    'POST /element' cannot be proxied to UiAutomator2 server because the instrumentation process is not running (probably crashed). Check the server log and/or the logcat output for more details

    Hey guys,

    I came across this hack challenge for enhancing Android libraries. I thought of sharing it with you all. It has a cash prize of up to 10 lakh rupees.

    I submitted my idea. You guys can also participate.

    Hi all,
    how can I enter text with 0.5-1 second delay? setValue() doesn't work for me, because dropDown doesn't appear after setValue().

    The method below returns the wrong characters.

    text = 'karm'

    WebDriverIO, Appium, iOS driver = XCUITest, Adndroid driver = UIAutomator2

       public static type(element, text, isErase = true, maxDelay = 500) {
        if (isErase) {
        const charList = text.split('')
        for (let i = 0; i  <charList.length; i++) {
          driver.pause(Math.floor(Math.random() * maxDelay))

    In output I got something like yv...'

    Hi..is it possible to automate ios using appium on ubuntu system?
    Hi All, I am trying to launch an iOS simulator with the latest iOS version i.e. iOS 15 with Appium 1.21.0, and getting "ECONNREFUSED" It was working fine with iOS 14.
    Hi All, does Appium support automating hybrid apps on Windows and Mac? I noticed that getContextHandles and context are not available on Mac and Windows(https://appium.io/docs/en/writing-running-appium/web/hybrid/). Does this mean that Appium cannot be used for hybrid apps on the desktop? Are there other ways to workaround?

    Hi. While testing for basic auth on an iOS device, found that with Appium 1.21.0, the basic auth feature is not working. I am doing the following -

    1. Go to https://guest:guest@jigsaw.w3.org/HTTP/Basic/
    2. Print title

    For other Appium versions (example - 1.17.0), I get the page title. But for Appium 1.21.0, it comes out as empty. Do tell me if logs are needed for the same.

    Running wdio against appium and every time we try to switch context appium fails to start chromedriver with the error
    InvalidArgumentError: invalid argument: cannot parse capability: chromeOptions from invalid argument: unrecognized chrome option: androidDeviceSerial
    I suspect this might be a backward compatibility issue, as we're using an embedded system with chrome 74 (and thus chromedriver 74) but we've been unable to resolve this. Any ideas?
    The issue is that androidDeviceSerial is an option Appium adds automatically to the chromeOptions. I haven't found a way to disable this.

    Good afternoon I am doing maintenance to an android application and when I try to run it generates the following error:

    A problem occurred while evaluating the ':app' project.

    No method signature: build_8an4x2x2y9wjeapitti2nrs3dls.android() is applicable for argument types: (build_8an4x2y9wjeapitti2nrs3dls$_run_closure1) values: [build_8an4x2y9wjeapitti2nrs3dls$_run_closure1@e26d03a]

    Has anyone had the same thing happen to them?

    When starting an android application, I get the error "'com.package.MainActivity' never started". However I see that the app did in fact start, but it is waiting for input. Can I just skip the error and begin automation?
