Connecting Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 via adb on Ubuntu

At Google I/O, the attendee brought back Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1. I had a chance to touch it.

At first I tried to connect it to Windows 7 PC by USB cable. But it said failed to install USB driver. Someone said Samsung special develop tool includes the USB driver. But I don’t want install such kind of big software. I just want USB driver for GLAXY Tab. I thought NexusOne’s USB driver might work with small change of configuration file, it didn’t get well.

However, when I tried from Ubuntu virtual machine on VMWare it worked fine. I show you what I did.

Checking vender ID of USB

Connecting GALAXY Tab with USB cable and disable USB host connection and enable USB connection of VMWare virtual machine. Then use lsusb command.

$ lsusb 
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04e8:685e Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

It shows vendor ID is 0x04e8, product ID is 0x685e.

Adding udev rule

$ sudo vi /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules 

Add a line below.

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="04e8", MODE="0666"

Then restart udev.

$ sudo restart udev
udev start/running, process 28938

Connecting via adb

 $ adb devices

 * daemon started successfully *

/proc/cpuinfo shows 2 armv7 processor is running, no NEON and only 16 double registers at FPU.

I remember this target’s CPU is Tegra2 and they say it doesn’t have NEON.
