    So let's be honest--I have no clue what I'm doing. I've programmed in Linux quite a bit so the commands look familiar but... I can't even get adb to work, much less actually execute the commands. I'm trying to use this particular set of instructions, http://androidforums.com/behold-2-a...t-galaxy-behold-2-123-install-done-right.html.

    Yes, USB debugging is on. Yes, I've installed the drivers from the SDK (or at least I tried, and I think it worked). But whenever I input "adb devices" it shows no devices connected, and when I input "adb shell" it says "error: device not found." I have tried adb kill-server, no change. I tried the whole F8-disable-driver-signing thing, no dice. I have changed environment variables and gone as far as I can but nothing else seems to help. Here are some screenshots to demonstrate the problem:

    and the device manager:

    I've read of people having better luck running adb on Linux, and I can make that happen although I'd really rather not. Currently I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit edition. Nothing I've tried has gotten adb to recognize my phone.

    I'm not dumb at computers, but I'm dumb at this 'cause I've never done it before. If there's anything I can provide to help diagnose and fix this, or if I'm being completely stupid and making a rookie mistake, please let me know. TouchWiz is killing me dead, y'all.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Since you're running Win7 PRO (versus Home Premium(, you have access to download and install Windows XP Mode. Install this and start your XP Mode virtual machine and install all your USB drivers, ADB, etc in this virtual machine. You will need to "capture" your USB device to use it in your virtual machine - there's a menu option to do this, but I don't have my virtual machine running to spell out exactly what the menu option is called.

    When you boot up your computer press F8 and turn off driver enforcement. That is your problem.
