  18. How to install ADB drivers?? When i run adb.exe nothing happens..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Step 1. Java development Kit : Install ADB driver
      1) Download the Java Development Kit software according to your computer window. If you computer support 32 bit then download 32 bit, if it support 64 bit then download 64 bit one.
      JDK 32-bit (x86)
      JDK 64-bit (x64)
      ( Note : Open My computer, right click on blank white area, select properties. Now check the System section, it should be denoted with System type: )
      2) After downloading , double click on them to install it on default location.
      Step 2. Installing SDK manager for ADB driver.
      1) Download the Android SDK package. [Pass : andropark ]
      2) Double click the .exe file to open it & install the android sdk. (Make sure you change the directory that it is installing everything to to c:/android-sdk)
      3) Go inside the android-sdk folder where you instated the android sdk, then Right Click on the SDK Manager.exe & click on Run as Administrator.
      install adb driver
      4) It will ask you to install some packages, select the following and leave all others unchecked :
      Android SDK Tools
      Android SDK Platform Tools
      Google USB Driver Package, Revision XX (XX being the highest number available)
      5) Now click continue and follow the on screen prompts until all of the packages are installed and it finishes.
      6) On your phone, click Settings > Applications > Development and turn ON the USB Debugging.
      (Note :- If you are using Ice Cream Sandwich , click on Settings > Developer Options & turn ON the USB Debugging.)
      7) Now connect your phone to computer with USB cable.
      8) (i) Now Open the android-sdk folder which is inside C:\ drive.
      (ii) Then open the platform-tools folder inside that.
      (iii) Press & hold the Shift-Key on your keyboard, right click on blank white area inside the folder & select Open Command Window Here.
      [Note :- If using Windows XP, then above step in (8.C) won’t work. So instead of that step do this; Goto Start > Run > type cmd and hit enter button.Then type cd c:android-sdkplatform-tools and hit enter, then continue.]
      9) Now type the following command in command prompt window & hit enter button on keyboard.
      adb devices
      You should see a serial number pop up, it’s the serial number of your phone. This means you are all set!
      So after typing the above command if you see the Serial Number of your device in the Black Command Prompt Window, then your Process Complete here. No need to follow the bellow steps anymore. You have successfully Install the ADB driver.
      But If you do NOT see a serial number, then we need to install the Universal Pdanet drivers manually which is guided in Section II below. Follow the bellow procedure.
      Step 3. Installing PDAnet driver for Android
      Download Pdanet driver
      Downlaod the pdanet driver from above link, then use this guide bellow to install it properly on your pc.
      Guide to install android driver.
      Testing ADB driver installation(checking…)
      After this as far back as anyone can remember nitty gritty technique now its the opportunity to test if you have successfully fixed the ADB driver or not. Give me a chance to let you know that as this establishment process is truly huge & Hard enough so you might get disappointment to establish it legitimately in first attempt, yet don’t lose trust restart you Pc & attempt again you will get succeed beyond any doubt.

  19. [continued]..

    Test for Window 7 :-
    (i) Open C:\ drive then into the android-sdk folder, then go inside the Platform Tools Folder , now Press & hold the shift key and right click on any blank white area inside that folder & choose open a command window here.
    ii) A Black Command prompt screen will appear before you, now connect your device with computer by turning on the USB debugging & then type adb devices on then black screen & press enter button.
    adb-devices
    (iii) Now if it shows :- List of adb devices attached with your device name. Then congrats you have successfully install the ADB driver, but if it stops on Waiting for Device then you have to restart the process from beginning.
    Test for Window XP :-
    (i) Goto Start > Run > type cmd and hit enter button.Then type cd c:android-sdkplatform-tools and hit enter.
    (ii) A Black Command promt screen will appear before you, now connect your device with Pc by turning on the USB debugging & then type adb devices on then black screen & press enter button.
