Using MotoBlur as a Dev Phone

At my office, I’m using a new Motorola MotoBlur as a dev phone for Android development. Wanted to share a little wrinkle in setting it up.

As is common with Android, going to Settings -> Development presents you with an option to use your phone as a dev phone by linking it up to your laptop via USB. However, on MotoBlur, this isn’t enough. When you use adb to find connected devices, your MotoBlur won’t appear.

To get things working, drag down from the status bar on the phone and select “USB Connection”. You will see your syncing options. Select “None”. Now you can hook up your phone via USB and adb will find it.

That is all.
