    Used system:
    Ubuntu 8.10 & 9.04
    kernel 2.6.28
    T-mobile G1 (HTC)

    * as well as @ 8.10 as 9.04 I can see the drive, but drive will not mount or recognised
    * further I can't find a device with "adb devices" therefor cannot connect to the phone

    I made a udev rule :
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666"

    I'll add a screenshot of devicelist & lsusb

    Please if anyone can help me further then it would be great..

    If you've got the udev rule added, turned on USB Debugging on your G1, and everything else seems to work, there's always one thing that I've had work. Hopefully it will for you, too.

    Code (Text):
    1. adb kill-server
    2. adb start-server
    Now try adb devices.

    Unfortunally not working.
    USB debug is on!

    This is what I have in my android.rules

    50-android.rules:
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666"

    Am I missing something??

    Also, if you're plugging it into a front USB port, try a back/different port - this helps more often than not, as the front/extended USB ports in some computers don't work so well.

    solution was not a front or back port, but a usb y-cable..
    obviously it needed more power..

    That was my problem. Plagued me for weeks and drove me crazy. They should tell you that in the FAQ that comes with the phone.

    I just wanted to add that I was having the same problem, lsusb showed the device, but "adb devices" was blank. I fixed it by running adb kill-server, then running "adb devices" again, this time making sure I was running it as root. now it shows up!
