Starting with Android 4.2. developer options are hidden by default to clean up the options menu. They're nice for debugging but some overlay options may be very alienating for average users when they're accidentially enabled. On Android 4.2 and newer, Developer options is hidden by default. To make it available, go to Settings -> About phone and tap ...

Enabling USB debugging essentially starts up the adb daemon on your device, which allows it to communicate with adb on another device to enable debugging commands. It's used when developing and debugging applications, and allows you (primarily) to: Transfer data between a computer and your device (both ways) Read log data easily from logcat Debug ...

Go into settings > about phone Toward the bottom of the list, you'll see an entry for "Build Number" Tap it 5 times and you'll see toast pop-up letting you know that the Developer Options have been enabled. Go back to the main options menu and tap Developer Options and you'll see a tick box for USB Debugging about halfway down the list.

It's usually located in Settings > Applications > Development Of course, you could just perform a quick and easy root by installing Universal Androot as detailed here - http://androidadvices.com/root-unroot-samsung-galaxy-5-i5500-easy-tutorial/2/#.UF3Qi1H1pjc

You need to include the port number. adb -s 192.168.60.69:5555 shell If you're using a sensible shell with configurable tab-completion (i.e. not Windows), then you can type adb -sTab to get a list of devices.

Try adding adb's folder (platform-tools) to your PATH. The adb executable used to be in the tools folder on versions of the SDK up to v8 IIRC, but it was moved in v9, so ddms.bat is probably looking for it in the wrong spot. See also this thread on StackOverflow (accepted answer there courtesy one of our mods here) to see if this is in fact the issue. ...

Do you have "{} Developer options" under Settings menu? If yes, go to Settings->Developer Options and uncheck the boxes under "Input", "Drawing" "Monitoring" sections. I presume these should be not available with standard ROMs (i.e. produced by carrier/that come with phone). In that sense, I am bit surprised on why you have it, unless you have CM's or ...

No, you don't need to install the Android SDK. The SDK's drivers don't work for the Galaxy S, actually, at least not the last time I tried. You best bet is to download Samsung Kies and update the drivers through it, as per this answer to another question. You can get Kies most easily from Samsung UK here.

If the sound is what you don't like, on some phones the sound can be turned off by disabling USB Debugging. Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debugging. However, on some other phones, this will not change the sound that gets played when you plug it in. To actually remove the notification, as previously mentioned, you'll need a custom ROM to do ...

It looks like you are calling the application by the wrong name. It is ADB not ABD. The message you posted from the console is when the file (or command) doesn't exist in the current directory (or in the environment path) It stands for Android Debug Bridge.

Is your USB Debugging mode enabled? Go to Settings->Applications->Development, and check the "USB Debugging" mode. This will help the ADB detect your device. You may refer to the Android Developer Documentation: Using Hardware Devices for further information and details.

The easiest way to get this driver is from the samsung website. There is a link to a download that installs only the driver (none of the bloat). See http://stackoverflow.com/a/11851697/1427165 for more details.

I have followed the Exact steps from Link : Samsung mobile MTP Device cannot be installed StackOverflow tutorial Here are steps : (for Windows specific instructions): Ensure phone is not connected to PC. Uninstall KIES from PC. Reboot your PC and Reinstall KIES after that. Just for great measure... open KIES, go to Tools | Troubleshoot connection ...

There was (and still is) such a tab. It's called File Explorer, and by default it shows up in the same part of the screen as the Threads and Heap views. If you've hidden it in the past, you can show it again from the Window menu → Show view, or by pressing Ctrl+3. (Thanks to Edgard Leal for suggesting the keyboard shortcut.)

I found the solution: Assuming you have debugging mode enabled, you have to change the USB settings to Internet Connection: Modem or ethernet. Keeping it on Charge Phone, Media Sync, or Camera does not enable debugging.

If you're looking to change the default size for a log buffer, to persist between reboots, you can recompile the kernel with updated buffer sizes. The file containing log buffer definitions is: <kernel>/drivers/staging/android/logger.c The versions I'm looking at use a macro to define log buffers in that file: DEFINE_LOGGER_DEVICE(variable, name, ...

To find out the actual size of the ring buffer, you can use $ adb logcat -g To adjust the size of the ring buffer, you might try $ adb logcat -r <kbytes> At least that's what some tutorials say. For more details, you might want to read "adb logcat" Command Options and Log Buffers. P.S.: I guess those settings (manual adjusted ring buffer size) ...

The Droid X does not have a physical keyboard - but if it did you could try this in a terminal. I'm leaving this answer here for other phones that have busted screens. setprop persist.service.adb.enable 1 That turns on USB debugging (on a HTC Dream running RC29), and is one of the ways to root the Dream when it has a busted screen.

Use the drivers that come with the android SDK. The samsung drivers do not work once CyanogenMod is installed.

The Prime uses a proprietary cable, but it supports a USB connection to a computer via that cable (which you can see in this image from Engadget which I posted in another question). The fact that the connector isn't a micro USB port has no bearing on whether or not you can connect over USB (see: every Samsung tablet).

Have you installed the USB driver? You need to install the USB driver to use development tools in Windows, they have to be downloaded and installed separately. For your device Micromax A50, try the following guide.

An Android device in "Mass Storage" mode behaves just like a USB flash drive: It presents itself as an block device that can be mounted (i.e "used") by the host PC. Just like an USB stick does. Additionally "USB Debug Mode" can be enabled, which creates a new USB endpoint for the Android Debug Bridge (adb). This allows an user to get in-deep access to the ...

After connecting via USB and receive the message "connecting as installer" on your phone's screen, make sure you're phone isn't on the lock-screen and swipe down from the top (or at least on my Verizon device) you can access "USB PC connection" settings under the "ongoing" tab. Check one of two options, MTP or PTP. This would be the same pull-down where you ...

I had to download Samsung's USB drivers for this device from their support page. After you have the driver installed, when you plug in the device, Windows search windows.com for updates and finds: Samsung mobile usb composite device Samsung-sgh-i317 Samsung mobile usb modem Samsung Android ADB Interface Now, the interface still shows the "Connected as a ...

This is part of a Core system in android. It can not be disabled unless you have a ROM that allows you to disable it. I believe 6.x versions of CyanogenMod have/had the option to disable it. I am not sure if your phone is supported, and I am not sure if that option is still there (since my device doesn't have "official" support currently)

Recovery mode is used mainly by carriers/manufacturers for replacing bad firmware that causes the phone to be otherwise unbootable. Users can install signed update.zip packages (such as OTA updates) through it as well. It does not run a full Linux kernel. Custom recovery modes such as Clockworkmod exist also, which allow more complex things such as full ...

The adb likely won't be of much help. The apps need to have debugging enabled to be able to see their thread and relative performance I believe. I assume you've looked at the battery usage menu in your phone. What is it telling you? You could the hidden debug menu in your HD. It may provide more info. Open your phone dialer and dial *#*#4636#*#*. ...
