I don't think my app is being deployed to the device.


I have got back on with an Android app this morning I was working on a few months ago. There are some very strange things going on.

The app now builds and deploys (if it really is deploying) in a matter of seconds (like 4 or 5 secs) and is up and running, unlike a couple of months ago when a depoy/build would take upwards of 2 mins (testing on real Samsung GS3).

When the debugger is stopped on a break point very weird things are happening, the pointer will jump about inside a case statement. Variables that should be populated with data, appear empty then mysteriously populate with what should have been in there earlier.

Stepping through with the debugger, on certian lines it seems to take a while to process even though it is just writing a value to a variable.

I have absolutely no idea what is going on, the project seems to build fine though.

I get the feeling that the new app is not actually being deployed to the device and is kind of debugging with an earlier version of the app on the device. This is just a guess though.

Anyone any idea's as to what is going on?

I am using VS2012 and Xamarin.Android 4.10.02012 (fa498e8d)

    Go into project settings -> Mono Android Options

    See if you have "Use Fast Deployment" checked. If you do, uncheck it and try if that helps. I was experiencing the same issue with VS and changing that setting helped.

    It's not that, good idea though.
