Getting platform tools working like I'm used to?
#11
No, I haven't. That's not anything I've come across for this device. Normally on windows, mac, or other linux machines it works fine, but that is using platform tools downloaded from Google.

Then in order for fastboot to work I have to type $(which) fastboot. Which doesn't work exactly right because fastboot reboot recovery just rebooted the phone to the os. Additionally I couldn't find a folder for the tools though I thought it would have been /use/bin. What I normally do is keep my platform tools folder on my desktop then I drop my files I want to flash in that folder so all I would do for example is type fastboot boot twrp.img. So I saw Arch wiki had some stuff on platform tools but honestly it's above me at this point. Any pointers, easy instructions or general help I can use? Thanks.

Forgot to say, I'm on Manjaro.
I tried this rabbit hole before and gave up. What version of Android are you using and what version of the of Android tools are you using? When trying to build the latest when using aur, it fails as it's not meant for arm64. If I just install from regular repo it's an older version. While adb may work fastboot may work for some things but flashing OS or recovery while on anything Android that's July 2019 or newer  (29.0.2) will probably fail.

My phone is on android 10 right now. If you meant the android tools I'm on it's 30.0.3-1. The only issue I've come across is the fastboot reboot recovery command just reboots into system instead of recovery. I perform most operations on the phone through recovery and not normally through adb, but there's just somethings you'll need that for. When I get  time I'll try oem lock and oem unlock and see if there are any issues.

Nice it's been updated!! I too am on android 10 (July patch) I should have tried again before posting I apologize. The last time I tried was back in June when I created thread trying to find updated tools. Please update us when you try unlocking commands.
