getting a little frustrating and would appreciate some help
I believe I have successfully unlocked the bootloader - I see an unlocked padlock icon with the black google bootup splash screen, though there is no mention of any "lock status" in the boot-up screen (vol-power startup)
I have created the C:root directory with the downloaded superboot files
I have the samsung drivers downloaded to C:samsung
I installed PDAnet on my laptop (Win 7 64) and on Nexus and can USB tether if needed
when I'm in the normal Nexus screen (not bootloader) in the computer's Device Manager I see "Android Phone" with the following driver "SAMSUNG Android ADB Interface"
I first installed the samsung drivers into the C root directory as above then installed PDAnet 64 and "reinstalled" drivers selecting "Samsung", I got two Windows warning asking whether I wanted to install these drivers as windows could not vouch for the safety, I said go ahead and install. PDAnet appears to work and is instaled successfully on phone
I do not see Android 1.0 driver in my Device Manager, why?
When I reboot into the bootloader with the USB plugged in (tried plugging in before and after getting to this screen), my computer does not register the presence of the phone and when I go to the CMD prompt it is <waiting for device> and nothing happens.
If I startup by pushing power button from the bootloader then the phone is once again recognized when it boots up normally, see above
WHY will the computer not recognize the phone after powering off and rebooting into the bootloader? I thought I did everything correctly but I cannot get the final root installation files (install-superboot-windows) to work until the phone is recognized.
Thanks for your help
I'm a mac user, so I'm unfortunately uncomfortable rooting on PCs. Do the methods of unlocking and rooting listed in the OP work on Windows XP? That's all I got.
unlocked and rooted and ready to go!! i had to reinstall the PDA thing on the phone twice to get it to work. to do that seach pda and you will see reinstall pdanet on device....after that everything went smooth
Nexus 7 2 4.3 PA
Unlocked and ROM'ed Note 3!!!!!
I'm getting frustrated... I can't get past waiting for device and I've tried everything I could in this thread. I've reinstalled the drivers several times. Followed all instructions. But it still says that it can't find the drivers when I try to update android 1.0. Any suggestions? And I'm using 32 bit Xp and this computers a POS, if that helps. I'm starting to think I may just need to find a computer that doesn't suck, since I've had a lot of problems just to get here.
