How to test an Android Nox Emulator with Silk Test
If you wish to test an application using an Android NOX Emulator with Silk Test, you will notice that by default, the device is not detected by Silk Test.
For any Android device to be recognized by Silk Test, the device needs to be detected by the local Android Debug Bridge (ADB) interface.
To test a Nox Emulator, you will need to connect this to the local ADB interface using the connect command.
Before connecting the device to the ADB and Silk Test, you will need to enable USB debugging on the device by following the below steps:
1. Start and run your NOX Emulator
2. Enable Developer Options and turn on USB-Debugging
Open the Settings on the device, scroll down and select 'About tablet'.
Scroll down to 'build number' and click it (7) times. Developer mode will now be enabled.
Click back and then select 'Developer options' and check the 'USB debugging' option.
3. Open command prompt and cd to the adb.exe shipped with Silk Test.
4. Run adb connect to your device.
Enter the below command. The NOX emulator runs on port 62001 by default.
"adb connect 127.0.0.1:62001"
5. Verify device is connected
To see a list of connected devices, enter the following command:
If connected successfully, your return should look like the below:
Now when you go to record or playback in Silk Test, the NOX emulator should be listed under mobile devices. You can now connect to the device and record/playback successfully.
When recording, you should see something which looks like the below screenshot.
