Install app on Motorola Backflip from AT&T - 02-02-2013, 05:42 PM,

I'm trying to test an app out on the Motorola Backflip with AT&T as the carrier. I checked USB debugging on the phone's Development screen.

Using Eclipse, how do I get the app to load on the Backflip so I can test it? DDMS shows a device with a bunch of question marks and unkown. Seems that it only gives me the option to load the app on the SD card which doesn't do me any good.

I searched and found a Motorola driver which I'm supposed to install to the adb folder. Where is that folder? I've checked the phone and on my development machine. Maybe I need new glasses?

More info:

I have Run set to manual. When I click on run I get:

Choose a running Android Device:

Serial number ????????

AVD Name N/A

Target Unk

State ??

and the OK button is greyed out so all I have left is to Cancel.

Still trying:

I don't know if this helps but in DDMS the following messages show up:

[2010-03-28 19:20:41 - ddms]execute: running ls -l /

[2010-03-28 19:20:41 - ddms]Got reply 'FAIL', diag='insufficient permissions for device'

[2010-03-28 19:20:41 - ddms]execute: returning

Did what Commonwares suggested:

eric@i7Linux:~/Eclipse3.5/android-sdk-linux_86/tools> ./adb kill-server
eric@i7Linux:~/Eclipse3.5/android-sdk-linux_86/tools> ./adb kill-server
eric@i7Linux:~/Eclipse3.5/android-sdk-linux_86/tools> ./adb start-server
* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *
eric@i7Linux:~/Eclipse3.5/android-sdk-linux_86/tools> ./adb devices
List of devices attached
???????????? no permissions

If you are using Eclipse. when you run the application it should automatically set your phone as the target and push the apk to the phone and execute it. You might have to set your phone as the target instead of the emulator.
