Android: Deployment failed. FastDev directory creation failed

When starting the application with the Xamarin studio sporadically the above mentioned error occurs, instead of deploying the app to the phone and starting it the following message is displayed: "Deployment failed. FastDev directory creation failed".
Luckily this error can easily be fixed: Therefor you have to deactivate under Project Options (rightclick on the project in the left panel, Options) under Build - Android Build "Fast assembly deployment".

  2. Right click on the Solution Explorer by the right hand side of Visual studio. If solution explorer is not there go to View-Solution Explorer . Right click on the android project and you will see the android build. Uncheck the fast assembly deployment. Hope I was able to help.
