How is ADB working if the phone is not recognized? What is working and what is not exactly? – kraxor Jul 6 '14 at 15:26
@kraxor adb devices command is giving List of devices attached. My phone is Samsung Galaxy S4. – Lazy Jul 6 '14 at 15:44
Does the device show up in the file manager? Do you get a prompt the phone to allow the computer to connect to it? have you enabled debugger mode? – user238802 Jul 6 '14 at 15:57
Debugger mode is enable but I can't see device anywhere. Computer does not detect phone. – Lazy Jul 6 '14 at 16:10
What are you trying to do? Accessing files on the device? adb? fastboot? – LiveWireBT Jul 6 '14 at 19:43
