I am a total noob attempting to root their Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. So far I have successfully unlocked the bootloader, but when I try to install CWM Recovery, I get a perpetual <waiting for device> error.
I am attempting to follow this guide → androidcentral.us/2014/01/root-sony-xperia-z1-compact
- USB debugging is on.
- Bootloader has been unlocked.
- Having unlocked the bootloader, I assume the necessary drivers and fastboot were installed correctly.
- In cmd, I check with fastboot devices for two different directories. Fastboot is recognized in the directory I used for unlocking the bootloader. However, it is not recognized in the directory I am trying to install CWM Recovery from.
Any help would be much appreciated :)
