My LG G3 phone (phone is rooted; OS is Android Fulmics) is recognised by my laptop when I plug it in. The laptop is running Ubuntu 18.04 and I can easily copy data from and to my phone.
I have recently installed the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) (
sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb). Then, I wanted to reach my device and typed
When functioning properly, it should return something like this:
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 * * daemon started successfully * List of devices attached 5200d6fd904b2200 device
But when I tried it, it returned this:
List of devices attached * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 * * daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached appeared first and no device was listed.
When I type
adb devices again, I get this:
List of devices attached
I have also tried to use
sudo adb devices instead of
adb devices but the results were the same.
When the ADB would work, I would try to use it for data recovery purposes as described here. Maybe the
pull command can do what I want.
