I have the same issue with my Droid Razr Maxx. Used to work with the older ISO's. I'm assuming it's an issue with an update on Debian's end?? This is about to drive me to another distro as I need to sync my podcasts to my phone at least once a week. The only solution I have is to shut my phone off, take out the sd card, put it into a USB to sd card adapter and then plug that into my PC. What a pain!!
The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)

I have also have the DRM and have the same connection issue. Pulling the SD card to transfer data - for me that's a non-starter as the access panel/door on the phone is not the strongest thing known to man.

Have you investigated AirDroid as a short-term work-around. It's available free (as in free beer) from the Google Play Store and actually works quite well. It's not as fast as USB or direct transfer (assuming zero time required to pull the SD card, insert into adapter, insert adapter/SD into computer), but it's not a slug either. And the interface is through the browser of your choice; I used IE (yes, I used to run Win7), FF, Chrome, and I think chromium.

I've also found samba and FTP apps on Google Play --> guess what I'm going to be doing this weekend. :D If I can get either of those working, they'll do the data transfer much faster than the AirDroid solution.

Samba is a working alternative, though not quite as fast as USB (not by a long shot).

But, there's app on Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... resh.samba) that works quite nicely. There might be others as well - didn't check as I got this one working. File transfer across WiFi was at about 1.3 - 1.5MB/sec so for large files, this might not be the best choice. For smaller ones - it appears to be a good option.

I'm relatively new to the whole Linux game and to Debian in particular. My understanding is that using Ubuntu targeted PPAs was a good way to bork a Debian install.

What might be worth while is getting the source and compiling it to a deb file and doing the

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i <package>.deb
thing. Something I might look into this weekend - just for fun.

@ScottQuier: You are right.
@netron: You should delete those repos after install the packages needed.

OK, now I'm really confused :? . If I'm right then why are you still advising netron to install Ubuntu packages on SolydXK ... which is Debian based?

Yep, but this packages (android*) only contain udev rules files, lets say that they are "distribution agnostic" ;)

Well, I found strange that you zerozero was able to add the ppa, because I couldn't. I just modify by hand the sources.list file.
Also used "raring" instead of "solydk".

To add some knowledge, the command

Code: Select all

add-apt-repository
use the file "/etc/lsb-release" to set the correct distribution (flavors of ubuntu), and if you check your "lsb-release" file you can see "DISTRIB_CODENAME=solydxk". That is the reason why you get the wrong url like "http://ppa.launchpad.net/nilarimogard/w ... ydxk/main/....."
