I'm trying to use my T Mobile locked LG G2X as a dev phone while I wait for my GNex4. I can't get the phone to be found by ADB. I installed the p999 driver from LG's website. This didn't help anything. I tried adding the VID manually to adb_usb.ini. The VID I found in device manager was USB\VID_17EF&PID_4807&REV_3134 so I entered the line 0x17EF into the file. This didn't help either.

How can I get the p999 working as a dev phone?

Does anyone know the right VID entry for the p999?

Also, when I plug the phone into my Windows 7 computer, the phone charges, but does not prompt any sort of device discovery message from windows... does this indicate some other problem? My USB ports definitely work.

My suspicions from the last part of my question were correct... Unbeknownst to me I was using a micro-usb "charge only" cable (I snagged it from a friend)... I didn't even know they made such a useless thing. Some of these are actually MORE expensive then a normal cable.
