Default [Q] ADB problems with the Nexus 5 from T-Mobile on Ubuntu 12.04

Thanks in advance for any help! I'm pretty stuck here, I'm only in the early stages of learing Linux and Android modding, so I apologize for any ignorance I show.

My final goal is to relock the bootloader and put the phone back to factory settings. I haven't installed any custom ROMs on this one, still running the stock ROM and bootloader.

I'm trying to sort out ADB in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, with the android SDK. So far I've tried the instructions here:

http://http://forum.xda-developers.c....php?t=2423515

and added the rules file to /etc/udev/rules.d/99-android.rules as follows:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="18d1", ATTR{idProduct}=="4ee0", MODE="0666", OWNER="ldra02"

and rebooted my computer. No luck, what results is the same each time, ./adb devices lists no devices, not even an unknown. I even tried running the adb server in sudo, as one person suggested.

Any help is greatly appreciated! And again, sorry for my lack of knowledge.

Do you have debugging turned on on the device?

You don't use adb to lock the bootloader. You use fastboot. adb won't work if you're in fastboot mode
