    Hi,

    finally I made it to get adb working on Linux without having to struggle with Moborobo :)

    This will be of use only for a really SMALL part of the tablet users, but anyways - it is better to share every piece of knowledge than forgetting it without having told anyone...

    So, this only works on Linux (who knows why not on Windows, but the tablets of Nook have the same problem):

    You need a working connection to the internet for this! Also you need to be superuser for getting adb to work correctly

    1. Download the android SDK for Linux: http://dl.google.com/android/android-sdk_r21-linux.tgz
    2. Unpack it and go into your terminal
    3. cd into the unpacked directory into the tools folder and type
    Code:
    $ su 
    # cd ./android
    4. A new window opens. Wait until it updates what it needs to update. Then check only "platform-tools" and download it. When it finished, you can close the window
    5. Then type:
    Code:
    # cd ../platform-tools/
    # cp adb /bin/adb
    # echo 0x4E22 > /root/.android/adb_usb.ini
    # echo 0x1E68 >> /root/.android/adb_usb.ini
    # adb kill-server
    # adb start-server
    # adb devices
    And then you should see your device :)

    Way better than doing adb over wifi (for file transmissions, too)

    This should work also for many other devices which refuse to get working on Windows machines, the only difference is that you need to get the correct vendor ID from your device (connect it and then type lsusb. The result should be like yyyy:zzzz, to be sure, just add both values in UPPERCASE into adb_usb.ini:
    Code:
    # echo 0xyyyy > /root/.android/adb_usb.ini
    # echo 0xzzzz >> /root/.android/adb_usb.ini
    I know, it's a little noobish, but the important thing is that it works :)

    Hope this helps anyone!

    Regards
