USB debugging

    JorgeA , Sep 23, 2015 :
    I'm trying to use the USB debugging (under Developer options, etc.) and when I plug the phone on to my laptop I am meant to get a message asking me to "authorize" the laptop so then I can do stuff with it. However, I don't seem to get this message at all, and the Bacon Root Toolkit I am trying to use does not "talk" to the device at all. This seems to be the only obstacle so far, so I am wondering if anybody can help me resolve it.
    Thanks a lot in advance.

    PS. I'm on YOG4PAS1N0 (LMY48B), not rooted.

    If it doesn't talk, I think you have to install the adb drivers on you PC by clicking the install drivers button.

    I did, following their instructions to uninstall all existing drivers first and then installing them from their own software. Everything was "installed" but still no luck with the communication between devices... Thanks for your time Paul, really appreciated.

    Nor do I but the lack of communication between devices leads me to think there should be a request to "authorize" the device. Furthermore, there is a "Revoke USB debugging authorizations" option:

    When I debugged and got developer access, mine didn't get any messages about authorization for a laptop. It just automatically opened up the stuff (mac air).

    Mine works fine and says nothing about "authorize"... Where did you hear that anyway?

    Try the Samsung drivers, that's what I've been using

    Are you using adb or just have it on?

    I don't get this message at all, and since there seems to be no communicaiton at all between devices I thought this may be an issue. I have installed adb as well but nothing changes....

    As I can see from your picture USB debugging mode switch is disabled. Enable it and reconnect.

    Like this post? Did it help? Please give a like to it. Don't be shy. I won't tell.

    Hi Lakis, yes, when I took the screenshot it was disabled, but I've enabled it now and still no luck...

    On your PC try to unistall any usb drivers you might have installed and try a fresh install of ADB drivers. Lets take one step at a time.

    So after uninstalling all the usb drivers for the OPO (including some I had left from a previous Samsung), then reinstalling them again, I managed to do a good back up, which was the main purpose of the exercise. I even got the "authorize computer" message!

    However, I am not entirely convinced the whole issue has been 100% resolved, but for now I will leave it as it is.

    Thank you all for your comments and suggestions!

    In my case I went to the developer options and changed the "Default USB configuration options" to FileTransfer. Then ADB prompted me the permission alert.
