Question [Q] Silly question?!?!? Can I make an application debuggable without root?

Hi all,

I'm guessing that the answer to my question is "you can't you fool!" but I wanted to ask anyway.

Is there any way to make an application debuggable without having a rooted device and without having access to the actual code itself.

As I was writing this I realized that there is another possible "solution" can I make an application debuggable on a rooted device and then somehow move that application onto a non-rooted device?

Thanks!

It is absolutely not possible for non-rooted devices as far as I know. By rooting, you will attain privileged control over the device that you are using. This attainment makes it possible to make an application debuggable in a rooted device.

I ask a simple question: What don't you root?

You will love your device after rooting.

Instead of looking impossible solutions for non-rooted device, you can root your device and start debugging in it.

Well maybe I should have asked another question because this device was rooted but I lost root in an OTA update. I didn't want to go back to rooting it because of loosing all of my settings but my feeble mind just remembered that unlocking the boot loader is the part that wipes the device (right?) so I should be able to re-root the device.

Any good articles I should read on re-rooting after loosing it due to an OTA update? (Other than just googling for stuff. )

After you root your device and unlock boot loader, download any advanced root App manager (Ultimate Backup/ ROM Toolbox) and freeze Software Update (2 apps in Samsung). It will never bother to notify and never OTA update.
