[Tutorial] How to setup ADB and Fastboot

#1
(This post was last modified: 08-24-2017, 08:43 AM by hovatek. )

ADB stands for Android Debug Bridge, while Fastboot stands for Fastboot. They're two very important tools as far as Android is concerned. This tutorial will explain how to install ADB, Fastboot & their drivers

Requirement

If yours is a Mediatek (MTK) device then install Mediatek drivers on the PC using the PdaNet method @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-317.html

Note

If after following this guide, ADB or Fastboot still isnt detecting your device then it might be due to:

* ADB Clash (see https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-10111.html )
* Old ADB / Fastboot versions (see https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-17105.html )

Procedure

Installer Method (Easier)

# See the video tutorial below or @ http://youtu.be/Fp-D1Mg0HWg






* Download the ADB, Fastboot & drivers installer @ https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=ht...8297851314

* Run the Installer as Administrator

Manual Method


* Download ADB, Fastboot, and other tools @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-17104.html


Note: The tools found in the download are provided by Google, found in and extracted from Android SDK


* Extract the contents directly into your C:\ partition
* You should now have a folder C:\Android
* Press Win + R on your keyboard to bring up the Run dialog
* Once the Run box is open, type in sysdm.cpl and hit OK
* Once you hit OK, the System Properties panel should open
* Click on the Advanced tab

* From the Advanced tab click on Environment Variables
* At the Environment Variables window find where it says Path under System variables, click on it, and click the Edit button
* When the Edit System Variable window pops up, type in
Code:
;C:\Android
 
at the very end and hit OK

* Make sure you type in exactly ;C:\Android (be sure to include the semi-colon at the beginning)
*After clicking OK, close out all windows
* You are done!
* Once you have them installed, using ADB or Fastboot is as easy as opening command prompt, typing in adb xxx or fastboot xxx (with xxx being the command you want to run)
