    okay im not quite sure whats wrong, but i am going though the process of fixing my moms wifi on her droid because i added an OCing kernal to her droid and when i went to cmd for the first time this error came up

    C:\tools adb shell
    error device not found

    Any ideas?
    I have done this same process on my droid and no such error has occurred, is there something i have missed that makes the droid connectible to cmd?

    Make sure that corresponds to the directory where you loaded the adb.

    Device not found means it can't find the Droid. Did you enable Debugging mode?

    Yes I did enable debug mode and I have been able to go into adb shell before. I have no idea what's different because it was worling for me yesterday and now it says I can't find the device

    You had it working so obviously you have the driver installed and everything. First I would try restarting the computer and phone. When you have your phone plugged in and then run "adb devices" dose it show the phone is connected? If not I would maybe turn debugging mode off and on and uninstall the driver on the computer and reinstall it.

    Is the Phone connected via USB cable to the computer?

    I just tried, and it will not run if the phone is not connected.

    Not connected:

    Connected:

    BTW, If you add the directory C:\Tools to your system Path, then it will always be available no matter where you open your CMD prompt from, as seen in my screen shots - in fact, I just run CMD from a run dialog and then type adb shell without having to change directories or anything like that....
