Making an App with Rhodes

I know I said I was going to wait to January 1st 2013 to make something, but I can't wait! I am starting the process of making my very own app for 5 platforms. The process for making the app starts with installing: Rhodes, RhoStudio, RhoSync, Java SDK, Android SDK, plus others. Well everything is going fine and dandy till I get an error when trying to run my app using 'rake run:android' then I get "waiting , error , I've tried to fix the error unsuccessfully the past 2 days. I'm gonna' see if someone at the Open Space Hacker group in South Arlington can help me fix the error.

Installation of stuff is usually the hardest. Good news is: The RhoStudion Simulator works perfect with my app, so that's pretty awesome. I'll keep you up to date with how the app building goes.

By the way: End of last week I studied a total of 23.75 hours, so a good week:) Yesterday I studied 4 hours.

Here's the error I keep getting when I run: 'rake run:android' just in case someone has any ideas:)

THIS TOOL IS DEPRECATED. See --help for more information.
