So about 'device not found'. I had this 'issue' when rooting mine a few weeks ago, so here's what I had to do.
When rooting, you're gonna be using the ADB tools to interface with your phone through USB. This would mean that the computer needs specific drivers for ADB to work properly, which for some reason, did not install well. I'm running Win7 x64 and had a hard time setting it up initially.
SO what you want to do is to first go to Device Manager on the PC and uninstall
the drivers for anything related to the phone - it'd probably show up under 'Other devices' with a driver issue. Do that and unplug the phone.
Next, go to install PdaNet
. Just run the exe and it will install the drivers you need for ADB to work! Once this is all done you can uninstall the PdaNet program if you don't use it - the drivers will still remain.
When you plug in your phone (it might prompt during the installation, I don't remember) and head to device manager now, you'll see a new entry at the top called Android Phone, with a device called Android ADB Interface
. Once you see this, then you're good to go with the rest of the goldcard instructions you were following.
Just to be sure, reboot the PC and go to the Android SDK\Tools in a cmd prompt and type in adb devices
. It should return with the serial number of your phone.
That's it, hope it helps!
