Can't connect Galaxy II to Mint 15 (laptop)

Hi. I have a Galaxy SII skyrocket (sgh-i727) with CM10.1.2 (android 4.2.2) trying to connect to Mint 15 x64. The phone won't mount as storage, and I can't make an adb connection to it (I'm trying to use it to debug apps via eclipse). I have an old HTC Aria/Liberty with CM7 that does work correctly.

When I plug the GII in, it starts to charge, says "connected as an installer" for a split second, then nothing. I don't see the debug icon in the notifications bar.

I try lsusb, the phone isn't listed there. If I do udevadm monitor, I get this when I plug it in, and there is no output when I unplug:

nexus@Lithium ~ $ sudo udevadm monitor
[sudo] password for nexus: 
monitor will print the received events for:
UDEV - the event which udev sends out after rule processing
KERNEL - the kernel uevent

UDEV  [117828.775560] remove   /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.2 (usb) it seems to be connecting and then immediately disconnecting. This phone works on this same laptop (a dell latitude) under windows, both as a storage device and with eclipse.

Here are my udev rules:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev" --my HTC phone that works
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR[idVendor}=="04e8", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev" --my Samsung that doesn't

I don't really know where to go with this, but I'm hoping someone more familiar with udev can point me in the direction of a man page, forum thread, or bug solution


Edit 1:
Reading around the android dev site, it says I need adb version 1.0.31 to debug android 4.2.2 and above, which is what I have (correct versions of both). It says on connection, I should get a dialog on the phone to accept an RSA key and allow debugging, but I don't get this dialog. I assume this doesn't happen until the phone connects and adb tries to connect, but I thought the lack of dialog might be relevant?

You have CM10, so it's rooted. run ssh over wifi - that's the lazy connection.


android, mint, udev
