Welcome to this guide where we unveil a clever technique for executing ADB Commands on a single device when multiple devices are connected. If you’ve stumbled upon this post, you’re probably wondering why anyone would need to perform this task in the first place. Well, I had the same question until I encountered this situation myself.
Back in the early days of my YouTube channel, I used an app on my phone to record videos that required USB Debugging to be enabled. Since my videos centered around rooting and flashing-related topics, I already had a device connected to my PC. Consequently, whenever I ran the adb devices command, my PC would detect two connected devices.
This situation made me cautious about executing the necessary command because it could potentially impact the unintended device (in this case, my recording device). To address this concern, I delved deeper into research and discovered a method specifically designed to execute ADB Commands on a single phone even when multiple devices are connected. In this guide, we will explain the steps to achieve this. Stay with us to learn more.
How to Execute ADB Commands when Multiple Devices are Connected
To begin, follow these steps to execute ADB commands when multiple devices are connected:
- First, download and extract the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC.
- Enable USB Debugging on one of your devices and connect it to your PC.
- Open the Command Prompt by typing “CMD” in the address bar of the platform tools and pressing Enter.
- In the Command Prompt, execute the following command:Copy code
adb devicesThis command will provide you with a serial ID. Take note of the serial ID and the device name.
- Connect your second device to your PC and execute the same command again.
- Once again, note down the serial ID and the device name.
From now on, you will use the serial ID to execute the desired ADB command. The general syntax for executing commands on a specific device is as follows (replace “serial_ID” and “command” accordingly):
adb -s serial_ID command
To illustrate this further, let’s consider a few commands. In my case, “6ddfaeb8” corresponds to the Poco F4 (munch), while “c07c4a1a” corresponds to the OnePlus 7T.
ADB Shell Commands when Two Devices are Connected
If you want to execute a shell command on the Poco F4 (munch), use the following command:
adb -s 6ddfaeb8 shell
For the OnePlus 7T, the command would be:
adb -s c07c4a1a shell
Fastboot Commands when Two Devices are Connected
To boot the Poco F4 into Fastboot Mode, use the command:
adb -s 6ddfaeb8 reboot bootloader
To verify the same, type the following command and you’ll get the same serial ID as above (in my case, “6ddfaeb8”):
Reboot to Recovery When Two Devices are Connected
If you want to boot the OnePlus 7T into Recovery Mode, use the command:
adb -s c07c4a1a reboot recovery
That’s it! These were the steps to execute ADB Commands on a single device when multiple devices are connected. We have also provided a few example commands to help you understand this slightly complex topic. If you have any queries regarding the aforementioned steps, please let us know in the comments. We will provide you with a solution as soon as possible.
In this guide, we explained how to execute ADB Commands on a single device when multiple devices are connected. We covered the necessary steps and provided examples of ADB shell and Fastboot commands. By following these instructions, you can ensure that the desired ADB Commands are executed on the intended device, even when multiple devices are connected.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
1. Why would I need to execute ADB Commands on a single device when multiple devices are connected?
When multiple devices are connected, executing ADB Commands on a specific device ensures that the desired command is executed only on that device, preventing any unintended effects on other connected devices.
2. Can I use this method with any Android device?
Yes, this method can be used with any Android device as long as it has USB Debugging enabled and is connected to your PC.
3. How can I find the serial ID of my device?
By executing the
adb devices command in the Command Prompt, you will receive a list of connected devices along with their respective serial IDs.
4. Are there any risks involved in executing ADB Commands on the wrong device?
Yes, executing ADB Commands on the wrong device can potentially affect the device and its data. It is essential to double-check the serial ID before executing any commands.
5. Is it possible to execute commands on multiple devices simultaneously?
No, when multiple devices are connected, ADB Commands are executed on one device at a time. The serial ID allows you to specify which device the command should be executed on.
