The old Windows tinker in me says that is a sign of the wrong drivers. I understand you have the ones from Google, but Windows likes to think it knows better. Maybe try unhooking the phone and uninstalling all those drivers (both the ones in the Device Manager and whatever you installed from Google). Then reinstall Google's drivers before plugging in the phone. Hopefully that works.

Since I won't get a reply in the 6.1 q&a thread , because I'm a noob , I thought I'd ask in the n00b friendly thread :- )

I asked about your model number already, answering that might help.

Also, give me a link to your ROM thread.

@Droidriven Don't know if that helps, so you don't have to go back through the posts. Seems he just needs to re-flash a less sh*tty ROM and go from there.

Yeah, I saw it, I missed it because they didn't quote my post and I didn't get a notification. I'm reading the ROM thread now to see what others are doing about getting Gapps to flash.

Everybody just wants someone to hand them their answer so they don't have to figure it out for themselves.

I understand your frustrations as it is a common characteristic across tech forums (XDA and others). I have not formed an opinion on the member you are working with as I was simply trying to help. I see others are engaged so I will stand down.

I think that the reason why you can´t flash GApps resides probably in how the GSI that you are trying doesn´t suit correctly with your device of course there could be more reasons like a vendor that you flashed before or sometimes is needed to format data then to install the GSI, there´s no way to know exactly for those that don´t own your same device but only an approach, anyway GSIs are not as universal as they are supposed to be, maybe you can find a solution in bugs and fixes section, here´s just an example https://gist.github.com/ZeroInfinity...7cea4a87586fdd and also you can try with https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...9-0-0-t3828515 you can grab logs and post there, is an active thread.

Regarding fastboot I guess that you could enable USB debugging then to mess with GSI flashing so this generic images could sometimes corrupt your table partition, if you can´t solve doing what suggested for other members maybe you have to flash again your rom stock in order to restore it properly (and completely) https://forum.xda-developers.com/nok...sh-restore-sto

I agree with @Droidriven! :thumbup:

As one RC to Another...

I know It does get frustrating as times BUT, always remember that (as a personal opinion) it actually does get personally rewarding more times than not.

When others are also providing help, if it's a bit wacky, I've had to help clarify information but, if it's helpful, I just stand back and let them communicate in hopes of a positive outcome.

Don't be discouraged My Friend!
