Error: adb unable to connect xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:5555

I had this problem when I tried to adb connect to the virtual phone in KVM. You might also have this problem using the emulator.


Solution:

Step 1. Don't panic, if you have tried methods like "setprop service.adb.tcp.port 5555, stop adbd, start adbd", which didn't work.

Step 2: In the phone terminal, type

# adb remount

Step 3: Try connecting again.

$ adb kill-server
$ adb connect xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
  ...
  xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (hopefully) connected.

Step 4: Problem solved.
