Downloaded the latest version here:

http://spflashtools.com/linux/sp-flash-tool-v5-1724-linux

Have had adb working for a long time.

Have cdc_acm module loaded.

In dialout and uucp groups.

Program can't see phone.

Messages from /var/log/messages:

Code:

Jul 24 23:38:21 system kernel: usb 1-1.2.2.2: new high-speed USB device number 3 using ehci-pci
Jul 24 23:38:22 system kernel: cdc_acm 1-1.2.2.2:1.1: ttyACM0: USB ACM device
Jul 24 23:38:24 system kernel: usb 1-1.2.2.2: USB disconnect, device number 3


For some reason, the device is shown as "disconnected" (it is still plugged in) after only two or three seconds.

What is the benefit of that tool compared to dev-util/android-tools?

I have android-tools installed, of course. Most sites (even very technical ones) always give instructions that use other programs, such as Heimdall or SP Flash Tools. I believe their advantage is to work with every partition on the phone, but I am far from an expert on this.
