Android Studio on Mac OS X - Unable to find a valid JVM

After doing a little research, it looks like the creators of Android Studio made a quirky decision to want to enforce the use of Java 6 on Mac OS X platforms, presumably to have better font rendering. They did this by putting 1.6* in their Info.plist file instead of 1.6+ (and they’ve done this in more than one version of Android Studio. This image (from this link) shows the suggested way to fix the problem, but you can also edit the Info.plist file to solve the problem.
