Unable to import Eclipse project to Android Studio

I had to edit the gradle wrapper settings in gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.properties and change gradle version to 1.9.

./gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.properties :

I had to change gradle-1.6-bin.zip to gradle-1.9-all.zip. I guess the old ADT plugin from eclipse which generates this file still uses the old URL.

Then I had to create a local.properties in project root and set correct SDK dir in it.



Did that and imported using default gradle wrapper and voila! The project imported without any problem.

Notes: This also fixes the issue with org.gradle.tooling.GradleConnectionException: Could not execute build using Gradle distribution ‘services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-1.6-bin.zip’;.: Could not execute build using Gradle distribution ‘services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-1.6-bin.zip’; You must also make sure that in the file ./build.gradle, com.android.tools.build:gradle:0.5.+ should be changed to com.android.tools.build:gradle:0.7.+.

If you are still experiencing problems with import, open up the project root in command line and run ./gradlew or gradlew.bat according to your os. You’ll be getting errors with more debug info and maybe tips on how to solve them.
