  • Device Offline Message

In command prompt, here is what to do:

1. Setup ADB Folder on your PC. And make sure you're using the lastest ADB Tools. See the helpful link section on how to setup ADB Tools on your PC.

2. Install SpreadTRUM USB Drivers on your PC.

3. Make sure the USB Cable you are using is compatible with the device and that, it can syncronise.

4. Enable USB Debugging on the phone from Developer Options.
    NOTE: if Developer Options is not in the phone go to Settings >> About and tap Build Number continuosly for upto 7-times or until it says; "You're now a developer".

3. Open adb_usb.ini using Notepad++

4. Add the code below in it.
NOTE: the code above is the Vendor ID for SpreadTRUM Android devices. It should be written on another line as if you're starting a new paragraph.

5. Save the file and lunch Command Prompt again in your ADB Tools folder. See here: How to Point Command Prompt to ADB Tools Folder
6. In command prompt, type the Command;
adb devices
You may get a response as shown in the image below:

adb device offline

The response shows offline because you have not granted ADB Permission on the device. Look at your phone screen and accept the notification prompt.

7. Run the command below again in command prompt;
adb devices
You may now get the response shown in the image below.

adb device list

NOTE: if you get the offline message again, then, type the command below in Command Prompt before you issue adb devices again.
