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.
