Default ADB Offline and no access to bootloader

A few days ago I've tried using ADB but it said my device is offline. Earlier I tried ADB over network. Again, it said my phone is offline. So I wanted to see if I can get ADB access from the bootloader. Surprize: I can't get into the bootloader. If I turn my phone off and press Volume Down + Power, it just boots.

Now, my phone is working good, I just wanted adb access to do that darn EFS backup. And what's up with that "can't get into bootloader" stuff? I did it fine and dandy when I rooted my phone..

EDIT: well, since I can not do the backup the normal way, I just downloaded the efs folder as a zip. and dev/block/. Is it as effective as the normal way?

It is Vol-Up + Power for bootloader. And you can't have adb access in bootloader mode. Only fastboot access.
If I helped you, please give thanks

Ok but why isn't adb working? Why does it always say it's offline?

It could be that you installed some software/driver that overrides a working USB driver.

Try install Google USB driver from Android SDK Tools.
  1. Install Android SDK Tools
  2. When SDK Manager runs, select Google USB Driver, see attached pic
  3. If missed, run SDK Manager again as Administrator

Also, make sure you turn on Developer options and "check" Andoid (USB) debugging option in Developer options setup.

Do you have the Samsung Galaxy Nexus ADB interface showing in your device manager?

Try uninstall and reload again.

just tested at work and it says "device" instead of "offline" which is good I think. The only difference is that at work I installed the SDK long after I got it at home and it has a slightly different folder structure and it also comes with eclipse.

Resolved. Downloaded the new SDK with ADT from the android site and it works. Please forgive me for posting so many times. Can someone please delete this thread?
