Hi I was wondering if there was a command similar to fastboot's -i in adb. I'm currently trying to find my device in adb, but I could only target the device in fastboot with -i and the vendor id (I got it with lsusb -v) and got nothing in adb. I added:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0x1f3a", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev"

to /etc/udev/rules.d/android-51.rules to try and get it to come up in adb but nothing came up in the devices list (I saw on a tutorial that it would make the device show up). Thanks!

    Your final objective is to get the device detected by adb. Correct? And you think the approach in title is the way to go. Right? // Which Android device, version are you using? What OS are you using on PC? // Are you having the same problem noted here? – Firelord Feb 12 '16 at 6:30
  • I'm using a Ubuntu (chroot on a Chromebook), and my android version is 4.4.2 Kitkat (I think ill check), and kinda but not the exact same problem.. But close enough that ill look at it, but i don't have ~/.android/adb_usb.ini – Bob Smith Feb 12 '16 at 18:42
  • I've always just plugged in an android-51.rules file that I find online... you can modify it if needed to support your device. Try this one: github.com/M0Rf30/android-udev-rules/blob/master/… – Daniel Nugent Feb 12 '16 at 18:53
  • Also, instructions here: github.com/M0Rf30/android-udev-rules – Daniel Nugent Feb 12 '16 at 19:05

This should work pretty fine: lsusb (Windows)


lsusb -v (Linux)
