  1. I have 4 .exe files. I don’t have a file just name exe. the files are adb.exe fastboot.exe py_cmd.exe and w9xpopen.exe WHAT DO I DO!? PLEASE HELP!!

  2. What does py_cmd.exe do? I obtained the minimal package via forum.xda-developers.com, since the mirror site doesn’t require me to install Flashplayer Pro, like ZippyShare does. But the package I found doesn’t have py_cmd.exe.

    • Hi John,

      Please open the download link and click on the big Download Now button (in orange). You might have clicked on any advertisement which asked you to install FlashPlayer Pro. If you click on the download now button an .exe file will be downloaded which is the setup file of minimal adb and fastboot tools.

      py_cmd.exe will open the command prompt using which you can execute commands on your android device. If you are having any other problems let us know. You can also get in touch with us using our Faceboook Page.

      Thank You.
