adb won't recognize my phone. I use the toolkit to install the HTC drivers, but when I run the first script it get a "device not found message"

I'll try this on my laptop, see if it makes a difference. I have rooted many phones with this computer: Xperia X8, Xperia Sola, Atrix 4G, Atrix 2 and adb has always shown something when I run "adv devices" command.

I'm open to suggestions though! I'm running windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, in case this information in useful.

uninstall driver and retry maybe even in another usb port

I installed HTC Sync from HTC's website to make sure I had the right drivers. Give that a go and report back.

Thanks for responding. I couldn't quite figure it out so I ended up ditching the tool-kit method and manually flashing it through command prompt.

You really didn't need to give it crap to my toolkit. You needed to read the pop up messages after you ran a command. It'll tell you EXACTLY what it is going to do and what you need go do as well and it'll work perfectly

This is for those of you having trouble rooting with the HTC First All-In-One Toolkit.

Pre-Requisites

*You must already have your bootloader unlocked to use this method. Unlocking your bootloader is a very easy process and the HTC Dev site walks you through each step.*

***I am NOT responsible for anything that happens to your device. I ONLY recommend using this method if you understand what you are doing.***

- Download the Toolkit if you haven't already. Then you'll want to unzip it and place it on your desktop.

- Under Start, My Computer, Local Disc (C:\) make sure you have a folder named fastboot with SDK manager/SDK files (adb/fastboot files). Most of you should already have these files and a fastboot folder. If not, let me know and I will assist you in geting them.

- Make sure you have the proper drivers for your HTC First already installed.

Steps

1) Open the folder where you have extracted the HTC First All-In-One Toolkit. You should have the First.exe and a folder named Data.

2) Open the folder named Data. Inside you will want to look for 2 folders. One is named SU and the other is named Recoveries. These should be the first 2 folders.

3) Open the folder named SU and inside you will see SuperSU.zip. Move this file onto your desktop for now.

4) Go back and open the folder named Recoveries. Inside you will see your 2 recovery options: CWM.img and TWRP.img

5) Choose the one you want (Clockworkmod or Team Winn Recovery) and move it into your folder named fastboot under Start, My Computer, Local Disc (C:\) and then the folder itself fastboot.

6) After moving your choice of recovery into the fastboot folder, rename it recovery.img

7) Close everything out and go back to your desktop and plug your phone in via MTP connection so that you can transfer the SuperSU.zip folder from your desktop to the base/root of your internal SD card.

8) When you finish moving the file and safely disconnecting your phone from the computer, power off your device.

9) Once the phone is fully powered off, hold volume down and power to boot into the bootloader/hboot (make sure you start holding volume before power or it will power on normally).

- Since your bootloader should be unlocked you should be familiar with the bootloader and its selection mechanics. Using volume down, navigate to Fastboot and use power to select it.

10) Plug your device into the computer and set it aside. It should run through the drivers unless of course it already recognized them as installed.

11) Once the drivers finish or if it already recognizes them, open up command prompt.

- Depending on your version of windows it will either be Start, Run, cmd, Enter -OR- Start, type cmd in the search box (Vista or W7), Enter.

12) Run the following command: cd c:\fastboot

- You should now see C:\fastboot> which indicates that it has identified the fastboot folder.

13) Run the command : fastboot flash recovery recovery.img (yes, type recovery twice)

- It should show that it is flashing the recovery along with its progress in doing so. Once it finishes the device should reboot.

14) Once your device reboots, power it off once again. Using the same method as indicated in step 9, boot into the bootloader.

- This time, instead of fastboot, navigate to recovery with the volume down key, select it with the power button.

15) The phone should then boot up into the recovery you chose and flashed earlier on. Once it boots the recovery, choose to install zip from sd card and flash the SuperSU.zip.

-When it finishes flashing the zip, reboot your phone and voila, you now have either CWM or TWRP recovery and root access.

Finally got my friend's HTC First bootloader unlocked and rooted. Does anybody know what APKs are safe to delete? I'm clearing the bloatware like Instagram and a few others, but since the HTC First is THE Facebook phone, is it safe to delete the Facebook Home APK from the \System\ partition?

Does this process auto s-off?

I don't know if I can do much if it's not s-off... I'd like to s-off my htc first

thanks

Hi, I've bricked the phone, I was able only to access to Recovery or Bootloader.
So I've used the exe RUU and I've reverted to stock rom after relocking the bootloader.

Now I am trying to re-unlock the phone for root it but every time I do it the phone bricks again, I can see the facebook logo that, after 1 minute, the phone resterts itself, FB logo and so on.

I can only relock the bootloader and the phone works, factory resetted.
So I don't know how properly root it!

The phone is S-OFF maybe it a problem, but I do not understand why it works if I relock the bootlader.

Super Toolkit! Thank you. Question: how does your permanent root compare to
s-off? Is s-off a problem if established prior to running your toolkit? Thank for the superb work! --Larry

S-Off is an abbreviation for "Security Off" which means that you can rewrite every part of the phones storage such as bootloader, data and system, gain root, repartition the device.

Root refers to the Operation System and means that you have a lot more access priviledges.

Part of this toolkit is to bring your phone in a semi-s-off mode via HTC Dev which is an official method provided by HTC. If you already have s-off, it won't hurt but it won't help you neither as this toolkit doesn't do anything else than pointing you to the HTC Dev website. You will be able to use its other features though.

awesome tool man :) I had a customer bring one that was really f*cked up. it had 2 recoverys but it's partitions were seriously messed up and even the stock ruu would not install on it. used your tool to format the living hell out of it then the stock ruu installed first try no issue. after I used it to put a recovery and root it with absolutely no issue.

always get error: device not found

I went through the procedure, and I can boot into CWM or TWRP, but I cannot boot the phone back into normal operation.

I think one option would be to go back to RUU, but I cannot find one.

Also, I've tried two different Win7 PCs (one 32-bit and one 64-bit), but both give me "error: device not found" from adb. I think it really is connecting to USB because I am able to lock and unlock the bootloader using the tool.

If someone can let me know where to find the RUU, I think I can get it restored.

Thanks.

I soft bricked mine last night if you flash the RUU exe which is what i had to do make sure you relock the bootloader first then you can flash the RUU then set up the phone unlock bootloaded again reflash recovery then you must relock bootloader to boot into the RUU rom then you can put a coustom rom back on sd and flash it. Hope this helps this is what i had to do cause i got the same "error: device not found" from adb .could not sideload from CWM or TWRP. Here is where RUU is http://www.androidfiles.org/ruu/?developer=Myst

    I created an easy to use GUI program for the HTC Amaze and I decided to make one for the HTC First.
