When trying to debug a build running on emulator, the debugger startup process times out while “Pulling device files”.
It looks like it is pulling the entire libs directory (~55 MB) from the remote target:
adb.exe" -s emulator-5554 pull “/system/lib/” “C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Temp\Android\emulator-5554\system/lib/”
This operation just about completes before the timeout time for hardware devices but is slow enough to fail on the emulators. I also can’t seem to find an option to increase this timeout wait.
A couple of Qs:
1/ Why is it necessary to copy all the system libraries to the host PC, in order to start a debugging session?
2/ Is there a fix or workaround pending?
