Nexus Tools
Nexus Tools is an installer for the Android debug/development command-line tools ADB (Android Device Bridge) and Fastboot for Mac OS X and Linux. The script does not need to be downloaded, simply copy and paste this command into the terminal and run it to install ADB/Fastboot:

Code:
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/corbindavenport/nexus-tools/master/install.sh)
and this command to un-install Nexus Tools:

Code:
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/corbindavenport/nexus-tools/master/uninstall.sh)
Nexus Tools requires sudo privileges to install/uninstall the adb and fastboot tools to /usr/local/bin, so they can be run without typing the full directory. Nexus Tools is licensed under the GPLv3 license, and the source code is at the GitHub project below.

If you have a problem with Nexus Tools, leave a reply below or as an issue on the GitHub project!

New in Nexus Tools 3.1:
  • Added smart remove (on Ubuntu and Debian linux, Nexus Tools will automatically check if the distro's ADB/Fastboot packages are present and allow you to uninstall them)
  • Changed udev rules list to automatically overwrite existing list
  • No longer installs udev list on Mac OS X (because it doesn't use it)

Any chance you can update the script to install ADB 1.0.36?

UPDATED: I downloaded the latest SDK Tools and moved the adb and fastboot binaries into the .nexustools folder and made the binaries executable using chmod +x on both binaries so now I have adb 1.0.36 and the latest fastboot

Hey, would you be able to send me the adb and fastboot files? I don't have Android Studio installed on my Mac and so I can't use sdk tools to update my adb to 1.0.36. Thanks.
