Question [Q] [ADB] my s4 mini will not come online

Hi people
I have the GT-I9190 S4 mini running 4.2.2 [not rooted], and am trying to connect to my pc with adb for installing apps etc.
The problem is:
I have enabled debugging on the phone, and when i start adb on the pc and query devices:
Code:
List of devices attached
#######        offline
Then I went and googled about this, and a site said that from 4.2 upwards, android will prompt for confirmation whether the connected pc is trustworthy.
My phone did not ask. in fact, while i try anything on adb, my phone does nothing. If i was a phone i would also ask my owner if someone is allowed to poke in my back door but whatever.
to summarise:
adb lists phone as offline, phone doesn't acknowledge adb trying to connect

I think you need to update or reinstall SDK if you are on windows.

I think you need a more recent adb, there's a change from 4.2 on, you don't really need full sdk.
