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 have an AT&T Atrix 4G and I wanted to imstall CM7.2.
I had the latest Atrix Android version on it. Then I followed the instruction at the cyanogemod wiki for the atrix. So I flashed the sbf (cyanodenmod wiki -> Motorola_Atrix_4G:_Full_Update_Guide).
The rsd lite flashing didn't succeed because the atrix rebooted and the programm couldn't switch into BP passtrougth, or so. At this point the device said something about 0x1000 no bootloader, but I could choose between rsd, fastboot and the other possibilities.
I booted into the fastboot mode and did an oem unlock. Now it says unlocked.
I booted again into the fastboot mode, and now it should be a simple
Code: fastboot flash recovery recover.img
But: Windows) it always says:
Code: sending 'recovery' (4824 KB)... OKAY [ 0.453s] writing 'recovery'... FAILED (status read failed (Too many links)) after that the device reboots and is in a boot loop
so i tried linux) The first time i tried the command everythings worked fine, but after reboot i chose.
Code: android recovery mode, but after a while (secs) the device rebooted.
so went to fastboot again, but now the device reboots after the sending command and then it says writing failed because of no device
I don't know if when I am using rsd lite to flash a complete image the phone reboots again and i have a hard brick.
I deleted /system folder on my nexian cosmic journey. And now my nexian is stuck...
I try to using fastboot mode to flash recovery image, but my device seems not detected. I already installed the android composite driver, but when i use "fastboot devices" command, it shows (?) So how the heck to get my nexian back to normal?..
Or perhaps, if i just be able to put back the /system folder to its place again, it would be more easy to recover it... But how access the root when phone is like that?
I used insecure boot and root trying to root my phone, which was a huge mistake as i noticed a few minutes later since i cant startup anymore and only get into bootloader.
Now I'm trying to flash my stock rom back.
My CID is VODAP102 and my Version is 184.108.40.206 so i downloaded the rom and tried "fastboot flash boot boot.img" the result is: sending 'boot' <8192 KB>... FAILED <data transfer failure <Unknown error>> finished. total time: 0.158s
i recently installed open etna which was awesome (great job guys) But then stupidly i plugged it into my computer and LG update popped up saying their was an update stupidly i clicked yes. God knows what i was thinking. now my phone wont get past the default android loading screen. I have left it on for days and the animation just keeps replaying over and over again. I can't access fasboot either to re-flash it back to open etna or whatever.The only thing i can get access to is emergency mode is there anyway i can get my phone working again?
My Problem: Was using the HTC Desire bought in India. I rooted with Unrevoked 3.21, S-OFF with Alpharev.
I was thinking of taking my phone to HTC to show an LED burnin problem, and tried to unroot by flashing the RUU for Asia_India: RUU_Bravo_hTC_Asia_India_1.21.720.4_Radio_32.36.00 .28U_4.06.00.02_2_release_127705_signed. I thought that was the correct RUU.
I booted my phone in Fastboot, applied the RUU, and it rebooted my phone into RUU. Then it flashed an error message saying the RUU version was incorrect. Being the idiot that I am, I rebooted the phone..And got stuck!
The phone does not boot. On pressing Vol- and Power button, it vibrates, and then nothing. Screen is blank. It wont boot into Fastboot, Recovery or the ROM. If I connect it to USB and do the Vol- and Poweron, it detects my device as an Android 1.0 device.
I have tried the following: 1. Went to Android SDK, tried flashing Clockworkmod recovery image with the command: Code:........
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.

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.

My mom's LGC800 is stuck in LG boot screen, is there any possible way to enter fastboot mode in the LGC800? I tried the adb command "adb reboot bootloader" it reboots and gets stuck again in LG boot screen..
HTC sensation blackscreen, trying to flash a nand backup. ADB, fastboot and Shell working.
I got into shell, can #ls that directory ok ..#cd sdcard... try to #ls sdcard or any other folder and will not show content. Im not up with linux commands. I believe I am missing a mount command somewhere.
What Im after is the location of backup folder so I can see the filename of the nand backup to restore in fastboot. And the commands necessary to restore a nand backup via adb, shell or fastboot.
I own a Moto G (Global GSM) running CyanogenMod 11 rooted with TWRP recovery and the bootloader is unlocked. I have been trying to go back to the stock firmware using this guide: [URL] ..... but I have a problem. The adb drivers for my device work fine when I am in the system or in the recovery, but don't work in the bootloader. I am able to type "adb reboot bootloader" when I'm in the system/recovery and it will follow the command, but once I get into the bootloader it stops. When I type "adb devices" a line saying "List of devices attached" comes up with nothing underneath it.
