    Hi,
    Enabled the USB debugging on the phone and tried generating the token id but it says device not found in the first command prompt. In the second one it shows
    FAILED (remote: unknown command).

    Device is connected to the system and now phone is only displaying => FASTBOOT mode.. Unable to restart it and re-connected the phone but no use.

    I am struck now. Pls advise how to proceed.

    “One M8.exe” is a PUP : Win32:MultiPlug-QC [PUP] , Malware detected by Avast , and Avast eat this file . Why you want our OS windows to be a victim ? YOU INFECT MY OS !

  • Jennifer :P

    The “One M8.exe” that I extracted from the downloaded archive is there for a second when I open the file but then it just disappears. When I try to open it before it disappears, something pops up which says “Windows cannot find “…” make sure you have typed the name correctly, and then try again.” When I try to open it directly from the archive (without extracting it first), it says “This app can’t run on your PC. To find a version for your PC, check with the software publisher.” I’m currently using Windows 8.1. I have tried opening it as administrator but it didn’t make a difference. Is this file broken or is it just incompatible with my PC? If it is could you possibly give me a link to something with might work? Thanks for reading, pls reply asap. 🙂

    • Try downloading again as it does work on Windows 8….. Maybe smartscreen is causing an issue or an antivirus….

    • Iustinian Teodoru

      1.Maybee your antivirus eat your file :”One M8.exe” and not exist ! First disable your antivirus !
      2. And on win8.1 still exist (on right click on file) : Troubleshooting compatibility , who is given possibility to run a file on another version of windows .
      Good luck on … hacking !
