adb reconnect

adb devices” command on host first starts the adb server and then tries to connect to Android device.

As we mentioned in “adb kill-server” in case of some error during connection with device, we have to kill the server daemon then start ourself or let adb devices command start the daemon.

All of this above two things can be done using single “adb reconnect” command which,

  • Disconnects previous connection from device
  • Reattempts the new connection by restarting daemon
  • Also lists the device serial number
$ adb reconnect
reconnecting B2NGAA8831702707 [device]
