Easy ADB Install
Use this method if you will not be developing with SDK
I kanged this from TheFredElement, but I added a few files. One for screenshots and the other just in case.
Download -> EasyADB
Ensure USB Debugging is on. Settings/apps/development
1. Download the EasyADB zip
2. Extract the files
3. Copy SDK Tools folder
4. Navigate to C: drive
5. Paste SDK Tools folder on root of C: drive
6. Open command prompt in Windows Start icon (in search textfield type in cmd and press enter)
7. In command prompt type in
8. cd C:\SDK_tools is your path. Now enter:
9. ADB will execute and start
10. Connect XOOM via USB and wait for drivers to install. If not then install these Drivers
11. Type in:
Daemon will start and your XOOM should now be recognized. An alphanumeric string will denote the presence of your device.
Installing SDK and ADB for Development
Download and install these files:
The SDK file is an executable so just run it and it will install. It will install Java Dev Kit if you don't have it.
After it's done you might get a java path error (I did). No worries though.
Go to where android-sdk-windows was installed. (default is program files (x86) on the C drive) OR (android) Either way its in a folder on the c drive
Copy the android-sdk-windows
Paste on root of the C drive
Copy all files from the tools folder and paste in the platform-tools folder (or vice versa)
Open command prompt in windows icon, in search bar, enter cmd and press enter
Connect XOOM via usb.
Let it install all drivers.
If it doesn't install all of them, direct it towards the driver folder and select the drivers.
After all drivers are installed, in cmd window enter: DON"T COPY RED
cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools <enter> <-this is if you put everything in the platform-tools folder. If you put it in tools then just put tools
adb.exe <enter> <-ADB menu will start and run
adb devices <enter> <-daemon will start successfully and spit out a string of about 20 letters and numbers. this is your device
adb reboot <enter> <-The XOOM will reboot
You will have to enter the path (cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools) and (adb.exe) everytime you want to use adb. You can go to Environmental Variables to set add the path.
Right click My Computer
Advanced system settings
System Variables -> Path
OR if ADB is in tools
