Setting up Samsung S3 to work with Icenium

In this post we will take a look on how could we configure Samsung S3 to work with Icenium . Icenium Graphite allows you to live sync application directly with connected device. You can directly deploy application on device and debug them. Follow below steps to configure Samsung S3 to work as development device with Icenium

Step 1

Download Samsung USB drivers for Mobile phones. You can download them from here


After downloading unzip file and you will get an exe. Double click to run that.


Step 2

Next you need to enable debug mode on device. To enable that go to Settings and then Developer Options and then Enable USB Debugging.

How to get Device information in Icenium

In this post we will take a look on fetching device information in Icenium. Internally Icenium usage PhoneGap to build the application. We will use PhoneGap API to fetch device information. It is always good idea to read device information when device is being ready. Device information can be fetched with reading values of following properties.


So in Icenium device information on device ready can be read as given in below code snippet,

document.addEventListener("deviceready", onDeviceReady, false);

// PhoneGap is ready
function onDeviceReady() {

var deviceName =;
var deviceId = device.uuid;
var deviceOs = device.platform;
var deviceOsVersion = device.version;

//Use device information as required

console.log("devicename : " + deviceName + " deviceId: " + deviceId + " deviceOs: " + deviceOs + " deviceosversion : " + deviceOsVersion);


On running application in Graphite simulator you will find device information.


In this way device information can be fetched in Icenium. I hope you find this post useful. Thanks for reading.
