Running "adb" on LG-P925g USB Debugging Interface

This section provides a tutorial example on how to run 'adb' commands on LG-P925g Android phone through the USB debugging interface. 'adb -d' is to run commands on the USB device. 'adb -e' is to run commands on the emulator.

With my LG-P925g Android phone connected in USB debugging mode, I can try some Android SDK debugging tools on my Windows computer now.

The first I want to try is the ADB (Android Debugging Bridge) tool:

C:\herong>\local\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools\adb devices
