1. To follow these instructions, make sure you have the latest Cordova
distribution. Download it from and unzip its Android

Technically this isn't wrong, if you manage to figure out how to follow

Personally, I'd favor changing the instructions to use the normal `cordova
create` and `cordova platform add android`...

That said, I don't work on cordova-android.
