It's a standard installer, meaning it includes an uninstall routine. But, even if it didn't have one you could simply delete the directory it resides in without penalty.
Then you need to ask your questions in the forums related to your device. This thread isn't the right place for tech support for your device.
You have a Samsung device. Unless things have changed since my last Samsung, their devices do not recognize fastboot commands, rendering fastboot useless.
Odin-compatible recovery images (extension .img.tar) can be found at twrp.me. Install one of them using Odin. You can then, assuming the copy of TWRP you're trying to install is an unofficial copy, upgrade to that unofficial version in TWRP.Thank you very much for your response. That makes it pretty difficult. I have a twrp file ready that must be installed on a tab 3 via fastboot.this twrp is an IMG file and I cannot flash it via Odin. can this not be solved in another way that fast food will work with Samsung? skip
There isn't much to update. The 30KB Windows stub used in MAF doesn't need an update as it has no bugs. The only feature MAF does not have is an automatic or manual update routine, but since only ADB and Fastboot need updating a simple trip to Google and anyone can download updated ADB and Fastboot files direct from them. If the end user really wants the convenience of an update tool for downloading ADB and Fastboot someone on this thread provided a link to one several pages back.
How to install adb
ScreenshotsADB and Fastboot are arguably two of the most indispensable tools used when working with Android devices. If you really want to modify, debug, and tweak along with their countless uses in rooting, and other procedures ADB and Fastboot are a must for any Android device owner. Typically if you want to install ADB and Fastboot you have to download and setup the Android SDK (If you really want to learn about Android Development I highly recommend downloading and installing the full Android SDK from here), but this can be unnecessary for people who just want to install ADB and Fastboot. To simply the process I created a windows installer that will install the latest version of ADB and Fastboot for you quickly and easily. The total installation of Minimal ADB and Fastboot is around 2 MB in size (Compared to the 90+ MB size of the Android SDK Tools, and 425+ MB size of the complete Android SDK) making it very lightweight.
How to Install
- Your device is plugged into your computer
- You have USB Debugging enabled under Developer Options (Note: This may be listed as ADB Debugging on some ROM's)
- You have installed the necessary drivers and your computer is recognizing your device
- Download the Minimal ADB and Fastboot setup.exe from here
- Follow the Installers instructions and select where you would like to install Minimal ADB and Fastboot too (For simplicity I choose to install it to the Desktop)
- After you have chosen where to install Minimal ADB and Fastboot too select whether you would like to create a Start Menu Folder or not for the instalation
- Once you have chosen where to install it to and if you want to create a Start Menu Folder select the install option
- After the Installation Wizard has completed you can select to start Minimal ADB and Fastboot
- You can also start Minimal ADB and Fastboot by navigating to the Start Menu Folder you choose to create during installation or the desktop shortcut you choose to create and selecting Minimal ADB and Fastboot
- You should now see a command window open, with the command window open you can now issue ADB and Fastboot commands to your device
For more information on issuing commands to your device using ADB and Fastboot I would recommend taking a look at this guide on ADB and this guide on Fastboot.
