Default [Q] emulator-5554 (2 devices connected) please help

Dear smart people,

When attempting to root my phone, in command prompt I type adb devices and my phone shows up but also emulator-5554. It prevents me from rooting or much else because I get error -2 devices connected.

So because of this I tried lots of other options and I was afraid I might have done something wrong onto my phone and last night I flashed with lg flash tool to 11a.

I am back to stock. please help me with root and recovery install.

Thumbs up emulator-5554


emulator-5554 refers to your Bluestack application in windows

you need to stop or kill those services, to do it follow the steps

1. Open Run command: press start and type run ( or ) press Window key +R
2. type "services.msc" and enter
3. wait for some time and this should open a window
4. In the new window, select "BlueStacks Android Service" and click stop [you just need to stop that service]
5. Now check in adb with "adb devices"
6. This should have removed the additional emulator, so you can continue with the rest of the process

If above steps didn't helped then try "adb -e reboot"
Good Luck
