Hello and welcome ! , I wanna play a game

this tool made specially for noobs & lazy guys , as some of us hate working with any command prompt -and ADB/fastboot are command prompts- so they avoid using it , even if they needed to!
now forget that , this tool is the simplest Graphical user interface ADB,
which will grab popular ADB & Fastboot commands in simple combobox to use


Features..!

  • My tool is featured in XDA-Portal . Tab Here
  • Main Features

    • this tool is written in java, which mean the simplicity , the smallest size and the fastest functions!
    • this tool depends on your PC , it does nothing on it's own , that makes it very small (about 38 kb!) but powerful
    • Currently this tool is my only active project , so i'm working on updating it ASAP
  • Features for human being (to use)
    • my tool does the most popular/important pure ADB & fastboot operations ,
      these operations are :
      • Check if Device connected properly (adb devices).
      • Android Logcat.
      • Install a specific APK file(Android Application).
      • Uninstall apk <package> .
      • pull a file from your Android Device to your PC.
      • push a file from your PC to your Android Device.
      • Look at tasks running in your Android device.
      • Check your Android Device Memory usage.
      • Check your Android Device storage usage.
      • Kill all background processes.
      • Normal Reboot.
      • Reboot to recovery mode
      • Reboot to Download mode (for Samsung Devices).
      • Reboot to bootloader mode.
      • Reboot to Fastboot mode.
      • Flash Update.zip.
      • Flash recovery.img.
      • Flash boot.img.
      • Wipe (System,data & cache) before restoring nandroid backup.
      • Flash system.img.
      • Flash data.img.
      • Flash cache.img.
    • My tool UI is very simple and easy to use , it's just about 300 x 450 JFrame

Requirements..!
  • You need JRE (the JAVA Runtime Environment ) to run the Tool , you can get it from here .
  • ADB / Fastboot in your PC (are you kidding?! ).
  • USB Debugging enabled in your Android Device.
  • a Human brain which can read the 'How To' in this Thread.

How to & Downloads..!

  • Download the "ADB For noobs STABLE V2.5.jar" from HERE (or in Downloads Tab up) ,
    open the downloaded file and set your ADB directory and click Set Data button (you must do that at least once), to make the tool know where's your ADB to use it.
  • Select the desired operation , and add required directories , then tab Activate , and that's it ! , isn't it Simple ?!
  • use Reset button to reset text fields

Screenshots...!

Newest Version (2.5) :





Old Version (2.0) :



Old Version (1.7) :



Or see the Screenshots Tab up.

i understand that you mean Setup window at first run .. but this will make the app for windows only , also you just need to run the 1st tool just once , then you can just delete it , but i'll try my best to make it easier , btw , before a day from making this thread , it was so dummy and you should add your adb dir every time to run it , as this pic : http://i.imgur.com/xbwtquz.jpg
btw , what about it's operations , you find any thing bad ? thx very much for your help and report

EDIT: Oh , i think i got an idea .. next update will solve this , also will have more operations , may be fastboot commands too

No need for setup window, use java ini/properties file instead.

Now that the Gear has moved from Android to Tizen we need a modded version to work with SDB instead of ADB.
