just open your Genymotion, go to Settings menu, at the Misc tab choose Clear cache and everything will be ok!

Have fun with Clash of Clans with your Mac!

    Appreciate your guide and it seems like a relief to find it after I switched to Mac from a Windows laptop. Been trying to make this work on my New MBR since a few days. Followed all instructions, as a link for the exact link to download Gapps is not specified, I Googled and downloaded this https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6fG7jfMahEpUDhYRUhOVWh0TXM/edit which seems to be the exact same version you suggest. After doing this, the Google play store wont show up but I can see Gmail, so I downloaded the APK of COC and installed it, COC started brilliantly, the performance is on par with iPad, but when I click the sign in, a message shows up saying there are no Google services, when I click install, the screen just skips and stay there. Please help as I have been doing this for about 15 days and decided its time to ask for help. Also, I delete the VM after trying once and try all over again.

    • Will Potter

      The link you gave me is for Android 4.4, not for 4.3
      You are using Android 4.3 or 4.4?

      • Zingdan

        I think that is 4.3, can you please point me to the right Google Apps package. Thank you

        • Zingdan

          I used this file now com.android.vending-4.3.11-80230011-minAPI8.apk which sees to be the one for 4.3 but with this, while the play store appears, when I click it, it just skips, nothing happens. Thank you.

          • Zingdan

            Another update: I did check the link using a proxy from an alternate country and it does not work.

          • Will Potter

            Wew, If you cant download it from MEGA, please use this link: http://tinyurl.com/nos5zvd

          • Zingdan

            Just using the Andy emulator, so much easier, you should also suggest that as you already have a post for that.

          • Will Potter

            Great one.
            Okay I will suggest it on this post.
            And sorry for the late reply mate!

        • Will Potter

          I have given the download link in the post. I don’t know why you can’t see it.
          Here you go: https://mega.co.nz/#!7tMFGLJL!0sCkiWAMh_3sSOKStECqtEMv_0slgZQ16iXEwS-3uhc

          • Zingdan

            Thank you for the link, I did try that from the post but it returns a dead page to me, are you able to open it, if it does open correctly for you, I will try a proxy to download it.

          • Will Potter

            I always works.
            I think it is because of your connection!

          • Zingdan

            Hello, Do you have anything to add or should I consider that this method wont work for me. Kindly let me know. (Please check below comments I made) Thank you for your time.

  • suhas

  • DeejaySiesta

    clash of clans is really laggy when i run it please suggest some method to fix it

    • Will Potter

      I think it is because of your video card. Can you resize the resolution of the virtual machine to smaller one?

  • Kim Marcos

    Hey, why im stuck at downloading phase? Wth?! Please help me. My connection is good but why it was stuck there?. Please help

    • Will Potter

      Have you tried to change the connection?

  • Kim Marcos

    stuck downloading

    • Will Potter

      Try to restart your Mac and Virtual Machine then try again!

  • Peavey Nicolas

    it doesn’t work for me… this error keeps popping up. how do i fix this?

    • Will Potter

      You need to run the virtual machine via Genymotion mate!

      • Peavey Nicolas

        i did. this happened, that’s why i turned to the virtualbox

      • Peavey Nicolas

        I did. this is what happened…

        • Will Potter

          Have you tried to reinstall them?
          I have mentioned a method to remove them fully for reinstalling in the tutorial.

          • Peavey Nicolas

            i just did. 3 times now. same results. ๐Ÿ™

          • Will Potter

            Ok hold on. I will try to find a way to solve this one!

          • Peavey Nicolas

  • Tavi

    so I don’t have the icon on the home screen for genymotion, but I don’t know what Root Explorer is either.. can you send me to a link? Or am I just not understanding

    • Will Potter

      Understand what mate?
      Can you install all those files and install game?

      • Tavi

        I got to step 12 and once i rebooted i didnt get the genymotion icon so i read at the bottom of the article to download and install root explorer. Do i do that in safari (and if so do you have a link to root explorer) or do i do that from the virtual adroid browser?

        • Will Potter

          Have you tried to remove it fully then reinstall again?

          • Tavi

            Yes. There is still no genymotion icon showing up on the android screen

          • Will Potter

            At step 13th, I said that you need to drag and drop the gapps file onto your device, can you do that?

