    That variable is windir with a path of C:\Windows

    Does that sound right?

    install ed ADB drivers from this location C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\extras\google\usb_driver (windows 7) if you dont have that location then you need to download them with SDK manager (USB Tools)

    You may have to run the SDK Manager as Administrator

    When I type 'fastboot oem unlock' into command prompt, I just get this

    'fastboot' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    Any tips?

    Make sure fastboot.exe, and adb are in the same folder (tools or platform tools), then open that folder. Highlight the address at the top of the folder and type cmd. then try the fastboot oem unlock

    I was getting the same thing so I just manually pointed my command prompt to the C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\tools directory and ran it there. Of course now I'm stuck with the waiting on device message.

    Also make sure you are using the command prompt and not powershell.

    Ok I am stuck. I ran the fastboot oem unlock, unlocked it and rebooted the phone. Now it keeps rebooting at the google screen. It showed unlocked but wouldnt go further. So I then locked it back, and its still stuck on google and reboots.

    I did pull the battery too.

    Help!

    So after waiting, I put battery back in, went back into fastboot and unlocked again. this time it went past the google screen and went through the animation. Took a long time but eventually rebooted and showed unlocked still and then came up working. whew!

    if you are getting "Waiting on device" then you do NOT have the correct ADB drivers installed... Install the drivers from the SDK location android-sdk\extras\google\usb_driver

    When I enter the fastbook oem unlock into the command prompt, I get the following error

    This application has failed to start because AdbWinApi.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

    Any ideas?

    I dont think yall should be rooting your phone if you are not able to fix these issues.

    kichard - you need to install SDK Manager


    n0apostrophe - you need to install the SDK tools / paltform-tools
