PostSubject: Setting up ADB   August 22nd 2009, 11:20 pm

Things you need:

Android SDK 1.5r2 - Download
Winrar - 32 bit download D64 Bit download
Windows PC
USB Cable
A Rooted HTC Dream (Google G1)


Setting up the Android 1.5r2 SDK

Download the file from above
Unzip to your desktop
Take the "android-sdk-windows-1.5_r2" folder and move it to the root of your hard drive (C:\)

Right click on My Computer and click properties
Select the Advanced Tab or Advanced System Setting (Vista)
Select Environment Variables...
Press New

For Variable Name type: adb
For Variable Value type: C:\android-sdk-windows-1.5_r2\tools


Preparing your phone for ADB

Go to Settings on your phone
Select Applications
Select Development
Make sure 'USB Debugging' is checked


Installing Drivers

Plug in your phone through USB and DO NOT MOUNT IT!!!!!
Your computer should see a new device and try to install Android 1.0 driver (If it doesnt, scroll down to the "Im not getting a notification of Android ADB when i plug in my USB" section)
Let it load
Once it cant find them select "Install drivers from my pc"
The drivers you need are in the Android SDK 1.5r2 folder (C:\android-sdk-windows-1.5_r2\usb_driver)
Depending on your OS pick x86 or amd64
You ADB Android Device should now be installed! Good Job


Check if your phone is detected by ADB

Open up Command Prompt (Go to run, type in cmd, press enter)
Type in

cd C:\android-sdk-windows-1.5_r2\tools === Press Enter
adb devices === You should see your device listed
adb shell === you should see # in the next line
Now you are all set to run adb commands

Note: for a list of commands type in 'adb' in cmd




"Im not getting a notification of Android ADB when i plug in my USB"

Why: Your computer has detected your phone but as a protable device and as a storage device.

Fix: This took me a lot of research and time to figure out so this is what your are going to do.

First download USBDeview - Here
Unzip it
Run USBDeview.exe as Administrator
You will see all drivers being used on your computer
Highlight and Uninstall all drivers with the description have HTC Android (Should be 3 of them)
Right Click on the driver and press uninstall
Once done, Unplug your phone and plug it back in
You should now get the notification of the ADB device
Follow the steps above to install the drivers


When Typing just adb in cmd you will get whats called a "usage doc" which gives you a lits of commands that you can use:

-d - directs command to the only connected USB devic
returns an error if more than one USB device is
-e - directs command to the only running emulator.
returns an error if more than one emulator is r
-s - directs command to the USB device or emulator w
the given serial number
-p - simple product name like 'sooner', or
a relative/absolute path to a product
out directory like 'out/target/product/sooner'.

If -p is not specified, the ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT

environment variable is used, which must
be an absolute path.
