Default error

error: device not found...

why do I get this error? I mean adb works fine for me when the device is on. I come to recover through
Code:
adb reboot recovery
when i select update from adb and write the command it just doesn't recognize it...

btw I have unlocked boot and I am root

thanks in advance.

EDIT: It was a problem whit the drivers, some drivers where missing no adb or fastboot drivers, i guess something related with usb drivers

I'm bumping this for the upcoming 4.2.2 OTA.

OP, you should update this for 4.2.2

EDIT: You can also rename the .zip to make it easier to type the command. i.e. update.zip

Updated for 4.2.2 with link. Remember you must be on 4.2.1 (JOP40D).

Hi,

I'm on 4.2.1 (bootloader is open and rooted) - If I'm running this procedure the root will remain? the phone will be erased? what are the consequences?

Sorry but I didn't see any mention if the phone is coming back as a factory default.
I can assume that the root will dissappear.
