How to Install Android SDK / ADB on Windows


Monday 18th of March 2013 / android.gs
If you are just about to install a custom ROM, unlock the bootloader of your Android device, or root the same and need the Android SDK installed on your Windows running computer, then you should first complete this tutorial. During the next lines I will try to teach you what ADB means, when you need to use it and also how to easily install the Android Software Developer Kit on any Windows based PC. This guide will work on all the versions of Windows (XP, Vista, 7, or 8), so you have nothing to worry about. Also, a similar procedure will be explained for those who have a Mac OS X / Linux device, so don’t use this method unless you want to install ADB on Windows.The Android Software Developer Kit, simply named as Android SDK, or ADB is what all the advance users of Android should have installed on their Windows running computers. In fact this tool stands behind each developer who is working in developing and testing new apps for improving, updating or unchaining different version of the Android OS. Basically, you are dealing with some codes that will be inserted in the command prompt

How to install Android SDK


Thursday 03rd of June 2010 / androidforums.com
How to install Android SDK on your Windows 7 ComputerI followed this excellent guide to install Android SDK on my computer, but the guide assumes a lot of things and it didn't go into the detail I needed. After 2 days of struggling I was finally able to get it working. Hopefully you can learn from the pitfalls I went through and it won't be nearly as challenging for you to install. My instructions are going to be basic and over simplified - sort of like SDK for Dummies. The reason I'm saying this is for installing on a Windows 7 computer is because the screen shots and the information that follows will be from Windows 7. The guide that I followed and linked above had instructions based on Windows XP.Before you get started, you will need to download two pieces of software; the Java SDK and the Android SDK. Here are the links:The Android software development kit (SDK)The Java SE software development kit (SDK)

I think my first post with the Cyan wiki is pretty good, just that the one with the latest gapps and radio is what you want. 12_7 is not the latest radio.I installed SDK and am about to root. Took forever with my daughter's pos machine running Vista Business. I have a mac. I looked at the list of radios. I am assuming, given my phones specs above, that you think i should flash a radio--that the one I have is not the right one? Which one of the ones on the link you recommended should I use?Also, you say not to wipe before flashing it?I really appreciate your time. I have hacked palms and windows based stuff and iphones, but this cmd line, Android stuff it pretty new to me!

Android SDK Windows based guide


Thursday 01st of September 2011 / androidforums.com
I have noticed a few people who are new There are 2 files for you to download, an .exe and a .zipAndroid SDK | Android Developersthe .exe is a full install but for beginners, the .zip is easier to use, and has all commands in one place. When you install you will have commands like adb and fastboot in different folders which i found out the hard way when i upgraded to r121. When you download the .zip file, you will have android-sdk_r12-windows.zip2. you need to extract the filewhen you do this, you will have a folder named android-sdk_r12-windows3. inside this folder is the folder named android-sdk-windows a. for ease of use rename this folder android4. Move the android folder to the root of your main hard drive (not in any folders)5. inside this folder is a folder called tools, this is where ALL commands you will need are located.To test this, connect phone to computeropen command prompt1. your command prompt should open up and say:c:users(username)> with a blinking cursor2. type cd c:android ools3. your command prompt should now read c:android ools>4. type adb shellif yo
