Troubleshooting ADB Device Connection Issues
If you’re experiencing issues with connecting your ADB device to Windows 11, there are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the problem. First, make sure your device is in developer mode and that USB debugging is enabled. Check the device manager to see if the device is recognized and listed under “Android Device” or “ADB Interface.”
If it’s not recognized, try using a different USB port or cable. You can also try restarting both your device and computer. If the issue persists, try running adb devices in the command prompt to see if any devices are attached.
If the device is listed but still not working, try running adb connect to establish a connection. You may also need to run adb shell to access the device’s command prompt.
If you’re using fastboot, make sure your device is in bootloader mode before running adb fastboot commands.
If all else fails, try reinstalling the device driver and updating your Android SDK platform tools in Android Studio. With these troubleshooting steps, you should be able to get your ADB device connection working on Windows 11.
