ADB not enabling for Station 2018

We are experiencing a connection issue with two separate Sandbox/Dev Kit Clover Station 2018 devices and wanted to see if you had any pointers, or if this is a common issue that others have been experiencing

For whatever reason, we cannot enable ADB. We have tried a variety of different “USB-A to Micro-USB” cables in hopes that it was a cable issue. We have ensured that developer mode is enabled. We have also tried a factory reset, and have read over Clover Dev Kits and Dev Kit FAQs in hopes that we might find some information that would indicate if this issue is fixable. Regardless of all attempts, it always indicates that no devices are detected.

Any suggestions? Thank you!

Have you enabled the device for Android debugging?

Otherwise, have you attempted the following commands in ADB:

  1. adb kill-server
  2. adb start-server
  3. adb devices

please, and what if the device get connected properly into ADB (it appear in "adb devices" list) but with "no permissions". And no matter what you try the device simple doesn't show you the modal asking you to approve the computer connect (based on RSA computer fingerprint, like every mobile does)?

Does your device have developer mode enabled?

1. we have seen the socket break on a dev 2018 device, rendering it useless for ADB
2. setting the device to developer mode is not necessary, in fact the device became very unstable when we did and we had to factory reset.
3. ADB is possible over wifi only if you are to FIRST connect via USB to set it on.. (so alas that is not an option)

And then there is the simple stuff


USB cable has to be both power and data.

You need to approve the USB connection. on the clover.

Thanks for all the insights! After attempting a variety of different troubleshooting steps, it appears that the original device in question has a broken socket. But glad we exhausted all options to get to the bottom of this, thank you for the help!
