    novacom -d usb -t open tty://

    -d usb tell it to connect to the USB device first. Yours was apparently trying to connect to the emulator first instead.

    Always, always, use -d usb. Even if it works when you don't, just use it.

    never mind, if the emulator or the virtual box is running then it will lead you to the root@gemux86 response. As long as those applications are closed then it'll bring you to root@castle:/#

    does the phone need to be in dev mode or not for this to work?
