Configure adb fastboot driver under Linux - If you an user android smartphones, soon or later you'll need user some specific android tools likes ADB and Fastboot. There are some ways you can used, either install Android SDK and install some specific packages. In this tutorial, we'll use the second option.

Another tool is QtADB which based on ADB protocol. It allows under graphical interface to have complete access your Android device file system to manage an installed application. Well, let's start the tutorial!

1. Setup ADB Udev Rule

Install Android Tools adb and fastboot on ubuntu 14.04

Before accessing ours Android, you need to turn on the USB Debud mode, declare a corresponding Udev rule on your Linux. Now plug Android to your computer. Open Ubuntu terminal, type and run :

lsusb

Now we can see Manufacturer ID and Model ID. Example output :

Bus 002 Device 013: ID 0b05:5f03 ASUSTek Computer, Inc.

Next, declare some generic rules according the output given before located at /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules. You can download some generic rules for main Android phones manufacturers with this code :

# udev rule to detect android devices
# These rules refer to http://developer.android.com/tools/device.html

Throw this commands on Ubuntu terminal :

sudo wget -O /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules https://raw.githubusercontent.com/NicolasBernaerts/ubuntu-scripts/master/android/51-android.rules
sudo chmod a+r /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
sudo service udev restart

Explanation :
- Download android.rules and add to android rules
- Change permissions android.rules
- Restart udev for new rules

2. Install Android Tools

Just likes the first paragraph at this post we'll use the second options. Two android tools packages are now available for Ubuntu. It's adb and fastboot. These tools are needed to root android, flash a ROM, sideload an application. To install it with one hit, follow this command :

sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot

3. Update to ADB 1.0.32

Android 5.0 Lollipop needed ADB 1.0.32 to sideload your devices. We need install the update manually. Type and run this


wget -O https://skia.googlesource.com/skia/+archive/cd048d18e0b81338c1a04b9749a00444597df394/platform_tools/android/bin/linux.tar.gz | tar -zxvf -adb
sudo mv adb /usr/bin/adb
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/adb

You can look at the last of the output tell version of adb now on 1.0.32

4. Allow ADB trusted connection

All most of we know, from Android 4.2.2 a new security feature has been introduced within ABD, you must confirm on your devices that attached to a trusted computer before any dialog can take the place.

# adb devices
List of devices attached
E7AZCYXXXXXX unathorized

Look at your Android phone, when you plug using USB cable for first time, it will display a message asking you to allow connection to your computer as a trusted.

5. Problems device not detected

Some things you must check if your devices is not detected. They are :
  • ADB not installed on your system
  • USB debugging is not active (disable)
  • You maybe facing USB3 bug

For Zenfone users, you can download fastboot at Zenslaves : Root, Unroot, Unlock Bootloader, ASUS Zenfone 4,5,6 on Linux
