Android G1 debugging on Debian with adb

In this post I will demonstrate how to connect your G1 to your Debian system and accomplish tasks like debugging your application, getting shell, installing applications, transfer files to both directions etc.

The instructions on the official Android Developers site http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/device.html are focused on Ubuntu, but there is a very close procedure to connect your device on Debian.

First, login as root

create the file /etc/udev/rules.d/50-android.rules
and write

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666"

save and exit.

Give the necessary permissions to the file:

chmod a+rx /etc/udev/rules.d/50-android.rules


restart udev daemon

/etc/init.d/udev restart



For the following step, you must have the android sdk installed at the path both of root and your current user. Info can be found here

ex: in my .bashrc there is the line

export PATH=${PATH}:/home/ventrix/bin/android-sdk/tools


Then still as root, type

adb devices

and you should see your device.

If not, try the

adb kill-server

before running the adb devices command again.

Now you can start playing with the Android Debug Bridge (adb).

Enter adb to find out the options and commands.

If you have more than one phone connected, or the emulator, you can issue commands with the -s flag followed by the device id to target your connected device.
ex:

adb -s emulator-5556

to connect to the emulator device.

Developing with eclipse will automatically detect the connected devices and let you choose the device you want to deploy to.

More info about the adb can be found here: http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/tools/adb.html

Connectivity to the adb can be archived by EVERY G1 (unlocked or not, rooted or not), not only the developer's G1.
