Hello Team,

I got the same issue for the my project.

Please someone help me.

I Got similar type of error when automating iOS app, my app was crashing frequently. Issue was occurring because app was build using latest XCode and was running fine with simulator having latest iOS. while i was using some obsolete Xcode/simulaor/iOS combinations.
May be similar sort of reason is causing app crash in your case also.(Though your app is an android app.)

Has anyone got the solution for this, if so please help. Even i am using appium 1.15.1 and stuck with same issue.

Hello,

appium-doctor inform me that I was missing some android depencies, in particular sdk tools…
I solved this problem by installing the android SDK tools 26.1.1
Now all is working with UIautomator2

Good Luck

It is not the good solution, UIautomator1 is deprecated…
You have to check your sdk tools you have to miss some tools.

Thank you so much. This worked for me too.
