Fastboot support for Linux on Dell Venue 8

Fastboot support for Linux on Dell Venue 8

Hi, can you supply a fastboot binary that works with dell venue tablets? adb works just fine, lsusb even list the tablet in fastboot mode, but the fastboot binary does nothing, of course it can find and communicate with all my other androids via fastboot. Windows fastboot.exe has no problems communicating with the tablet.

Using the method SDC posted on XDA Developers, fastboot oem startftm from a windows computer, I can then boot into Linux and use adb commands just fine, while tablet is in this oem startftm mode, so clearly Linux sees the tablet while it's in fastboot mode, just the fastboot binary is unable to communicate with the tablet.

lsusb even shows the dell tablet in fastboot mode, yet only adb is able to communicate with the tablet, so we need a Linux fastboot binary that can see and communicate with dell tablets.

Thanks.

I forgot to update this thread, I built my own.
