NAME

       adb - Android Debug Bridge

SYNOPSIS

       adb [-d|-e|-s serialNumber] command

DESCRIPTION

       WARNING: This manual might be outdated, please refer to the official documentation.

       Android Debug Bridge (adb) is a versatile command line tool that lets you communicate with
       an emulator instance or connected Android-powered device.  It is a  client-server  program
       that includes three components:

       · A  client,  which sends commands.  The client runs on your development machine.  You can
         invoke a client from a shell by issuing an adb command.  Other  Android  tools  such  as
         DDMS also create adb clients.

       · A  daemon,  which runs commands on a device.  The daemon runs as a background process on
         each emulator or device instance.

       · A server, which manages communication between the client and  the  daemon.   The  server
         runs as a background process on your development machine.

       If there's only one emulator running or only one device connected, the adb command is sent
       to that device by default.  If multiple emulators are running and/or multiple devices  are
       attached,  you  need to use the -d, -e, or -s option to specify the target device to which
       the command should be directed.

OPTIONS

       -a     Directs adb to listen on all interfaces for a connection.

       -d     Directs command to the only connected USB device.  Returns an error  if  more  than
              one USB device is present.

       -e     Directs  command  to  the only running emulator.  Returns an error if more than one
              emulator is running.

       -s specific device
              Directs command to  the  device  or  emulator  with  the  given  serial  number  or
              qualifier.  Overrides ANDROID_SERIAL environment variable.

       -p product name or path
              Simple  product  name  like  sooner,  or  a relative/absolute path to a product out
              directory  like  out/target/product/sooner.   If   -p   is   not   specified,   the
              ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT environment variable is used, which must be an absolute path.

       -H     Name of adb server host (default: localhost)

       -P     Port of adb server (default: 5037)

COMMANDS

       adb devices [-l]
              List all connected devices.  -l will also list device qualifiers.

       adb connect host[:port]
              Connect  to a device via TCP/IP.  Port 5555 is used by default if no port number is
              specified.

       adb disconnect [host[:port]]
              Disconnect from a TCP/IP device.  Port 5555 is used by default if no port number is
              specified.   Using  this  command with no additional arguments will disconnect from
              all connected TCP/IP devices.

   Device commands
       adb push local... remote
              Copy file/dir to device.

       adb pull [-a] remote [local]
              Copy file/dir from device.  -a means copy timestamp and mode.

       adb sync [-l] [directory]
              Copy host->device only if changed.  -l means list but don't copy.

       If directory is not specified, /system, /vendor (if present), /oem (if present) and  /data
       partitions will be updated.

       If it is system, vendor, oem or data, only the corresponding partition is updated.

       adb shell [-e escape] [-n] [-T|-t] [-x] [command]
              Run remote shell command (interactive shell if no command given)

       · -e: Choose escape character, or none; default ~

       · -n: Don't read from stdin

       · -T: Disable PTY allocation

       · -t: Force PTY allocation

       · -x: Disable remote exit codes and stdout/stderr separation

       · localreserved:unix domain socket name

       · localfilesystem:unix domain socket name

       adb reverse –no-rebind remote local

       adb   backup   [-f   file]   [-apk|-noapk]   [-obb|-noobb]   [-shared|-noshared]    [-all]
       [-system|-nosystem] [packages...]
         Write  an  archive  of  the device's data to file.  If no -f option is supplied then the
         data is written to backup.ab in the current directory.

       -apk | -noapk enable/disable backup of the .apks themselves in the archive; the default is
       noapk.

       -obb  |  -noobb  enable/disable  backup  of  any  installed apk expansion (aka .obb) files
       associated with each application; the default is noobb.

       contents; the default is noshared.

       -all means to back up all installed applications.

       -system  |  -nosystem toggles whether -all automatically includes system applications; the
       default is to include system apps.

       packages... is the list of applications to be backed up.  If the -all or -shared flags are
       passed,  then  the package list is optional.  Applications explicitly given on the command
       line will be included even if -nosystem would ordinarily cause them to be omitted.
