Dell Venue 7 support

Dell Venue 7 support

aeassa的头像

Hi, 

Have a Dell Venue 7 (Intel Z2560 based) and want to use it as a hardware device to test my applications. Unfortunately, the current Intel USB driver (from 4/2013, well before Venue 7 launched) doesn't recognize the Venue 7 at all. 

Is there any way to work around this, or do I need to use an ARM device to test my applications? 

Regards,

AE

Hi,

unfortunately I don't have this device to try it out. 
There are a couple of things you can check or try out:

  • USB debugging enabled?
  • Do you see the device in the device manager with a question mark?

I will check in the meantime if we have an update available to publish. 

Thanks,
Alex

Perhaps I have similar issue but with Dell Venue 8.

Installed latest BM from intel.com today on a Windows 7 64-bit machine. Using JDK 1.7 update 45.

Dell Venue 8 shows up in Device Manager as a Portable Devices --> Dell Venue 3830.

Based on BM readme, I detached the Dell, uninstalled the media device driver, installed the USB driver from BM and reattached the Dell. Still, its showing up as a media device.

I can start the dev env and see the x86 based AVD but I'd like to attach to the real device.

On the Dell, the USB attach mode is shown as storage.

Ideas for debugging this further?

Yes, USB debugging is on. No, I cannot install the drivers manually as on my system when I try to do so via the Device Manager, it says no drivers were found (even when I do point it to the right directory). This method works on my old Google Nexus 7, but does not on my Venue 7.

Thanks,

AE

@jay07920 Can you send me an email to my Intel email address? 

@aeassa I'm still checking if we have newer USB drivers that we can release. Have you contacted the Dell support already?

Have contacted Dell, but no luck. They don't have a driver but they pointed me to the Intel drivers.

I'm still trying to get some additional feedback internally. It's interesting that Dell pointed you back to the drivers we offer for download.

Hello,

I have a Dell Venue 8 3830 to use for development, and I too cannot get the device to connect in the correct way (same results as above users).

Any updates?

Regards,

Mark

For anyone still trying to get a Dell Venue 7 or 8 to work, for this purpose, check out this post on Stack Overflow (worked for me with a Venue 7): https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20751643/debugging-android-apps-on-dell-venue-7-using-eclipse

Also, if you're having trouble downloading the 1.1.5 driver from Intel (access denied, or agreement not found errors): http://www.touslesdrivers.com/index.php?v_page=23&v_code=37569&v_langue=en
