I have been reading so much trying to find the answer to this problem, but I can't find any. I am not quite sure what to do at this point.
I am running XUbuntu and I am trying to to root my SM-9005 note 3 international version. My problem is my device isn't being recognized by fastboot (I tried windows and odin never recognized my phone either).
My device is has USB debugging on. It gets recognized in adb. It gets detected in heimdall when in ODIN mode. But doesn't get detected in fastboot.
Here is some information that might be useful:
Phone running in OS
Bus 001 Device 018: ID 04e8:6860 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd GT-I9100 Phone [Galaxy S II], GT-I9300 Phone [Galaxy S III], GT-P7500 [Galaxy Tab 10.1]
List of devices attached
$adb reboot bootloader
Now in Odin mode
Bus 001 Device 019: ID 04e8:685d Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd GT-I9100 Phone [Galaxy S II] (Download mode)
$sudo fastboot devices
Nothing shows up
$sudo fastboot oem unlock
< waiting for device >
It gets stuck on this and nothing happens. And there is no indication that anything is happening on the phone.
I am lost and would appreciate all the help I can get.
I can't even get the pit file using heimdall
$sudo heimdall print-pit
