    Cant get drivers to load. Keep getting,"Specified location does not contain info for your hardware". Had it rooted to 2.2.1(stock 2.2.2) and regained my cell signal. When I went to recover I must have hit a wrong key or recovery file didnt actually load fully. Wifey is not gonna be happy if I have a new 130 dollar paperweight. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Got it to work and accidentally rebooted back into fast boot. Now when trying all i get is bad block error cannot erase on the phone, when going back through the steps. cmd says ok and finished.
    any ideas?
    Tried erasing partition and get unknown partition error in cmd. I had to use the generic google usb driver and it comes up as adb interface in dev. man. since the provided drivers didnt want to load.
    Should have just left it alone I am fearing.

    this has to be fixable. I can command fastboot to boot a boot.img provided with the team chicken eater rom and I get my charging screen as if the phone was off and charging. keep trying things to no avail,newb at this so learning proper command lines.

    Ok. So I got into fast boot mode some how today. I was doing something with trying to re-flash recovery (going from CWM to GNM's recovery) and it went into fast boot mode. I have XP and so my options are slightly different than yours, but I was trying to follow along. When I got to the point that I select the lgandadb.inf, and then select ok I get an error that says "The specified location does not contain information about your hardware." I tried some of the other drivers in there with the same results. Any thoughts on this?

    I haven`t done it in XP, but you could try installing the drivers again and see if that works. If it doesn't; let me know and I`ll see how I may be able to help you.

    yeah.. if you ahve the drivers installed.. it should just pop up "installing new drivers" when you plug the phone in while in fastboot mode.. or check your decive maanger and see if its showing up as a fastboot device

    Make sure that you are typing this into cmd, also that you extracted the downloaded .zip file to your C:\ drive

    This is what you should type into cmd after unzipping the file:

    Code (Text):
    1. cd C:\Fastboot\android-sdk-windows\tools
    2. fastboot erase boot
    3. fastboot erase recovery
    4. fastboot erase system

    Then type this to flash recovery and reboot to recovery:

    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot flash recovery C:\Fastboot\Recovery\recovery-RA-optm-2.2.1-GNM.img
    2. fastboot reboot
    PS Type one command at a time in cmd.

    Hope this helps

    Joneidy, your instructions require that the Android Device is recognized in the Device Manager. What can one do if they are stuck on Fastboot mode after failing to properly flash a custom recovery and their PC doesn't recognize their device?

    My device isn't recognized and it's held me back from completing any of your detailed guides.

    What can i do?!

    Once again, this guide saved my bacon. :) I was trying to use the flashimage gui app to flash playfulgod's newest CWM recovery (CWM to replace the version 4 something that I had, and it went into fast boot mode. Oh well. This time around though, I placed his recovery image into the recovery folder and flashed it instead of the GNM recovery that is supplied with the files provided in the OP. It worked like a charm. I do have the CWM recovery and am in the process of restoring my most recent back up made with CWM from a couple of days ago.
