Altho I have many years of development experience including .NET/VB/C#, I am new to mobile apps and to Xamarin. I have successfully installed Xamarin Studio 4.0, Xamarin.Android and related and I can build the sample Tasky app, and deploy it to one of the supplied emulators {MonoForAndroid_API_15} which is Android 4.0.3 .

I can launch several of the supplied emulators {MonoForAndroid_API_10, MonoForAndroid_API_15}. I have a Nexus 7 and am having fits trying to create a new emulator {MonoForAndroid_API_16} using Android 4.1.2 . I can at last launch the Nexus7 emulator; it shows the "ANDROID" logo ... and nothing else.

I modified both projects {Tasky.Core.Android_Starter, TaskyAndroid} to target Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and then did a clean all and rebuild all w/o errors. Here are my settings for MonoForAndroid_API_16

AVD NAme: MonoForAndroid_API_16

Device: (Nexus 7 (7.27", 800 x 1280: tvdpi)

Target: Android 4.1.2 - API Level 16

SD Card -none-

HELP will be greatly appreciated.
