How to enable phone apk deployment
I wanted to deploy my app to my HTC Desire to see what it looks like on a phone but it wasn’t quite as straight forward as I had hoped.
When reading the Android documentation it says that you have to turn on USB debugging by “go to the home screen, press MENU, select Applications > Development, then enable USB debugging“.
Now I don’t know if it’s the Sense UI, me running it localized in swedish or that I’m running Froyo – but the above description proved hard to follow.
The way to do it for me was to open the apps tab, select Settings (Inställningar) then go to Programs (Program) > Development (Utveckling) then select USB debugging (USB-felsökning).
Then changing the current Run configuration and setting the Deploy Target Selection Mode to Manual did the trick. And as I feared my buttons wouldn’t work at all, I have to say my black tinted buttons not only worked, but came out even better than I had expected.
