Nexus Tools is an installer for the Android debug/development command-line tools ADB (Android Device Bridge) and Fastboot for Mac OS X and Linux. The script does not need to be downloaded, simply copy and paste this command into the terminal and run it to install Nexus Tools:

Code:
bash <(curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/corbindavenport/nexus-tools/master/install.sh)
and this command to un-install Nexus Tools:

Code:
bash <(curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/corbindavenport/nexus-tools/master/uninstall.sh)
These commands will download the selected script and run it. The script will download the files it needs during runtime, so it requires an internet connection. The script works on both Mac OS X and Linux (as long as the curl package is installed).

Nexus Tools requires sudo privileges to install/uninstall the adb and fastboot tools to /usr/bin, so they can be run without typing the full directory. Nexus Tools is licensed under the GPLv3 license.

Support for Google Chrome OS is experimental at this time, as I was only able to test it on a build of Chromium for x86 PCs. I don't have an actual Chromebook to test it on, but Nexus Tools should work correctly on both x86 and ARM Chromebooks.

Nexus Tools requires sudo privileges to install/uninstall the adb and fastboot tools to /usr/bin, so they can be run without typing the full directory. Nexus Tools is licensed under the GPLv3 license.

This looks interesting.

I have an x86 Chromebook that I'd like to try this out on. One silly question though, where exactly am I entering the command to download the script?

You need to visit the github page and type in the terminal: git clone git@github.com:corbindavenport/nexus-tools.git or get it as a zip archive, extract and run install.sh (not sure if it works on Chromebook).

Actually by entering the command listed on the home page, which is this:
Code:
bash <(curl https://raw.github.com/corbindavenport/nexus-tools/master/install.sh)
your Chromebook will download and run the script automatically. You don't have to download the repository

But since Chromebooks don't have Terminal, in which app/program would I enter the command? Excited to try this, sounds very cool......

I have a ZTE wireless USB modem and unfortunately theres no support for it on Linux. So no internet on linux. Thats what has barred from installing flashtool cz it needs some stuff from the net. All I am saying, can you provide a way which doesnt use internet?
Thanks
