A double slash or "/~" expand only the file name part of the remote file

(substitute-in-file-name "/adb::/sdcard/DCIM/mei/temp//") => "/adb::/"
(substitute-in-file-name "/adb::/sdcard/DCIM/mei/temp/~") => "/adb::~"

For remote file names to expand to the local file name, you need an
additional slash:

(substitute-in-file-name "/adb::/sdcard/DCIM/mei/temp///") => "/"
(substitute-in-file-name "/adb::/sdcard/DCIM/mei/temp//~") => "~"

See also the Tramp manual (info "(tramp) File name completion")

Best regards, Michael.
