Thank you very much it looks like i was the problem all the timeEDL mode is entered by powering off your phone disconnected from USB.
Then holding Power Up + Down and connecting the USB cable. It only stays in this mode for a short period of time if I remember.
You can also get to edl with
adb reboot edl
There is a command to get to edl using fastboot, but I can't remember off the top of my head right now.
