    ADB Bootloader Help

    I'm trying to unlock my bootloader. I've spent 5 hours nonstop trying to do this. I've read all the instructions, countless times and watched countless videos. No luck.

    My problem, I get ADB in command to reboot bootloader - next I type fastboot oem unlock and I get "Waiting for device" and the phone does nothing from there.

    I have updated the drivers through the device manager.

    I can not figure out what is causing this.

    I have a CDMA Galaxy and it has 4.04 right now.

    I don't use Windows but from my understanding there is a fastboot driver and that is what you are missing / what's not set up correctly, someone will be in shortly I'm sure with further instructions.

    Get WUGFRESH toolkit. It'll do everything for you.

    I thought I Did that. I put it inside the ADK platform tools folder.

    I also tried Wugs that wasn't even picking up my phone/seeing my device.

    The Galaxy Nexus Tool Kit V7.4 did pick up my device, but still even that got stuck on "Waiting For Device".

    This is driving me nuts!

    You can try this one if you have a VZW GN, it is a small Linux operating system that has everything you need built in, no drivers needed.

    You need to get the fastboot drivers configured, and these are the best instructions I know of to configure the fastboot drivers properly...I'd give these steps a try:

    a. The best best drivers to try are PdaNet for Android, download and run the 32-bit Windows 7/Vista/XP or 64-bit Windows 7/Vista and follow the instructions to install (selecting Samsung as your device manufacturer if asked).

    You can remove pdanet for Android from your phone and pc at a later time without removing the drivers.

    b. After the drivers have been installed disconnect the usb cable and shut down your phone. Keep holding the 'Volume Up' and 'Volume Down' buttons and press the 'Power' button to boot the phone into FastBoot Mode.

    c. Goto your Control Panel on your PC and open the Device Manager. You want this open so you can see the FastBoot driver is installed or so you can install it manually.

    d. Connect the usb cable. In the Device Manager a new item called 'Android 1.0' should pop up and then the driver should install automatically. Once it is installed you will have a new section in the Device Manager called Android Phone without an "!" meaning its installed correctly.

    Note 1: If the driver doesnt install automatically then double click on the Android 1.0 item, then click on the driver tab and select 'update driver'. Select 'browse my computer' and then 'Let me pick from a list'. If no items appear in the list then untick 'Show compatible hardware' and find the Android adb driver or Samsung adb driver.
