In order to get root and use adb, most guides use the BQ Pascal 2 Windows drivers for Wolder Manhattan:
- Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
- Latest version of the Android SDK installed (adt-bundle-windows-x86\sdk\platform-tools).
I have followed the guide to install the drivers and they have been installed perfectly in Windows.
The device is shown in Windows Hardware Devices Manager as: "Android Phone - Android ADB Interface."
"USB Debugging" and "Mass Storage" is enabled and Im already "root" in my device.
Tests with adb versions:
Using adb.exe version 1.0.31 (from the latest SDK) (796kb) doesn't show any connected devices:
...\adt-bundle-windows-x8\sdk\platform-tools>adb.exe devices List of devices attached
Using and old adb.exe version 1.0.29 from 2012 (158kb), which is in the BQ Pascal 2 drivers, the device is shown:
...\Root Pascal 2\RooT\files>adb.exe devices adb server is out of date. killing... daemon started successfully List of devices attached 0123456789ABCDEF device
Why does the old
adb.exe version from 01/11/12 work and shows the device, and the lastest one from the Android sdk doesn't show anything?
I have also tested with other drivers but I get the same result, the device is only shown using the old
