            Android: dalvik killing app due to ANR when in debugger breakpoint
            Asked 2019-Mar-08 at 20:58

            On an Android 4.3 embedded (custom) device, I am trying to debug my app by setting a breakpoint in a Service sub-class onStartCommand method. When I am paused at the breakpoint dalvik kills my app due to ANR not realizing that I am debugging.

            The logcat shows:

            In developer settings, there is an option called "select debug app". Click on this and select the application you will be debugging. This should prevent any ANRs from occurring for that app, while you are debugging it. It also enables the "wait for debugger" option, which, if enabled, will pause the app as soon as it starts, so you can attach a debugger and debug the applications startup code, if necessary.



            Problem with restarting the app, after an ANR event
            Asked 2018-Oct-18 at 09:55

            I have implemented a ANR watchdog in my application using this GitHub repo. The watchdog monitors the UI thread and if it is blocked for more than 10 seconds, if restarts the app. My problem is it restarts the app twice, thus messing with all my logic.

            This is my implementation of the WatchDog :

            So I was finally able to solve this.

            System.exit() was not enough in my case. I had to call finish() or finishAffinity() on the activity which was causing the ANR.

            So in the
