Android Simulator/Emulator: Delete directory

One thing maybe (or maybe not) you’ve noticed is that you can’t delete an entire directory using DDMS on eclipse.

To be able to delete a directory on simulator sd card you can use the ADB command and connect to device via shell.

The first thing to do, is to go to “<android-sdk-PATH>/platform-tools” and from there type:

./adb devices

Then connect via shell to the device that you want:

./adb -s emulator-5554 shell

Now you’ve connected to the device “emulator-5554″  and now you can remove the files or directories that you want!
