I get Out of Memory error when deploying Android project during Mandroid task.
Note that it happens mostly after cleaning. Usually it gets better on second build.

Restarting visual studio also helps (when rebuilding keep doing the same error).

Also, my assets are in the ~150MB range. Maybe something doesn't get released properly, and that's why it start failing after a few builds?
Comment 2 narayanp 2014-05-27 11:04:39 UTC
I have checked this Issue with following builds

VS 2013/2012
Xamarin.iOS for VS 1.12.278(X.Android

I am successfully able to deploye and launch android application multiple times even after cleaning solution/project.

@Virgile, Could you please let me know which Xamarin.Android build version you are using?
Comment 3 Virgile Bello 2014-05-28 22:03:52 UTC
Xamarin.Android (5e0ae4045013640a02bc8389e24ba654a3feb546)
Comment 4 Virgile Bello 2014-05-28 22:04:30 UTC
Did you try to put some huge assets (i.e. a 200mB file)
