I'm trying to remotely debug Chrome on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4, but I can't seem to get it working.
Note - to eliminate a device problem I have also tried to use an HTC One M8, but that also would not work.
Having reviewed the requirements from the Chrome remote debugging page -https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/docs/remote-debugging - I believe I meet all of the requirements -
- Mobile device - Chrome 42.0.2311.111 (Lollipop 5.0.1)
- Device used for debugging - Chrome Canery 44.0.2394.3 (Windows 7)
- USB Drivers - Downloaded and installed from the Samsung website
Both devices are connecting to my laptop without issue, and I can transfer files between the two, however USB debugging is not working.
According to the above guide I should see a notification entitled Allow USB debugging? However, this notification is no where to be seen, and consequently the device inspector (chrome://inspect/#devices) is reporting no devices detected.
I've found many similar questions that advise the user to focus upon the USB driver, however I have ensured that I have my manufacturers latest version installed and I have had no success.
Is anyone able to advise on what I may try next?
Edit - I forgot to mention that I have also looked in to downloading the Google USB driver - http://developer.android.com/sdk/win-usb.html#download
However, I'm running Windows 7 x64, and it appears that these drivers are only suitable for x86 installations.
I have also installed the ADB plugin for Chrome Canery, but once installed the plugin notifies you that it is no longer required.
