(1) adb root or adb kill-server; sudo $(which adb) start-server --> adb shell rm /data/misc/adb/adb_keys (2)adb shell --> su --> rm ...

Though not directly related to your question, this does answer it in a very round-about way. I found this blog which gives directions on how to open the file and modify contents.

adb logcat outputs the BackupManager activities, so you can monitor if the process is running or stalled. Since adb logcat produces lots of logs from other processes, it is not easy to watch BackupManager logs. The easy way to watch BackupManager output is to use grep. adb logcat | grep BackupManager will filter only BackupManager logs.

You can use as many emulators on the same machine as you want, simultaneously, at the same time, there's no actual limit, as long as you have sufficient RAM in your computer to handle that many emulators. When you want to debug an app you just choose whichever emulator you need.

If you're on Linux, Adebar contains a tiny little shell script to convert ADB Backups (.ab) to tar files, which you then easily can investigate with any archive manager. Only limitation is: it doesn't work on password protected backup files. The basic command it runs (everything else mainly is a wrapper for command line options and syntax) is: dd if=$1 ...

My Asus Nexus7 (2012) will not show with lsusb, not with any of the 5 cables that with my nexus4 show fine. Usb port works for charging and I can read usb stick with specific cable and application, so presumably the usb port is working fine. I have added several versions of udev rules and tried connection in usbdebuggin mode, normal mode even fastboot mode ...
