I've bought a Firefox OS mobile lately and I thought of flashing it with a new version of Gaia. According to MDN, I gotta set up ADB in my computer. I've done all that. But, over the last few hours, I'm having a major trouble connecting my device to my computer. In order to make-reset Gaia, I need to have connected to my device.

I ran lsusb, and I've found this as my device

Bus 002 Device 043: ID 1782:5d24 Spreadtrum Communications Inc.

So, I updated my 50-android.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d with the following information:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="1782", ATTR{idProduct}=="5d24", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev", OWNER="wafflespeanut"

I also tried the methods suggested by this answer & this answer, which didn't make a difference :/

Every time I made a reasonable change, I rebooted my system. For other minor changes, I just pull the cable, logout/login and try connecting it again.

But, despite of whatever I do, whenever I run adb devices (along with udev restart, kill-server, start-server), I get nothing other than this default string.

List of devices attached

... which doesn't encourage.

So, is there anything I might've overlooked, or any ways at all to connect my mobile? Can you please help me out?

  • In my android-rules I only had to specify subsystem, the idvendor attr, mode, and group to get my tablet to connect to adb. Maybe try removing the other entries? Just a guess though. – Organic Marble May 30 '15 at 13:37
  • @OrganicMarble: Yeah, that's what I did at first. I added the other entries only when I found that the conventional ones had failed to work. – Waffle's Crazy Peanut May 30 '15 at 14:05
  • What version of adb are you running? – Organic Marble May 30 '15 at 14:10
  • @OrganicMarble: apt says that I'm running the latest version (4.2.2, I guess). – Waffle's Crazy Peanut May 30 '15 at 14:13

    I had to go install 1.0.32 for some reason. I don't know if that is worth the trouble for you though. – Organic Marble May 30 '15 at 14:26

Perhaps try installing version 1.0.32? I may have had to do that to get it to work. But it's been quite a while.
