So I'm completely new to Android and ADB, I'm usually very good with computers, but I'm having trouble understanding this, LOL. So I'm trying to use the how to's fund on this site...

But when in the command promp I get this:

I don't have exact links to hand but goto the Development section and your questions can be answered trough reading the threads.

Don't post a thread asking tho. at least not in that section.

Exactly why I posted in here. I looked in that section and the Hero section. Doesn't say anything about getting a $ instead of #

I try to rm an apk and it says:

But first I want to figure out how to Nandroid back up...

ah, you're in a shell. the # indicates root permissions, and the $ indicates that you are a user, with a prompt, but not root permissions

questions: are you doing this while android is running? or are you doing in recovery? and, have you rooted your phone?

ADB for Newbies.
Ok so, im going to use adb push as an example for this.

On a mac, to push adb i would use this:

cd /android-sdk-mac_86/tools (of course the android sdk depends on where you have your sdk saved)

./adb devices (to make sure your adb is running)
./adb push (your file) /data/local/

On windows, you would navigate to your android sdk, then do:

adb devices (to make sure your adb is running)
adb push (your file) /data/local/


I used the data/local/ for an example because that is how you adb a custom boot logo.

Titanium Backup
What I used to remove Sprint Junk Apps

I use Titanium Backup, easiest way to get rid of it. Gives you an option to remove it. Must be rooted to use this app. Just a thought, in case adb is not your cup of tea. Though ADB isn't really hard to use either.
