Forewarning: I am not exactly an expert on this type of thing.
I have tried several things, but the problem seems to be that I cannot get into the bootloader via "adb reboot bootloader" or by pressing any of the physical buttons.
I have gone through most of the steps I can find on the internet, but all of them require that I first get into the bootloader. Here is what I am getting:
(ME): adb devices List of devices attached 338A000600000001015D7E810201F01? device (ME): adb reboot bootloader (PHONE): reboots, but not into bootloader (ME): [any of the following:] "fastboot OEM device-id"; "fastboot reboot"; "fastboot devices", and so on < waiting for any device > [crashes, and I have to reopen the PowerShell]
As of right now, I think it might be an issue (or intended 'feature') that the phone has. If anybody can help me out with this, I would be very grateful. Thanks!
[I will be sure to update this with any details I remember or am asked for, and with updates.]
