ZTE Open C – Getting ADB to work

ADB stands for Android Debug Bridge and is a required for almost any hack on the phone. I noted here all the steps necessary to get it working on Ubuntu 14.10.

First, on the phone, enable “Remote Debugging” in Parameters > Informations > More informations > Developers.

Then on the computer, install adb :

$ sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb

And configure udev rules :

sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/60-firefoxos
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="19d2", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="18d1", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev"

Then after rebooting both computer and phone (I don’t think it’s really necessary), I managed to get :

$ adb devices -l
List of devices attached 
8a1e6c6                device usb:3-3 product:ZTE_OPENC model:Open_C device:ZTE_P821A10

I noticed that the phone needs to be turned on (I mean, on the home screen to get info).

Those resources were particularly useful:
