    How-To: adb for Windows, made easy?
    coppied from [b/[/b]

    OK, so we all want to jump in and mod/hack our Droid and rightfully so, being open source and all.
    But wanting and able to do can be a little frustrating for some, me included, until I figured it out
    We see people answering our questions, "just do adb to do this and that". Which usually makes us react when we first see it "adb?, what the he!! is that, and where is it?", I don't get it in terminal or get errors", etc etc.

    ADB = Android Debug Bridge, In a nutshell for our(typical users) purposes, It allows us to access our Droid using the Command Prompt on our PC. If you want to know more, google it, or visit Androids Developer site here:
    Android Debug Bridge | Android Developers

    Also for a little more in depth information, check out the thread here at the DroidForums written by alquimista:
    How To Use ADB: All Commands and Options

    I'm going to try and layout as simple as I can, how to set it up on a Windows PC. I'm sure there are other variations or preferences by others, but this is how I did it, and it works as designed.
    I'll try and keep it simple as possible yet with just enough detail to hopefully eliminate some of the frustrations,,lol.

    NOTE: If I miss anything or you have something to add(without getting to complex) please let me know and I'll make the appropriate edits to this post.

    We need to get a few things before getting started with adb, so for now it's just download time.
    Download everything to your Desktop for now, so you don't have to hunt them down later during this process. When we're finished and if you decide to keep everything, then move the downloaded files to where ever you please.

    Download the SDK from Android - This is where the "elusive" adb resides.
    Android SDK | Android Developers
    (The link takes you to the download site where you can get the SDK for Windows, Linux, and Mac.)

    Windows users download (current version at time writing this guide- Make sure you get the latest version though)

    Download the Motorola USB Drivers
    Motorola drivers are needed for proper communication between adb and our Droid in Windows.

    Your going to get one of these:
    Motorola 4.6.0 Driver with MotoConnect* (for 32-bit versions of Windows
    • GenoCide_187
    • Precedent
    • Clock Work Mod
    • AreaRom v3.2

    If it ain't broke, fix it til it is
