Android Studio Mac Extremely Slow

Downloaded the latest Android Studio:  2.1.3 for mac and it won’t boot or run anything.

Seems first off you need to run the emulator on sudo or it will segfault.  After launching from Android Studio you see it tried to run something like: /Users/user/Library/Android/sdk/tools/emulator -netdelay none -netspeed full -avd Galaxy_Nexus_API_22. end then segfaults.

Copy the command and run:

So now it doesnt’ boot or appears to boot but takes days… you reboot because you can’t kill the thing either.  Maybe you have installed Virtual Box on you machine at some point and it turns out the kernel modules form virtual box interfere with the intel/google/android emulator( )


Uninstall VirtualBox…


Enjoy the still slow emulator but it seems to work…
