Fastboot Mac Os X Download !FREE!
In fact, I now actually prefer to root Android devices on a Mac since it usually involves less headache. There are quite a few reasons behind this, including the fact that you can issue fastboot and ADB commands to a majority of the Android devices on a Mac without worrying about their drivers. On Windows though, it is impossible to execute a fastboot command without installing the drivers first as the PC will not be able to see the device itself.
Fastboot Mac Os X Download
Various guides on the Internet will recommend you to download the Android SDK manager to get ABDB running on your Mac. However, if you only want to use ADB/Fastboot to unlock the bootloader of your device and root it, there is no need to download the 400MB+ SDK.
This will download and install the very latest version ADB and fastboot files on your Mac. Depending on the speed of your Internet connection, this step can take anywhere between a few seconds to a few minutes.
Next time you need to run an ADB or fastboot command, simply open up terminal and execute the ADB or Fastboot command you want to run straightaway. There is no need to navigate to any particular folder or directory before doing so. A major advantage of following the above steps to get ADB and Fastboot on your Mac is that they will be updated to their latest version automatically.
ADB and Fastboot are command line tools that allow you to communicate with Android devices like the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The Android Debug Bridge, which is more commonly referred to as ADB, is used in most of the guides on this website to perform a variety of tasks on Fire TV devices. Fastboot is similar to ADB in that it is a command line tool, but it is primarily used to replace the entire operating system on an unlocked Android device. This guide will show you the simple process of setting up both ADB and fastboot on either a Mac running OS X or a Windows PC.

So fastboot doesn't list devices, whatever I try (sudo, or specifying -i and -p options), while ADB works just fine. I found vendor and product IDs via Mac OS X system information. ADB working seems to indicate that communication between my laptop and the phone does work fine.
From your first quoted block, I assume your phone is booted up normally (adb devices lists it as "device"). Fastboot cannot find it there. Try adb reboot fastboot, then check again when your device has booted up into fastboot mode.
Before attempting to flash a recovery image, you must have the lastest fastboot executable from the Android SDK (available here under the "Get just the command line tools" heading) installed on the host machine.

If this is the first time, you are dealing with Android Debug Bridge (adb) command-line tool, please follow the steps below based on your operating system. Please note that we can guarantee the success if you make sure that you follow each step with caution. There are two methods each for downloading and installing ADB and fastboot on Windows and Linux based on adding it to either the Operating System path or a specific directory.
In the first method, we will attempt to add the ADB and fastboot to the Windows Path so that you can access the tools from anywhere in the terminal. Both Method 1 and Method 2 makes the ADB and fastboot utterly available tools from anywhere.
If for any highly unlikely reason both the methods provided gets messed up so that you cannot use ADB and fastboot, these steps let you download and install ADB and fastboot in Windows. Note that this requires accessing the terminal from that directory for the process to work.
Just like the Windows methods, we provide you with two ways for Downloading and Installing ADB and fastboot tools on Linux. Similarly, the first method lets you access the tool from practically any directory of the terminal. This is done by adding ADB and fastboot to the Linux path.
As we have mentioned before, ADB and fastboot methods help the Android smartphone user to enhance their usage mechanisms in a lot of ways.

While the official way of installing ADB and Fastboot on your Windows PC involves downloading Android SDK which is huge in size and then extracting the tools from within the SDK folders. However, there is an easier and much quicker way to install Fastboot and ADB with ADB Installer which promises to install both tools under 15 seconds without installing the huge Android SDK.
Just like the Windows, there is an easy way to install ADB and Fastboot on Mac OS X as well, thanks to a script that automatically downloads and installs ADB and Fastboot. Simply follow these steps to properly install and setup ADB and Fastboot on your Mac:

Viewing in USBDeview mode, the serial number of my HTC device & all its informations shows when I click properties. My only problem is that it will not start. This is pretty funny to me, because the only reason I have downloaded Android SDK is so that I can take screenshots of my phone & possibly develop themes for it. Someone please help me!
Thanks for everything. I followed your instructions and can find my device when I use ADB devices.However, when I use command fastboot devices, it does nothing but goes back to the c:\androidSDK\tools.Does that mean fastboot is not recognizing my device?

Hi i am having problems getting windows virtual pc to put drivers on my phone. I used sdk and updated everything. When I go into cmd and type in the command lines it just says list of devices attached. I get no serial number. I then proceeded to download drivers manually for behold 2. I went in Device Manager and behold 2 isnt listed. There are yellow question marks where it says other devices> virtual pc integration system. If i click on the setup in the drivers folder it says installed successfully but still no recognization that behold 2 is connected. Also for clarification usddeview shows no drivers or devices hooked up to delete. Please help. Is there somewhere specific I am supposed to manually save drivers?
