Why is this happening?

There is a lib and it is in


The problem was multiple.
In my case cygwin did not report the errors but only log them in make.log.
and the real problem was that libgnustl_static.a was not readable.

the fix:

reinstall android-ndk-r8

still libgnustl_static.a was not readable.

chmod -R 777 /cygdrive/e/cocos2d-x/ (yes I run as an administrator but still I had to do this)

compile and run in android (not the emulator)

Good luck
