Connecting and debugging your application with your phone on Ubuntu 9.04

After a long time, i'm back with an android post. This time is how to connect your g1 to Ubuntu 9.04 (im using 64bit). I won't explain that detailed coz i found an article that could help you with the detailed explanation. Anyway here's how i made it.

* Alt + F2, gnome-terminal then enter

* type: lsusb
look for and memorize the words after ID and before the colon(:) :
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bb4:0c02 High Tech Computer Corp.

* sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/50-android.rules

paste the following to the file (the {idVendor} is the one you memorized previously)
* SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666"

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

* sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart


Done with the ubuntu's part, now on android's part
* go to tools folder of your sdk

* sudo ./adb kill-server

* sudo ./adb devices

If it still doesn't work, try connecting it to your computer's back usb post or change the usb cord (coz some usb has lower power then the others)

If you want a detailed explanation on the Ubuntu's part
