General :: How Come Windows Recognizing Phone As Linux File-cd USB Device
Mar 15, 2013
Ive hooked my phone up to my pc so many times without error when I had Windows on my PC...and used ODIN to flash back to stock after a mishap.... I cant even count.. within last two weeks Ive moved to ubuntu instead of windows..I set up everything on my phone on ubuntu..sdk and everything...so Ive been building a rom for the fassy and i was testing something I made and something went wrong..so I now have no recovery..no way to get my phone back..Im up and running on the rom but it will not due ( no gaaps ) . So when i plug my phone into a windows pc it will not recognize it for ODIN...in device manager it labelled as " Linux file-cd gadget USB device" and cant install the driver to use ODIN.
when I connect my Sony Xperia T to my home computer, the ADB driver will be installed properly. When I connect the same phone to my work computer, Windows just doesn't want to accept the drivers. The following things are equal:
- USB debugging is always on on the phone
- Both computer are running Windows 7 64bit
- On both computers I am pointing the Windows driver installation at the same folder with drivers downloaded from Sony.
The thing that is different is the device ID that Windows reports in the Details dialogue from Device manager:
On the home PC it is: USBVID_0FCE&PID_5182&REV_0228&MI_01 USBVID_0FCE&PID_5182&MI_01 On the other PC where things go wrong it is: USBVID_0FCE&PID_5182&REV_0228 USBVID_0FCE&PID_5182
So it seems Windows is not recognizing the phone as a composite device (MI is it multiplexing identifier?). I double checked that USB debugging is always on and also rebooted Windows.
i have search the web/forum for a windows app that running on the PC you can see at least the apk icon, I have several apks on my PC but when I'm looking for an apk, is hard to remember the name or when trying a new apk is not enough just looking for the name, I may be more visual guy that if I see a nice icon I will try it jajajja.I just found this thread but look die..URL...
is there some application or dev that can easily do an apk viewer, just looking inside the APK folder on the /res/drawable/ the apk icon shows, but how to make it shows at the apk compressed file.
I am working on putting the new update on my wifes phone and I already installed the drivers needed on my windows xp but everytime I plug in my wifes moment it says USB device not recognized. One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned! I've tried everything I installed from sprint download site. I have tried Samsung studio. Also the tethering site. Also just the drivers nothing seems to work.
I have Lenovo s650 which I want to root. I did some research and found some different ways of doing this. However, since I'm on Ubuntu I wasn't able to apply any of them. Is there a way to root my phone from Linux, not from Windows?
kies don't recognizing my device (Galaxy S3) & I never face problems by installing kies 2.5 on my laptop which runing with windows xp service pack 3 , by connecting my phone with kies it just freezes on connecting window also in device manager showing exclamation mark on samsung mobile MTP device
see the images :
I also tried this [SOLUTION] Samsung Mobile MTP Device -- CODE 10 error at Devicemanager but this solution was on win7 can do any thing more to solve it on win xp sp3
my problem is that my device (LG Optimus L7 II Dual) has a 2gigabyte free internal memory in hand for apps,musics,movies and others,now i have bought a new SD card (8gigabyte) for it,but, the device only know the internal memory az sdcard0 and every app i install has putten in internal memory.
how can i move apps to external sd card (it doesn't have any root method till now) and how can i declare the new sd card as the default sd card to my device for whole proccesses????
I've been looking around for a solution to this - and so far have only found Gmote to be close to what I'm looking for. Actually Gmote hits it on the head, but I wanted to see if there were other options. Here's the setup:
We have a soundboard and speaker system. I would like to hook up a small PC (running either windows or Linux) to the soundboard so that whatever is playing from the computer will come through the speakers. And to control what gets played from the computer, I would like to use my Android phone.
I would consider streaming from my phone if it was reliable enough. I had first looked into streaming to the system via bluetooth - but that wasn't quite stable enough and dropped out too many times.
Android file transfer won't recognise my HTC one running 4.3 when connected,I tried using it on Windows on the same Mac via boot camp and it works, it's just the Android file transfer which is not detecting the device it says "connect the device via the cable" well something like that.
I want to install a Bluetooth Application over my G1 device in linux environment.Please any Body provide me the procedure for this ? Whenever i am installing the application following error was thrown:-
I want to run an Android application on Windows using eclipse that has been already developed on Linux OS. I tried to copy the source/res and menifest file of Android application form linux and started creating a new project on windows. I tried to replace the source/res and menifest of newly created Project on windows with one on linux. It was unable to generate R.java file.I wonder if java is portable accross platform then why I couldn't create and compile a new project on Windows from Linux.
I'm new to Android development, and am attempting to run a test application on my actual device. I followed the instructions at http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/device.html (and related links), but the Android Debug Bridge (adb) doesn't recognize my connected device.
Some quick background info, I'm running WinXP, developing with Eclipse, with a Motorola Droid running Android 2.1 as my physical device.
