Question

I get the following error in Eclipse:

Why?

In addition to adding "127.0.0.1 localhost" to your hosts file, make the following changes in Eclipse.

Under Window -> Preferences -> Android -> DDMS:

  • Set Base local debugger port to "8601"
  • Check the box that says "Use ADBHOST" and the value should be "127.0.0.1"

Thanks to Ben Clayton in the comments for leading me to a solution.

Some Google keywords: Ailment or solution for Nexus S Android debugging with the error message: Can't bind to local 8600 for debugger.
