Need help to flash Videotron N1 to 2.2.2 (getting error)
Tuesday 25th of January 2011
Okay, I'm a complete noob when it comes to N1 flashing, but I have asked for the help of kusanagi and got some good info to get me started.I basically want to flash my N1 to get rid of Videotron's Custom ROM completely and use the stock Nexus One ROM and update it to the latest available update [Android 2.2.2 to begin with, then perhaps Android 2.3 (aka Gingerbread)]... I don't want to use a custom ROM with enhanced stuff in it, I want vanilla stock with latest patch applied, that's it.What I have done so far (on Windows 7 x64):- I have managed to root my N1 using Universal Androot (used nothing else)- I have installed the Android SDK (installed all packages and it already includes fastboot) and got my USB Driver to work.- I have downloaded the following zip: Nexus One FRG83 system image and saved it where fastboot.exe is located (in [sdk path] ools)- I have read this Video: Flashing Froyo onto Your Nexus One ... but some parts only confused me.- I have read this Flash the System Image Package to the Device and figured that's what I needed to do, so after taking note of my contact i
Android SDK Windows based guide
Thursday 01st of September 2011
I have noticed a few people who are new There are 2 files for you to download, an .exe and a .zipAndroid SDK | Android Developersthe .exe is a full install but for beginners, the .zip is easier to use, and has all commands in one place. When you install you will have commands like adb and fastboot in different folders which i found out the hard way when i upgraded to r121. When you download the .zip file, you will have android-sdk_r12-windows.zip2. you need to extract the filewhen you do this, you will have a folder named android-sdk_r12-windows3. inside this folder is the folder named android-sdk-windows a. for ease of use rename this folder android4. Move the android folder to the root of your main hard drive (not in any folders)5. inside this folder is a folder called tools, this is where ALL commands you will need are located.To test this, connect phone to computeropen command prompt1. your command prompt should open up and say:c:users(username)> with a blinking cursor2. type cd c:android ools3. your command prompt should now read c:android ools>4. type adb shellif yo
Fastboot - where is it and how do you make it work?
Tuesday 31st of August 2010
I have heard many many many references to 'fastboot' it's obvious it's on the phone, but every time I look at a rooting or firmware update guide, it seems to imply that it's part of the android sdk. 'just go into the tools folder then run fastboot command filename.ext'But fastboot.exe, fastboot.com, fastboot.bat, fastboot.msi. any thing that would cause a command called 'fastboot' to run out of that folder does not exist in the android sdk.So where is fastboot coming from on the pc side of things. where specifically is this component or program gained? should it be in the sdk? I've installed every release of it, it's not in any of them.This lack of 'fastboot' on the pc side of things is the only thing that's stopping me at this point.Where is this fabled, and seemingly non existent fastboot application?

After you get that created do the following:Go to HTCdev - Unlock Bootloader.Select "All Other Supported Models" and "Begin Unlock Bootloader".A pop up box will appear asking if you wish to continue as this process can void all or parts of your warranty.

Never ran adb but it's running; can I use nonadmin Windows account?

Over the space of a week, I've stealing snippets of time in the evenings reading web pages on installing CyanogenMod on my new Moto G. I find that there is a lot of detail regarding the steps to take, but it's been harder getting the big picture. So far, my "map" is that I have to unlock the boot loader, root the phone, install backup software and backup the original (preferrably with all caches cleared), install a recovery, then install CyanogenMod. I will admit up front that in the process of going on detours reading up for context, I lost track of where I was at, and on what web page of instructions. However, from "c/Program Files (x86)/Android", I the following installed. android-sdk/AVD Manager.exe android-sdk/platform-tools/adb.exe android-sdk/platform-tools/dmtracedump.exe android-sdk/platform-tools/etc1tool.exe android-sdk/platform-tools/fastboot.exe android-sdk/platform-tools/hprof-conv.exe android-sdk/platform-tools/sqlite3.exe android-sdk/SDK Manager.exe android-sdk/tools/emulator-arm.exe android-sdk/tools/emulator-mips.exe android-sdk/tools/emulator-x
Why can't I backup with adb?
Wednesday 29th of October 2014
Hi, I wanted to unlock, root and install CyanogenMod on HTC One M8. Before that I want to ensure that all my private data are copied to my desktop PC with Ubuntu. Unfortunately I cannot see any way to enable USB debugging on my M8. Without that, it does not work. cd HTCOneRoot/cd HTCOneRoot/ls adb.exe fastboot-linux adb-linux fastboot-mac adb-mac HTCDriver_4.1.0.001.exeAdbWinApi.dll openrecovery-twrp-184.108.40.206-m7.imgAdbWinUsbApi.dll openrecovery-twrp-220.127.116.11-m7wls.img CWM-SuperSU-v1.30.zip recovery-clockwork-touch-18.104.22.168-m7.imgfastboot.exe UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.65.zipchmod 755 *./adb-linux backup -apk -all -f backup.ab* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 ** daemon started successfully * adb: unable to connect for backup I have found some tutorials (sorry, I cannot provide you the link where I have found those, as it would break forum rules) that show where I can change it in the settings to enable USB debugging. But there is no such entry in my settings! I guess something might have changed in newer versions of HTC Android. And without that adb does not work. I have di