An overview of the steps I've taken: Installed the Android SDK, downloading all necessary packages. Enabled USB Debugging on my device. Connected Device via USB, installing the driver from the SDK folder.
I'll stop here (though I continued to setup my application to be debug-able in Eclipse), because I at this point I noticed a problem.
Running "sdkoolsadb devices" at this point (at least, by my understanding), should list my device as connected. However, running this yields only: List of devices attached
My device recognizes that it's connected to a computer in debug mode, and my computer recognizes the device. However, I can't seem to get the sdk to recognize it. I'll leave out the steps I used to setup Eclipse for debugging on a device, as it doesn't seem relevant to the problem. I'll include them if requested.
I already have experience with setting up virtual machines, running them and other minor tasks. Im a gamer, so I wont get rid of windows (for now at least...) but I do want to be a great programmer and to be involved with the Open-Source community Id like to know if its a good idea to do my programming in linux through a virtual machine, vs giving it a partitioned section of the HDD. Id like to know about performance pros and cons and functionality.The type of programming I intend to dive into : Android Dev, Web Dev, Desktop Dev...More Android and Web right now though. I do web designing as well, so dreamweaver is added as an "essential". But im sure I can do dreamweaver files and upload them to the server after programming in Linux...Right? And any info on IDE's in Linux for the above mentioned are appreciated, but i would prefer going the coding route and understanding the essence of whats happening "under the covers".
I've installed AndroidSDK and have the drives download but every time I point Windows to the folder it says no drivers were found for my device. I'm trying to do this with the phone being recognized as an ADB device.
I got the PC to recognize my phone by installing HTC Sync but in the Device Manager it still shows a yellow exclamation point.
When I troubleshoot it, it says Windows can not launch driver "Error 37". Anyone know what's wrong? I have my phone rooted using the PB00IMG.zip file but can not complete the recovery partition due to the Windows not being able to communicate with my Eris.
If you've upgraded to official froyo you probably know that downgrading can be difficult, especially if you have an SLCD screen. If you did a branded upgrade (e.g. Vodafone) then the old methods won't work at all.Since current rooting methods won't work on froyo this can be a big problem.I've created a tool that will downgrade Froyo to stock 2.1. It requires a goldcard if your phone is branded. The download details as well as instructions can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=768256
Today I woke up to my phone charging by the night... but it downcharged to 15% of batterry. I reboot it and find out that my SD card showed up info of being "empty". The minitool partition wizard on a PC shows me that info:
no no, the memory card is 8GB not 32MB. How to recover the partitions? Also, the SD card has been partitioned for use with app2sd programs with this tut: [URL], because my phone (HTC Explorer "Pico") has a very small amount of internal memory. The rom was stock though.
Of course I could re-format it, but I don't want to, because the data stored there was very special to me. I want to recover it.
Is there an app that will let me run window shortcuts/commands from an android device? For example, here is what I'm trying to accomplish:
1. I have 3 monitors but due to limitation in my video card, only 2 monitors can be shown at a given time.
2. I want to easily switch between them using the phone instead of from the PC.
3. If you have windows 7 you know that to switch displays you can press the windows+P keys and then toggle between 4 different display options. I created shortcuts for this since I only need one of the display options, not all 4. So I just have to double click and it'll quickly switch, cool.
4. So now I just need a way to be able to run that shortcut away from my PC.
Is it possible to have a TCP/IP access to Windows 7 PC from Android device (create a LAN between them) using just direct connection via USB cable, without wifi or bluetooth? I already have it working using wifi, but I am also interested in just USB cable way.
I do _not_ need to use PC's internet connection, I only want to access the PC itself. I want to access HTTP/FTP/SSH servers on the PC and its samba (Windows Network) shares via Android CifsManager app.
Is this possible using "reverse tethering" solution which is used to access PC's internet connectivity on Android device and uses some 3rd party app? Is there a simpler solution without using 3rd party apps? Is this possible somehow via adb?
My Android device uses Android 4.0.3 and is rooted. My Windows version is Windows 7 64-bit.
So I have a Samsung Vibrant (just got it recently) and I'm having problems when i connect it to the computer. It gives me an USB device not recognized on my windows 8 computer. I have spent all morning searching and reinstalling drivers and trying my old pc and new cables and i found out that my old windows 7 computer with 4GB of ram and an overloaded hard drive will detect my device the problem there is it not my main computer and i don't want to have to connect all the vga cables boot it up connect mouse and ets to use this computer just to be able to copy files, and do other things from my computer to my phone I don't know why my main computer dell inspiron windows 8 will not work when it was a couple of days ago when i had a problem with connectivity and had to flash back to stock but now it wont connect.
Here's a list of things i've tried installing kies installing adb again aoi tool and then drivers a bunch of different drivers found on the forums different usb cable
