Could not find gradle wrapper within Android SDK. Might need to update your Android SDK.

the following worked for me:

There is nothing wrong with your gradle installation nor with your Android SDK. It looks like an error specific to cordova 6.2.0 and was fixed in cordova 6.2.1. At the time of writing, cordova installed 6.2.0 instead of version 6.2.1, so you need to manually update.

  1. Hi,
    I have a similar problem like you had with flashing an Esp-01. But I have a NodeMcu (ESP-12E with USB serial, all 3.3V) instead of an Uno.
    Do you think this will work the same, without voltage divider, of course?
    And wouldn’t it be possible to simply use the arduino IDE for flashing? After all I’d like to flash my own sketches not some downloaded image.
