Is your targetSdkVersion set to 'android-L' by any chance? I had this issue too, and I was able to fix it by changing targetSdkVersion to 19. You can check the targetSdkVersion in the AndroidManifest.xml file. Also, you might want to figure out what version of the Android operating system you have on your phone and make sure the minSdkVersion in the AndroidManifest.xml file is set to that version or an older version.

Hope that helps!
