Use Android Debug Bridge (adb) from the terminal

Today I was switching back to Android from FirefoxOS on my Revolution (Geeksphone) just to try it. To do so I needed adb which is part of the Android SDK.

To install ADB you need to download the SDK and then extract the zip. Move the folder to a logical place, I put it in my local folder under android.

Then open your .bashrc or .zshrc file and add:
export PATH=/Users/[YOUR_USER]/android/sdk/platform-tools:$PATH
Open a new tab or write source .bashrc in the terminal and your all set to use adb in the terminal.

Which for me was adb sideload to update my phone to android.
