Does Fastboot Devices tools work on Pinebook Pro?
#1
Hello forum,
I am thinking to buy a Pinebook Pro to use as a second notebook, and for some Fastboos Devices (with Android devices connected via USB).
Is that already working on Pinebook Pro? There is some script to translate ARM architecture?

Many thanks

I can;t speak towards the OOTB Debian, but the AUR has adb-tool available for aarch64. I installed them on my PBP to talk to my Android install on my PB1080. You should need any translation, PBPs are ARM.

Good,
I basically need a pine book pro capable of flash an android device connected via USB.

You talk about the default Linux installed on PBP?
You think that Manjaro will have something working?

Thanks

I think Manajo/Arch have 2 adb options the PBP can use, including the one above.

Very cool, there are already the tools!

I think I will order a Pinebook Pro soon, I am from EU engraved by some custom, but it's still OK.

Sorry for bumping old thread but I figured I'd ask here before making new one. So with the Debian that comes with pb pro you can install adb and fastboot with apt install andriod-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot. But when I check the version it's of ap123 and I think the latest API is 30. In the past if I ever had issues flashing my device the first thing to check for is to make sure you have the latest ad/fastboot binaries. I even found this web page from Debian that says it correctly targets api 23. https://wiki.debian.org/AndroidTools. Anyone with an Android device running Android 9 or above able to flash images successfully in Debian?
