Set Up ADB (Windows 7)

These are instructions on how to set up the ADB on you system in order to do some basic shell commands, etc.  Plug your phone in and turn USB Debugging ON before you attempt this so it downloads the drivers for you.
  1. Download the platform-tools
  2. Extract platform-tools (comes in .7z format)
  3. Using a command prompt type the following commands:
  • cd [directory containing platform-tools]
  • cd platform-tools
  • adb.exe

That's all there is to it, now you should be able to perform commands like:

adb devices - lists devices connected to your computer

adb push - places a file on your phone, eg adb push filename.file /location/

adb pull - pulls a file from your phone, eg adb pull filename.file /location/
