Default [Prerequisite to Rooting] Android SDK Installer - v3.0 for Windows

**Microsoft Windows ONLY*

This installer is for new people looking to root their HTC Thunderbolt (not sure on other HTC devices but should work.) I compiled an SDK installer that installs all the necessary files to the directory of your choice (default C:\sdk) to your PC. This installer also includes HTC Sync for the Drivers as well as Java if you do not already have Java installed.

So if you're new to Android and want the tools to root, this might be the place to start before making that big step.

**If you have problems with it installing, try right clicking and running as administrator



Android SDK Installer with HTC Sync and Java v3.0 - 117 MB



*This is a pretty good size file but remember it also includes HTC Sync and Java within the installer.

*You cannot download Java and HTC Sync at the same time, so be patient.

*If you do not want to install HTC Sync but want the driver allow it to install them and then cancel out when asking to install HTC Sync.

*If you already have Java you can cancel out of the Java Installer.

**Download might take longer depending on your Internet Connection.


Please let me know what you think below.

Thanks!

Changelog:
v3.0 - Maintenance Update
v2.0 - Fixed Directory Issues
v1.0 - Initial Release


Also, here is a great tutorial brought to you by Captainkrtek.

The only difference in the tutorials is the path.

The path for adb with this installer will be: C:\sdk\platform-tools


*Big thanks to CoolSilver for helping me test this out

Such a good idea. Trying to talk someone through installation of sdk is kind of maddening. Do we still have to add the path?

No, it auto installs to C:\sdk

C:\sdk\platform-tools\

This will help a lot of those I see struggling with root not knowing anything about sdk/adb. Great post. Perhaps linking a guide to adb will help people as well?
