    Look at post #8, above ... that's what you do. Just be in the proper directory, and then open a command prompt.

    Do you get that when you're typing the "cd c:/sdk/tools" command? If so, it likely means that you put the SDK into a different directory then the one suggested in the sample. Check the path of the tools subdirectory of the SDK, and adjust the command accordingly.

    I'm having issues. I notice on the android developer page that is doesn't say anything about being supported on Win7. Anybody running Win7 and it works?

    Here's a straightforward way to do it for the Mac:

    1. Open a Terminal window, and run the following command. (This is assuming you installed the SDK in your Applications folder.) Replace "username" with the correct user name for your machine:

    /Users/username/Applications/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/adb

    You should get a screenful of command syntax in response, which will confirm to you that adb is running and ready to go.

    2. Put the bootanimation.zip file into the same folder that contains the adb file, and then run the following, again changing the username as needed.

    /Users/username/Applications/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local/

    And that should do it!

    I still can't get anything to work right...

    I have usb debugging on and the sd card is NOT mounted. I have sdk installed and can get to the tools folder through cmd. I ran the adb push command with the bootanimation.zip in my tools folder. A bunch of text flew by but nothing changed... now the computer will not recognize my phone as being plugged in without a restart. It does the same thing to me when I run "adb shell" from a cmd prompt, everytime I do anything I have to restart my computer for the phone to be recognized. It will charge but I get no options to mount in the notification bar on my phone.

    so i have all the sdk tools and am in fact using it to tether via proxy. because of internet connection, for some reason i am unable to download the file. i really want the boing animation so i was wondering if there was a way someone could email me the zip? that would be awesome.

    im also going to try to download the zip though my eris internet and pull it off my SD card and try that way. any other ideas would be awesome

    OK, give this a try:

    1. In a fresh Terminal window, begin by entering the following command, again assuming the SDK is in your Applications directory, and again changing the username as needed:

    cd /Users/username/Applications/android-sdk-mac_86/tools/

    2. Now enter the two commands in my previous post.

    Did that do it?
