Thanks man and jump right in here if you are available. You know way more about this device that any of us.
Have you used the sdk on this device before? Any special adb/fastboot drivers required and if so where to get them? I read in THIS
thread that the fastboot devices command doesn't output a value. Does this ring a bell with you?
@Blacklablelive: Do you have a machine that runs Windows, Linux, other?
