Sick and Tired of the AutomationTool

I use UE4 4.7.1, and after almost a year of trying I still can’t build one apk android package, now that Andoid SDK paths can be set up from the editor I tried again with 4.7 several times but to no avail.
I used to have issues with the automation tool with windows builds as well, I have Windows 8, and Precompiled UE4.7.1 any help would be appreciated.
