Hello everyone,

I've come across an interesting issue I haven't seen before and was wondering if anyone else has seen this happen. I just got my X Fold the other day and was trying to remove the bloatware with adb on my computer. When I plug it in and enable USB debugging, my laptop hard crashes, just immediately black screens. It then takes a couple of attempts of it turning on, then shutting off before I can boot, before I finally comes back to life and is acting normally. I've never seen this before or heard of it happening, anyone have any idea what's going on? I wiped the phone when I got it so it's not like there's some malicious code from the last owner, unless it's built into the system? Although I have a feeling it's something more mundane like an incompatible driver.

Update: I've discovered my USB ports no longer transmit data. All of them can input/output power, but anything with data like a USB drive or my Ethernet adapter don't work. This is really odd...
