gradle – com.android.builder.testing.api.DeviceException: com.android.ddmlib.InstallException: Failed to install all-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I am using React Native 0.26 and trying to play around with Google Plus Sign in from the below npm for Android application.

npm install react-native-google-signin --save

I am using command-line(react-native run-android) to build debug apks directly on my devices.

Followed all the installation steps very carefully. By default, my builds are working only on Build tools version 1.2.3 on build.gradle(/android/) and it used to work for other projects but I am having the below error in this project because I had to include the below line in build.gradle file,

classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:2.1.0' // <— add this

and when I add this, I also have to modify the distributionUrl to https\://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-2.13-all.zip on android/gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.properties

After doing all the modifications when I tried to run the build command, it never installs the updated apk on the device and it is stuck at 99% progress.

Below is the detailed error,

Installing APK 'app-debug.apk' on 'Micromax Q372 - 5.0' for app:debug

How to solve:

I had the same issue trying to install an APK on a specific device.

To solve I listed all the connected devices with adb devices and I identified the right one, then I ran run-android specifying the device ID:

react-native run-android --deviceId MY-DEVICE-ID
