I know this problem seems to have been documented before, but I am at my wit's end with this stupid driver problem and I am afraid that both my phone and the plate glass window to the left of me are going to suffer the consequences Last year my power button started to become sporadically uncooperative, and a few months ago it died completely. I can still operate the phone to most of its ability, but switching it on requires a quick plug-in to the mains and unlocking it requires the volume key. Not ideal. Seeing as Vodafone refuse to repair it due to it being rooted, I had a quick search on the issue once again and have found that it may possibly be a software issue; while I'm not confident about this, I'm at least willing to give it a try. Here's where the problem starts. Fastboot. ****ing fastboot. I have installed and uninstalled more drivers than the bloody FIA in trying to get this to work again. This has never been an issue before...ever...but now it seems to be doing its best to piss me off. I have installed Samsung 1.4 drivers, Samsung 1.7 drivers, Samsung "naked" drivers, PdaNet drivers and nothing seems to work. Here is a list of problems, and I can only provide the promise that I will send you a nice postcard or something for helping me out: ADB is working. Fastboot is not. No USB device is detected in Device Manager while the phone is in Fastboot mode. While the phone is in normal use, it is discovered and installed (albeit as ACER ADB). Acer ADB is the device name, and I can't seem to install it as anything else (choosing drivers from another folder just prompts the computer to tell me that the drivers are already up-to-date). Hardware buttons do not operate in Fastboot mode. The volume buttons work within the OS, and Volume-Up still sends the phone into Fastboot mode. The phone is rooted, but Superuser cannot give permissions to ROM Manager. Please, PLEASE help me. I have just had it cut, so I'm struggling to pull my hair out - I'm just afraid what I might try to pull out next... EDIT: So it appears I can't even adb into recovery either. Big red triangle. My recovery image is gone. Current stress level: 62%.
