Using adb with Wileyfox Swift/Swift2/Swift2 plus
If you've got one of the nice new Wileyfox Android smartphones then of course you'll want to use the Android debugger with it. This should be easy, and in the end, it is. However, there is currently one important piece of information that you need.
consistently told me that there were no devices, despite it showing up on
lsusb. I tried various suggestions, such as use ptp rather than mtp, but none of these worked.
There are two possible problems that we've come across:
- Android debugging is not enabled.
To enable this go to Settings/Developer Options and there should be an "Android debugging" switch, which needs to be enabled.
- The second requirement is to put the vendor hex string into an initialisation file on your adb machine. Add the string
0x2970to the file
Before adb will recognise your devices you need to run
Then try running adb devices again and it should recognise your Wileyfox.
