    The syntax is
    Code (Text):
    1. adb devices
    if you leave off 'devices' it will return the command line options as if you've typed '/?' or improperly formed syntax.

    yes, i got that plainly, i just didnt know what folder it was to be looking in, but i found it, and i saw how it just gave me alll the info back...that said, i finally figured out that it just wasnt seeing my phone despite it being in USB debuging and charge only modes, yes before you ask i did open the cmd with admin

    i managed to get it to say

    * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    * daemon started successfully *
    List of devices attached
    ________________ <blank

    i tried the command adb usb and it said error: device not found
    i tried the command connect <host>(computer name)[:<port>]
    everything else i tried just brought up the options... :/ if it helps my phone is a HTC EVO 3D virgin mobile edition... :/

    I would then suggest you don't have the proper drivers installed for your phone, or they didn't install correctly. Just to be sure, you have the HTC Explorer?

    i was thinking that too, and also i guess not cause i never heard of HTC explorer...unless you are talking about the sync, then yes, i do have it

    (also thank you for your time)

    No, HTC Explorer is the phone specific to this forum. What make/model phone are we talking about here? It's important to talk with others who have the same thing be cause there are always subtle differences that can mean the difference between working and not working.

    my phone is the HTC EVO 3D virgin mobile version....its called HTC EVO V 4G, and the model number is PG86100...not sure if thats what you were asking...my HTC Sense version is 3.6, would you like to know the kernel version too? or is that a little over board...(no sarcasm intended)


    edit: lol, i just noticed something on the page, i know what you mean by HTC Explorer...i apologize for seemingly wasting your time -.-

    I've still got my Evo 3D.

    HTC Sync ought to be all you need as far as drivers go.

    What version of Windows, and is it 32 or 64-bit?

    When you connect in Disk Mode, can you see your SD card in the File Explorer?

    ok, i tried the link given, the link at this point in time is broke, i clicked "last page" and they give the link for this place and it mentions a ADB mod of some sort...um i hate to make things more difficult but im not into modded stuff...not really, i cant afford to buy a new phone or laptop...yeah i sound dramatic but its how i think...im just trying to be careful cause i dont know what im doing most of the time :/

    ps im not trying to be rude or w/e so, sorry...i appreciate the help though...

    You don't need a modded adb (and that won't affect your phone in any case). You need Win 8 64-bit adb compatible USB drivers. :)

    And if you're not interested in modding things, why do you want to use adb?

    Just for screen shots?

    It's usually used for modding your phone.

    Sorry, I'm happy to help, but I'm confused so let's get me clear on what you're trying to get done.

    im trying to not have to root my phone, i have 3d capability picture taking...(reason got the phone) but it has 1 gig storage by default and its making me very frustrated, im trying to "force" apps onto my SD card, the forum i came for originally was named "Forcing Apps to install to the SD card without root" so thats what im trying to do...alas i am failing because idk what to do.... :/

    edit: i already have screen shot ability :3

    So you're basically trying to get the /data partition (where apps and data go) mapped to the sd card without root based on something you read here about apps2sd or link2sd - got it.

    Let me save you from further frustration - you're not going to be able to do that properly on an Evo 3D without root - I guarantee it. Sorry but there it is.

    That feature sprang up by Eclair in Android, by Gingerbread (what you likely have if you're running Sense 3.6), it was on its way out, with most apps no longer supporting it. If you're on Ice Cream or later you can absolutely forget it.

    That leaves you with legacy solutions from older phones where you remap memory partitions.

    It's not going to work out.

    I've had a number of people tell me over the years that I didn't know what I was talking about and post early "success" stories. Shortly thereafter, they'd come back and say, yeah, it didn't do what I thought, now my phone's messed up.

    If you think I'm wrong, or trust someone saying that this will work, then you need to search out Windows 8 64-bit adb USB drivers for an HTC - that's all you probably need.

    And don't take this the wrong way - I'm not going to be able to help further. I know where this ends up.

    Sorry. :(

    *sigh* thats what i was afraid of, why cant manufactures put more storage and app builders make it possible to use that little button "move to SD" the PROPER way, yes i know that if its on the phone its faster runs smoother etc etc but...well...you know...

    edit: PS thank you for your time

    No worries, glad I could spare you further pain.

    This was their top series phone in 2011.

    Newer phones have what you need - more storage. Of course, they don't exactly give those away but at least they're improving.

    the problem with buying from a place like VM they give you phones with bad storage amount...i can go to the store and buy a 2 gig drive for like $5...if that...i know its hard to get such a big device in such a small space :rolleyes:, not to mention not make it any more expensive than it needs to be, both phones ive gotten from them...1 gig each -.-...soon as i get some money flow imma join my parents plan and do alot of research....the official HTC EVO 3D supposedly has 4 gigs...guerrilla glass...those 2 things sold me...get the crap one from VM and you get 1 gig...and im not testing the other, but i have dropped it a couple times :argh:

    You have 4 GB in your phone.

    The rest is reserved for the system.

    The VM Evo V is the same exact hardware as the Sprint Evo 3D.

    In 2010, the top HTC had 1 GB total, and only 425 MB for users.

    In 2011, the 3D more than doubled user storage.

    You should have closer to 2 GB for apps...

    You can get Terminal Emulator, and run one command -

    df

    To see what you have and where it's used.

    I'll leave the picture, and thanks for the upload. :)

    Yeah, my mistake, I had it right the first time - 1 GB for apps (mine is charging right now).

    If you add up the partitions, you'll get about 4 GB (the difference is rounding error on df).

    Hope that helps.

    yeah i guess it helps but ugh! lol they need like over 9000 TB storage on these things! XD yes...dramatic but still id rather it be impossible to fill the memory by the time i need a new phone than to suffer trying to get something i want on it...i know i can factory reset...but that stinks...alot of backing up for some things...and other things like "google play services" taking up a huge 75mb and google play store taking up 16 mb....and then there is facebook bloatware 42 mb...not including cache..(i delete that often)...

    I think that I'm not far off if I say that the vast majority of us around here agree with you.
