Problem entering DFU / rooting the Nest 2nd gen

Post by an.schall » Tue Mar 10, 2015 12:50 am

I own a Nest 2nd gen and I am having problems rooting the device. This is what I do:

1. Connect the display via USB with my host pc (ubuntu 14.04, 32 bit)
2. Run ./NestAttack-Linux.sh
3. Enter my password
4. Press down the display for 10-15 seconds
5. Nothings happens (Nest boots until the message is displayed "Please attach display to base board").

Obviously Nest is not entering DFU. Also lsusb does not show a device with the expected id.

How can I solve this?

I could solve to problem by using a shorter USB cable. After this I received an LIBUSB_ERROR_IO. This issue could be solved by connecting to different a USB port on my desktop pc. Initially, I was using the front USB ports, which did not work.
