[HOWTO] Linux ADB, fastboot, mass storage by sado1

1. Download and unpack somewhere Linux SDK: Android SDK | Android Developers

2.Download fastboot: http://android-dls.com/files/linux/fastboot and adb: http://floe.butterbrot.org/external/adb.gz.
Copy adb&fastboot to the sdk/tools folder; cd to that folder in terminal and add necessary permissions:

chmod +x adb
chmod +x fastboot

3. In folder /etc/udev/rules.d/ create files(don’t forget to replace user with your username!):

SUBSYSTEM==”usb”, SYSFS{idVendor}==”18d1″, MODE=”0666″, OWNER=”user”


SUBSYSTEM==”usb”, SYSFS{idVendor}==”04e8″, MODE=”0666″, OWNER=”user”

4. Refresh udev rules:

reload udev

5. In file /home/user/.bashrc (replace user with your username) add line:

export PATH=${PATH}:/home/user/android-sdk-linux_x86/tools

Replace /home/user/android-sdk-linux_x86/tools with your sdk/tools directory path.

6. Log out&in to the terminal/start new terminal window if in X. Everything should work now.
