Connect Android to Computer

Step2. Now you need to enable USB debugging on your Android device. If you have enabled USB debugging on your device before, you can skip this step. Follow the detailed expression in the window to set it now.

Enable Android USB debugging

1) For Android 2.3 or earlier: Enter 'Settings' -> Click 'Applications' -> Click 'Development' -> Check 'USB debugging'

2) For Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter 'Settings' -> Click 'Developer options' -> Check 'USB debugging'

3) For Android 4.2 or newer: Enter 'Settings' -> Click 'About Phone' -> Tap 'Build number' for several times until getting a note 'You are under developer mode' -> Back to 'Settings' -> Click 'Developer options' -> Check 'USB debugging'

Step3. After you get the USB debugging down, the program begins to connect your device. Click 'Start' to analyze the data on your device. After your device is detected, you need to allow the program super user authorization on the screen of your device. Just click 'Allow' when the message pops out on your device’s screen.

Tips: If the program doesn't scan anything for a long time after you clicked 'Allow' on your phone, please check your phone again. Some devices present the 'Allow' button for several times. It doesn't matter. Just click it until it doesn't appear again or the program has begun its real scan.

Step4. Now your device has been successfully detected. Click 'Start' to scan it. Do not disconnect your device during the scan, or the scan will fail.
