Hi,

I just unlocked my bootloader with v8 on the latest OTA update. I rebooted into the bootloader, and ”fastboot devices" returned mine just fine. Then I ran "fastboot -i 0x05B0 flash recovery twrp.blob" with the latest 2.6.3.2 version, but it has been about 10 minutes and nothing has happened, just the cursor flashing below the command as if it's doing something.

How long does this normally take? Should I interrupt it if it's abnormal? What should I do from here?

Thanks!

Flashing the recovery takes only a few seconds - press Ctrl+C to abort. You mistyped the -i parameter - it's 0x0b05, not 0x05b0. If "fastboot devices" returns a proper serial number instead of "???????", you may also omit the parameter completely ("fastboot flash recovery ...").

Thanks, I actually typed it correctly in the command prompt. Fastboot.exe ended up crashing in windows (which I have used multiple times for other devices...). I restarted windows, downloaded the ”minimal adb and fastboot" tool, tried again with that one, and it worked.

Thanks for the tip about the -i and your prompt, helpful reply!

Ahhh! I sense the chance for another lesson!!
I have always wondered about this: When do you need to use the -i 0x0b05 parameter and when not - and why?
And yes - I did google it and didn't find an answer
