    from command prompt in windows you type the command

    cd c:\android\tools.. or change that to where you have yours saved

    then you should be able to use adb shell

    have you downloaded the android sdk? you have to have that downloaded onto windows first, then you will have an adb tools directory on your system.

    King,

    There is an easier way to deal with moving the files, if you are willing to spend the pennies on the Root Explorer app. You can bypass adb by using the pc and generic mount process like you use for moving music or images to the sd card. Mount the sd card by toggling the mount switch on the phone when you plug into your usb on the pc. Move the bootanimation.zip to the sd card root with your windows cut/paste. Unmount the phone from the PC. Using Root Explorer, move or copy paste from sd card to /data/local. Done.

    And in general Root Explorer is a very powerful tool that lets you do things without doing or understanding the Linux in adb or Busybox or your phones native Linux commands.

    This is weird, I was trying to use it also but the only "adb" I have in my tools directory is a Unix Executable (I'm on a mac). I thought I installed the SDK correctly as I am able to take screenshots (well atleast I tried to following the directions on Googles setup page). can you only access it when your droid's plugged in? Does it need to be rooted?

    @ JonKyu and KING do this:

    1. copy the entire folder where your tools is located (eg. android/tools you would copy the android folder)
    2. paste it into your C:\ drive
    3. Open command prompt (run > cmd > enter) and type this
    cd \android\tools (this should give you a command prompt of C:\android\tools>)
    4. now type in adb. You should get a list of all adb commands. (if so then sdk is up and running and you are "CD'd" to the tools directory)
    5. Now do whatever it is you are trying to do.

    NOTE: I dont believe you need a rooted phone to do push/pull commands (i could be wrong) BUT you will need to be rooted in order to run adb shell 'SU'

    And remember, on the phone USB Debugging mode on, and the sd card not Mounted by your pc.

    What do you mean? I have no clue what to tell you unless I know what you are trying to do. The whole point of this thread was being able to cd to the tools directory, and therefore, is what I wrote steps for. Once you have control with adb, whatever you do with it is your choice.

    Is there any links anyone can provide with some different commands for certain programs or even a way to figure out what type in for a certain app. Like is there a name in application that I could use to erase the application?

    Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    I am confused as to what you are asking, are you asking for a list of adb commands? If so, cd to the tools directory, and type
    Code:
    adb help
    It will list most (all?) commands and give an idea of how they work and what they do.

    I assume you mean can you delete things from adb, and the answer is yes. You can uninstall using adb, or you can delete files. Be careful what you delete though, some files may not seem important to you, but could break functionality of the phone.
