I followed this guide: https://docs.unity3d.com/540/Documentation/Manual/Profiler.html My unity version: Unity LTS 2017.4.9f1 Platform: Android I did "build and run" according to the guide: I plugged the phone via USB cable. The adb console shows this: And the profiler window looks like this: See, there is no data coming up! I tried this too: Still no luck. I can profile via wifi but its horribly slow. So slow that I can not even play on mobile while I am profiling in PC; looked like I was rendering images one in every seconds or so. So I thought adb profiling can give it a good shot.
