Setting up a Galaxy S for ADB

So, I thought it would be as easy as plugging the phone in, but it’s not, and obviously the drivers are impossible to find.

  1. Ensure application debug mode is turned on on your phone. (Settings->Applications->Development->USB Debugging)
  2. Plug the phone in (probably won’t automatically find the drivers – didn’t on XP anyway)
  3. Download the drivers from here: Samsung Galaxy S USB Debug Drivers @samsung
  4. Check your device is installed and connected by opening a command prompt and running “android_SDK_path/platform-tools/adb devices”
  5. You should then be able to ‘Run’ your application as normal from Eclipse and it will download it to your phone and provide you with debugging info.
