Configure LINUX/UBUNTU to use ADB with Mediacom Smartpad 850i

I had some problem to make this tablet working with ADB and ubuntu. Finally I found way…


Connect the tablet to pc with cable. Be sure to have Usb Debug Mode active.

Find your tablet Vendor id.

For mediacom it shoud be 2207

$ lsusb
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 2207:0000 Google

$ sudo su
# mkdir ~/.android

# echo "0x2207" > ~/.android/adb_usb.ini
# cat /root/.android/adb_usb.ini

# cd <path-to-your-adb-command>

# ./adb kill-server
# ./adb start-server

Create the file /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules containing:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="2207", MODE="0666"

Restart udev

# /etc/init.d/udev restart

Disconnect the tablet and connect again. Try

# adb shell

You should get root access on your tablet. If you get errors regarding device not found try to reboot your pc and retry.
