    Hello All,
    I have taken the liberty of re-packaging the adb binary and fastboot binaries so they will work naively on Android into a flashable zip file. With these tools, you can theoretically use your Android device (plus a USB OTG Cable) to connect to another Android Device. If your device has a native USB port (such as the ASUS Transformers), it will work as well.

    As not to conflict with the official adb in /system/bin (which does not work the same way), I renamed these to "kadb" and "kfastboot". You just need to supply your own Terminal Emulator (such as connectbot) to use.

    Example Uses

    1) Unlock a bootloader on a Nexus device (erases all data on the target device)
    kfastboot oem unlock

    2) Lock a bootloader
    kfastboot oem lock

    3) Boot a recovery
    kfastboot boot /sdcard/path/to/recovery.img

    4) Flash a recovery
    kfastboot flash recovery /sdcard/path/to/recovery.img

    5) Reboot into the bootloader
    kadb reboot bootloader

    6) Shell
    kadb shell

    7) Reboot into recovery
    kadb reboot recovery

    8) logcat
    kadb logcat

    9) Sideload an APK file
    kadb install /sdcard/path/to/APK.APK

    10) Push a file
    kadb push /sdcard/path/to/file /sdcard/path/to/destination

    Please remember that these are taking place on the remote device connected via USB. Most, if not ALL ADB commands are supported. You can even modify most linux based one-click root methods (by changing all "adb" references to "kadb" and "fastboot" with "kfastboot") and run them via shell. Its also perfect for remote debugging of embedded Android Systems. Hell, the uses are endless!

    Installation Instructions
    Note : You do not need to be rooted, you do however need a custom recovery or temp boot a custom recovery.
    1) Flash the attached Zip File via any Recovery such as CWM or TWRP
    2) Reboot and install a Terminal Emulator, if using ConnectBot, you should choose the "local" option.
    3) Connect a device and test

    This should support any ARM based device, so far I have tested it on my ASUS Nexus 7 and ASUS Transformer 700 (Stock/Rooted)

    HAVE FUN!!!
