    so i used this video to help me get sdk installed.

    everything works fine,but following the advice given at the end,i moved everything in "platform tools" to the "tools" directly.

    its fine,it works,but there is just a crap ton of stuff in there and its a little confusing if i want to go in and delete the files i added for a particular project(for example,there were several files i needed for the TB root that i dint want to hang out in there afterward).

    wondering if i could move a bunch of things that ill prolly never use back into platform tools to clean it up some? if so what do i need to keep in the tools directory?

    any other tips or coments or personal preferences are more than welcome :)

    It only annoys me that they separated the ddms.bat utility from adb.exe...

    I type pretty fast so its not too much of a big deal to pop-up and down a directory when I need one or the other (and I'm too lazy to change the system PATH setting :D).

    Just put both tools/ and platform_tools/ in your PATH, and then there will be no need to pollute either directory with flashables - then just run those commands from whatever folder you want.

    thanks eu1. so i could i make a folder and call it "flashables"(or something to that affect) and drop whatever files i need to into that?

    when i start up,i simply change directories to that folder by:
    cd c:\android-sdk-windows\flashables instead of cd c:\android-sdk-windows\tools ?

    Doesn't even need to be in a common sub-folder; so for instance,


    That's the whole point of using PATH - so that programs you frequently use can be invoked from any directory using the short name (rather than typing out the full pathname) of the executable program.
