    Ok so I am fairly new to the Android OS (had phone since November), but I am rooted, and all that good stuff. However I have not used ADB for anything, and I want to overclock my CPU now that it has been released to greater than 600 MHz. I read the "How to use adb" thread, and have debugging on and everything, however when I go into "tools" and try to open adb.exe a ms dos screen pops up for a split second and thats it. Any ideas of what I didn't do?

    Lynx,

    you do not run adb in widows by trying to execute the adb.exe file. It is run in a command prompt, in xp, Start, Run, type cmd in the box. If this is giving you issues, you will want to do more searching on adb here to get squared away. ADB is not a GUI program, rather a comand prompt deal.

    One more question, how to I initiate adb? I get running the prompt, but it only shows the promt that I need to run for a mac in the walkthrough not for windows. He mentions windows having .bat files to run it for you.
