It has been a while since I last attempted to use the Tegra Debugger in Visual Studio. However, I’m re-evaluating its usefulness so I’m once again attempting to “Debug an Existing APK” as specified here: http://docs.nvidia.com/tegra/Content/Nsight_Tegra_Debugging.html.
I have replaced my device drivers with the one provided in the TDK, and also bundled the included gdbserver in my application. However, when attempting to debug the app on my Nexus 7, I get the error, “Failed to attach: Failed to start debug server on device: run-as: Package ‘com.ea.samplegame’ is unknown.”
Interestingly, using the same project on my Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300 yields much better results (everything succeeds), but I’m greeted with a License Error, “NVIDIA Nsight Tegra, Visual Studio Edition is not inteded to run on a non-NVIDIA hardware. Please visit Mentor Embedded … to request support for you hardware.” For the sake of completeness, I have already submitted a request.
