C:\Windows\system32>fastboot oem get_identifier_token
'fastboot' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
downloaded fastboot.exe to desktop unzipped it... followed c prompt instruction, got as far as here
cd changed dir to _MACOSX (folder the file is in) still same result... i thought it was funny when i clicked on the binary for the fastboot exe it downloaded it in a folder named MACOSX even though it was the windows option i clicked .. i double checked
eureka .. your file worked.. the htc dl was missing the .dll files
token submitted .. now to get the email
htc sync backed up... copy paste files backed up and google cloud backed up.. lol.. I am in IT it was just 1st time i tried this rooting stuff... its unlocked now, restarted on factory defaults... will browse for roms tomorrow.. many thanks for all your help, keep up the good work
oooookay lol... (i am a noob)
I've unlocked it, restored backup for contacts etc, will wait til tomorrow before tackling any more, too tired... thanks again
was trying to get TWRP on google playstore but it isnt available, there is one called TWRP manager by JMZ and wondered if that is any use?.. or would it be better to download from pc and use a command to use it......
