Already installed those, I can send it adb commands in both FTM and while booted but not in the "download mode" via up & down volume + power button. It's seemingly just not recognized at all and does not show up in device manager if I were to want to install the drivers specifically while in download mode. At the moment I've only installed them while it's normally booted.
I'm computer versed but not so much android & phones versed so I might just be missing something simple, but I don't really know what to do if it's just not being recognized at all while in that mode. Windows knows a device connected, as device manager refreshes and gives a confirmation beep but I can't do anything from there since it's not displayed.
When I initially booted it into download mode windows did try to install drivers automatically, and it was recognized as an mtp storage device for a brief moment so I could access the phones files but quickly after that disappeared & It has not happened since. Is it possible windows installed bunk drivers automatically possibly? Looking through device manager there's just nothing there unless I'm stupidly missing it. I've combed through it multiple times thoroughly.
