Re jwa11:

You'll find the answer if you look at the PKGBUILD for android-tools ( ).

This package contains all the binaries from Google-released Android SDK Platform Tools, while that package manually compiles a subset of these binaries from AOSP. That package might be sufficient for non Android developers, but for developers this is more like the standard one to install. (Developers can also install Platform Tools within Android Studio, of course.)

What is the use of this package when community already contains a simpler-named and seemingly superior android-tools that adds its adb and fastboot executables to the $PATH? With this package I had to do pacman -Ql android-sdk-platform-tools and then run the files by typing their full paths at my prompt.

Just wondering if this is an oversight?

Are adb commands working for everyone else? When I do adb devices or adb start-server or adb kill-server, the command just sits there doing nothing, and I have to Ctrl+C to break out of it.

@caevaroy That is SDK Tools (aur/android-sdk) instead of SDK Platform Tools.

from looks like there is a newer version 444e22ce8ca0f67353bda4b85175ed3731cae3ffa695ca18119cbacef1c1bea0

Because sha1sum is used by upstream (Google) (See, and other Android SDK packages on AUR are also using it.

Also quoting Arch Wiki (

Why did you downgrade to sha1sums?

Sorry, it's a typo. Fixed now.
