I have been trying all morning and half g today trying to get the bloody thing to instill. I have followed the instructions in the txt file inside but when I go into terminal and CD into the folder and type Android like the instructions day it cannot find three file or if I try it as ./tools/android permission denied and I sudoed in before hands so I have root access.
I recently switched over from Win 7 to Mint 15 and cannot get ADB and fastboot to work for the life of me! On Windows, I just downloaded and installed the Android SDK and had no trouble using ADB and fastboot to mod my phone. It is proving to be much more difficult on Linux.
I've searched Google, Linux Mint forums, and these forums; tried following numerous guides, and still my comp can't recognize my phone. Every time I type in "adb devices" I get "List of connected devices" followed by a blank line. No question marks and certainly no connected devices. "lsusb" shows my HTC One S as connected so I know it's not my USB port.
When I plug in my phone, I get an error message, "Unable to mount Android Phone Unable to open MTP device '[usb:002,005]'" and then a file explorer window opens displaying my phone contents anyways. Not sure if this could have anything to do with it but I thought I'd mention it.
Over the years I've been able to get my fiancee to (for the most part) comfortably use Ubuntu on my computers. Recently I got her to jump ship to the DI and so far she is loving it. My request now is, what is the EASIEST program to sync music with? (Obviously, it needs to be Linux compatible) I've never been a music/mp3 listener so I'm not real fluent on the best methods for storing/playing music. Do you keep all your music in one folder on your phone or SD card? Do you organize it via folders? Do you use the stock music player app? If you all don't mind, give me ideas on the best music management and I'll get her setup and running smoothly so she'll never look back to iPods/Windows again!!
I am attempting to install Ubuntu on my rooted Samsung Infuse 4G. I have consulted several how-to articles here and elsewhere, but after several hours of work I am still stuck on the final lines of code in the terminal emulator app that a YouTube tutorial suggested. Below is the code that I have entered thus far, and the error code at the bottom of the list:
----------------- Ubuntu Chroot Bootloader v0.1 Ubuntu Bootloader is now installed! This process does NOT damage Android OS!
I have tried two different installation methods. The first one focused on accessing the advanced shell through Windows Command Prompt. This didn't work because the prompt froze after I typed in "advanced shell" (several attempts brought same results) .
I then tried the "easy" version that involved the terminal emulator app in the place of the command prompt. Assumedly, if I can resolve this last issue without causing any more, I should be able to access Ubuntu through Android VNC. It may be important to note that the time before last when I typed in the above code, I got a different error code. That error read: losetup: /dev/loop1: no such device or address. I don't know what made it change.
I got a wacom graphic tablett wich I want to use on my Android Tablet PC. Of course Android hasn't got a working driver for it, so thats why I want to install an opensource linux driver. So my first question is, if this might be possible. The linux driver is made for a 2.6 Kernel which of course is not complete the same as my 2.6 android Kernel, but are they similar enough to at least give it a try?
And I got an other question: A grafic tablett is you know... nothing else as a weird mouse so am I might be able to tell Android that it shoud use a simple mouse driver for the graphic tablett? Because my mouse is running well on it.
Since it is a Linux running there i wanted to ask if it is possible to install programs like "apt-get", "man" and such things.I've already asked google, but it looks like everyone tells me to install apt-get via the packet manager from the distribution... and well i haven't seen apt-get in the market.Also is there a website which shows me some programs after rooting from which i can benifit with its use?
i successfully got into adb in recovery mode fairly easily on my ubuntu 10.4 laptop using the following method- this should also work for a linux live boot from a usb flash drive
in one terminal tail and follow log messages ~$ tail -f /var/log/messages
In another terminal run the loop
1. plugin usb and keep it plugged in 2. remove battery, eject sd card. 3. put battery in 4. press vol- and power 5. after around 6 seconds, your terminal with the log will show something like "new high speed USB..." 6. press vol- to select recovery 7. press the power button 8. IMPORTANT- as soon as you see a new log entry (something like "USB disconnect"), pop in the sd card
check your loop terminal for adb. if it doesn't work, repeat at step 2
how to flash a kernel using fastboot on os X. Therefore I've decided to add a new post about that on XDA for those who want/need to use fastboot on mac os X. Example given for a Sony Xperia ARC LT15i. This should work for any SE device but will need different vendor ID value for another Brand.
- Download and extract Android SDK (let's say on the Desktop for the rest of the explanation)
- Add "Android SDK Platform-Tools" with android SDK Manager
- Download fastboot for mac here http:[url]....
- extract it in android-sdk/platform-tools/
Configuration Next you need to update the PATH for tools/ and platform-tools/ folder. - Open Terminal app and type
Code: nano ~/.bash_profile - Add the following two lines and change the (username) with the name of your mac os X account name :
I have read other tutorials about the fastboot update command, but I do not understand how to make system.img from a zip Rom. How to install a Rom with fastboot? Cwm recovery can't read zip files for some reason.
i have root access, and full adb, but i cant get fast boot even with adb commands. i attempted to flash a faulty a20 tablet i had via sd install. and i obviously had a damaged flash, anyhow it wiped the tablet clean, the backlight still lights up. i can turn it on and off, and i can boot the boot loader.
is there anyway out of this, i want to install a recovery, but with no flashboot....
Well the script should be working, it is 'ettin.sh' now. To get VNC to work on separate device just change 'eth0' to 'wlan0' or whatever other interface you know how to configure, like usb maybe, in the 'init.sh' script that resides in ~/ on the images you can download from [URL]....
Also on the different roms your storage might be different so just change that to what suites your environment,
After my first launch and exiting the VNC on my laptop (Ubuntu) My phones home button and a few other functions stopped working, a reboot remounts the root and system partitions and it goes back to normal essentially, I haven't noticed any adverse affects after the reboot.
I want to connect to backtrack over usb from Ubuntu on my laptop instead of from my phone. Is there a good way of doing this?
The thing is, I didn't chroot, I mounted the image, copied the contents of '/etc/*' and '/sbin/*' to the '*/etc' '*/sbin' dirs of the mounted image. and then mounted it's (the image's) contents to Androids rootfs '/' then I set up a little script to set up the environment and execute '/bin/bash -i init.sh' and again reset PATH to include /system/*.
Then in the init.sh script I want to set up a way to 'vnc' through' usb to backt4acks desktop. How would I do this?
I have had my GNex since it was released. However, I just got a new computer. I am trying to set up everything again on my new computer. I got the drivers working to a certain extent. I can get adb to work, however fastboot does not work.
How to get fastboot working?
Screenshot showing adb clearly works prior to bootloader, but it stops working after going into bootloader. It seems to lose connection to my phone once it is in the bootloader. I tried this multiple times.
My phone's usb works pretty much perfect, adb and the usb storage are working (HTC One M7). But when i do "adb reboot-bootloader" the pc just says "the usb device fails to enumerate or something like that. Everything works except for Fastboot and i dont know why. Has it something to do with Win 8.1? I never tried it on another machine before.
I want to install ClockWorkMod Recovery on my Karbonn A18, i tried doing it using SP Flash Tool, but it gives various Errors, I want to know how can i get into FastBoot Mode in A18 so that i can install it through their ?
