Someone told me that I needed to learn about Linux to better understand the android platform (or more specifically, ADB) . That lead to something else which led to something else and now I am studying the tutorials to learn JAVA. It turns out that if one wishes to write an application for the android platform, one does it in JAVA. I have Eclipse installed but it is useless in reality, unless I can code in the JAVA language. Luckily, I have experience with Visual Basic from a purely novice point of view. But still, my knowledge of the concepts in Visual Basic for Applications are making it much easier to pick up on JAVA, especially using the notepad to write the code. Once I get the code writing concepts down, I can start using the Eclipse IDE to package test projects. Only problem is that I can not remember what I wanted to know about ADB in the first place. I do not want to learn JAVA or write an application or know how android works, I just can not for the life of me find a tutorial about ADB that gives instructions on the commands and how to use it competently to Flash, Delete, Uninstall, and manipulate what is on my phone. Anyone out there that knows where such a thing exists?
