Just want to post a solution to an error I was getting when I was trying to build my Titanium app for Android.

I always got this error

[ERROR] Application Installer abnormal process termination. Process exit value was 1

Turns out I had to set the API version in the tiapp.xml like this where my API version is 17

<android xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<tool-api-level>17</tool-api-level>
</android>

Hope this helps someone else.
