I got a (rooted) nexus 5 (with twrp custom recovery), and I develop on it using android studio 2.0. Recently when I type in adb devices, it shows my device for a couple of seconds then it vanishes! ie

$ adb devices
List of devices attached
03a3d66d0a4e64bd    device

$ adb devices
List of devices attached
03a3d66d0a4e64bd    device

$ adb devices
List of devices attached

$ adb devices
List of devices attached

i tried everything:

  • changing usb port
  • adb kill-server then adb start-server
  • restarting phone
  • installing android 6.0.1 update..

any ideas?

this is my adb version:

$adb version
Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.32
Revision 09a0d98bebce-android
2

    Can you try with a different USB cable or altogether in a different PC with both same and different USB cable?

  • @Firelord it's inexplicable.. sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.. i'm ok with that but i would like to know a way to debug and understand why

I had this exact problem recently. I plugged the phone directly into the laptop instead of via a USB Docking station. Solved the problem. I have no idea why it does it.
