Install applications to Android phone from computer…

Heya friends…
Im going to briefly stste the process of installing apps to your android phone from your pc/lappy.
First check you have java runtime installed and then JAVA SDK.you can download them at
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html
I had the 1.7 old version and it worked for me fine
Next download the “Android sdk” from
http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
install the recommend version at say c:/android/sdk.now this is going to cause a problem as it will not find java sdk installed on your machine.
you need a small registry hack before installing.

  1. Run regedit.
  2. Find [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit]
  3. Right click on the key and click export, then save the file to the desktop.
  4. Right click then click edit.
  5. Add Wow6432Node to the path of each key in the file.Save.
  6. double click on the registry fine and it will add to registry.
  7. it should look something like this:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit]
    “CurrentVersion”=”1.7”

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\1.7]
    “JavaHome”=”C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk1.7.0”
    “MicroVersion”=”0”

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\1.7.0]
    “JavaHome”=”C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk1.7.0”
    “MicroVersion”=”0”

    now complete the installation.
    now download ADB files from :
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=RTEY0Q97
    unzip them on tools folder under Android/sdk/
    now open command prompt:( you know that right? start->run->type:”command”)
    navigate to android installation folder
    cd \
    cd android\sdk\tools
    type “adb devices” ,that should list your device(CONNECT YOUR DEVICE BEFORE THIS STEP VIA USB!!!!)
    If not then follow this website:

    now find apk files from google:
    trick
    search using filetype:apk

    suppose you want to find tetris,try searching “filetype:apk tetris” download from one of the many links…
    Copy the apk file to tools folder and write
    adb install .apk

    and there you are your installed app works great on your phone!!
    hope you enjoyed this quick guide…

On 8th evening,the western sky looked marvelous…The melodrama of the colors of the sunset couldn’t stop me from gearing out with my camera,to try my new hand on photography.I went p to the terrace,took some beautiful colors with my Nikon D5100 over Hall 8 at IIT kanpur.But there was something strange in some of the photographs when I uploaded them for post production.in some of the photographs,there seemed to have appeared a green dot in the sky,(I didnt notice that while shooting).It probably stayed there for a minute or so(as i checked form my timings in photograph).Strange was the feeling that it could be some “UFO”,but the other possibility is some problem with my camera,but it is quite unlikely with D5100,isnt it?I will post the pictures before the appearance of the dot,and the shots I took while it was there…
