If you’re serious about rooting your Android device, then you’re going to have to get used to the Android Debug Bridge (ADB), which is Android’s most widely-used debugging tool.
ADB lets users push a file to the /system directory, which is an essential part of rooting. However, installing ADB on Windows isn’t always easy…until now.
Usually, you have to download a 100MB file (ADT Bundle + SDK Tools) to install ADB on your Windows PC. Thanks to a clever workaround from an XDA Developers Forum member, your ADB adventure just became much easier.
XDA Developers Forum member snoop5 created a simple tool to install ADB on a Windows PC in just under 15 seconds.
Here’s what this handy tool does:
-Installs all required Android device drivers
-Does it in under 15 seconds
-Only 9MB download size
-Works on both 32 bit and 64 bit systems (no separate download required; the tool automatically identifies your system)
The tool walks you through the entire process, so it doesn’t get much easier than this. It’s currently available for a free download here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2588979
Do you have a faster way to install ADB on Windows? Probably not.
