    hey guys i have found a solution and just registered here to share it :>

    i wanted to restore the original firmware from my htc one to sell it, so i installed the toolkit etc.
    but it kept saying waiting for device, device offline...

    here's what worked for me, after trying lotsa different strange stuff from the internets:
    rebooted into clockworkmod recovery, then suddenly my pc went "hey a new usb device just connected". it installed the driver and then relocking the bootloader worked right away.


    finally

    i hope this can help someone.
    cheers everyone

    I had a similar issue. Turns out my phone would not connect on a USB 3.0 port. I have USB 2.0 port on my PC and when I plugged into that it worked fine. If you don't know if you have a 2.0 port, I'd check device manager or just try the phone on all your USB ports till it works.

    NOTED : when the installation process there will popup window warning just Click "install the software anyway"
    4. after complete the installation, open the cmd in administrator again and type "bcdedit /set testsigning off" and don't forget to restart again your pc.
    6. after restart your pc open the command promt at fastboot folder then type "fastboot devices" and you will see the list of devices in fastboot.

    You need to put the phone into FASTBOOT mode. Turn it off, then while holding the volume buttons, push and hold the power button, once its on the opening screen, you should leave it there and it will say FASTBOOT mode

    Perhaps asking in the Asus Zenfone 5 forums here or on XDA would be beneficial to you then. No offense, but the HTC Rezound forum your in likely won't yield a relevant answer.

    I know this is an old thread, but I'm wondering if anyone knows where to get the flashtool? Is it called "flashtool" or does it go by another name?

    I've been having an issue with unlocking the bootloader for the htc rezound. I get stuck at "waiting for any device" part after typing "fastboot oem get_identifier_token". I'm using a laptop with vista premium (it's an old laptop from 2008). I've also tried on my desktop with win 8.1 pro and I get the same issue.

    Anyone have a solution to this issue?

    I don't know what "flashtool" is but it isn't needed... Make sure you have ADB and fastboot installed, either from the full Android Development Kit or search for a current release of Minimal ADB & Fastboot (April 2016 on XDA is the current release I am aware of). And make sure you have the correct drivers installed by verifying HTC Sync works, then uninstall it (the drivers stay).

    I think the problem may be that the htc driver isn't being recognized by both my vista premium laptop and win 8.1 pro desktop.

    On my laptop, in device manager it says "Android USB Devices" and under that it says "My HTC" with a triangle and an exclamation point on the icon. When I click on the properties for that, it says under device status:

    "Windows cannot initialize the device driver for the hardware (Code 37)

    Click check for solutions to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution"

    On the desktop, it says in device manager "other devices" and under that it says "Android Phone" with a yellow symbol with an exclamation mark inside it. In the properties under device status it says:

    "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

    There are no compatible drivers for this device.

    To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver."

    I tried manually locating a driver and it didn't work. I tried installing htc sync and it didn't work either. I tried a different htc driver (version 3.0.0.007) and that didn't work either.

    The phone does work to view/edit the internal storage and sdcard on the laptop and maybe the pc too.

    Any idea what the issue might be?

    I haven't owned one of a long time... But are you familiar with Linux? No drivers are needed, just install fastboot/adb and plug it in and go.

    I've used Ubuntu a little bit and tried to use a demo version or some version of it on my laptop from a DVD disc, but that version was slow or was hanging at times.

    If I install Ubuntu on my laptop, you think it will work?

    I think it's more likely than trying to fix the driver issues, at least for me to help you fix it... I haven't used Windows as my primary OS in a very long time and I don't own the device anymore. Modern Linux kernels don't use external drivers for Android devices, it supports them natively, so it eliminates that from the equation.

    Not really a direct answer I'm afraid.

    I tries messing around with loading Ubuntu on a DVD on my desktop and it won't recognize my htc rezound phone while in the fastboot menu. It recognizes it to check the files on the phone when the rezound is loaded up to the OS, but not in the fastboot menu after I shut off the phone and started it up again while pressing the power and volume down buttons in some fashion.

    I tried running the fastboot command in the terminal, but it pretty much does the same thing as the issue I've had where it says "waiting for device".

    Do you know what the issue is?

    I prefer the USB stick, you can install software that isn't included in the distro, like fastboot and adb, from the command line easily.

    But to your question... when you boot into Hboot, you are starting fastboot, correct? You highlight Fastboot with the volume key, press Power to select it, then in reversed red letters it should say FASTBOOT USB about a quarter of the way down from the top of the screen, then you can issue fastboot commands. Try `fastboot devices` to see if the device is recognized.

    Note that in Linux, you may need to preface the command with sudo, so it would look like `sudo fastboot devices`
