Using Android hardware devices on Ubuntu

I’ve been working on some Android applications lately and switched to Ubuntu for this. It took a while to figure out how to set up USB debugging on Unbuntu, but the steps below worked nicely for me.

  1. sudo vi /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
  2. For each vendor add: SUBSYSTEM==”usb”, ATTR{idVendor}==”0bb4″, MODE=”0666″, GROUP=”plugdev”
  3. chmod a+rx /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
  4. sudo restart udev
  5. adb devices (your phone should be listed there)

(Tested on Ubuntu 11)
