Name        : android-tools
Product     : Fedora 27
Version     : 20170311gite7195be7725a
Release     : 5.fc27
URL         : http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/tools/
Summary     : Android platform tools(adb, fastboot)
Description :

The Android Debug Bridge (ADB) is used to:

- keep track of all Android devices and emulators instances
  connected to or running on a given host developer machine

- implement various control commands (e.g. "adb shell", "adb pull", etc.)
  for the benefit of clients (command-line users, or helper programs like
  DDMS). These commands are what is called a 'service' in ADB.

Fastboot is used to manipulate the flash partitions of the Android phone.
It can also boot the phone using a kernel image or root filesystem image
which reside on the host machine rather than in the phone flash.
In order to use it, it is important to understand the flash partition
layout for the phone.
The fastboot program works in conjunction with firmware on the phone
to read and write the flash partitions. It needs the same USB device
setup between the host and the target phone as adb.

Update Information:

This update fixes Android devices constantly connecting and disconnecting when
the "adb" daemon has been launched.

  [ 1 ] Bug #1470740 - adb does not reckognize connected devices

This update can be installed with the "dnf" update program. Use
su -c 'dnf upgrade android-tools' at the command line.
