    i am just getting in to ADB and the question i have is if i push a file to my x using adb does it automatically install and apply or do i push the file then install through clockwork?

    If you're pushing a system app, you need to

    adb remount
    adb push blahblah.apk
    adb reboot

    Upon reboot your app should be installed, usually nothing else needs done.

    adb install only works if the apk is signed and installable in the first place.

    A lot of the time you need to actually push an app to /system, where it doesn't matter if it is signed or not.

    Pretty much everything you could ask has already been answered. Not being snarky, but the forum search usually gives pretty good results :)
