I recently received a replacement One because the other developed a weird crack in the screen. I have a windows 8 machine and I have done everything I can try to try get adb to work with this phone and it never does. Suggestions?

it says adb is not recognized as an enternal or external command, operable program or batch file

Is the adb binary in your PATH?

this is because ADB is not set in paths for windows.

lets take it one step at a time.
open a cmd and type the path to where the folder is held:
(ex mine is on the C:\ under android)
for me it would be:
Code:
 cd C:\android
once you've cd to the folder type:
Code:
 adb devices
whats the output?

Hey were you able to fix your issue? I had a similar issue and ended up following this guy's guide: http://zacktutorials.blogspot.com/20...ternal-or.html

about halfway down I changed the paths to make it easier for me. Also there's a 15-second adb installer http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2588979 that works great for windows 8.1.. hope this helped
