Q. What is ADB ?
Ans. ADB stands for Android Debugging Bridge. Now, for all those don’t know what I am talking about, adb is an integral part of the standard Android SDK and provides the terminal interface access so that you can easily interact with your phone’s file system. Since the Android is made on an open source platform as it’s a Linux based system which is useful for doing advanced operations on the device so that you can root your device as the ADB provides access between the machine as well as the computer.
This is the tutorial for setting up adb for noobs.
No need to download the full SDK.
Just Follow these instructions and you are good to go.
1. Make a Folder C:\SDK\ and copy the extracted files (from attachment) to this folder.

2. Then open CMD and type :
cd c:\sdk\ (Hit Enter)
3. Now type :
adb.exe (Hit Enter)
It will show some data don't freak out.
4. Now type :
adb devices (Hit Enter)
This will show the connected ADB devices.
