    The purpose of this thread is to help windows users install the Android Debugging Bridge. There are many ways to install ADB program files in windows. This is the simplest method I have found, and always has the latest Google version of ADB. The program is called Minimal ADB and Fastboot and comes with its own installer. The program is small, total installation of Minimal ADB and Fastboot is around 2 MB in size.

    ***** To Install ADB

    1. Download Minimal ADB and Fastboot here >>>> [TOOL]Minimal ADB and Fastboot [7-18-13] - xda-developers
    All credit to the poster, shrimp208 and the developers of the program.

    2. Click the file you just downloaded and install the program. Allow the installer to put a shortcut on your desktop, this step saves you the trouble of navigating to the minimal adb and fastboot folder.

    Thats it, adb is installed.


    Now, if you want to connect your tablet, follow these steps

    3. Enable usb debugging in the Developer settings on tablet.

    4. Connect tablet to PC usb port (drivers must install. If not, install tablet drivers) Drivers for Gen4 devices are still a work in progress, start with coby Gen3 drivers here: >>> http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...59-basic-driver-installation-windows-pcs.html
    Then add this file to your .android directory >>>>> Coby_Gen4_driver (Tested in Windows 7 and 8 only)

    5. Now that you have installed the program and connected the tablet, click the desktop shortcut or navigate to minimal adb and fastboot directory and open a command prompt (old dos window).

    At the command prompt type this command: adb devices

    if everything went right you will see:

    List of devices attached
    200800411 device

    Your device numbers will vary, but the format will be the same.

    ADB is now ready to use with your tablet. When you type the command: adb shell, you are running a terminal on your tablet, so within the window you are now running linux. type the command "exit" to close the terminal session on the tablet. Type "exit" again to close ADB window.

    Any questions or corrections post here and this guide will be updated.
