ADB or Android Debug Bridge, is a command line utility that let’s us control an android device from the computer itself. It’s part of Google Android SDK & can be used to run shell commands or to copy the files to & from the device & also to install or remove the applications from device.
For Centos 7 / RHEL:
yum install android-tools
sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot
We want to make sure that ADB is now working. First, see to it that your Android device is set up for debugging. On your Android device, go to the Settings > Applications > Development screen and make sure “USB Debugging” is checked.
