With the latest MfA I don't see that error. Instead JetBoy crashed with this

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

This looks like SurfaceHolder.LockCanvas() returned null, which (according to my googling results) could happen for this reason:

By "API 15 emulator" I assume you mean the armeabi-v7a emulator (given that the x86 API15 image was just recently released).
