Generally, the problem is that tablets and smartphones are not supported by
ADE. They use a different OS than computers do, and ADE was written way
before they were around.
HERE <http://blogs.adobe.com/digitalpublishing/supported-devices> is a list
of supported devices. If you find your device on the list, check back with
us and we'll go from there.
you understood wrong, it´s not the matter with devices
i dont need ADE because of reading with pubbles, but i need the adobe id to register the phone/tab/computer so that the ebooks/magazines can be descrambled (don´t know how to explain this else)
THIS ID seems to be to often used, because of installing lot´s of different ROM´s an reinstalling Pubbles inclusive using the Adobe ID.
And with another ID i can´t open the Books, even if it´s the same device.
You can get an activation error if you are trying to run the software on too many computers. Try deactivating the software on a computer that you no longer need to run the software on. See: How can I deactivate Adobe software?
This is just plain bad advice - it won't work, and will cause you harm. You should inform whoever gave you this advice of this (point them here - in case they were wondering, although I no longer work for Adobe, formerly I was the lead engineer for Digital Editions):
1.) First and foremost - deactivating a computer does not increase your activation allowance. So deactivating one computer will not let you activate another computer
2.) Activations are tracked seperately. So even if it worked the way they thought, Deactivating a computer would not get you back an allowance for activating a tablet/phone, or a device.
If you are getting a E_ADEPT_TOO_MANY_ACTIVATIONS error, the best way to fix this is to ask Adobe for an 'Activation Reset' in chat support. If you don't get a positive response (which can and does happen), keep asking until you do. You will want to be using the same AdobeID that you are activating with (or even better have the full and completer error message handy).
(and yes every time you changed the ROM on your phone, Bluefire, Aldiko, or whatever software you were using to read books with, had to do a fresh activation - burning one each time)
If I understood wrong the first time, I don't understand at all this time.
What is 'pubbles' and why does it require an Adobe ID?
Also, what has that got to do with ADE?
And what does all of this have to do with a tablet or your smartphone?
I can try to help, but I need a full picture first.
Never mind. Jim Lester answered the question.
Pubbles is another ebook provider and has it´s own app, named pubbles.
is like ADE or kindle.
after i download a book i can´t read it until i register my device to adobe with my adobe id, the same way as in ADE.
like Jim told, everytime i reset my phone, tab, whatever, it generates a new Android ID and so Adobe thinks, this is a new device.
After several activations, the number of free activations of the Adobe ID is lost.
now the last question is, where to ask for an reset?
thx a lot
Select Digital Editions
Select Signing in to my account, or registering my product
Click on the "I still need help..." button
Click on the "Chat now" button underneath the "Chat with an agent"
(Leider, werden Sie es brauchen)
You can contact Adobe tech support and they will reset your activation
i´ve got the counter reset, but it was a hard work
they had issues to find out what my issues are
but finaly it´s done and i was able to authorize my tablet.
for all user which had same problems:
if you are rooting your Android Device, make a backup with Titanium Backup and after you install your new ROM / OS / Backup / Restore or whatever, first start Titanium Backup and restore your Android ID(you will be asked for), then you can Authorize your Device again, without Loosing your AutorizeCounts.
