Oneplus One refusing APK install



  • Hi,
    I've just installed anbox successfully in a new install of OTA9 on a Oneplus One. I've followed the official instructions for installing APKs but it doesn't work:

    adb shell
    sudo mount -o rw,remount /
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install android-tools-adb
    adb install /home/phablet/Downloads/my-app.apk

    results in this message:

    *error: device offline

    • waiting for device -*

    $ adb devices results in:

    List of devices attached
    emulator-5558 offline

    Restarting adb does not bring the device online.

    Running:

    $lxc-console -ndefault -P /home/phablet/anbox-data/containers -t0

    returns:

    lxc-console: commands.c: lxc_cmd_console: 717 tty number 0 invalid, busy or all ttys busy

    Can anyone give me some advice on how to get this working?

    Thanks



  • Does anbox work in general, e.g. can you start the Android settings app?
    Last time I fiddled around with anbox I had the impression that you need to start an Android app to actually have anbox fully running (or maybe that was just coincidence).



  • Wow, yep, that sorted it! Thanks for the help!



  • hi folks,
    i think i am having same issue with 1+1 but opening the android setting app doesn t change a thing 😢
    i ve tried several other app like contact (can t add account) , music (black screen ) files (doesn t see any files), calculator , all no luck :'(((
    nocomp@8uR34ud3sL1c0rn35:~/tools/android/apk$ adb shell
    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ adb install /home/phablet/Downloads/pogo.apk

    • daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    • daemon started successfully *
      error: device offline
    • waiting for device -

    is there a way to install the apk from the device via shell commands?

    thxx for your time

    thxx @Ingo but no luck 😢

    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ sudo mv /home/phablet/Downloads/pogo.apk ~/anbox-data/data
    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ sudo lxc-console -ndefault -P /home/phablet/anbox-data/container -t0
    default is not running
    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ cd data && pm install "pogo.apk"
    bash: cd: data: No such file or directory
    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ cd ~/anbox-data/data
    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~/anbox-data/data$ pm install "pogo.apk"
    bash: pm: command not found
    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~/anbox-data/data$

    how come knowing anbox installed some apps, it didn t installed the installation app kit, would be easier.
    i ve did some search on google anbox on linux is an app, i don t find it on mmy phone, so i can t launch it, is it normal or is there something broken?

    thxx for your help
