TWRP accepting `adb` connections but no `fastboot` connections

by Micha Wiedenmann   Last Updated November 08, 2018 21:11 PM

I can connect to TWRP (3.2.3-0) with adb but fastboot devices does not list any and fastboot continue (while my phone is booted into TWRP) only prints:

$ fastboot continue
< waiting for any device >

I can rule out a driver problem since I have used fastboot successfully with the same combination of phone, cable and PC.

You are confused about fastboot. It is not another adb. There is no fastboot server (in TWRP) which accepts connections. Rather it is a step/mode in the boot process of Android. Think of it as GRUB. You need to reboot your phone while the fastboot command is waiting for your device.
