Android insufficient permissions for device

Hi Friends,

I was having an issue when connected my friend's Micromax Doodle to my Ubuntu with the following error
"insufficient permissions for device"


  1. Open Terminal
  2. Kill the server by typing the following command
    • $ adb kill-server
  3. Now, start the server
    • $ adb start-server
  4. On your device, a pop-up might come asking for granting the permission
  5. Click on "Yes" for approving the access
  6. Now, check your device status with the following command
    • adb devices
  7. With the above command, you should be able to see devive IMEI and device name
Enjoy the Ubuntu and Android combination :)