          • Tavi

            Yes i did that but when i rebooted it there was no google play icon

          • Will Potter

            Are you using Samsung S4 with Android 4.3?

          • Tavi

            lol yes.. This is what i need help with:
            What is root explorer??

          • Will Potter

            It is an app for Android like Windows Explore on Windows!

  • TheDerpyGuy

    Uhhmmm Where Does the virtual box use for?

    • Will Potter

      You need to use it for controlling your virtual machine.

  • sameer_mehta

    Does this work on ubuntu as well?

    I’ve heard that COC crashes a lot on Mac. Is this true? If so, what can you do to counter crashes?

  • John Dao

    Can you help me with wireless connectivity? I’m adding my Wireless Network Connection but it says it is “Not in Range”..

    • John Dao

      This post was mine…Ignore this, I don’t know why this post didn’t delete..

  • John Dao

    Can you help me with wireless connectivity? I’ve done everything exactly in your video above, up until this point when I open play store, click “Use an existing google account,” and put in my email and password. Then I get the “Couldn’t Sign In” message. It then sends me to checking my Network Connection. The WiredSSID was the one originally on the Android Emulator. The capital1 is my wireless network connection, but as you can see in the screenshot below, it says I’m not in range! I typed in the Network SSID and selected WEP as the Security type(and put in the correct password), but it still says not in range! Please help me asap! Very much appreciated.

    • Will Potter

      Normally I can connect to internet automatically, you don’t need to do anything.
      This is the first time I have seen this problem. Let me check this…

      • John Dao

        Alright Thank YOU! ๐Ÿ™‚ Really though, shouldn’t it be able to search for available networks on its own? I had to add the network, but again, “Not in Range”..

      • John Dao

        Any solutions yet?

        • Will Potter

          Still no response from the support.
          What is your current Mac version mate?

          • John Dao

            It’s 10.10.3

          • John Dao

            I SOLVED IT! I just created a new virtual device..ty

          • Will Potter

            Great one. You are very welcome mate!

      • John Dao

        I FIGURED IT OUT! Since in the past when I tried downloading adobe flash player, it wouldn’t let me because of my antiware on my mac. It noted that I should disable any antiware that may be interfering with the download. So this morning I figured, “What if I disabled my antiware?” What’dya know? It worked! It allowed me to connect to a wireless connection network! I hope this post helps anyone having this same problem! ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Will Potter

          LOL that’s nice.

          I don’t use Anti-ware software on my Mac.

          I think they are useless!

  • Andrew Simpson

    Says that Clash of Clans app is not compatible with with this version of this device. Seems to be a problem running 4.3 when the S4 is updatable to 4.4.4

    However, 4.4.4 will not run (crashes repeatedly). Any solutions?

    • Will Potter

      The Google Play files in this tutorial is for Android 4.3. You have to use Android 4.3!

      If it says “not compatible”, please remove the virtual machine then try again!

      • Andrew Simpson

        The app, Clash of Clans, is not compatible to download on the app store.

        • Will Potter

          ye this is a common problem.
          Try to remove your Virtual as I mention in the tutorial and reinstall it. This should works.

        Here is a screenshot.

  • Matthew Sorrells

    Hey so I was wondering if there may be a way to change the hotkeys
    for zooming. I am having trouble when zooming in/out that i drop troops
    too quickly and loose the advantage of strategic placement…

    • Will Potter

      Hmmm… Maybe you should do that with a mouse.
      There is no way to change the hotkey mate. I am so sorry!

  • Dani88sr

      • sameer_mehta

        Yes, I was playing it until today and then update came so after updation it says incompatible with your device so I uninstall it and install everything again but it didn’t work. Let me know if you know the solution ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Will Potter

          My friend is playing Clash of Clans perfectly on Android 4.3…
          Can you reinstall your device?

  • Phillip May

    when i tried to update it told me i had to sign in, first into my account which wasn’t successful, and then into the web which required a mobile number, is there a way to bypass this?

    • Will Potter

      You can’t bypass this. It is belong to Google!

  • Phillip May

    also rom toolbox pro stops working

  • Jimmy H.

    Unfortunately even after clearing cache, the files re download and at the end it says failed to import ova again

      Can you download Clash of Clans from somewhere else then open it with Genymotion?

  • Esoterica Incessant

    Hi. How can I install it if I am an IOS user? I hope I could get an easy and effective answer.
    Thanks!

