I am using Android Studio and there was no option to select the minimum SDK that you have shown in this video.

There was no option for me to select: Minimum SDK: API 11: Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) instead it was the 3.2 version. I also could not select the Nexus 5(4.0*480*800 hdpi) you have used. Is there a way to do this in Android Studio.

You will have to download the extras on your Android SDK. Honeycomb is API 11 and Nexus 5 is in one of the following

ARM EABI v7a System Image
Intel x86 Atom System Image
MIPS System Image
Google APIs

If you download all of those, you should be able to choose those options Let me know if you need more help

Thank you for the help and quick response., am downloading the API now. Where do I download the Nexus 5 from?

You might need to expand API 21, 20, or 19 to find one of these. I recommend installing all of 21. From the looks of my SDK, its in there. That should solve your problem of finding the nexus 5. Better yet, I would recommend taking the Android Tools tutorial at


and install Genymotion if you think the current emulator is too slow.

Brilliant have managed to figure it out. Will have a read through the documentation as well.

Thanks again
