Ok, I spend almost 100% of my day yesterday trying to get this sorted out and I'm at the point of giving up, every different problem I went through at least 2 pages of googling and tried everything I could imagine and it's been futile up to this point. I would hate to put it off but the problem has been so bad I might have too. I'll go into as much detail as possible and any help would be VERY, VERY appreciated.

Ok, first off, I had the JDK, SDK, and Eclipse properly set up. The emulator was too slow and everything crashed so I decided to download VirtualBox by Oracle, and hook it up that way via ADB and it was a complete success, I was happy and ready to spend hours learning how to code.

Then one day, as out of the blue as possible, Virtual box popped some kind of error on me, or something along the lines of that, I can't remember unfortunately. But now after trying to re install it and deleting ".virtualbox" in my users folder, it now just freezes up upon starting up the software and I haven't been able to do a thing about it. It looks like on the surface I am able to still use Eclipse, I wouldn't think otherwise because they weren't supposed to be reliant on each other.I tried connecting my android devices to them but to no avail, they detected the devices but using adb connect "Device Name" it said unable to establish a connection or something along those lines, either way no information and my googling has came up NOTHING that didn't involve their devices not being seen either so their troubleshooting was to no avail too unfortunately. I said screw it and tried hooking up a AVD device. Every blank was filled in and I had it installed but "OK" was grayed out no matter what I picked and SURPRISE, it gave me no reason.

I re installed Eclipse (a.k.a deleting the whole folder and dragging a fresh one in). I received problems like "Failed to initialize Monitor Thread: Unable to establish loopback connection" When I attempt to add the URL and I used https:// and http:// But literately just now as I'm typing this and tried it, It seemed to work but these errors still get in the way:

(Won't let me upload images yet)

I read over the log and it mentioned something in the .android directory, I removed it and reinstalled eclipse and that removed THOSE errors but these ones now pop-up

"Unhandled even loop succession."

I'm at an impasse and really need help/

Yes, indeed, you've managed to create a perfect storm of trouble for
yourself and it's going to take help likely from at least 2 different
sources to sort this out.

First, you've set up a virtual machine using Sun Virtualbox in which to
run an OS (that I don't think you named--Windows, Linux, ?).

Second, in that VM, you installed Eclipse from eclipse.org and the
Android Development Toolkit from Google. I've run Eclipse successfully
many times in a Virtualbox VM, Windows and Linux. I have not attempted
Android development from a VM, however.

Third, you've had some unspecific trouble with Virtualbox, but find that
Eclipse is still somewhat usable.

Fourth, you're trying to develop Android software and debug it using
adb, but you're having trouble connecting Android devices. These
problems are not trivial even when you're not trying to use USB
connections in VB.

I think it might be pretty challenging to juggle USB-mounted devices
through Virtualbox, but it can be done. This said, there are a great
number of variables to sort through. I would gingerly suggest you
consider reducing those variables hugely by eliminating VB altogether.
Run Eclipse on a good, working box and use the ADT's device emulator at
first. Get a good base for your application going in the emulator, then
connect Android devices and get that mode of development going. Then
later, if you want to push it, get this working in a VM. In the
meantime, you've bitten off more than anyone would want to chew.

Last, I think Eclipse is only a tiny part of this. What you are tempted
to think is Eclipse isn't in reality, but instead it's ADT (the Android
development interfaces, adb, etc. are all from the ADT plug-in).

For help with Android stuff, check out the following forums:

For help with Virtualbox, I'd try one of:

If you have trouble with the basic Eclipse workbench (it doesn't sound
like it), this forum is the best.

Best of luck.
