Getting ADB working on OS X
Hey y'all. I've had trouble getting my Triumph to show up in ADB on my Mac (or my Windows box at work for that matter).
I was going to ask y'all for the solution, but the "Here are the similar threads we found:" thing this site has showed me a similar thread for the Nook Color: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=919088
It turns out that despite Google's assurances that you don't need to mess around with configuration on the Mac, you need to add Hon Hai's vendor ID (0x0489, gotten from System Profiler) to the end of ~/.android/adb_usb.ini. Just so you know.
To reiterate, edit ~/.android/adb_usb.ini and append 0x0489 to the end. Then run adb kill-server. Then adb shell should work.
