    Unlocking Bootloader Question

    I'm at the step after downloading Android SDK Manager and in the guide it says to install "Android SDK Tools, revision 15", "Android SDK Platform-tools, revision 9", but in the manager the only ones I see are revisions 16 and revision 10, respectively. I assume this is fine but I really want to be sure. Thanks

    Thanks. New problem: I rebooted into bootloader, then typed fastboot oem unlock and nothing happened. It just says waiting for device. My computer says the driver didn't install. What do I do

    It's all about getting the right combination of drivers. In the lower part of that same link there are some other options for drivers. Give that a look.

    But I was able to get passed step 8, when I typed adb devices my device showed up

    Edit; Got it, thanks!

    When I did it, for whatever reason, adb and fastboot required two different drivers.

    I think the PDANet driver was the one that got me past the Waiting for device thing.
