Rooting Problem - adb is not recognized

    I have been trying to root my Evo 4g all night, but no websites seem to work...

    I am following this tutorial: [GUIDE] How to root Android 2.2 on the EVO 4G Outdated - xda-developers and it says to put these commands into the command line:
    When I typed in the first line, the cmd is saying: "'adb' is not recognized as an internal, or external command"

    This is really annoying me, how do I get around this...

    I'd use the Rooting For Dummies thread in this forum personally. Espcecially cause that XDA thread says "Outdated" in the title.

    I agree, that is an outdated method. Read this:

    If you have a newer Evo, you can't use unrevoked. There is a more difficult method available until unrevoked gets an update.

    [ROOT][GUIDE] HBoot 2.02/2.10 SOFF - The Savior Edition - Upd. 12.26.10 - xda-developers

    I would *not* recommend this method if you don't understand everything in it. I mean this as no insult at all, but it doesn't sound like you're ready for it.

    I suggest you read up on how to use adb. I'm going to guess you don't have the android sdk or don't have it set up right. Here's a pretty good guide on it:

    [GUIDE] ADB Workshop and Guide for everyone - xda-developers

    My phone can't even be rooted.

    That sucks.

    How come your saying that? Is your Evo the newer kind of Evos?

    Did you follow the instructions to verify your hboot version?
