No OS- ADB wont work, and no recovery- Stuck :(
Hello everyone, been a while since I have been on this site.
I am in a dilemma which I hope you guys can help me with.
I have a samsung galaxy nexus, and I just wiped the phone. But there is no recovery, so I have no OS atm.I have tried the Android Toolkit, however, everytime I try using it I get problems. It says , " waiting for adb mode" . I downloaded SDK and have runned the adb.exe file, but a command prompt pops up, and a bunch of stuff pops up and scrolls down, and then it closes. It does nothing.
I have read that my drivers for ADB are not installed properly or whatever. So I tried uninstalling them from " device manager" and I tried reinstalling them. That didnt work. I tried uninstalling again and than downloaded a samsung galaxy nexus usb adb driver, which also did not work.
I just want to be able to place a ROM on my phone from the computer. If I can get that far, I can install it from recovery mode. But I cant even get it fully detected on my computer. Whenever I plug in the USB, it detects it, but drivers fail.
Also, in device manager, the universal serial bus controller, SM bus controller, and ethernet controller all have a yellow triangle over them. They always fail to install..
I have tried updating them from the device manager. But that has failed aswell..
Please someone help me. I am at a dead end and unsure what to do.
