I tried adb flash recovery recovery.img it says waiting for device. I tried 2 different cables and all my usb ports on my computer.
Im at a loss. I can still transfer files from my computer to my device. My computer detects it just none of these commands... god i wish i had an sd card slot... lol
I also tried putting it inot fastboot mode by pressing the power and wolume up / down keys. It goes to the screen and says start. All commands still say waiting for device.
I feel like this is a driver issue but idk why.... i have tried all drivers...........
i have a samsung galaxy nexus l515 verizon cdma.
Are you confusing adb with fastboot, or was "adb flash recovery recovery.img" a typo? Anyway, forget the toolkit. Get adb/fastboot binaries from the 101 & FAQ, and try:
1) booted into Android: adb devices
This should list your device with a number. If the list is empty, adb cannot interface with your gnex.
2) booted into the bootloader: fastboot devices
This should also list your device with a number. If the list is empty, fastboot cannot interface with your gnex.
Note that the adb and the fastboot interface are different. If you installed drivers and got adb running, this does not automatically make fastboot working. Boot into fastboot, connect and use device manager to scout for unknown devices. Update using naked driver if necessary.
