It's been a while that I've been seeing people having problems to enable USB debugging and setting up the Android SDK to recognize the device. So,I've made a guide to help you enable USB debugging and set up the Android SDK accordingly. So let's begin!
What you'll need:
- Windows/Linux/Mac OS X with the Android SDK installed
- A Fire Phone
- At first,make sure you have the Android SDK installed,adb and fastboot working.
- Open the SDK manager
- Click on "Tools" and then click on "Manage add-on sites"
- Click on the "User Defined Sites" tab,click "Add" and paste this URL:https://s3.amazonaws.com/android-sdk...dist/addon.xml
- Click "Ok". Wait for it to finish. Then,from the repo of Android 4.2.2(API Level 17),select Fire Phone SDK and install it.
- Remove any Fire Phone drivers using device manager
- Go to the directory of the SDK and find this:
- Run the driver setup and connect the phone having USB debugging enabled. If you don't know how to do this,it's explained below.
- Go to Settings
- Scroll to the Device section and expand the section.
- Tap Get info about your Fire.
- Tap any item at least 7 times in 5 seconds
- Developer options will appear. Set it to On.
- Go to developer options and enable USB debugging.
