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.
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
Partition SD card – This erases everything on your SD card (size being the size of the FAT32 partition)
$ su # cd /data # wget http://18.104.22.168/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:
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
Restoring a nandroid backup – Start command-prompt/terminal cd to the nandroid folder and enter following commands
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
Get device information via fastboot command:
