One more quick query to experts here...

The last time I used fastboot+adb couple of years back,
I read in some websites, that the official "fastboot.exe" has a limitation, w.r.to its file-size handling capability of large image_sizes.
So "mfastboot.exe" was developed to address this problem. which I used for my MotoG 3rd gen.

My question, the current day "fastboot.exe" also has that file-size limitation? or it has been long solved.

As a quick search via the usual search-engines tell us, it should be no problems for current adb. See

Just want to say thanks to @shimp208 for this useful tool. One curved ball that people should be aware of. I have a piece of software called BullGuard which acts as anti-virus and firewall. Yep, you guessed it, even though it was smart enough to identify ADB and realized its purpose (creating a rule on the fly). It wasn't so smart with cmd-here.exe and was silently, very silently, blocking the endpoint on 127.0.0.1. Grrr.... Half a day wasted, downloading different drivers and trying to figure it out......

ADB commands do not work, while fastboot commands work fine, Ver. 1.4.2

error: no devices/emulators found
adb: error: connect failed: no devices/emulators found

List of devices attached
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *

Fastboot commands work fine, for example,

Boy, I recently spent a whole morning on this recently. Two gotchas:-

1) You need to make sure USB file sharing (not just charging) is on for ADB to work. I'm sure this is a bug!!!!!
2) Disable any Anti-virus/Firewall.
(I had an anti-virus/firewall running called Bullguard. The Firewall was smart enough to figure out what ADB.exe was and allow it. But Minimal ADB launches cmd-exe.exe or something and the Firewall was silently intercepting the 127.0.0.1 endpoint.)

also if he emulator fires up do an adb kill-server and try again.
