Smile [Q] What to do when device is not detected by the usual programs?

I've got an Android based device that is detected by Windows, when I give it a driver it correctly shows in the System Manager.

However, none of the usual programs to root the device are detecting it.

What should the next course of action be to root a device that is not detected by these programs?

Thank you,


SR

Yes I have,

Windows detects the device as an exclamation, I've fed windows different drivers that allow the device to be detected as a Android Device, I can transfer files to the memory card on the device, however when it comes to trying to use a program such as Tasselhof - Root, or 1 click root the programs indicate it is not detected.

Would I be better off with Linux instead of Windows to try and attempt this?

Thanks you for your reply,

Hiya.

Same issue. I have both a SGS2 and SGS3. Laptop has three USB ports and I have two cables.

I have installed the Samsing drivers and enabled debugging on both phones.

Odin simply will not see either phone, on either cable, in any USB port.

Platform is a HP 8460 Laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

So, er, help? :P
