Android developer—among other things

Building Android For New Devices

If you’re building Android for a new device that’s still in development, you need to add it to the file at /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules to access the device1.

To do this, you need the idProduct and idVendor of the new Android device.

lsusb -v

This command lists all the USB devices connected to the system and can be used to populate the 51-android.rules file.
