I am using the command
adb.exe -s emulator-5554 install -r ba.apk
to install an application onto an emulator (MonoForAndroid_API_10 emulator). The results show
78 KB/s (7048697 bytes in 87.593s)
which shows that it takes 87 seconds to install. This is too slow to be useable as I am installing to multiple devices as I am developing and debugging.
When I use the same command to install on a cell phone attached via a USB cable the results are
1965 KB/s (7048697 bytes in 3.502s)
Under 4 seconds is perfect.
If I installed directly from Visual Studio 2012 to either the emulator or the cell phone, the time is 15 seconds.
My question is whether there is a way to make the installation to the emulator as fast as to the cell phone.
