Have you tried the legacy copy of flashtool (6.7.0) I tried it & it works perfectly

Also, are you on 64bit or 32bit linux?

You need to:
chmod a+x x10flasher_lib/linjre31/bin/java
In the terminal in the folder you were in

I think I'm getting somewhere. I can open Flashtool now.
Now I can't open the SDK manager, even I've had it open before. Java not found. I think I already downloaded what I needed to though (I have the fastboot and ADB files).

More problems: using lsusb, the output is the same when in fastboot and flash modes.

I already have the 99-android.rules file, with: SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="add", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0fce", SYSFS{idProduct}=="*", MODE="0777"

What do I do with: SUBSYSTEMS==”usb”, ATTRS{idVendor}==”0fce″, ATTRS{idProduct}==”aaaa″, MODE=”0666″ ...etc...?

Overwite what I already have or add to it?

Just noticed something (SYSFS{idProduct}=="*"); do I need to replace the * with something?

The "aaaa" was a bogus chain, you need to read the one which is displayed by lsusb . In my case it's 615d in normal mode. If the flash and Fastboot modes give you the same output, that's no problem, just use the chain they give you.

The asterisk thing could mean that that rule is valid for any product ID, but I've never used it so I sticked to my known method.

Yeah, I changed the aaaa, etc, bits. I get "adde" for fastboot and flash modes, and in Flashtool it says I'm in flash mode when I'm in fastboot mode (light is blue).

Now that i check out, I'm puzzled about the product id thing. I can confirm adde is the Flash mode code, but let me check the Fastboot one and I'll tell you. One minute.

*edit* in fact, I have the rules laid out with the asterisk, just like you. My mode is 0666 though, not 0777.

It was a while ago and can't remember exactly, but when I did this it gave me pages upon pages of text, ending in permission denied. I had to close the terminal and start another one to do anything again.
