What You Need for This Project

Task 2: Download and Import a Linux Virtual Machine

Mac M1, M2, or M3 Users

You need to download an ARM64 version of Debian instead of the prebuilt machines referenced below.

You can get the ISO here:

Download the VMWare image for the latest version of Debian 12 from https://www.linuxvmimages.com/images/debian-12/.

Unzip the file. A folder is created with several files, including an .ovf file.

Open VMware. From the menu bar, click File, Import. Import the .ovf file.

Launch your Linux machine.

Log in with the username debian and a password of debian

Installing Android Debug Bridge

On your Debian machine, at the top left of the desktop, click Activities and search for Terminal.

In the Terminal, execute these commands:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install android-tools-adb -y

M 111.1: adb Version (15 pts)
