Default Fastboot, waiting for device.

Hi guys, I recantly decided to update my gt540 from 2.1 to 2.3.3
I followed steps by steps on by this tutorial - http://fdapps.comuf.com/downloads/Th...nce%20page.pdf

Installed rom with fastboot, tried to install Clockwork with fastboot, I typed fastboot flash recovery C:\recovery.img , and then there's <waiting for device> , doesn't go further, I have everything installed sdk, usb drivers and usb debugging activated. Maybe there's some problem with key combination, to get in fastboot. From google I understood, that I have to turn phone off, then press and hold camera + press power button! I did other combinations too, but didnt work.
Just waiting for device..

Any ideas? I read, that if you're in fastboot there's just a black screen, and on pc desktop appears fastboot usb. I have non of that.
Thanks for help in advance.

Hello
1. you need to install a ROM with fastboot the most common is europe + fastboot (KDZ) ROM.

2. once its finished phone will reboot, then fast login into fastboot mode CAMERA + POWER
3. You are missin 1 thing, OEM usb drivers not GOOGLE usb drivers as some tutorial says, those are just for Android Developer Phones (ADP), Nexus One, and Nexus S.
LG_Android_USB_Driver_Rebuilt
http://www.mediafire.com/?pbigrb8cimmxa4d
* these drivers are for your pc to recognize your phone in fastboot mode, they are not the normal LG usb drivers
4. for install the drivers abouve follow these smll tutorials
* if using windows 7:
http://developer.android.com/sdk/win-usb.html#Win7
* if using windows XP:
http://developer.android.com/sdk/win-usb.html#WinXp
once is installed plug your phone in fastboot mode to your pc, now your pc has to recognize your phone wait until it finish installing the drivers and read it properly
5. unzip the new ROM files into C:\*SDK\tools
6. open CMD Terminal and go to C:\*SDK\tools, type:
cd C:\*SDK\tools
7. once in, type
fastboot flash recovery recovery_clockwork_3.x.x.x_swift.img"
fastboot -w
fastboot erase system
fastboot erase boot
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot reboot

*Just in case it drops you an error AdbWinApi.dll missing here is the file. place it in C:\*SDK\tools and try again

Unhappy fastboot "waiting for device"

I have installed all the drivers and everything is working fine except fastboot. I have "nexus s" with me. The problem is:

I do "adb reboot bootloader" to flash the images, but after that if I do "fastboot devices", it doesnot show my device and if I do "fastboot flash ..", it just displays "waiting for device".


Can any one please help, I need it urgently..

THanks in advance

You need to turn phone off and hold down camera whilst pressing power.

Turn the phone off normally and when you'from holding down power to turn it on, also hold down camera until you get a black screen.
