Use your tablet/phone as PC for Fastboot and ADB

Android General - xda-developers - forum.xda-developers.com
In this guide i will show you how to use tablet/phone as a computer for adb and fastboot purposes.

With android devices most of people here in xda can't stay away from using Fastboot or adb. I'm changing kernel of my xperia neo frequently. Unlike samsung, in sony, kernels cannot be flashed without fastboot. So I'm using adb and fastboot frequently,

But what happens if u don't own a PC, or of ur PC is not working.

This guide is helpful for people who doesn't have a PC, who are too lazy to turn on their pc , who are outside from the house, etc.

Okay.. Enough talk. Let's get into work.

Requirements :-

* Rooted android Tablet / Phone.

* OTG cable [ Make sure that your device supports OTG. (If not search your device's thread for OTG )]

* A root browser ( eg:- Root Explorer, ES file explorer)

* Terminal emulator

( um not responsible for your bricked device.)

You may think that we can use adb and fastboot binary files for linux in our android devices. No. We can't use them. Because those files are not compiled for ARM. So we can't use them.

Thanks to google we have adb compiled for ARM. This file is already included in some new devices. ( search "adb" in /system/bin or /system/xbin folder. If you have this you don't need to download this again)

Thanks to josteink we have Fastboot binary compiled for ARM. This isn't coming with your device natively.

STEP 1

1. Download adb file **MAIL** <command>

commands:

update <filename> reflash device from update.zip

flashall flash boot + recovery + system

flash <partition> [ <filename> ] write a file to a flash partition

erase <partition> erase a flash partition

getvar <variable> display a bootloader variable

boot <kernel> [ <ramdisk> ] download and boot kernel

flash:raw boot <kernel> [ <ramdisk> ] create bootimage and flash it

devices list all connected devices

continue continue with autoboot

reboot reboot device normally

reboot-bootloader reboot device into bootloader

help show this help message

options:

-w erase userdata and cache

-s <serial number> specify device serial number

-p <product> specify product name

-c <cmdline> override kernel commandline

-i <vendor id> specify a custom USB vendor id

-b <base_addr> specify a custom kernel base address

-n <page size> specify the nand page size. default: 2048

*type

Code:

adb version

If you see some text like this, adb is working.

Code:

u0_a60@grouper:/ $ adb version

Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.31

Tada... You have adb and fastboot in your tablet/phone.

STEP 6

*connect another android device to your device by otg cable. And try out adb and fastboot.

*(use "su" command before using fastboot and adb in terminal. Otherwise fastboot/adb will not function well)

*Report here if adb and fastboot working in your device

Last important STEP

*press thanks button.
