Enabling Android USB Debugging in Fedora

To Enable USB Debugging, Enable it in the Android device by Applications–>Development–>Enable USB Debugging.

Then you need to add the following file (rule) to the udev rules directory :

su –
vi /etc/udev/rules.d/99-android.rules

Add the following code to this file :


Here idVendor means your device vendor, so change it accordingly. For more details, refer this


After saving this file, run this command to reload the udev rules.

udevcontrol reload_rules

After that, Everything will work!…

  1. If you are facing the following errors while connecting to device :

    $ adb usb
    error: insufficient permissions for device

    $ adb devices
    List of devices attached
    ???????????? no permissions

    Try this solution :
    $ adb kill-server
    $ sudo adb start-server

    $ adb devices

  2. Thanks! I’ve never had much success with udev before (particularly when trying to configure a microcontroller usb programmer), but this worked at first try!

    I’m not sure if my Fedora version is too old or what, but, for me, to reload udev rules, I had to use

    # udevadm control –reload-rules

  3. I’m not sure where you’re getting your information, but great topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding
    more. Thanks for wonderful info I was looking for this information for
    my mission.
