apt update && apt upgrade sources.list issues

Goal is to build payload that restarts the adb service if phone restarts without having to connect phone back into laptop.

Currently I am able to setup the phone, not rooted:

  • adb device connection
  • sustain server connection once device is unplugged from usb without using wifi (requires additional applications)
  • able to establish connection back to laptop over cellular network, not wifi (requires additional applications)

Once phone dies or restarts, the original server session is killed, I have use laptop and/or pi to restart the server.

I have just opened my bash bunny to build this out as one of my first use cases. From my research I seen I needed to install adb toolkit, so I first ran "apt -y update && apt -y upgrade" and I start getting 404 errors. From that I did research on the 404 errors and was directed to looking into "/etc/apt/sources.list". Keep in mind I am able to ping out "ping" from bad bunny.

The following was the first issue I had:

I ran:
apt-key adv --refresh-keys --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net
apt-key adv --refresh-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com

I made the following changes to the /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://archive.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main
deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian jessie-backports contrib
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian jessie-backports non-free

Now I am getting:

E: The value 'jessie' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

I have reverted back to the original sources.list:

deb http://archive.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main
deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main

I am still getting the following error:

E: The value 'jessie' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

Please help and thank you in advance,

The situation when it comes to apt update or to apt install things on the Bunny will get worse for each day that passes. Jessie is EOL since long, and even if there has been (or perhaps still are) workarounds available, those workarounds will stop working as time goes by. There is a non official ELTS available for Jessie, but that doesn't cover the full scope of what Jessie once was. You could try the Freexian ELTS, but it's at your own risk. It might work to some extent, or it might not...

If successful, one thing that you shouldn't do is run apt upgrade (either using official channels or something else). It will risk messing the Bunny up. Just run apt update and then apt install what you need.

However, it's possible to "force" adb to be installed on the Bunny. Did the operations below and got adb to execute. Not sure if there are more things needed to be installed for specific adb functionality, but that will probably show in one way or the other when using it.

Thank You!!!

ADB(1)                            adb Manuals                           ADB(1)

       adb - Android Debug Bridge

       adb [-d|-e|-s serialNumber] command

       Android  Debug  Bridge (adb) is a versatile command line tool that lets
       you communicate with an emulator instance or connected  Android-powered
       device.  It is a client-server program that includes three components:

       o A  client, which sends commands.  The client runs on your development
         machine.  You can invoke a client from a shell by issuing an adb com-
         mand.  Other Android tools such as DDMS also create adb clients.

       o A  daemon,  which  runs  commands  on a device.  The daemon runs as a
         background process on each emulator or device instance.

       o A server, which manages communication between the client and the dae-
         mon.  The server runs as a background process on your development ma-

       If there's only one emulator running or only one device connected,  the
       adb  command  is sent to that device by default.  If multiple emulators
       are running and/or multiple devices are attached, you need to  use  the
       -d,  -e, or -s option to specify the target device to which the command
       should be directed.

       -a     Directs adb to listen on all interfaces for a connection.

       -d     Directs command to the only connected USB  device.   Returns  an
              error if more than one USB device is present.

       -e     Directs  command to the only running emulator.  Returns an error
              if more than one emulator is running.

       -s specific device
              Directs command to the device or emulator with the given  serial
              number or qualifier.  Overrides ANDROID_SERIAL environment vari-

       -p product name or path
              Simple product name like sooner, or a relative/absolute path  to
              a  product  out directory like out/target/product/sooner.  If -p
              is not specified, the ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT  environment  variable
              is used, which must be an absolute path.

       -H     Name of adb server host (default: localhost)

       -P     Port of adb server (default: 5037)

       adb devices [-l]
              List  all  connected  devices.   -l will also list device quali-

       adb connect host[:port]
              Connect to a device via TCP/IP.  Port 5555 is used by default if
              no port number is specified.
