  • Android not being detected

    Hey there,

    Trying to acquire some SMS messages from an Android device. It shows up when I run "adb devices -l" from the OSForensics adb folder, but the GUI in OSForensics isn't picking it up. I'm going to try sideloading the app in the meantime, but I'm hoping to not have to rely on that long-term.

    Device I'm testing with is a Pixel 4XL running Android 13 (build TP1A.221005.002) with USB debugging turned on.

    Any ideas?

    Can we get a screenshot of the output when you ran the "adb devices -l" command? Maybe the format of the output isn't what we are expecting.

        Did you have 'always allow from this computer' checked? Else you might need to allow separately for OSF.

        If you still have issues, can you replace osf64.exe where you have installed OSF with the below linked:
        Which has some extra debugging, run OSF in debug mode and send us the generated log to have a look.
