Android Build fails when the latest Android SDK Tools 25.3.1 version is used

Android

-

How to reproduce:
1. Update Android SDK Tools to 25.3.1
- In Mac open Android Studio -> Check for updates and update Android Studio version (might be not necessary)
- In Android Studio -> Preferences -> Appearance & Behavior -> System Settings -> Android SDK -> SDK Tools
2. Create a new Unity project
3. Build and run on Android device
Result: Build fails "CommandInvokationFailure: Unable to list target platforms. Please make sure the android sdk path is correct. See the Console for more details. ..."

Reproducible: 5.5.2p2, 5.6.0b11, 2017.1.0a3

Note: I haven't been able to reproduce this issue on Windows machine. As after update via Android Studio, SDK Manager still doesn't see SDK Tools 25.3.1 version and uses 25.2.5

Workaround for the customers.

1) just open https://developer.android.com/studio/index.html
2) scroll down to the bottom of that page
3) go to downloads
4) scroll down to the bottom of that page
5) find Windows "tools_r25.2.3-windows.zip" download and unzip it
5) find MacOSX "tools_r25.2.3-macosx.zip" download and unzip it.
6) In the SDK path replace the tools folder.

FIXED:
Unity versions: 5.4.5p2, 5.5.3p3, 5.6.0p3, 2017.1.0b3
SDK Tools have to be updated to 26.x.x

    I'm new to android development and I can't seem to build an apk.
    I've followed multiple tutorials and it still won't work.
    From what I have read here you need to use different versions of 'SDK' and 'JDK'
    Could someone link me to the exact versions I need to download.

    This is what worked for me....

    1.) Install JDK jdk1.8.0_131 and set it as the JDK Path in Unity
    2.) Delete android sdk "tools" folder : [Your Android SDK root]/tools -> tools
    Download SDK Tools: http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/tools_r25.2.5-windows.zip
    Extract the tools folder in that archive to Android SDK root
    Build your project

    This is still a problem and I can not find a copy of the needed file for the work around. Very frustrating!

    I'm using
    Unity 2017.2.0f3
    Android SDK Tools 26.1.1

    and this still exists. I work on Android Studio to build native apps as well, so downgrading is so annoying

    After I download the tools_r25.2.5-windows.zip, I can build to APK again, but I can't install it, certification error, so I also downgraded my JDK to 1.8.0 or Java SE Development Kit 8u151 in Java download page, now I can build my APK and also install it
