    Install HTC Sync and get the adb driver from there.


    You can uninstall Sync after

    you need to be in the directory (sdk/platform-tools/) that has the adb.exe in it, or edit the PATH variable on your computer.

    Assuming windows vista or higher:
    Press windows key + E to open explorer
    Find your SDK folder
    Shift + right click on the platform-tools folder
    chose "open command window here"

    then try adb.

    Easy way -- put a shortcut to the sdk folder on your desktop. Open it and shift+right click on the platform-tools folder when you need to use adb.

    Harder way, but the right way -- add your sdk\platform-tools and sdk\tools folder to your PATH:


    then whenever you open the cmd window you can just type adb without worrying what folder you're in.

    I was reading in one of the forums that you can use adb to push them. Maybe i was confused. I have tried flashing them multiple times and havnt had any luck getting them to work on any rom i have tried.

    I apologize for my ignorance but how do i know if it is? i am currently running fresh rom. but i have been switching between fresh and cm 133.

    Also I have been trying to flash new themes and had no success. I made sure the theme was compatible. it keeps aborting the flash when i do it. basically what ive been doing is
    1.DL the theme (zip) to my comp
    2 plug in my phone transfer the whole file to my SD card
    3. boot into recovery
    4. wiped cache
    5."select zip from sd"
    6. then selected the zip file i want to flash
    7. selected install file.

    Here is the link. Its the theme in the first post.


    Is that correct? or am i way off. Thanks. I didnt want to creat another thread thats why i asked here
