How to Install ADB And Fastboot on Arch Manjaro Linux Easily

install adb and fastboot on arch linux

ADB and Fastboot are part of the Android SDK. When you install Android Studio both of them are installed. But they are not always used altogether with Android Studio. They are both handy and powerful tool to perform many advanced tasks on Android OS using a desktop.

There was a time if you needed ADB or Fastboot only, you had to install the huge package of Android SDK itself. But a long time ago Google started making these tools available in standalone packages. Meaning you don't need the whole SDK just to install and use these tools. So, I will be guiding you on how you can install ADB and Fastboot on your Arch or Manjaro system.

Installing ADB and Fastboot are essentially easy on Windows and even on Linux distribution. You just need is know the name of the package form which the tools will be installed. I have already provided a guide on how to install these tools on Debian based Linux distributions. It's easy as that to install on Arch or Manjaro.

Steps To Install ADB And Fastboot on Arch or Manjaro 

  1. Before installing ADB and fastboot make sure your system is up to date by running the following command as root on your terminal.
    sudo pacman -Syyu
  2. After updating your system again,
    sudo pacman -S android-tools
  3. When asked hit enter to yes
  4. And you are done.
Now check if it is installed correctly or not by ADB command and Fastboot command on your terminal. You should get something like this.
