Fastboot 'Sending Recovery' Hangs
Hey guys, I'd appreciate it if you could help with this.
I have a HTC One V Virgin Mobile phone that I want to root. So I have followed the steps in the stickied threads to the best of my knowledge. When I go to the bootloader it says my phone is unlocked, so I can assume that part is working.
Now onto the rooting part. This is what I have typed into the console.
C:\Users\*******\Desktop\Phone Hack>fastboot flash recovery twrprecovery.img
< waiting for device >
sending 'recovery' (5396 KB)...
A green loading bar appears on my phones screen but does not appear to fill up. The phone itself seems frozen. If I close the command prompt and unplug my phone, I can work with it again. I waited for about a half hour twice now seeing if it just took a long time.
Anyways, to me, it does not look like my computer is sending anything at all.
Also, 'fastboot devices' shows my phone when I type it into the command line.
Help is appreciated.
