General :: Can't Get Fastboot Even With ADB Commands
May 4, 2014
i have root access, and full adb, but i cant get fast boot even with adb commands. i attempted to flash a faulty a20 tablet i had via sd install. and i obviously had a damaged flash, anyhow it wiped the tablet clean, the backlight still lights up. i can turn it on and off, and i can boot the boot loader.
is there anyway out of this, i want to install a recovery, but with no flashboot....
how to flash a kernel using fastboot on os X. Therefore I've decided to add a new post about that on XDA for those who want/need to use fastboot on mac os X. Example given for a Sony Xperia ARC LT15i. This should work for any SE device but will need different vendor ID value for another Brand.
- Download and extract Android SDK (let's say on the Desktop for the rest of the explanation)
- Add "Android SDK Platform-Tools" with android SDK Manager
- Download fastboot for mac here http:[url]....
- extract it in android-sdk/platform-tools/
Configuration Next you need to update the PATH for tools/ and platform-tools/ folder. - Open Terminal app and type
Code: nano ~/.bash_profile - Add the following two lines and change the (username) with the name of your mac os X account name :
I need to run a command on my android phone. It's actually a bash script I wrote and installed in /system/xbin/. I can open a terminal emulator and type the command, but would prefer having an icon to graphically run the command with a single tap.How can I add an icon to run a custom command?
Building an app that runs a ping command at the moment and I can't quite get it to work. If I modify the command to something that isn't a terminal command then it'll output my error statement but i can't get it to display the ping output. I know my outputs for my error are bad but it's an easy way to determine what path it's outputting.
I have read other tutorials about the fastboot update command, but I do not understand how to make system.img from a zip Rom. How to install a Rom with fastboot? Cwm recovery can't read zip files for some reason.
I would like to turn on my bluetooth from PC (via usb for now) using adb commands. until now I've found something like that:
adb shell "am start -a android.bluetooth.adapter.action.REQUEST_ENABLE" This works good but it requires user to accept a dialog, and if the phone would be 2 meters away it wouldn't be convenient. I also found sth.like that:
HTML Code: adb shell am start -a android.bluetooth.adapter.action.STATE_CHANGED However it gives this error:
I have had my GNex since it was released. However, I just got a new computer. I am trying to set up everything again on my new computer. I got the drivers working to a certain extent. I can get adb to work, however fastboot does not work.
How to get fastboot working?
Screenshot showing adb clearly works prior to bootloader, but it stops working after going into bootloader. It seems to lose connection to my phone once it is in the bootloader. I tried this multiple times.
My phone's usb works pretty much perfect, adb and the usb storage are working (HTC One M7). But when i do "adb reboot-bootloader" the pc just says "the usb device fails to enumerate or something like that. Everything works except for Fastboot and i dont know why. Has it something to do with Win 8.1? I never tried it on another machine before.
I want to install ClockWorkMod Recovery on my Karbonn A18, i tried doing it using SP Flash Tool, but it gives various Errors, I want to know how can i get into FastBoot Mode in A18 so that i can install it through their ?
Any list or link to a list of keyboard and mouse commands for our tablet?
I have a bluetooth mini keyboard* with a built in mouse and I would like to be able to control my tablet from my couch while it is connected to my TV's HDMI. However, I cannot figure out how to do basic tasks with the keyboard. The keyboard is this type: [URL] ......
Also, I'm not sure if the commands are tablet-specific, Android specific, or if they even exist at all. (I have searched XDA and Google, but because I do not know exactly what keywords to use, I am coming up without answers!)
Shortcuts I mainly need: 1-3) The three icons in the lower left of taskbar (they don't appear through HDMI): Back, Home, and the Prev Apps 4) Change homescreens/swipe left and swipe right (I can long click and move the mouse to do this, but it is difficult to do with my mouse since it is a knob type) 5) Long hold 6) Any other commands... heck, let's make a database if it doesnt exist already!
In case it matters: I am using ICS 4.0.3 stock (with root).
I'm planning on using the UpdatezipCreator from this thread http[URL].... to build an update script for some APK updates I want to package up. It appears this app has the ability to build a update-binary file for you.
I have APK files in both the system/app and data/app that I want to be copied to my phone.
First thing, can I have multiple destinations for the files in the script? I haven't found any examples with two destinations and there doesn't seem to be a spot to configure the source which makes me think it just takes everything in the zip and puts it in the folder you specifiy in the package_extract_dir function and that adding a second "package_extract_dir" function would confuse it.
The second question is I keep running across scripts that us busybox instead of the built in commands. Why would you need to/want to do that?This is what I would think would work for my script:
Code: ui_print("Preparing to update"); ui_print("Copying files.."); package_extract_dir("system", "/system");[CODE].....
I've got a backup archive in my PC and I can't access to my android, And my recovery mode (Android System Recovery 3e)only can restore with archives that be on internal SD.How can I put an archive of my PC to my internal SDcard using ADB commands? I need do it with ADB because I haven't got CWM.
What I want to do is be able to map arbitrary keycodes to execute custom commands. I purchased a Bluetooth numeric keypad, and with CM7, I am able to sync it and generate key events. However, they're not mapped to anything, so it's pretty useless. My hope in buying this product was the ability to map the keys to input events and be able to control my phone (Maps, IME, etc) while my phone is docked in my car so I'm not doing the "distracted driving" thing. So, is there a way I could code an app/service that would capture key/scancodes and execute user-defined commands (such as screen events)? Further, could this service change its behavior when the IME is active, allowing me to map the keys to the on-screen keyboard? I use a T9 app, and if the program could map to screen events when the IME is active allowing me to type T9 on a physical keyboard, that would be amazing.
