Multiple offline devices attached

This was driving me crazy this morning as I was debugging using G1 phone on Eclipse. Basically the Android AVD Manager sees multiple offline devices attached, although they are all the same device (sometimes it sees one online device sometimes none online device); despite that “adb devices” reports the correct info about device attached.

So basically Mr. Mark Murphy’s suggestion solved my problem:

1. Unplug all devices from computer and shut down all instances of emulators;

2. Run “adb kill-server“;

3. Run “adb devices” and you should see an empty list of devices;

4. Plug back in your device or re-lauch emulator. Now hopefully AVD Manager should now act normally.
