Whenever I run
adb devices it says
Error: device offline - This appears even when no device is connected at all. It won't even let me start the adb server. Therefore solutions like "run
adb kill-server first" won't have any affect.
Things to note:
- This is adb on another android device. I can not "re-install the android SDK platform" or something like that. It took me a long while to find the ARM binary for adb that works.
- From googling around, I suspect it might be that the adb binary is outdated, however it seemed to work recently for other people on XDA-devs. If anyone can provide me with a newer version of adb as a binary that will run on an ARM platform (android), I'd be happy to try it out.
- Yes, I do run
adbas superuser (root). Other commands (like
The tablet runs android 4. The phone runs android 7 but that shouldn't matter since even without anything connected I can't even start the adb server on the tablet.
Edit: Using the adb binary from here solved the error, but presents me with this now:
# adb devices List of devices attached * daemon not running. starting it now at tcp:5038 * * daemon started successfully * ** daemon still not running error: cannot connect to daemon at tcp:5038: Success
