Update, he solved it:

I finally solved it, by removing .idea folder and all .iml files and imported project as new one.

I encountered this problem when i tried to import an gradle project from github. There was no gradle wrapper in the project. I created a new android project in android studio and copied gradle folder to the project that i get from github. Then in the settings of the project in gradle section,i chose the "use default gradle wrapper". Then problem is solved.

Try to change buildToolsVersion to 19.0.3 and don't forget to install it in the sdk manager

I started getting this error because I synced to a previous commit, which had a subproject with

    classpath ''

in its build.gradle. Changing this to 0.9.+ fixed the error.

I managed to resolve the same issue by downloading the desired version of gradle from the website:

Then i extracted the zip file and copied the iib folder into the Android studio gradle lib.

So for example:

Downloads/gradle-1.10/lib/ copy to /Applications/Android

Then reload android studio and it should work.

I recommend to use Gradle's newest version 1.11. The Android tools team will drop the support for older Gradle versions (that's what I would do).

After you've changed your wrapper from 1.10 to 1.11, you need to check that your wrapper is enabled in the gradle settings.

Don't forget to synchronize your project after that!

just delete gradle wrapper file and gradle properties file , and reload your project , auto update will make the rest
