So I am trying to unlock the bootloader on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 and therefore I need to have access to adb and fastboot.
I'm very frustrated because I couldn't find a solution within the last 3 hours. My device just isn't getting detected by my computer when it's in fastboot.
I have tried so far:
- Reinstalling Google Drivers
- Downloading Xiaomis drivers
- Disabling drivers signature
- Using a different PC
- Using 3 different USB Cables (including the original one)
- Using different USB Ports
- Using Linux Ubuntu
In all cases, my PCs just don't seem to recognize my phone in fastboot. I have enabled USB-Debugging and a adb works perfectly. Standard configuration for USB-Connections is data transfer. But as soon as I put my phone in fastmode manually or by adb reboot bootloader it just doesn't work. It does not seem to be a driver issue. When in "normal" ADB mode, it's showing up as a normal Android device without any errors (in device manager and "adb devices"), when in Fastmode it doesn't show up at all. Windows say the device is disconnected and there are no other unknown or faulty devices which I could try installing drivers for. fastboot devices just returns nothing.
What I mean is, it doesn't show up in
fastboot devices or in Windows device manager or even
lsusb in Linux.
I'm just desperate at this point. What am I supposed to do? Thank you very much for any help...
