Intellij Stuck Uninstalling Adobe AIR Apk File on Android Device

Answered

This was working fine before on this device (Samsung Galaxy S4), but now it juwst hangs on the "Uninstalling [Project Name]" part.

It works fine on the emulator, and even in other android devices it is working fine. I truied looking through the phone to manually delete the app file, but it is not there! I also tryied changing the name of the apk file and some other things in the descriptor xml, but that hasn't seemed to help at all. :/

Can someone please help?
What is going on and how do I fix it?

IntelliJ IDEA uses ADT tool from the AIR SDK for working with Android device. If progress never ends that most probably means that ADT tool hangs. You can check it using some OS process explorer. I guess you'll get the same if you start ADT with the same parameters from command line. I'm afraid I have no ideas about the reason.

Also having this problem suddenly. The compiler was working 5 mins ago and now gets stuck at uninstalling as in OP's picture. Anyone figure this out?

Hi Henryah93,
First of all, make sure that you have configured the Adobe AIR module according to our official guide.

If everything is fine with that, please create a new request in YouTrack and attach a bit more details for further investigation. Unfortunately, the problem is not reproduced for my AIR demo project.

  • Which Adobe AIR SDK you’re using? Make sure that you have downloaded the latest version: Download Adobe AIR.

  • Does it work if you manually package the app from the terminal using ADT?

  • Can you share the sample project via HTTPS where the problem is reproducible?

  • Catch a thread dump from (Help -> Dump threads) when the Uninstalling … process hangs.

  • Collect the IDE logs.

Note that most probably it's the ADT tool that hangs for some reason. If you get the same result when running ADT with the same parameters from command line then there's nothing we can do with that on the IDE end, unfortunately.
