ADB for Android Developers (ARCHOS Internet Tablet)

How can I connect to my ARCHOS using the Andriod Debug Bridge (ADB)?

First make sure you are running the latest ARCHOS firmware. Connecting by this method will give you user shell privileges. Learn more to know how to use ADB on Windows, Mac or Linux operating system:
  • Go to the Android SDK page and download the latest SDK for your operating system.

  • For Windows users only: Install the Archos ADB USB Driver for Windows. The driver is available at the ARCHOS support ftp ( Instructions how to install the driver are available at USB Driver for Windows site on Android Developers.

  • Add Archos vendor ID (0x0e79) to adb_usb.ini in .android folder in your home directory:
    • Windows: echo 0x0e79 >> "%USERPROFILE%.androidadb_usb.ini"
    • Macos: echo "0x0e79" >> ~/.android/adb_usb.ini
    • Linux: echo "0x0e79" >> ~/.android/adb_usb.ini

  • For Linux users only: You need to add a udev rule if ADB only works as root:
    • Create a file /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules that contains the following lines:
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device",
      ENV{PRODUCT}=="e79/*", MODE="0666"
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="e79", MODE="0666"
    • Make the rule known to udev with the following command:
      udevadm control --reload-rules (or udevcontrol reload_rules on older systems)
