Re: BB10 Alpha Device not for Linux


Is there any driver needed for the connection? The usb display "not connected" in NDK IDE while the debug token and sign keys are all finished without any problem. I can't deploy the application to the device through Linux. Thanks.

I'm using Linux and the latest NDK 10.0.9.

I managed to connect, build and run as BB C/C++ Application without problem on the alpha dev device. No additional driver installed on Linux (Debian x86).

Did you try to "r-click" connect to the USB device? Can try:
1. unplug device
2. launch IDE
3. plug in device
4. check your ifconfig if there's a USB interface (rndis) meaning alpha dev device established a TCP connection with Linux. This is a good sign.
5. Attempt to connect the USB device at IDE. Should prompt for info if not setup etc.

*Am a newbie with BB NDK and eclipse in general. Hope this helps.

Re: BB10 Alpha Device not for Linux

Doing this on Linux Mint, I had to go to my Network settings, open the Options for the USB connection and then:


  1. Set the Method to Manual
  2. Under addresses add:,,
  3. Click on Routes
  4. Add:,,, 1
  5. Click OK and then Save.

Then when I connected my device it worked fine.  This might have something to do with Mint being run in VirtualBox as well.  Running this from the command line seems to do the trick too:


sudo ip addr add dev usb0

sudo ip ro add dev usb0
