Find the reason and implement a solution to solved it.
because the ps command on fire phone output format is,
USER PID PPID VSIZE RSS OOM WCHAN PC NAME
root 1 0 932 460 -16 ffffffff 00000000 S /init
and the normal android ps command output like this,
USER PID PPID VSIZE RSS WCHAN PC NAME
root 1 0 932 520 c025f414 0001da80 S /init
So i think that the Xamarin Studio cannot parse the output string format correctly.
My solution is ,
1. root the fire phone first.
2.replace the ps command in the /system/bin/ folder on fire phone.
ps: I pull the same version's ps command file from the simulator, and it works well.
Hope this can help you guys.
I was able to debug against my fire phone using the latest Xamarin. If you are still having issues, please reopen this bug with a the latest version information that you have.
