Currently hitting an installation problem on Android.

The message I get is 'Internal error'

I can't find a way to get more info.

This is wasting my time... and might waste your's too - is there any way the error message could be made more verbose - e.g. explaining the error or adding a line about where to find out more info.

The full stack trace should be in the MD log file, but you're right that we should probably output it to the deployment log too.

XS now print better messages, in particular device disconnections.
