Can't Debug with Eclipse Plug-in for Mac Tech Preview

I've got the Eclipse Plug-in for OSX installed and configured and I'm unable to get it to connect to the device (9800) via USB. I've installed the BlackBerry Desktop Manager so the USB drivers are available. The projects build and package without error. When I attempt to debug, immediately after the signature tool disappears I see "signing complete" in the console, then the screen on the device flashes very quickly and then nothing happens. It doesn't appear to be copying any of the COD files over to the device. If I view the debug configuration and select "attach to specific device" the connected device shows up so the device seems to be connected properly. Has anybody gotten this to work?

Re: Can't Debug with Eclipse Plug-in for Mac Tech Preview

I don't have a Mac but I had a similar issue with a Torch. Try rebooting the device then your computer.


If that does not work, enable Mass Storage Mode on the device. Those are the three steps I took to get Live Debugging to work and I believe Mass Storage Mode actually got it working.

No mac here either but I've had lots of trouble debugging with the Torch using the JDE.


It seems extremely flakey.

Re: Can't Debug with Eclipse Plug-in for Mac Tech Preview

I've tried rebooting both the device and my computet and still nothing. I even tried doing a security wipe on the device. It seems to be a problem with the plug-in. If I reboot into my Windows Bootcamp partition I can get it to attach to the debugger. I guess I'm still stuck with that...

I'd say make an Issue Tracker log with the steps you did to install Eclipse, the Plug-in, the example code, Torch version, etc. I mean it is a beta, if you found a problem it's best to let them know know then when they say it's done.


One other idea; does it say what Eclipse version is required? Because on Windows you need 3.5 but people have tried to install 3.6 and all they get are errors, that might carry over to the Mac version. Just thinking.
