I know most MediaTek devices don't support fastboot, but I have a Canvas Knight (MT6592) which does reboot into fastboot mode when I use
adb reboot bootloader.
fastboot devices detects my device and
fastboot reboot reboots it. But if I try:
fastboot oem device-info: ran for over 10 minutes with no result. I finally stopped it using Ctrl+PsBrk.
fastboot oem get_unlock_state: ran for 2.24 minutes and ended up with this error:
FAILED (status read failed (Too many links))
fastboot oem device-info: after (2), this also gives an error imediately:
FAILED (command write failed (Too many links))
fastboot devices: ??????????????? device
rebooting FINISHED: -0.000s
However, the device doesn't reboot until I force it to using the power button.
Any idea what the problem is? I know that fastboot is unsupported and it may have problems, but if it is unsupported shouldn't it not work at all?
(No problems on the computer end. Same commands on a Nexus 9 work perfectly, and after rebooting the phone fastboot devices and fastboot reboot works, but then again the same problem)
