2.3 and 2.4 do not seem to be working. They keep suggesting that the Nexus Player is an htc device when attempting to unlock the bootloader

Do you have to have your NP connected directly to the pc for this? or can I ADB through the network?

just picked up a NP player today. installed the drivers and such as prompted when i started the toolkit. But just says "unauthor" at the bottom. says nothing is connected. Does the NP need to be plugged into a TV at the same time? I dont have a laptop so i have to plug it into my PC on 1 side of the room in order to use the toolkit.

I just bought two of these awesome players had all sorts of issues with this toolkit even working and the other main toolkit nothing would unlock my bootloader..

Downloaded WUGfresh NEXUS toolkit and that didnt work either so i ran manual mode from wugfresh then did the unlock code myself low and behold it worked lol

we have had a nexus player for almost a year now and are currently working on a friend's to unlock the BL and root to put Kodi on for them. now... my question..

has anyone successfully unlocked the bootloader AFTER taking the 6.0 OTA? we thought "hey to make it easier on ourselves and them we will just leave lean back instead of going with lollirock, take the update and put kodi on for them" we were a little over zealous because now our desktop (linux)terminal won't recognize the device and we have tried mannnny cables we know to work.

any advice or anything helps.. you know how it is to get the gears turning ? hoping that we didn't update and now there's no way to do it. I have a feeling ..

You can unlock it via adb/fastboot, type the following in the command shell. Fastboot oem unlock. You may have to type it twice but beware as it will erase everything on the nexus player.

but we got it.

    Will you be updating this soon since there now is a TWRP available for the NP? Looks like a super simple tool to use :)

    I would definitely like to know bc I am not rooted yet. ...and thus seems like it is what I need

    I will definitely be adding TWRP flashing for the NP in the next update of the toolkit. :eek:

    Does twrp install on the np?

    No, since TWRP has not been released for the NP yet. The toolkit only unlocks bootloader and roots.

    Any development here?
