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

Android Quick App: ADB Wireless


Monday 06th of September 2010 / androidcentral.com
For root users only! If you want to do some of the lower-level stuff with your Android phone, you're going to need ADB, which stands for Android Debug Bridge -- basically a way of connecting your phone to your computer. But what if you don't have your USB cable with you? What if you're phone is right next to your computer, but your nearest USB cable is in your bedroom, and you're too lazy to walk in there and grab it (or your son is asleep right next to it and you don't want to wake him up)? The solution is ADB Wireless. With this app, if your phone and your computer are on the same network, it's a cinch to use ADB. All you have to do is open a command line on your computer and use "adb connect <IP Address>:5555 and you're connected to your phone via ADB just as if you were using your coveted USB cable. Of course, you still need ADB on your computer, which usually means having the Android SDK installed. Hit the break for another screen shot, plus download links.

[Official] Beginners Introduction to the SDK(ADK)


Monday 13th of December 2010 / forums.androidcentral.com
Alright Beginners and new-comers. In an attempt to take something overwhelming, and underwhelm it... I'm going to take what I know and have learned about the SDK over the past few months and try to compile it into a very basic and easy to understand thread. This is going to be the simplest explanation, with the detail it will need. Credits go out to #1 JerzyIrocVaelekigotsanevo4giamlilysdadd3xxhausxregawd_linaedliquid_jesus(Thanks for all your help and taking the time to answer my questions and educate me.) So lets get started. o_O Ready... Breathe... it's not that intimidating. Remember, I don't know A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G! lol So, What is an SDK/ADK? The DK stands for Development Kit. S-Standard / A-Android. What is the primary reason for/benefit of having an SDK installed on my computer? If at any point you would like to start developing applications, this is your starting point. In addition to Eclipse, which I'll discuss later, the Android SDK provides you with the "framworks" of Android 1.6, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, and so on as they're released. What is the "framework"?T

Mac users... here's your basics on ADB


Saturday 10th of April 2010 / forums.androidcentral.com
So there are a lot of tutorials out there for windows and cmd prompt. Not one out there for Mac users, though. I did you all one better. I made a tutorial for you all. I recorded a video tutorial, but the screen capture software I used came out crappy, so I'd rather not even post it.So what is ADB? ADB stands for Android Debugging Bridge and it allows you to gain access to your device. It is an essential part of rooting (if you don't do the flash rec method). It will also allow you to customize a ROM once installed (remove apps and what not). Basically, the code is the same as the windows tutorials, so you can keep those handy. But there are differences.Good thing:Takes a lot less time to install the Mac SDK than the Windows one and you don't need to download the Java developer kit as its built in to Mac. So literally you just download the SDK and you are done with setup. Just unzip it and for the basics of the tutorial, place it in your home folderNo drivers to install So whats different?1. You will use terminal instead of command prompt, but they work very similar. Terminal is loc

Working apps for Nook Color - Page 6

SDK stands for software develpment kit and it's used by developers to make changes, modification and customer roms. Adb stands for android debug bridge and it's just a tool which we use to communicate with an android device through your pc. You use a dos-like program in windows call command prompt (cmd), to type manual commands to your NC. You do not need sdk to enable or use adb. Right now we are using adb to sideload apps manually (once you install ASTRO, it's no longer necessary) and push other commands/changes. Once more development is down on the already released and upcoming sdk, smarter more user friendly windows or web tool will become available. I know on the smartphone side of things, adb is hardly ever used by most normal app/theme/custom rom users.
