There are few things more frustrating than trying to install an Android app and finding out that you don’t have the proper drivers installed on your computer. Without them, the app will be rendered useless, and you’ll have to deal with annoying error messages that never seem to go away. Here are four easy ways to avoid this frustrating scenario and get all of your drivers properly installed before you try to run an Android app.
What you will need
If you’re developing on Windows, you’ll need to install the appropriate USB driver for your device. This is relatively simple, but there are a few things you’ll need to make sure of before you begin. The first thing is that when you search for a driver online, it should be compatible with your specific version of Windows (or Mac). There’s no point in installing one that isn’t compatible as it won’t work. Secondly, even if you download the wrong driver by mistake and try to install it, Windows will stop you from doing so and ask if you want to keep or delete it. When this happens, don’t worry; just delete the wrong driver and go back to searching for the right one.
Step 1. Download ADB with platform tools
Before you can start using ADB, you’ll need to download the platform-tools package that contains it. You can do this by heading to the Android Developer website and clicking on the Downloads link. From there, scroll down to the SDK Platform-Tools section and click on the link for your operating system. This will download a ZIP file containing ADB and other platform tools.
Step 2. Enable developer options
If you don’t see the Developer options item right away, then you’ll need to enable it. To do this, go to Settings > About phone and tap Build number seven times. You should see a message that says You are now a developer! Go back to Settings and you should now see the Developer options item. Open up Developer options and scroll down until you find USB debugging. Toggle the switch on if not already enabled.
Step 3. Setup USB debugging
First, you need to enable USB debugging on your Android device. To do this, go to Settings > About Phone and tap the Build Number seven times. Then, go back to Settings > Developer Options and enable USB Debugging. Now plug in your Android phone or tablet to your computer with a micro-USB cable. If you are using a Windows PC, start Device Manager by right-clicking My Computer or This PC and selecting Properties.
Step 4. Run adb devices
If you see a device listed with unauthorized, then you’ll need to accept a prompt on your device. If you don’t see any devices listed, then your drivers aren’t installed correctly. You can try downloading and installing them again, but if they still fail to work correctly you may need to contact your manufacturer for help.
Step 5. Push the APK
5. Once you have the APK file, push it to your device using ADB. You can do this by opening a command prompt or terminal window and navigating to the folder where your APK file is saved. Then, type in the following command: adb push name_of_your_file.apk /sdcard/name_of_your_file.apk. This will push the file to your SD card so that you can install it later.
Step 6. Go back and click on Always allow from this computer
Now that you’ve downloaded and installed the driver on your computer, you need to go back into your phone’s settings and allow your computer to access it. To do this, go back into your phone’s settings menu and find the Developer options section. In there, find the USB debugging option and toggle it on. Then, plug your phone into your computer via USB cable. A pop-up should appear on your phone asking if you want to allow access from this computer; click Allow.
Step 7. Uninstall current version
If you have a current version of Android drivers installed on your computer, you’ll need to uninstall it before proceeding. To do this, open the Control Panel and select Add or Remove Programs. Find the listing for your driver software and click Remove or Uninstall. Confirm that you want to uninstall the program and then follow any prompts that appear. Once the driver software is uninstalled, you’ll be ready to install the updated version.
Step 8. Install new version by clicking Open folder
You’ve just updated your Android drivers! To install the new version, click Open folder. You’ll see a list of files inside. Click on the one that’s called install. A window will pop up asking if you’re sure you want to install this file. Click Yes. The installation process will begin. Once it’s finished, click Close. You’re all done!
