[GUIDE] Basic adb/shell commands for noobs


Basic adb/shell commands for noobs

Here is a list of some of the adb and terminal command I have used it Android frequently. I found that I was always having to look up these commands so I figured I would start keeping track of the common ones in case they can help anyone else. If any of these needs corrections or if you have a good one to add please post it.

Note, I type "cd C:\Android" to get to my Android folder before doing these commands in the command prompt in windows. That way when I do things like pull apps they end up in "C:\Android\apps", same thing if I want to send I file to my phone I throw it in my Android folder and send it to the phone from there.

Through ADB

Pull apps off phone onto computer

Code:
adb pull /system/sd/app app
adb pull /system/sd/app-private app-private
Push apps back to phone from the computer

Code:
adb push app /system/sd/app
adb push app-private /system/sd/app-private
Delete existing apps on SD

Code:
adb shell rm -r /system/sd/app
adb shell rm -r /system/sd/app-private
Through Terminal

Partition SD card - This erases everything on your SD card (*size* being the size of the FAT32 partition)

Code:
$  su
# cd /data
# wget http://64.105.21.209/bin/lib/droid/sdsplit
# chmod 555 sdsplit
# /data/sdsplit -fs *size* (add -nc to the end for JFv1.5ADP)

From the Recovery Screen

Sending an update file to your SD card:

Code:
adb shell mount /sdcard
adb shell rm /sdcard/update.zip
adb push *filename* /sdcard/update.zip
From Fastboot

Restoring a nandroid backup - Start command-prompt/terminal cd to the nandroid folder and enter following commands

Code:
fastboot erase boot
fastboot erase recovery
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash userdata data.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot reboot

Firstly u need drivers for your device (google it)
Now download the latest adb version
And in the folder where you downloaded the adb and the other two files, shift+right click and select open command window
Now you can use the adb commands once you connected your device

You can find all the adb files in my devhost :

Now it will be done

DONT FORGET TO THANK ME MAN ?!!!
