ADB issues in ubports-installer on MacOS, suggested fixes.



  • Ive had a few attempts trying ubports for Nexus 4 but encountered a few problems.

    First one is with the app connecting to phone after initial boot to fastboot. The workaround (kindly suggested to me) was to open ubports-installer via terminal with sudo.
    In terminal, executing 'sudo /Applications/ubports-installer.app/Contents/MacOS/ubports-installer' solves this issue.

    Secondly There appears to be an issue with adb pushing files after the download process. It looks like the adb has a problem with the location of the downloaded files.

    On the mac, the location is at:
    Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/ubports/pool

    Its possible that during the adb push, adb cant find the location of the file because of the space in 'Application Support' folder (Application<space>Support).

    If this is is the case, as a suggestion, could the app work within..
    /Users/<username>/Documents
    Or
    /Users/<username>/Downloads

    Below is the terminal output during attempt to push files. Any help would be appreciated, and if further details are required, please contact me, cheers :)
