If you want to customize your Android device more than simply installing few apps than even my 5 years old brother can do, the first step is to learn what root is. If you are a newbie then I recommend you have a look at these Android root terms to understand it better.
Do you want to go deeper? Then you should learn about ADB and Fastboot. In this article, we are going to share with you a version of ADB and Fastboot with graphical user interface. But before going into the tutorial how to install it, let me write few words what ADB and Fastboot is?
So, ADB which stands for Android Debug Bridge is a communication bridge between the client and the server. Basically, it’s a tool for proper communication between your computer and smartphone. It’s accessed via command prompt on Windows and you can use it to send commands to your Android device from a computer.
Fastboot, it is basically a diagnostic tool used to modify Android file system from a computer. To use fastboot, the device should be in bootloader mode. Fastboot commands are basic and they consist of flashing boot image or bootloader.
It’s easy to find ADB and Fastboot files online but this one we are sharing in this post is a bit different. This is ADB and Fastboot with graphical user interface. Sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it?
