Adb and Android Studio not detecting YUPHORIA

I have just bought a Yuphoria. But adb can't detect it. I have tried drivers from different vendors but they are of no use.Now my Android Studio can't detect my Yuphoria. I have searched on internet and a lot of people have this issue. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the adb drivers but again no use. Does this mean there is a problem with my device? What should I do? Earlier I used REDMI 1s and there was no problem with Android Studio.

In my case in device manager it shows Android Composite ADB Interface.
I saw a video on youtube and On that guy's computer it was showing something starting with YU. Please tell me what to do? And is my device ok ?

Answer

After a lot of search finally I found this solution on Yu's forum answered by DoomLord and it worked.. Basically I had to add yuphoria's device id to the adb_usb.ini file..

Open windows command prompt (Windows Key + R) ├łnter: %HOMEPATH%.android and then press OK This will open the hidden .android folder within Home Folder of the current user. There you will see a file called: adb_usb.ini Edit the file using Notepad or Editplus/Notepad+ Just add the text: 0x2a96 without pressing any additional enter key/new line characters, save the file

now go to command prompt and restart adb: adb kill-server adb devices

Now the device will start showing up!
