Default [TOOL]Minimal ADB and Fastboot [7-18-13]


Introduction

Quote:
ADB and Fastboot are arguably two of the most indispensable tools used when working with Android devices. If you really want to modify, debug, and tweak along with their countless uses in rooting, and other procedures ADB and Fastboot are a must for any Android device owner. Typically if you want to install ADB and Fastboot you have to download and setup the Android SDK (If you really want to learn about Android Development I highly recommend downloading and installing the full Android SDK from here), but this can be unnecessary for people who just want to install ADB and Fastboot. To simply the process I created a windows installer that will install the latest version of ADB and Fastboot for you quickly and easily. The total installation of Minimal ADB and Fastboot is around 2 MB in size (Compared to the 90+ MB size of the Android SDK Tools, and 425+ MB size of the complete Android SDK) making it very lightweight.

  • Easily Install ADB and Fastboot with a simple to use installer
  • Lightweight, total installation around 2 MB in size
How to Install

Quote:

Prerequisites
  • Your device is plugged into your computer
  • You have ADB debugging enanbeled under Developer Options
  • You have installed the necessary drivers and your computer is recognizing your device
  1. Download the Minimal ADB and Fastboot setup.exe from here
  2. Follow the Installers instructions and select where you would like to install Minimal ADB and Fastboot too (For simplicity I choose to install it to the Desktop)
  3. After you have chosen where to install Minimal ADB and Fastboot too select whether you would like to create a Start Menu Folder or not for the instalation
  4. Once you have chosen where to install it to and if you want to create a Start Menu Folder select the install option
  5. After the Installation Wizard has completed you can select to start Minimal ADB and Fastboot
  6. You can also start Minimal ADB and Fastboot by navigating to the Start Menu Folder you choose to create during installtion or the desktop shortcut you choose to create and selecting Minimal ADB and Fastboot
  7. You should now see a command window open, with the command window open you can now issue ADB and Fastboot commands to your device

For more information on issuing commands to your device using ADB and Fastboot I would recommend taking a look at this guide on ADB and this guide on Fastboot.

Nice tool! I see you linked my guide... That's more the reason I should finish it haha!
Anyway this would be perfect for anyone looking for, as you rightly put it, the two most indispensable tools for android, and don't want anything but.
Don't know how possible or easy it is to implement but auto adding a path in environmental variables would be a great addition to your .exe
Either this or maybe adding instructions how to do so, anyway I'll be sure to link this, great work!

Thanks! I'll definitely think about adding in an environmental variable for the path to the .exe or as an option once the user setups the tool. I'll make it optional as some people don't like to mess with how they have there environmental path variable setup in Windows. Also thank you very much for linking it .

This really helps me out since I have a couple of PCs located at different cities.
And when I want to flash the latest rom using ADB- or Fastboot-free computers, I don't have to download the whole Android SDK any more.
Big thanks to you,bro.
