When working on Android development projects, it's common to connect physical or virtual devices to your computer for testing and debugging purposes. The Android Debug Bridge (ADB) is a versatile command-line tool that allows you to interact with these connected devices. In this article, we'll focus on disconnecting a device using ADB.
Before proceeding, ensure that you have the following prerequisites in place:
To disconnect a device, we first need to identify the unique identifier associated with it. Follow these steps:
This command will display a list of connected devices along with their unique identifiers, known as device IDs.
1List of devices attached2emulator-5554 device398819239 device
In the example above, two devices are listed: "emulator-5554" and "98819239". Note down the device ID of the device you want to disconnect.
Once you have identified the device ID, you can use the adb disconnect command to disconnect it. Replace
<device-id> with the actual device ID you obtained in the previous step.
1adb disconnect <device-id>
1adb disconnect emulator-5554
This command will disconnect the specified device from your development environment.
To verify that the device has been successfully disconnected, you can run the adb devices command again. If the device is no longer connected, it won't be listed in the output. By following the steps outlined, you can easily disconnect a connected Android device from your development environment.
