    Thread [SOLVED] Can't sideload a ROM because it adb doesn't show device?

    I have the device attached, it shows up in fastboot, but when I do "adb devices" it shows nothing. Therefore I cannot sideload a ROM. The reason I have to sideload is because there is currently no system to boot into. Is it because I have to find the correct drivers or something? I tried...

    Thread What elements are best for the design I want in my app?
