    Ubuntu fastboot?

    So any linux gurus here? I finally got my Xoom, and want to unlock/root before I bother setting everything up; however I can't get fastboot to work. Ubuntu is recognizing it as a command, but every time I enter: fastboot oem unlock, I get a never ending <waiting for device>. Has anybody ran into this? I have been getting my @ss kicked by this for a few hours now, and looking for an help I can get.

    You have the correct fastboot, make sure your device is in usb debugging mode (found in settings) and then run "adb devices" from the command prompt on your PC. If that shows your device and it still doesn't work then theres something else wrong.

    My mistake, that's what I'm having trouble finding; it seems every site with a compiled fastboot for the Xoom gives me a 404 or a account suspended. Does anybody have one their willing to part with? I have a computer that barely runs xp, or a laptop with ubuntu so I'm stuck at the moment

    I think that you nisunderstood, the fastboot that you used when you got the "waiting for device" is the correct one. you have to have usb debugging turned on in settings\applications on your xoom.

    as per uDev Rules for Any Device! (No more starting adb with sudo) - RootzWiki you neeed to enable the devices if you're using ubuntu linux, just small typo in his thread servuce uDev should be service udev restart

    Ok, so I was hopping along the bunny trail... and realized, nobody has ever posted a set of uDev rules for Ubuntu that work with any device and Ubuntu version > 7.10... (up until now, there's uDev results for specific devices, some wrong, some crazy, none all together)... so, I though I'd do the honor

    Here's the low down, read and complete all of the steps before telling me it doesn't work, please.


    • First, remove any rules you already set up for your Android Device (If any), they'll be very obvious if you look in /etc/udev/rules.d/


      sudo ls /etc/udev/rules.d/
    • Now, open an editor for the rules at /etc/udev/rules.d/99-android.rules:


      gksudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/99-android.rules
    • Now, paste all of the rules below:


      #Acer
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0502", MODE="0666"
      #Dell
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="413c", MODE="0666"
      #Foxconn
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0489", MODE="0666"
      #Garmin-Asus
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="091E", MODE="0666"
      #Google
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="18d1", MODE="0666"
      #HTC
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666"
      #Huawei
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="12d1", MODE="0666"
      #Kyocera
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0482", MODE="0666"
      #LG
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="1004", MODE="0666"
      #Motorola
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="22b8", MODE="0666"
      #Nvidia
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0955", MODE="0666"
      #Pantech
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="10A9", MODE="0666"
      #Samsung
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="04e8", MODE="0666"
      #Sharp
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="04dd", MODE="0666"
      #Sony Ericsson
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0fce", MODE="0666"
      #ZTE
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="19D2", MODE="0666"
    • Save and close the file.
    • Change the file permissions:

      sudo chmod a+r /etc/udev/rules.d/99-android.rules
    • Now, unplug all Android Devices...
    • Restart the uDev service:

      sudo service udev restart
    • Kill and restart adb:

      adb kill-server
      adb start-server
    • Done... you should now be able to work with a device from almost any manufacturer. Plug your phone in to test.
