Android – Can’t Find my ADB

Just installed the new Android SDK - 2.3 and wondering where's "ADB"? Don't worry it's there.

In there recent release of the Android 2.3 codenamed "Gingerbread" the SDK's directory was a little restructured. In particular the ADB (Android debug bridge) the tool that is used to communicate with the Android emulator instances and connected device has been moved. Previously you could find it in the

path_to_your_Android_SDK_installation/tools

folder.

But since the Android 2.3 (or API 9) the /tools folder was renamed to /platform-tools folder, so if you are wondering why suddenly your >adb command does not work - this is the reason and updating the PATH should fix it.
