Cool stuff. I’m just getting started with MOE. I had to do a few things to get it running under Java 8 which I documented here: http://webscale.plumbing/intel-multi-os-engine-and-java-8-android-studio
Namely, you have to enable Jack, give gradle a ton of memory, and add CompileOptions for Java 8.
If I just followed the instructions for the hello world app, and chose the Java 8 SDK, I got an error saying class version 52 (Java 8) was not compatible.
