Known Problem

  • Ver.2.00
  • Can not use keyboard shotrcut such as CTRL + ... on Linux.
  • Ver.1.00
  • Because this adb client will be heavy for adb server, it might be down even if you use a few minutes under some environment. Unfortunately it was down, you must restart your computer to restart adb server, At that time adb server will not response "adb kill-server" or "adb start-server" while a few minutes.-> This problem was resolved on Ver.1.02.
