Default [Q] lsusb not listing phone in download mode

Hi Everyone,

I am using a Samsung Galaxy S3, and unfortunately I broke my volume up key so I cannot get the phone into recovery mode.

I can, however, get into download mode. Unfortunately, when I run lsusb, the phone is not listed.

What can I do here?

Are you running Ubuntu? If so what version? I think 11.04 was the last version of Ubuntu that made connecting to the gs3 as easy as plugging it in. Now you need to jump through a couple hoops to connect. That is one of many reasons I moved to arch Linux. I should add you need to jump though hoops on arch as well but at least they don't claim to be user friendly and I like being on the bleeding edge.
ADB Only (Windows)
ADB Only (Linux) <-- Plus instructions

I'm running Slackware but the problem was simply that the USB port I was plugged into is not working. As soon as I switched to another port, everything worked OK.

Now i have another problem - whenever I try to install a ROM that is d2lte it fails. I can install d2vzw just fine, but these are missing gapp. I tried to install gapp in order to update TWRP, but that's not working because all the gapps are for d2lte.

Nevermind, I completely missed the dd write method for installing TWRP. That was painless. Now I will install a good ROM for my needs. Thanks.
