I've installed the Android SDK and am trying to upgrade to ZVH. Because of this I need to use the ADB shell. In the past I somehow managed to root and install a custom recovery without. I've been reading tutorials on getting the ADB shell but they just don't work.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
masaharustin

when you first open SDK, it will download a list of "updates" for you to choose to install, reject all except the platform tools (one of the top choices) If you dont want that then all you really need is the adb.exe and the dlls for it found in this folder

Download and extract C drive on your computer, if you wish to make it easy to get to it from CMD prompt, copy all the files and paste in directly in the C:\ drive


then open the cmd prompt ( run ---> cmd) then type cd C:\ then adb shell (make sure phone is plugged into computer and that usb debugging is turned on, and that you have the drivers for the phone installed)

adb is included in the zvh root packages that you download. Theoretically it should work without you needing to download the sdk, but I haven't tested on a clean machine.

I tried to minimize how much interaction you need to do with adb by automating actions. I think the only interaction with adb you need to type yourself is "adb shell". The rest of the adb interactions are automated.
