Onda v812 trying to get into fastboot to unlock my bootloader to install ubuntu


Thursday 18th of April 2013 / android.net
I cant get my onda v812 into fastboot mode. All that i have read about tablets is a button combination involving the volume keys, the problem is that my tablet only has home and power keys. I have tried apps and i have tried useing the android sdk on my Linux Mint 14 computer and the terminal (fastboot oem unlock, adb reboot bootloader). I have also tried the android-sdk on my wifes windows 7 computer. The directions it come with are in chinese, and i looked online for a english manual but could not find one. It has custom firmware and cwm so its rooted. I want to install ubuntu but without fastboot I can't unlock my bootloader. Any help would be appropriated.

With The Help Of The XDA Community, Koush Releases A Universal ADB Driver For Windows That Actually Works on 8


Monday 08th of April 2013 / androidpolice.com
The first time I tried using ADB after updating my PCs to Windows was a very unpleasant experience. What worked so well on Windows 7 was apparently borked in Windows 8 thanks to the new driver verification system that disallows unsigned drivers from running without this mode being first disabled, which requires a reboot. Upon subsequent reboots, driver verification is re-enabled, making the entire process tedious and beyond frustrating. I've since resorted to using a portable version of Linux Mint install virtualized within Windows – a less than ideal setup, it is. Today, however, famed Android dev Koushik Dutta (Koush) has released a universal ADB driver that not only works with all Android devices (that's right – no more proprietary drivers!), but also all versions of Windows – including 8. I'm not sure there's anyone on the planet more excited than I am about this. And it works beautifully. I immediately installed it and gave it a whirl on some of the random devices I have laying around and am happy to report that it works as advertised. ADB (and fastboot) is no

rooting - How to Root SpreadTrum SC6830 Kernel 2.6.35.7


Sunday 20th of January 2013 / android.stackexchange.com
Model - Callbar A1Android - 2.3.5Kernel Version – 2.6.35.7Software version – 2.3.001.P1.12065Hardware version – P1CPU – SC6820 (1 GHz.)Screen – 3.5” HVGAI tried several methods such as Doom Lord, Super One Click, Unlock Root, Z4Root to root the phone but none worked.Tried ADB to manually root the phone through commands but almost every command returns – “Permission Denied” or “Read Only System”. However files su, SuperUsr.apk, Busy Box were easily pushed into /data/local/tmp. Further steps like making local.prop and onwards could not be executed and returned above stated errors.Also tried modifications by putting update.zip on SD Card root and running Android Recovery System but this method also returned error “Signature Verification Failed”.Tried Nautilus on Linux Mint with OpenSSH while running DroidSSH on the phone but could not mount device by any means.Scanned my device with ‘X-Ray’ app which reported that device or firmware I am using had been patched and is not vulnerable to any of the exploit available at the moment.I desperately need rooting to

Usb Driver and Mass storage mode


Friday 10th of December 2010 / androidforums.com
Hey guys, I downloaded the latest Android SDK. It comes with the usb driver.I installed the Android ADB Interface driver.When I plug in my phone, it shows up in the device manager, and my android phone sees that it's plugged in, and also has the little debugging icon so it knows the driver is loaded.However.....A) I can't get mass storage device mode to do anything on my pc. There is no hard drive/storage device detected.B) The android sdk cannot connect to my android. It's not detectable.I've enabled and disable debugging mode and enabled/disabled Mass storage mode with no luck.The strange part is, in my laptop (where I run linux mint), ADB connects fine, and I can also access all files in mass storage mode no problems.Anyone have anything like this happening too? or know how to fix it? I don't see anyone to download an LG specific usb driver, so it's as close as I got.

Rooting the Pocketbook IQ (need help, no USB Debugging)


Saturday 11th of December 2010 / androidtablets.net
Hello everyone,Long time lurker and first time poster here.I am trying to root my Pocketbook IQ and have done a lot of reading lately and still cannot figure out how to try to root it.First, I have installed ADB and Eclipse on computer (which runs Linux Mint 64-bit) and I am able to issue commands to the emulator. Also, I have created the rules files for USB under the etc/udev/rules.d/ .Now, the Applications/Development/Usb debugging option is missing from my Android device. I see there is a DevTools icon and that you can use set a debug tool but there are none in there.I see the device with lsusb (18d1) but I cannot communicate with it.Does anyone have suggestions on how to go about rooting it?Thanks,Icewyng

Keep my original or the CLNR?


Sunday 03rd of November 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
So my maxx hd was in a boot loop after a factory reset. I went to a vzw store and got a certified like-new replacement mailed to my house. While waiting the 3 days for it to get here, I was able to use ADB to fix it. Now my dilemma is do I keep my phone, or the replacement? Mine is an early one (November 2012), is rooted (but locked), on 9.18.79 or whatever the latest one is. Mint condition body and screen. But I know battery is good and have had it since brand new. The CLNR is a later build, the body and screen looks mint, the paint on the trim around the screen is better. Likely not rooted, is on 20.1, but I don't know its history, battery condition... Although tge battery likely has gone through less charge cycles. Stick with what I know, or keep the new one with unknown history but likely newer phone?
