hi there,

I doesn't install android sdk on my computer, but I have adb command which have proved capacity to connect my android phone.

I try to use command " adb connect ip:5555" to pe, but it failed. even failed when I connect with usb.

Any suggestion about adb connection with PE?

All the best!

I asked the same question on Android Police and it seems that Entourage blocked rooting through adb.
I wonder if you could do it with an older version of the OS. If so, could you upgrade to Ermine after the device is rooted? If anyone has figured a way around the adb block please share.

windows was currently looking on windows update for a driver for "edge" I clicked on stop looking and it asked if I wanted to manually find a driver. selecting yes and pointing it to the google usb driver directory worked, and adb devices now lists something for my edge.

Still doesn't understand, where is the google usb driver directory? When I uninstall the usb device, refresh it, yes, the edge device comes out but there's no option for me to update driver? only option allow me to check the info of device.

Any further tips?

1.USB Debugging - on PE Settings->Applications->Development->Enable
2.On your PC - Device Manager->Disk drives->uninstall Linux File-CD Gadget USB Device - both
3.Connect PE to PC using USB
3a. Win 7 should find proper driver and a new device like
HTC Dream Composite ADB Interface
should appear under ADB Interface group.
3b. On Win XP you should download Android SDK. Under there is usb-driver.
When XP reports it found new device manually select google's driver.
On XP I had to do it twice. I don't remember device name exactly, but it like
Android ADB Interface
under Android Phone

adb itself is under platform-tools.
