the USB driver for windows is available at:

It seems to work... I will update this thread with what I find.

Thanks for posting the driver!

I've tried a few things with adb, and so far I can't get an install to work over usb. I tried the following command.

Quote:

C:\...\android-sdk-windows-1.0_r1\tools>adb install OperaMini.apk
579 KB/s (0 bytes in 278155.000s)
pkg: /data/local/tmp/OperaMini.apk
Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED]

http://www.android-freeware.org/tuto...evice-emulator Had some basic info about the emulator, not sure what would be different for the G1.

The "adb shell" option allows you to access a shell on the phone over USB, which is really great but it appears you don't have root privileges. Any ideas on how to obtain root priveleges? Also, is there a command to install from the android shell? When i cd to /sbin i get access denied. I'm trying to figure out some kind of way to invoke an install either from the device or over USB.

I don't know about the USB installs, but it seems to be something with the APK as well. I also have the OperaMini.apk and it does nothing. I downloaded the iTunes remote via the G1 and it installed just fine without getting a PC involved.

It looks like you have to put the phone into a "Debug on USB" mode to use ADB. It's working for me now.

So you were able to install the opera mini apk through adb with no trouble? I got the error listed above and did have debug mode on

I think that is caused by an issue with the the AndroidManifest.xml file within the APK having to do with going from "beta" to "live" Android. The same reason most of the apps were pulled from the store. I don't believe it takes a major change to make it compatible, but it's fully compiled so, unless you have a decompiler, I think we may be out of luck on that particular one. I have installed other apk's successfully using the same method.

ADB is the Android Debug Bridge that comes as a part of the SKD. I don't think it was really intended as an end user tool. It has to be called from a command line. I know people have built basic UI's for it for file manipulation when the SDK was the only thing out there. If a better solution isn't found shortly I think we'll see one be made, or else I'll make one myself. In the end it seem to make a big difference of what you're trying to install some things work and some don't, there are some differences between the beta SDK and the G1.
