fastboot flashing images

my own experience of trying to use the fastboot tool i'm finding it odd how after using OEM unlock on a wifi xoom which is normal retail version... that:

1. fastboot flash boot boot.img works instantly , fine

2. when i then try to do the next file.. i.e.

fastboot flash system system.img

it just times out, and fastboot devices shows the device is still connected. 

error : Failed to process command error 0x120003

i can even rerun the boot.img task and it runs immediately.

wth is going on ... any ideas?

Re: fastboot flashing images

solution

i figured out that attaching the device to a usb port on front of pc which is likely to be only USB V1 is cause.

make sure you attach to usb v2 port, which is generally all usb on rear of machine.

for laptops use the usb port nearest the power supply.

note if the machine is too old and all are usb v1. then consider doing it on another machine.

my issue went away when i connected to a new pc which i knew has only usb2

Perfect. I tried it too and connecting directly to one of the back slots worked.


Thanks!
