If you start flashing your firmware downloading only adb and fastboot please be sure to download the latest version otherwise you may experiments errors like the one below

# fastboot flash system image-shamu-lmy47z/system.img
< waiting for device >
sending 'system' (1737280 KB)...
(bootloader) Data size exceeds download buffer

Just in case... to flash Android 5.1.1 on a Nexus 6 I succesfully used the version below attached

Hi all,

Just trying to do this but my device says unauthorised. what do I need to do?


edit: okay I got it to work by unplugging and plugging a few times.

I thought this would make my device appear as a storage device in Finder but this is not so... am i misunderstanding the use of this?

Hallo everybody, i have some problems. I always used my adb-fatboot folder with nexus 5 without any issue. Today, using the same folder, i unlocked my Oneplus two bootloader but when i try to flash twrp using as usual "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" command i have always this message: error cannot load "recovery.img". What's wrong with this?

edit: solved, dragged and dropped file directly in terminal window

I am using a Mac ( el capitan )...I have installed the Android Studio and adb looks installed correct.

When running command ./adb version it gives:
Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.29

When I run ./adb devices however I get:
adb server is out of date. killing...
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached

How can I solve this so I can root?

Hello, maybe someone can enlighten me.
How can I get the adb and fastboot files updated? I mean, I have a version on the desktop right now which I used last summer for my N5, but I ain't sure they're fine with the OP2 I got now (or for the N5 right now, if I still had it). Shall I download the whole Android SDK package and then get out the two things? How do I do so?
Thank you.

I have followed all of the steps but am having trouble retrieving the device's serial number in terminal. I believe it may have something to do with the fact that I cannot enable usb debugging because my device has no operating system. Is there a way to get around this or a way to turn it on from recovery mode?

Thanks in advance!!
