Basic ADB and Fastboot Commands

Some Basic ADB and Fastboot Commands For Beginners.

Here is a list of some of the adb and terminal commands used for Android devices 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 in comments.

You can run these commands via cmd (command prompt) after connecting your Android devices and correct driver installation. Make a folder with name of adb in C:\ drive in main directory. Then copy adb files download from Minimal ADB and Fastboot Latest Version

Note, I type “cd C:\adb” 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:\adb\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.

ADB Commands:

Pull apps off phone onto computer

adb pull /system/sd/app app
adb pull /system/sd/app-private app-private

Push apps back to phone from the computer

adb push app /system/sd/app
adb push app-private /system/sd/app-private

Delete existing apps on SD

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)

$  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

ADB Sideload From Recovery

adb sideload <filename> and hit Enter

adb sideload update.zip

From Fastboot

fastboot erase boot
