Problem in connecting Host machine & i.MX53 through adb in newly ported  android 2.3.5 (imx-android-r10.3) through mini USB cable

Discussion created by Srinivasan on Jan 7, 2012

Dear All,


When i tried connecting my Host PC & i.MX53 QSB with android 2.3.5 (imx-android-r10.3) (newly ported android image on i.MX53)

I finished the following steps:

  • the mini-usb cable is connected between the host usb port and the target’s USB OTG port
  • Turned on "USB Debugging" on your board. On the board (UI screen)-
    • Go to home screen, press MENU,
    • Select Applications, select Development, then enable USB debugging.
    • Alternatively, you can navigate to Settings->Applications->Development and then enable the "USB debugging" option.
And i executed the following steps:

C:\Users\Srinivasan\android-sdks\platform-tools>adb devices
List of devices attached

The device was not detected in the newly built android 2.3.5 (imx-android-r10.3) for i.MX53 QSB

But when it tested with the prebuilt image which was provided in the i.MX53-QSB-Android-Gingerbread-Release4.1

I was able to detect the device as following:

C:\Users\Srinivasan\android-sdks\platform-tools>adb devices

* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
0123456789ABCDEF device


But i want the the device to be detected in my newly ported android 2.3.5 (imx-android-r10.3) image on i.MX53 QSB


Could you please let me know is there any drivers needs to be configured in ported kernel or there is any other way to make the device to be detectable,

As am new to this, kindly do the needful as soon as possible,

Any kind of help w.r.t this would be greatly appreciated,

Awaiting for your reply,

Srinivasan S
