[TUT] Getting Windows to detect your Adam via ADB
How to get ADB to work with Adam by detecting in Windows properly.
Hello I wanted to document a way to get this going so hopefully this helps anyone interested in using ADB with their Adams since the original tutorial seems to lack some important "how-to" parts.
Another thing.. I am only trying to help and add to the adam experience.. I am not a teacher or anything so if you are unsure about a step STOP and go do some research.. this is for someone who already has a general knowledge and to assist those to are trying to learn this.. its not a substitute for learning it yourself.
Here are the steps that you need to follow in order to enable these drivers:
You must have Android SDK installed before you can proceed!!
If you don’t have it already, proceed to download here

Make sure you download the Google USB Driver Package as well.
Open the google-usb_driver folder that you will find inside your Android SDK folder.
Open the android_winusb.inf file in notepad or any text editor to edit it.

Go to device manager and Identify your device from the list, right-click it and click ‘Update Driver Software..’.
Choose to browse your computer for driver software and then select to pick from a list device drivers on your computer.
Choose to view all devices and click ‘Have Disk…’.
Browse to the google-usb_driver folder inside your Android SDK folder and select the android_winusb.inf file.
If you get any warnings prompts telling you that the driver might not be compatible, just choose to continue installing.
Once the drivers have been installed, you should be able to use ADB with your device.
You will want to connect your device via usb and make sure usb debugging is on. (Settings, applications, development, usb debugging CHECKED!!)
To confirm that your device is recognized, launch a Command Prompt window and enter these commands:
If you see your device name or a few numbers as the output under the list of devices, your device is now recognized by ADB.
