comment ls command works but not with options?
The /? is a Windows/DOS thing. It generally has no meaning under Linux/Unix. If ls on Android provides a help page it's probably ls --help (as it is on a desktop Linux distro).

comment 'adb devices' is not listing my phone
Sorry, I honestly have no idea what you're trying to say with your last comment. Neither question I asked was "Are you sure it's connected?" - I asked if you have USB debugging enabled on your device and if you installed any ADB drivers for your device. You mentioned neither of those things, you only noted that Windows Explorer can see it (which has no relevance to ADB).

comment Cannot add Google accounts on Huawei U8825D/G330D
Sounds like your device doesn't have Google's apps pre-installed. You'd want to take a look at the explanation in How can I install the Google Apps Package (Play Store, …) on my Android device? (which requires rooting the device).

comment HTC Desire won't boot - buzzes 7 times instead
I don't know if this is necessarily the same for the Desire, but in my experience with other HTC phones this is often indicative of a hardware fault that is not going to be fixable. The vibrating is basically a Qualcomm (the system-on-a-chip the phone uses) error code.

comment 'adb devices' is not listing my phone
Browsing the device via Windows Explorer is not related to accessing it over ADB. Do you have USB debugging enabled in your settings? Did you install an ADB driver (or any other drivers) for your device?

comment How do I install a .apk on my Nexus 7 using the browser?
@mbamb19s: That is odd that the downloads tab is empty, although that sort of explains why pointing the browser directly to the apk didn't work either (haven't a clue why all your downloads would be seemingly disappearing, though...)

@StephenSchrauger: I can see why that causes confusion. It does work on my devices (and I presume yours as well), so it's not really clear why it wouldn't be in this case.

@StephenSchrauger: Apparently that wasn't working for the OP (it does work for me). Unless it was downloading and the OP didn't notice it, maybe.
