Thank you so much for replying. I'm not sure what has happened. Since I first flashed Philz Recovery via fastboot (I have since flashed the update two days ago) I have not been able to see my device with ADB in recovery. I try adb devices and get nothing.
If anyone has any suggestions or guidance I welcome it, otherwise I guess I got ot dig into why I only see my device via adb when booted.
Guess I had to go back to basics/beginning I think there is a driver conflict on this PC. Lost a HDD and haven't tried to use adb in recovery with it since. So looks like it's likely coincidence on the adb issues and the flashing tried a different device and have a different results. Google drivers weren't being recognized.
