All the other guides didnt work for me, but this was simple and easy to follow.

Ive encountered one problem and its device specific. My nexus 7 tablet works great with adb, but my htc evo 4g lte doesnt. its rooted, and running cm 10 4.1.2. its debugged any idea how to make it see the device?

UPDATE. so i turned on my usb storage on the device and it now sees the phone. Great work!!!!

Am i going to have to connect storage to mac all the time for this to work on any device?

What does it say for "adb devices"?

Do you have root access set to apps and adb in developer settings?

Try rebooting? Also, double check the nano editor to make sure you entered the text right, and make sure adb is set to allow root access on your phone
