    After reading EarlyMon's post about installing Linux on the Evo 3D, I wanted to try it out. I clicked on the guide, and found out I need to have the Android SDK. I have tried in the past to install the Android SDK. But every time I download the .exe file from the official site, it tells me I don't have a JDK. That's a lie. I have gone to oracle several times and downloaded and installed two different versions of the Java's JDK. I go through the installation and it tells me it was successful. But when I go to the SDK to install, it says I still don't have it.

    Before you ask, I know that I am downloading the correct JDK for my chipset (x64). I have no idea what's going wrong, but I would really like to know how to get the SDK working so I can begin developing on this app idea I have.

    Are you able to verify that Java is installed and working?

    Verify Java Version

    I recall some difficulty installing it correctly for the SDK, but it was last year so I don't remember the exact problem.

    Don't know if something as simple as this will work for you but it has worked for me on a couple of laptops I installed SDK on. Anyway I was in the same situation as you, I knew for a fact that JDK was installed but during the installation of SDK it absolutely refused to detect that JDK was already installed. Now I don't know if there was some kind of bug in the installation process but all I did was once it said that I have to install JDK I would hit the back button to go back one step in the SDK process then proceed again and it detected it and it then completed the installation. I have had this happen to me like 3 times this past weekend.

    I ran that, and it only said I have Java 6, update 26. Said nothing about having JDK installed.

    EDIT - for crying out loud - this won't work either.

    (Did a test run on Windows machine for you.)

    ~~~~~~~ignore




    If you're not an actual Android developer, you don't need all of the SDK, just the basics.

    IOW - to push out files, you really don't need all of the fol-de-rol, just a working adb.

    Try installing the zip instead - Android SDK | Android Developers

    Under the tools folder, read adb-has-moved.txt

    Jump to Step 4 - Installing the SDK | Android Developers

    Get the platform-tools by running the .exe included in the zip.

    Follow your nose and the txt file - find adb - you're now good to go. Use from a DOS window.

    BTW - double-click on the tools/ddms.bat will give you your screen-shot tool if I'm not mistaken (don't run Windows).

    Once upon a time, guys would make little zip files of just the essentials for adb, good for Win/Mac/Linux, and post those on the web, but I couldn't find one quickly.

    OK, I guess you need to check out my ignored part, above so you can be sure to snag adb.

    Once upon a time, adb was included in a single SDK download, it's now a tortured process to get with more and more and more downloading. :mad:

    FWIW - here's a guy just offering adb as part of a simple solution - use at risk, virus-scan first - but I started rooting with a mini-package and didn't get into the SDK until later.

    It's just adb, not rocket surgery.

    Well, isn't that just the straw that broke your chickens before you came to it.

    What good are metaphors if they don't blend?

    I've never been a big fan of blended metaphors. I much prefer the single malt variety ;)
