I'm trying cyanogen's mod approach to root my Defy. I can do
adb shell, it works as intended. But after I run
adb kill-server and try an
adb shell I get
error: device not found
It seems my phone just decides to not be connected anymore when I call
kill-server. I need to physically reboot it and start everything again.
This is the complete command session I did:
[~]$ adb devices List of devices attached 0A3AA8D5195599849BN device [~]$ adb shell $ exit [~]$ adb kill-server [~]$ adb start-server * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 * * daemon started successfully * [~]$ adb devices List of devices attached [~]$ adb shell error: device not found [~]$
This is driving me nuts. I've searched about this problem, but there simply isn't a solution in entire Google's database. I want to use this rageagainstthecage root approach because I can see the exploit source, I'm a little nervous about using something in my personal phone that I don't know what it does (an explanation about rageagainstthecage, and a compact explanation)...
Anyone here at SE network have seen a similar problem - or have a suggestion?
I'm doing this in a Macbook Pro machine (OS X 10.6.8). My phone has Android 2.2.1.
(PS: Even without using the exploit, just doing
adb kill-server and
adb start-server, my cell phone isn't shown anymore on
adb devices, thus receiving
error: device not found. So this seens to be a problem with
adb devices, it automatically starts the server. So, if you try to run
adb start-serverbefore doens't matter, you receive the same
error: device not found.
adb kill-server. I have to physically reboot my phone. :/
