    Default cant connect to adb- am i doing something wrong?

    Dont know if I am doing something wrong here but my phone isnt showing up under ADB under device manager and under CMD I cannot access "adb devices", I would like to root my thunderbolt but I cant tell if I have the right drivers installed.

    I downloaded htc sync from one of the links listed, but I used to downloading ADK dev drives etc... but dont have those on my computer right now. Any links would be helpful as I would like to connect this phone properly and root it so i can remove the crapware that verizon has put on it. Thank you very much

    What does it say when you type "adb devices"? command not found or it just doesn't list anything?

    When rooting I believe you need to delete HTC sync from your computer. It causes a conflict. USB debugging on.

    Sounds like you haven't added it to your system path as it isn't seeing the command. You need to either add it or "cd" to where your android sdk folder is located and go into tools or platform-tools depending on which version you downloaded.

    -Install the Android SDK.
    -Add to your Environment Variable PATH the path to the "/platform-tools" directory in the Android SDK.
    -Install HTC Sync.

    adb is now available to you and your ThunderBolt will be detected.

    I am having a problem loading up the adb to connect to my HTC Thunderbolt.

    C:\Users\Logan>%adb% devices
    * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    * daemon started successfully *
    List of devices attached


    C:\Users\Logan>%adb% kill-server

    I keep getting this over and over, never connecting. I am not sure if there is something with that lame *** partition that Verizon put on the phone or what, but i have been working on this for a couple of hours now. Any help would be great.

    Thanks,
    Logan

    Did you install HTC Sync to get the adb drivers?

    I myself added it to my path but still doesn't work unless i go down into the directory.

    Also in step four of those directions it says to download usb driver, unless phone is HTC or so then you have to install the drivers for the phone via software from vendor.

    I thought using adb on ubuntu would be easier; but after getting the program to run successfully I can't find my device.

    After work I'm gonna try again. Should I use a windows machine? Is it easier?

    Windows instructions for everyone who is having trouble above:

    1) Install Android SDK
    2) Add the "platform-tools" folder in the Android SDK to your PATH Environment Variable.

    This will fix any "adb cannot be found" errors.

    3) Install HTC Sync (this app includes drivers). After it installs the prerequisite drivers, you can cancel the setup if you don't want to use the Sync program itself.
    4) Turn on USB Debugging Mode on your device (Settings->Applications->Development)
    5) (Re)Plug-in your Thunderbolt.
    6) Set the Thunderbolt to Charge-Only mode so that you can access the sdcard via adb (Disk Mode does not let you do this) and so that HTC Sync doesn't bother you (which HTC Sync mode will make sure happens).

    This will fix any undetected T-Bolt issues. If the device still doesn't detect, restart your machine.

    Please do exactly as stated above (I've followed this procedure multiple times in succession of different machines and it works just fine) before posting that something isn't working, else it becomes difficult to troubleshoot. If all else fails, uninstall all the HTC stuff from your computer, restart the machine, and start over from step #3.

    I set the path variable and also installed the "google usb driver package", but my phone still does not show up when I type "adb devices". It just says "List of devices attached" with nothing below it. I think my problem may be that the first time I plugged in my phone to my computer it tried to install adb drivers or something and failed. Any help?

    Edit: I restarted my computer a couple times, and now it shows up.

    Did you get it working? If not, try unplugging the device and plugging it back in. If that doesn't work, try restarting the phone and then plugging it back in. In my case, I had to uninstall ADB from device manager, reboot computer, plug the phone back in and let it reinstall the drivers.
