[android] Android Fastboot devices not returning device

At the moment I would like to reinstall Android on my device(custom hardware device). I got the image files after building. But when I enter fastboot devices nothing returns.

adb devices is working. It return my device. fastboot flashall -w is also not working. I returns <waiting for devices> and stays like that until I exit.

So the 70-android.rules.d file is right. I have also set ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT. But someone knows why fastboot does not see my device, but adb does?

Restarting udev or adb does not work. Some people recommend that on the internet.

OS: Ubuntu 11.10

This question is related to android installation fastboot

The answer is

For Windows:

  • Open device manager
  • Find Unknown "Android" device (likely listed under Other devices with an exclamation mark)
  • Update driver
  • Browse my computer for driver software
  • Let me pick from a list of devices, select List All Devices
  • Under "Android device" or "Google Inc", you will find "Android Bootloader Interface"
  • Choose "Android Bootloader Interface"
  • Click "yes" when it says that driver might not be compatible
