I have started doing some development with VS2019 (Community) and Xamaran. Till now I've used the Desktop emulator to test, but now I want to try this on an actual device, in this case an LG550 (Stylo 2 plus). It is an older device but still viable for testing.
Bottom line, VS2019 and Android Device Manager cannot see my LG550. I have done the following:
Set up Developer options
Turned of allow debugging
Set the transfer mode from charging to media transfer and also tried PTP
I've closed and restarted VS2019 (multiple times)
I've turn off and on multiple times the LG550
I downloaded and installed the LG drivers as provided by LG website.
I installed the Android SDK specific for the phone
Finally I added a fresh SSD micro drive which I can copy files too.
After all of that I can actually see the physical device in the Android Device Monitor (see pic), but it will will not show when I launch Android Device Manager. Is that suppose to auto detect? Is there a way to manually add it?
My alternative is to try and side load the program but not sure how to install it once I get it on the device.
Windows 10 sees the device.
