  2. Download tar.gz package & extract it.
  3. In terminal
    cd /home/user/extracted_folder/android-sdk-linux_x86/tools
  4. Download all necessary packages by clicking on “Available packages” and checking “Android Repository”. Then click on “install selected” button and another window will pop up. Check “accept all” and click on “install” button. Wait and you will have all SDK packages installed,adb too.
    sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/99-android.rules
  5. Then paste following in it.
    SUBSYSTEM==”usb”, SYSFS{idVendor}==”1d91″, MODE=”0666″Save & Exit.For ubuntu 11.04,paste this.(i m not sure of this but found in more then 2 guides)
    SUBSYSTEMS==”usb”, ATTRS{idVendor}==”1d91″ TEST==”/var/run/ConsoleKit/database”, RUN+=”udev-acl –action=$env{action} –device=$env{DEVNAME}”
  6. Save & exit.
    sudo chmod a+rx /etc/udev/rules.d/99-android.rules
    sudo service udev restart
    sudo gedit .bashrc
  7. At the end paste this-
    export PATH=${PATH}:/home/YOUR-USERNAME/android-sdk-linux_x86/platform-tools
    (this may change according to your android-sdk directory)(Upto this point credit goes to xda developer ciaox,here is link to his tutorial,
