Easy and Simple ADB and Fastboot Setup for Newbies (Windows Only)

DISCLAIMER : Best Android Blog would not be held responsible/liable for any damages that occur to your device by following the given below procedure. So, do everything at your own risk.

Instructions:

  • First, download and install the HTC Sync from here.
  • Then extract the archive on your C:drive. You will have C:\android-tools folder.
  • Adding to the system path globally to use the command without browsing to the containing folder.

Method 1:

  • Go to my computer icon do right click and select properties.
  • On the left side of the opened screen select Advanced System Settings (Or Start -> Search -> type sysdm.cpl -> Enter, browse to the Advanced tab)
  • Look down on the opened menu and select Environment Variables.
  • In the lower half are listed the System Variables.
  • Scroll to find “Path” variable, select it and click Edit.
  • On the Edit window in the Variable value field go to the end of the line (do not delete it!) and add without any intervals (spaces):

Code:

;C:\android-tools

Do not forget the semicolon symbol (;)!

  • Click Ok 3 times.

Method 2 (via Command Prompt):

  • Go to start and in the search box type cmd, right click and Run as Administrator.

Type

Code:

setx path /m “%PATH%;C:\android-tools”

and hit enter. Close the CMD window.

TIP: If you put the Adb and fastboot files in C:/windows/system32 (32bit) or in C/windows/sysWOW64 (64bit) you can just use them from any command prompt window.

  • To check is it working properly open Command Prompt (Start -> Search -> type cmd -> Enter) and type adb. If everything is configured properly this should list you the Android Debug Bridge version and the available commands.

HINT : To use adb or fastboot with files in the Command prompt you have to navigate to the folder containing the file first (using the cd command) e.g. “D:\Downloads\Android” and then to execute the command.

Example:

  • Start -> type cmd in the Search box, then Enter. You will see C:\Users\with blinking cursor
  • If your file is on another drive like the example type “d:” (without the quotes), or other drive letter to go to the relevant drive. Skip this if the file is on C: drive.
  • Then type:

cd D:\Downloads\Android to go to the “D:\Downloads\Android” folder. If your path contains spaces (intervals) type it in quotes.

  • The command “cd..” brings you one folder back
