Error: The new package is assigned a different UID than it previously held


#1

Trying to test an Android App via Sidekick, but keep getting this error on rebuild and Run on Device.

Error: The new package is assigned a different UID than it previously held.

How can I fix this please.

Hi @mrwrighty,

This is a known issue but extremely rare and we cannot reproduce it reliably yet. It might be related to this issue .

As first step, please stop Sidekick, kill all “adb” processes, start Sidekick and see if the issue reproduces.
If it does, please open a new issue on GitHub and attach the logs of Sidekick plus steps to reproduce the behavior.

Thanks,
Todor
