Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Jelly Bean Sync Can't Setup

Post by genoki » Sat Jan 19, 2013 7:21 am

I have been using BirdieSync for years with Win Mobile 6.5, then Android 2.x

I just got new phone Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Jelly Bean and just can't get it to setup. Things are slightly different in Jelly Bean. So maybe I am missing something.

I still have my old phone setup to sync and that works fine as it always has.

One thing that I notice is that when Jelly Bean USB connects, you can pull down USB notification and it has two options, one to be media connection or camera connection .

I recall that if I had my Android 2x device set up as media sync eg able to access device file system from my desktop, that Birdie Sync wouldn't work.

Can anyone give me any information about, if this is a problem, and how to get around it? There doesn't appear to be an option to turn off the Jelly Bean USB connection so Birdie Sync can do its job.

Or perhaps maybe I have a completelly diff issue that someone has encountered?

Maybe there is an issue with having two devices setup?

Hmmm .. thx

Hello Genoki,

Did you install Samsung Galaxy Note 2 USB drivers for Android ? (default Windows drivers are not enough)
Did you enable USB debugging on your Android device ? (menu "Settings/Developer options" (switch it ON) and then check "USB debugging" for Jelly Bean)
You may find additional information in this FAQ entry.
Thanks.
Birdy

Thanks Birdy .. looking forward to more Birdie Sync!

Had the USB debugging setup .. but needed the Samsung USB driver ..
Some people are downloading and installing Samsung Kies software to get the drivers but Samsung has the USB drivers which I downloaded from here

Thank you for the link. Glad you could connect via USB ! :)
The FAQ was updated to insist on installing the Manufacturer Android USB driver and to not rely on the driver installed by Windows.
