Setup on Android version from 4.4.2 to 7.x

Step 1:  Generate data for Kobiton desktop app

  • Plug device to Kobiton desktop
  • Go to this folder: ~/Library/Application Support/Kobiton/devices
  • Go to the folder with the device’s UDID as a name
  • Create a new TextEdit Document file with following structure and filename is “data” and replace “0000” with the passcode you want to set for the device (4-10 numbers):

    type”: “pin,
    “key”: 0000

Step 2:  Set the passcode on your Android device(s)

  • On the Android device, access the screenlock and type as PIN with the key above.

Step 3: Unplug & plug to register the device again and start your testing

Setup on Android version from 8.x to 10

Just do Step 1 and Step 3 as above and enjoy your testing.
