I've been following BGR.in's guide (can't post link) on how to install android developer preview on my nexus 5. I'm on the last step "Now that the device is prepped, in the command prompt simply type the flash-all command." and this is what I get:


"Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]
(c) 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>flash-all
'flash-all' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file."


hammerhead-lpv79-preview-ac1d8a8e.tar is in the same folder as the program. I launched py_cmd to enter the command.

Am I doing something wrong? Please help me flash this new beta version of android.

You need to type "flash-all.bat" not just "flash-all"

Hi, thanks for the quick reply!

This is what I get when I type that:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>flash-all.bat
'flash-all.bat' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file."

I'm using py_cmd.exe

Windows 8.1 x64
starting to panic lol

Tried this:

Right-click on My Computer and select Properties.
Choose Advanced, and click on the Environment Variables button.
Navigate to System Variables and double click on Path to edit.
Enter the full path to your tools folder.

Still get the same message.

There's no "flash-all.bat" file in the folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Minimal ADB and Fastboot

Should there be, where do I get it from if so??

Thanks!
