    Is that where you installed it?

    Usually a command prompt opens in the users default folder (on XP c:\Documents and Settings\<username> on Vista or 7 c:\users\<username>

    Don't forget, you must type "cd" in front of android-sdk_r07-windows\android-sdk-windows\tools or it will try to launch tools instead of changing to the tools directory

    Here's a command prompt tip ... type cd plus the first few letters of the directory you wish to change to and then hit the tab key, if there is a match it will fill in the rest. If there is more than one match continue to hit the tab key and it will cycle the selections.

    Where exactly did you install the Android SDK? The command you are typing is rudimentary command line directory management. You should be able to find the tools folder. Are you on Windows XP, 7 or Vista?

    Perform a search of your hard drive for "adb.exe" and when you locate it, it should be in the tools folder. Make a note of the complete path. I am going to assume it will find it on drive c:, if it's on a different drive substitute that drive letter in the commands below.

    Then open your command prompt (cmd) and type

    Code (Text):
    1. cd c:\
    This will put you in the root directory of your system hard drive. Next type

    cd [complete path noted above ending in "\tools\"] example:

    Code (Text):
    1. cd users\myaccount\desktop\android-sdk-windows\tools\
    You should see a prompt that looks like this:

    Code (Text):
    1. c:\Users\myaccount\Desktop\android-sdk-windows\tools\>
    That should answer your question.

    I don't want to appear condescending but I am concerned that if you do not understand basic folder structure, whether you should be attempting to install this update especially since the backflip is an older, underpowered device never intended to receive FroYo. You run a serious risk of rendering your phone inoperable.
