    Using Win 7, Followed above steps to the letter…….stuck at item 6….why sudden ref to ADB ?? Entered adb in command line….couldn’t locate. The command line reads C:UsersUseradb where I have just typed adb …
    The screen returns ‘not recognisable’
    Am I using cmd line incorrectly?

      Once try to navigate to the directory C:Androidsdkplatform-tools and open a command window in that directory. Try typing adb there. If you get a result, you probably didn’t set the environmental variables correctly in the Step 4. The entry in the environmental variables will allow you to run ADB commands from anywhere on your PC.

      P.S. Android SDK is used for various purposes..either for SDKs, Emulator or ADB etc… ADB is the mostly used tool that comes bundled with Android SDK. This guide is just for installing Android SDK, I will make a tutorial on how to use various SDK modules soon. If you just need ADB tools, you can follow the below guide.


      Let me know if you need any help in setting up the SDK

        ziauddin – thanks for taking the time to reply. You were correct re the entry in Step 4 /Environmental Variables – my file ‘Path’ entry for SDK had not been retained, so I re-entered and can now run ADB from Command Prompt. When entering the file path in Step 4 I noticed there were a lot of other paths specified and the edit box showed the tail end of these, so I entered a semi colon and appended the SDK file path. If the other file paths need to be retained it might be worth mentioning his in Step 4, ‘cos I had to think about it. Thanks anyway – I really like droidape tutorials, particularly the background explanations provided to aid understanding the Android environment. When used in conjunction with the actual tutorials these are the best guides I have come across…I am a relative newbie. I used Wugfresh NRT to root and flash Kit Kat to my N7 2012, replacing Lollipop which was way too slow. I unrooted too, but now want to re-root so i can turn of os upgrade notifications. NRT got stuck mid process and I couldnt resolve so decided to try it using droidape tutorial..I’m now going to follow rest of your rooting tutorial….thanks again…
