When I attempt to connect to my phone via adb it tells me my public key's fingerprint is this:

But on my computer, per this post, my public key's fingerprint is

will@linux:~$ awk '{print $1}' < ~/.android/adbkey.pub | openssl base64 -A -d -a | openssl md5 -c
(stdin)= 3c:be:86:c7:68:f4:36:7f:f9:d7:29:92:2d:d0:3b:0d

which is different, and also much shorter than the fingerprint displayed on the phone (32 characters long vs 64 for the one displayed on the phone). Does android now use a different method of generating the fingerprint than the one in the linked thread?

I'm running android 5.0.1 with adb 1.0.36, revison 7.0.0_r1.

This is the full public key for reference:

Check the user ID you run your adb server under. If it's different from will - you would need to compare your fingerprint with the key in that other user's home dir.
