== Prerequisites ==
 
 
 
The device must be connected to the Linux host with the USB cable all the time, unless told to reconnect.
 
 
 
==Configure the host device==
 
 
 
Install Android tools.
 
 
 
On Ubuntu do:
 
 
 
sudo apt-get install android-tools* ubuntu-device-flash phablet-tools
 
 
 
 
 
Connect the device and type:
 
 
 
lsusb
 
 
 
an output like this will come out:
 
 
 
 
 
Bus 004 Device 010: ID 18d1:4ee1 Google Inc. Nexus 4 / 10
 
 
 
18d1 is the vendor id, 4ee1 is the product id.
 
 
 
Numbers may change with other devices.
 
 
 
Create /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules with:
 
 
 
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="18d1", MODE="0666"
 
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="18d1", ATTR{idProduct}=="4ee1", SYMLINK+="android_adb"
 
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="18d1", ATTR{idProduct}=="4ee1", SYMLINK+="android_fastboot"
 
 
 
 
 
replace vendor and product identifiers with yours.
 
 
 
Now Reload uev's rules to make these changes effective:
 
 
 
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
 
 
 
 
 
Reconnect your device.
 
 
 
Type:
 
 
 
sudo adb devices
 
 
 
your device will be listed.
 
 
 
## Unlock the device
 
 
 
Go to the bootloader:
 
 
 
* Power off the phone
 
* Keep volume down and power pressed together until the bootloader is shown (the bootloader has an android with the lid open like this: http://www.androidcentral.com/sites/androidcentral.com/files/postimages/684/android-az-bootloader.jpg)
 
 
 
From the Linux host type:
 
 
 
 
 
sudo fastboot oem unlock
 
 
 
 
 
Select "Yes" on the phone using volume keys, confirm pressing the power key once.
