ok Some slates need a usb cable connection for ADB commands to work (like the GT78) others will connect with a IP address or a cable.Read some of the threads here for help. If you still have problems, post what kind of slate and and what OS the SDK is running on. (win7 64bit, xp 32bit, etc)hello there I have followed all the instructions for Fixing Market on Slate. But I cannot coct to my ip address. I have tried about 10 times with no result. How do I get it to connect? Evey thing worked until I got to " Entering the androidID into slate". It will not connect to my IP address.
