    Thumbs up Thank you thank you!!

    This is awesome information for a newbie like me!! I am trying to learn all about my new Android and there is soooo much complicated discussions that a simple clear ADB description and use is a great start for me...

    I can not enter the SDK in the windows through command prompt, should it connect with the device first before running the SDK?

    Thanks t0ast3d, this helped me getting familiar with using ADB. Trying to inform myself as much as possible without blindly rooting my TB or playing with files.

    guys - need your help here (evo 4G). i am guessing these instructions might need a bit of updating because the new "revolutionary" rooting method requires htc sync to be uninstalled. i do have the most current htc drivers, HTCDriver3.0.0.007, which i downloaded and installed previously. should i reinstall sync (hope not)? is there another dot i need to connect to get ADB to work with the revolutionary rooting method?

    i am getting the error message of "adb is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."


    addendum - i uninstalled then reinstalled the HTC drivers using the executable file above, still no luck.

    further addenedum - i think this might be a driver problem. my device "android phone" appears with five different device functions and drivers. three of these are the basic USB composite device, USB mass storage device and F:\ (portable device). the ones that seem related to this issue are (1) "HTC android phone USB device" (disk drive) and (2) "My HTC" (android USB devices). the driver for (1) is a microsoft driver version 6.1.7600.16385 dated 6/21/2006. the driver for (2) is from HTC, version dated 1/3/2011. perhaps this is a problem with the driver for #1? please help, thanks again!

    UPDATE - adb devices works when i open a command prompt on the subdirectory "platform-tools" and not "tools" as mentioned herein and in numerous other places. perhaps this is due to an updated google SDK package since all these directions were written?

    I'v been trying to find out a way to move Apps to SD card on my Note 2 WITHOUT ROOTING MY PHONE

    later on I found out about a way useing ADB (Andriod Debugging Bridge) which has an option that sets/changes the default install location.

    command line: adb shell pm set-install-location 2

    0 [auto]: Let system decide the best location
    1 [internal]: Install on internal device storage
    2 [external]: Install on external media

    which I did and rebooted the phone, tried to download a game to check if it works with no luck! it still uses the phone memory!
    I attached a snapshot of the command line, even when I check the status, the phone replies with the new changed value, so i know the phone system accepted the command, but it does not make the apps save to the SD card!

    does anyone know if it works? or if im missing a step here or there?
    (I did install all required software/drivers, turned on USB debugging, checked the option on Unknown sources, and rebooted the phone).
    thanks for any help!
