The really small and blazing fast ADB and Fastboot installer for Windows


Apart from many other installers widely available on XDA, they all had two things missing; ability to fetch latest version automatically and be really small in size. Well, I have loads of free time so I started working on this small nifty installer for ADB and Fastboot for Windows. What sets it apart from the all other installers?

** FEATURES **
  • Installer entirely coded in C++ and uses default Win32 APIs
  • Compatible with all versions of Microsoft Windows later than Windows XP
  • Really small size (146 kB installer + 1 MB adb / fastboot zip)
  • Latest version of ADB downloaded automatically from Github Repository and installed system-wide
  • Seamless install of ADB/Fastboot drivers (Google only for now)
  • Fully Open Source

** REQUIREMENTS **
  • Microsoft Windows Vista or later
  • Active Internet connection
  • Administrative privileges

** DOWNLOADS **
installer-version-1.2-stable: https://github.com/hackslashX/ADB-Fa...aller-1.2s.exe (146 kB size; adb package will be downloaded separately)

** SOURCE CODE **
For all my Open Source software fans: https://github.com/hackslashX/ADB-Fa.../master/source

ADB version update 1.0.39-r3db08f2c6889-android has been successfully pushed to the GitHub repository. Simply rerun the installer to automatically download and install the latest version.

a noob question: where does it install adb ? i try the command "adb devices" in terminal but it says following

Code:
C:\Users\John>adb devices
'adb' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
i also saw in C: drive but no folder like android or adb ?
i just want to access my adb shell for my nougat device on my pc win7.

thanks in advance

It installs it to C:\Windows\adb.exe.
Did you run the installer as administrator and did the installation completed successfully. You also must be connected to internet during installation.

your installer is recognised as a trojan: https://www.virustotal.com/de/file/7...is/1505028376/

The installer is fully open source. You can check the source code and rest assured there is no Trojan. Even compile it for yourself

Bitdefendender removes what I assume to be the temporary download of an ADB file. Any way we can fix that?

I'll test it on Bitdefender today to check if it is really the case. The only reason why antivirus detects it as a suspicious file is because it copies all files to Windows directory

Could you stick the files somewhere safe (but unsuspicious) then add that to PATH?

Yep, can be easily done. I'll implement this functionality in the weekends.
