In the dir of the fastboot program I do 'sudo ./fastboot getvar serial' which just sits at <waiting for devices>.
What am I doing wrong?!
mcp1999: You downloaded wrong fastboot. Download yifanlu's
But you need to compile this because I couldn't find any binary and I haven't MAC. Also I don't know, how is it with USB drivers on MAC, because for example Linux doesn't need any.
If you have bootcamp or what's the name for "Windows on MAC", you can download fastboot for Windows, which can be found on this forum.
