"Waiting for debugger to attach" showing even when not running in debug mode

My problem:

I ran upon an awkward problem as I was developing my application. As mentioned in the title, every time I install my application (in run mode, not debug!) at start-up the waiting for debugger to connect.. message appears for 1-2-3 seconds, and the application starts.

What I want:

What I would like is to be able to start the application without that message appearing (it only started appearing in the last few days, and I can't remember changing anything related to debugging).

What I've tried:

  • I have tried setting the
    but if I do this the debugger never attaches and the message never disappears.

  • I have also tried after installing to disable
    USB Debugging
    , but still no results.

  • Even if I kill the application and wake it up through an external source (it uses Google's C2D Messaging Framework) it still tries to run in debug mode on wake-up.

I have developed several Android applications and never stumbled upon this. Why wouldn't I be able to start the application in RUN mode? Is there any other way to install the application on the device, without hitting the run button in Eclipse?

I can post code-snippets from the AndroidManifest or from other parts of the code if necessary, but as I already mentioned I wasn't getting this kind of weird behavior several days ago.


Make sure your java files dont have any break point and Restart the device every thing should be normal.

I was experience the same problems where my application was always being run in debug mode. Restarting the device did the trick for me.

and make sure you are using
