I want to know that I can connect micromax a100 with the eclipse for android development or not. From other community I found that for development purpose micromax device can not be used. Also I doesn't found any usb driver for that. So please help to come out that.

even i am facing same issue.... any luck from your side? – user19781 Sep 12 '12 at 11:04

I don't know this device but Eclipse doesn't care about this, your bridge between your Android phone and your PC is adb, a tool distributed with the Android SDK, and you should be able to develop and test an application with every Android device out there.

The only real problem are the drivers; the suggested platform for Android development is a Gnu/Linux distribution but many people still use Windows or Mac, with Windows you must have the right drivers for your device because otherwise you can't use it and you can't connect it to your PC. On a GNU/linux distribution you don't have this problems and the setup is much more easier.

Thank you for your reply. I does not found any information about connecting device of micromax in android USB vender ids So I might have question that it is possible to use this device with android development. – Siddharth Aug 26 '12 at 11:10
@Siddharth you don't have specified your OS yet ... – user827992 Aug 26 '12 at 11:12
Currently I was using windows XP. Also the platform does not matter for me. I also ready to shift in lynux. Basically I want to know that micromax device used for the android development debugging or not. – Siddharth Aug 26 '12 at 11:21
under linux you can use lsusb to get the numerical ID for your device, that list is just about the most popular brand, run lsusb an you should get something like Bus 002 Device 007: ID 04e8:689e Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd GT-S5670 [Galaxy Fit] and you want the string that here says 04e8, do the same for you device and follow the instrunctions on that page, don't forget to enable the USB debug and all the development options on your device. – user827992 Aug 26 '12 at 11:36
I will try for that and I found any thing useful then I return back here. Thank you for spare time for me. – Siddharth Aug 26 '12 at 11:53

After research about the multiple company devices, I found that windows operating system require device driver. If your device has no driver then you can not use your device for development purpose in windows. While linux has some flexibility in that one. You can connect and use any company device for development purpose that I have tested and used. You have to modify only 51-android.rules file for you device. I answer my own question because this information become useful to many other community members that I think.
