We have a patch in the works for Xcode 8.1 support, we will create a new 1.2.x release shortly.

thanks for that good news.

Dear kurul,

we cannot reproduce your second issue. Did Android Studio bring up any exceptions, error messages, etc., when you tried to open the project in Xcode?

No, there is no log or any exception in android studio,
in fact it is not so important for me, i can reach xcode project from finder.
If you did not encounter with that problem, maybe my project configuration causes, i dont know.

Dear kurul,

we just released Multi-OS Engine 1.2.4. It should fix Xcode 8.1 related issues.


1.2.4 released alrady ?


Hi Ivan,

yes it was, see above.

Best Regards,


How do i update the eclipse version ? There;'s no respond when I click look for update.



you only need to update the Gradle plugin dependency in your build.gradle file to pull down the new SDK. The Eclipse plugin does not need an update for Xcode 8.1 support.
