    Do I need to root my phone to install apps with ADB? I think I followed all of the tutorials online for setting up ADB right, but when I try to install an app, it says "access denied" or something. Do I need root to get this to work, or am I doing something else wrong? Thanks!

    Well, I finally figured it out, and you don't need root. Maybe this will help out someone that was confused as I, otherwise, this thread can be deleted.
