Android debug bridge ADB and Ubuntu permission problem

When adb fails in Ubuntu and start to ask some permissions…

vi /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules and add:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE:="0666"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="18d1", MODE:="0666"

hamilton@austin:~$ sudo restart udev
hamilton@austin:~$ adb kill-server
hamilton@austin:~$ adb devices*

Remember to unplug USB cable
