fastboot detects Redmi 2, but not Yureka.

I am trying to install Cyanogenmod in Yu Yureka. When I tried installing the CM zip with default recovery, it failed stating "Signature Verification Failed".

So I tried to install the TWRP recovery using fastboot. I did the following:

root@konoha:~# adb devices
List of devices attached 
2a25599 device

root@konoha:~# lsusb
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:0825 Logitech, Inc. Webcam C270
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 007 Device 002: ID 046d:c534 Logitech, Inc. 
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05c6:9039 Qualcomm, Inc.

Bus 008 Device 002: ID 0bc2:5071 Seagate RSS LLC 
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

root@konoha:~# adb reboot bootloader

root@konoha:~# fastboot devices 

root@konoha:~# grep 05c6 /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules 
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="05c6", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev"
#SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="05c6", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev"

root@konoha:~# cat /etc/group | grep plugdev
plugdev:x:46:itachi
root@konoha:~#

I get the fastboot screen on Yureka device, but no luck with fastboot devices.

IMG: Fastboot mode

Some suggested that running fastboot as root user solved this. But that too didn't work for me. But for Redmi 2, I was successfully able to install TWRP recovery using fastboot, so that makes fastboot works, but not for Yureka.

I am using Ubuntu 14.04.

  • Do you need to add udev usb rule for yureka?

  • @moonbutt74 I've already added the udev rules file from android website, and that contained the yureka's vendorid. Please see the pasted content. The Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05c6:9039 Qualcomm, Inc. is the Yureka device and the vendor id "05c6" is present in the rules file

  • Kenpachi, it may be that you are not in fastboot mode, meaning ' adb reboot bootloder ' hasn't actually put you in fastboot mode. i don't know what model you actually have but follow the guide here concerning booting the device into fastboot mode then check your read again, forum.xda-developers.com/yureka/orig-development/…

  • @moonbutt74 To unlock the bootloader, I must gain access to fastboot. BTW I get the Fastboot screen, but fastboot devices does not list the device

Yureka requires the vendor ID as a parameter for fastboot. Try the following (tested on Yureka Plus):

% lsusb
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 1ebf:7001  

% fastboot -i 0x1ebf devices
-1

Try this command for Yu Yureka

sudo fastboot -i 0x17ef devices