    • Will Potter

      Hi Esoterica, It is very easy!
      1. Follow my steps and install Genymotion.After installing, you will have an Android virtual machine.
      2. Follow this tutorial to connect your account from iOS to Android: http://cocland.com/tutorials/move-clash-clans-ios-android-vice-versa
      3. Done.

      • Esoterica Incessant

        I mean I want to install it here in my MAC laptop but I am an IOS user.. Is it possible? I want to play on a bigger screen that’s why..
        Thanks Will!

        • Will Potter

          Please read my answers carefully Esoterica :D.
          Everything you asked is in my reply.

  • Lydia Thom

    I can’t seem to download Google Play. Whenever I click download it says temporary error, trying again. Am I doing something wrong?

    • Will Potter

      Please try to change the connection and try again!

  • Nikhil Bane

    • Will Potter

      Very welcome ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Patrick McHugh

    Thank you for putting the energy into this topic. It took a while but I got it to work on my MAC SE OS X 10.6.3. I would suggest using Andy. Much easier and a lot faster

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for your comment Patrick. I have a tutorial about Andy on cocland but Andy doesn’t support some kinds of CPU so many people can’t use it…

  • John Dao

    There is a new version of genymotion available: 2.5.0 should i update or no?

    • Will Potter

      No problem at all If you want to update it!

  • Wanderer

    Is there a way to trick play store into thinking you have a real device? I want to use this for Jurassic World, but it always says the app isn’t available for my device.

    Otherwise great tutorial, thanks a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Will Potter

      Hi Wanderer.

      You can find the apk file of Jurassic World on Google then open it with Genymotion!

  • Mitchell Anderson

    I have installed genymotion and virtual box. when i try to open genymotion it says it is unable to load virtual box engine. make sure that it is installed properly before starting genymotion. Virtual box installed and runs just fine. Is there more i need to do besides just installing them? any setup?

    • Will Potter

      Nope. Normally you just need to install them, no more..
      Hmmm what is your Mac OS X version?

  • Loy

    Doesn’t work on the latest El Capitan Beta.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Loy.
      El Captitan is pretty new and still in the beta section, please give Genymotion time to work on this new OS. Thank you!

  • So much lag!!!!! How do I fix this? Please awnser

    • Will Potter

      You should resize the resolution of the Virtual Machine!

  • Liam Fairbrother

    Hi, I have followed the instructions but when I try to install clash of clans it says the browser is no longer supported for google play store?

    • Will Potter

      Can you try to download Clash of Clans on the Internet then install it?
      This problem is uncommon and only exist in some special countries ๐Ÿ™

  • Works like charm in 10.104 Yosemite. Just make sure you install the latest Genymotion and a previous VirtualBox build 4.3.28 (take note: don’t install the previous build 4.3)

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for your sharing Belle!

    • Well there’s a new update for Genymotion but I didn’t upgrade mine… So I am not sure currently if the new updated version of Genymotion will work with a previous VBox build… so good luck guys!

      • Will Potter

        I’d like to keep the current version or at least connect my village to the Google ID at first before doing anything.
        Thank you for the update Belle!

  • Phillip May

    it says downloaded to scared/download/ for the apt

  • Prabin Shrestha

  • Mark

    Hi guys, after updating virtualbox to newest version. I get everytime the following error message please be so kind and help me

    BR Mark

    • Will Potter

      Seems like it doesn’t work with your current Genymotion version.
      Have you tried to reinstall them again?

  • Dea Barasha

    I have successfully downloaded clash of clans but i do not have the genymotion app on my virtual device. is that a problem?

    • Will Potter

      You can’t run Clash of Clans or?

      • Dea Barasha

        everything is okay. i can play clash of clans. i just don’t have that app showing in my virtual device.

        • Will Potter

          That’s ok buddy, unless you face any problem!

  • Wooly Ass

    Hi I can’t get it to work. Your link for Google Play won’t work. It takes me to the site and then the site won’t download the file.

    • Will Potter

      HI Wooly.
      Dont know why but I can download it easily.
      You can try to use this link instead: https://mega.nz/#!7tMFGLJL!0sCkiWAMh_3sSOKStECqtEMv_0slgZQ16iXEwS-3uhc

      • Wooly Ass

        Thank you for this. I used your link and plugged it into Chrome instead of Safari. Also, I had to use Virtual Box 4.2 version to get it all going in the first place as an FYI. Also, Geny asked me to update to 2.5 and I did. Should be fine?

