I'm using Emacs 26.3 with TRAMP and adb 7.1.2_r36 [1], all
installed via Guix on a foreign distro (Debian 10).

I still do not undestand if what follows is a TRAMP bug or something
related to my environment.

I've sent a message to [2] but I'm asking here in
case anyone in this list is/was able to browse an Android filesystem via

I'm trying to use adb via tramp (I'd love to be able to browse my phone
filesystem in Emacs) for the first time and I get a strange dired

If I try to "dired-visit" any of the listed dirs I get this in the
*Messages* buffer:

I'm able to use "adb shell" in a shell buffer under Emacs, this is the

and I can "navigate" all my folders via adb shell (in root mode).

Do you have any idea why I get all that escape sequences?

Thanks! Gio'
