        nope, doesn’t works, i tried it and the same problem…device only connects in FLASH MODE not in FASTBOOT mode

            yup, i have tried this before, i think this is the problem in windows 8.1 and fastboot drivers, as 8.1 doesn’t supports unsigned drivers or something (i have searched a lot for it)
            i think i have to install Windows 7 too, no other solution.:P
