    tsanborn79,

    You don't need the ADT plug-in just for the adb.exe utility in the platform-tools.

    Look at this thread http://androidforums.com/faqs/443072-adb-guide-updated-12-05-2011-a.html for information about getting that (there are references to this thread in the how-to root guide (http://androidforums.com/galaxy-nexus-all-things-root/452146-how-root-samsung-galaxy-nexus.html)).

    Cheers and good luck!

    So I can just install the sdk?

    Yes just the sdk is needed. Eclipse is a development environment

    Yes, if you are just going to root, you don't need the development pieces (i.e,. the ADT plug-in, Eclipse, etc.).

    If you are just going after the adb utility for rooting purposes, then you'll have to install the platform-tools portion of the SDK setup.

    However, if your goal is to root, you'll also need the fastboot utility, which is no longer part of the SDK.

    Check out the FAQ thread I posted below (referencing http://androidforums.com/faqs/443072-adb-guide-updated-12-05-2011-a.html) for different methods of installing the SDK to get adb.

    The "Mini-SDK" portion in the middle will also tell you how you get just get adb and fastboot utilities.

    Cheers!

    Expand the tree for http with dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse (note http, not https.)

    It should not be https dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse
    It should be http dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse

    I' m having a similar issue. When I go into Eclipse & click on Help - Install New Software - then add adt-plugin & go to dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse it comes up with developer tools & when I go to install them it says Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency Cannot satisfy dependency:
    From: Pulsar for Mobile Developers 1.3.1.20100916-1202 (epp.package.pulsar 1.3.1.20100916-1202) Thank You for any help you can give.

    I had the same problem yesterday...and I wasted the whole day..I tried to find the solution, but I couldn't

    At last today, I downloaded eclipse again and re-installed it....and now the error has gone...

    If you are starting new one..then before that delete the previous one...by removing Workspace folder from your C drive...and then start it...

    If you have downloaded recently or have latest version, then try to start it again..after removing the workspace folder and all connected folders....even then, if you don't find solution...Disable your Firewall and Antivirus...and try, you will find the solution....

    You can also see this video on youtube "How to install Eclipse / android adt plugin ubuntu/kubuntu 11.10"...Or visit this link for this video "ww.youtube.com/watch?v=HCNC34BflOo"...that might help you.

    If running Windows you need to run eclipse as admin, this solved it for me.

    I hate to say me too, but I can't get the adt package to install into eclipse

    message reads :

    Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
    Software being installed: Android Development Tools 16.0.1.v201112150204-238534 (com.android.ide.eclipse.adt.feature.group 16.0.1.v201112150204-238534)

    I'm using dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse on a fedora f16 x86 box
    firewall has been disabled but either way same error message.

    I've also tried downloading and installing as an archive, same results
    This issue is spread across several machines so it's not machine specific.

    I've even tried F16 running in a Vm on vbox. And the obvious uninstall everything, reinstall everything




    any one got a workaround or other ideas?

    Have you read Star123 post?? In the video is te solution for your problem, you just have to install linux tools from update site for your eclipse version and you're set.

    I hope this can help but all the kudos por Star123 who posted the video

    If you are referring to star123's post about reinstalling eclipse and turning off the firewall.

    if you are using ubuntu and have installed eclipse try running

    sudo eclipse

    it will ask for your password

    now add the repository and walla, you are good to go.

    Run Eclipse "as Administrator" Solved trouble in my case (Windows VISTA)

    I can confirm that this simple procedure as mentioned by Plaukit solves the problem - run Eclipse as Administrator (I am using Window 7 home Edition 64bit) and Eclipse Classic
