Ever wanted to download adb or fastboot without having to download the whole of Android Studio?

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/10

Quotes from [WayBack] Ever wanted to download adb or fastboot without having to download the whole of Android Studio?…but didn’t want to download executables from some… – Elliott Hughes – Google+


These links will always return the adb/fastboot binaries currently shipping with Android Studio. No need to guess what the current version is, or update your own links: just follow these and get the latest binaries, direct from the source.


A package manager is overkill. `wget -O – && unzip -d ~/bin/ && export PATH=”$PATH;~/bin/platform tools”` should let you call `adb devices` and you can add the export to your .bashrc if you want it always available without changing into ~/bin/platform tools.
+Elliott Hughes Any chance we can get something to tell us when it is updated? I know you probably don’t care about bandwitdh, but would be nice to know when updates are pushed.

unzip \
sudo cp platform-tools/adb /usr/bin/adb
sudo cp platform-tools/fastboot /usr/bin/fastboot
