Quick ADB / Fastboot installer for OS X and Linux (minimal_adb_fastboot)
Last updated: 5.9.2016 | adb version: 1.0.36 Revision 8f855a3d9b35-android
Installs the adb and fastboot binaries for OS X and Linux.
Do the following steps:
- Download the zip
- unzip it
- Start the shell script with ./install.sh
There are a few arguments you can use with the script:
- uninstall : Deletes the adb and fastboot binaries from /usr/local/bin
- uninstall-old: For OS X users who installed adb from this script with version <3.0. If you used my script version <3.0 on your mac, you should run this command once to remove the binaries from /usr/bin (they are now installed in /usr/local/bin).
- adb : Installs the adb binary only
- fastboot : Installs the fastboot binary only The arguments can be used like this: ./install.sh [argument] eg ./install.sh uninstall An empty argument does the full installation of both binaries.