        • Will Potter

          You can run it smoothly without update. I think you shouldn’t do that because maybe you will face some problems!

      • Wooly Ass

        I’ve got it working. Thank you. And thank you for keeping up with all of the comments – you’re a gem!

        • Will Potter

          You are very welcome buddy. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  • tanky priyamunggar

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much buddy, you don’t need to do that. Just visit this blog everyday for reading Clash of Clans guides, that is the best way to support us!

  • Slayer Kma

    Hello everyone, I followed the steps and everything installed ok, but when I hit the CoC icon to play I get the error message: “You have lost connection with the server. Check your internet connection and try again.” can you help with fixing this issue? Thanks.

    • Will Potter

      Have you tried to reinstall Clash of Clans?
      Can you run other online games?

      • Slayer Kma

        Sorry, I started a new thread…as I was saying: “Thanks for the quick reply Will. Yes, I just tried deleting the entire virtual machine, reinstalled it and everything goes smooth until I try to play it :(“

  • Slayer Kma

    Thanks for the quick reply Will. Yes, I just tried deleting the entire virtual machine, reinstalled it and everything goes smooth until I try to play it ๐Ÿ™

    • Will Potter

      Hmm this is pretty weird. Never faced this before.
      Can you run Boom Beach?

      • Slayer Kma

        Do I need any specific files to run Boom or do I just download it from the Play Store?

        • Will Potter

          Just download it from Play Store buddy ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Slayer Kma

            Hmm..same thing ๐Ÿ™ could it be a blocked port?

          • Will Potter

            I really don’t know… The weird thing is you still can connect to Google Play :(.
            Can you try to restart your Mac?

          • Slayer Kma

            I just restarted the mac and still the same thing. Oh well..thanks anyways for trying to help Will.

          • Will Potter

            I will ask the support about this for you. Will be in touch!

          • Slayer Kma

            Thanks again bud, I really appreciate it…btw, I went to the http://portquiz.net:9339/ to test for blocked ports, and the response I got was:
            “You have reached this page on port 9339.Your network allows you to use this port.”

          • Will Potter

            Thank you for the information. I am finding the solution for this!

          • Slayer Kma

            I finally figured out the issue. I read on the CoC support forums that people were getting problems with firewalls blocking ports even though port quiz was showing otherwise. Anyways, they recommended Hotspot shield VPN (I’m guessing any other would work the same), so I got it and it finally connected ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks again for all the help Will.

          • Will Potter

            I was thinking about that before but I also though that it was not the real problem lol.
            Glad to hear that form you buddy!

  • Sam McGov

    the gapps-jb-20130813-signed.zip link doesn’t download that MEGA downloading isn’t very good… is there another link that i can download from?

      • Clasher43115

        Hi Will! I see you’re helpful on here so I decided to reply to you from a comment of yours. Okay when the /sdcard/Download/ problem happened I followed your steps but I downloaded root explorer to the virtual machine and when I searched up the file it had no results! Can you please help me?

  • Erwin Laroa

    Absolutely effective, just follow the instructions step by step. I want to thank the guy who is responsible for all the hard work. Anyway, I wanted to ask if it is possible to play other games with the same software?

    • Will Potter

      Yep sure, you can play all applications in Google Play Store!

  • Clasher43115

    How do I fix the “Files Successfully Copies to: SD Card”? I know they told you how to fix it but I just don’t get it.

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for the feedback buddy!

  • RAHBAR KARIM CHOWDHURY

    My oracle VirtualBox can’t load the S4 for some reason. Any idea what i can do about it?

    • Will Potter

      You should run your virtual machine from Genymotion, not the VIrtual Box buddy!

  • Clasher43115

    I finally understood the steps to get rid of the /sdcard/Download/ problem but when I used root explorer it said I had no files with that name. Help please?

    • Will Potter

      With what name buddy?
      Can you give me the screenshot please?

      • Clasher43115

        When I searched the file where the downloads were copied to (/sdcard/Download/) it had no results. Here are some screenshots and what do you mean by name? I’m not really used to this stuff :/

      • Clasher43115

        Is everything alright? Am I doing something wrong?

      • Clasher43115

        Will…?

      • Clasher43115

        Will…?
