I just downloaded the SDK and tried to open the emulator but, even though the emulator showed, nothing appeared on the screen of it, also, the new hardware comes with a dual core, so how can I give my emulator two cores?
The emulator takes a while to load. I know I killed it several times thinking it wasn't working. You just have to wait for it to finish loading. I don't think the emulators have support for dual cores yet.
