Default [Q] I cannot get windows to recognize the m8 and can't unlock

HTC sync doesn't help.
I am so frustrated. I cannot run fastboot commands to get my token because no devices are found.

Any suggestions for this?

Have you made sure that you have the latest Fastboot available? I always check using the Android SDK Manager before attempting anything with a new device.

Unplug the device and reboot it. Then, try again.
If that doesn't work, try a different USB port (preferably one that is on the motherboard itself).

Also, you can try removing HTC Sync. You can always reinstall it after.

This, HTC sync is good for syncing but tends to interfere with adb commands and stuff like that, most instructions tell you to remove it because of this.

Thanks.

I had to reboot my pc everytime the phone went into a different mode almost. System to bootloader to system. Windows 7! Finally got it rooted. It was so simple with the toolkit bit such a hassle since my pc didn't like the phone apparently.

Now to lurk in the threads here for mods and roms.

I've had similar issues with ADB and Fastboot not recognizing my phones after plugging them in. Usually a reboot of the phone and killing/restarting the service fixes the issue.

Glad you have it working now though.
