I have rooted several separate photons and did not encounter issues. did u read the "read me" included in the AIO files?

Also, make sure that USB port recognizes the phone, maybe try a different USB that is directly connected to the motherboards header.

Possible the debugging or charge only mod not selected?

Best of luck.

I did everything in the readme file. it recognizes the phone and restarts it, but when it gets to "hackin yo ****" that's when it says device not found.

Always make sure you have a good USB cord, it may seem good but give connection one time and lose it the next. Have had that happen with even the one that comes with a phone.

There have been several reports of terminal emulator failing to root photon torpedo on 2.35. Try this variation:
