I am happy to release my Universal Naked Driver. This is to allow ADB, Fastboot & APX interfaces to work without installing any package much less multiples packages for users with multiple devices. Yes you can just install them and uninstall right away but why bother?

I was annoyed that I couldnt use my Transformer Prime and Galaxy Nexus without having versions and packages trip over each other. My previous post for the Sensation & Galaxy Nexus was helpful so I thought I would bring to XDA the newest Android driver available from source (which they call 4.0) and make it start talking.



Warning: Uninstall any previous driver package's you may have installed and also manually remove drivers by attaching your phone and going to Windows device manager and right click the entry for your phone and select "Uninstall" on the next prompt make sure to select "Delete the driver software for this device" then hit OK and reboot before installing these drivers

Code:
Google Nexus Devices ADB & Fastboot
Samsung Devices ADB & Fastboot
Asus Devices ADB, Fastboot & APX
HTC Devices ADB & Fastboot
Code:
Windows 8 Instructions

How to Disable Driver Signature Enforcement in Windows 8:

From the Metro Start Screen, open Settings (move your mouse to the bottom-right-corner of the screen and wait for the pop-out bar to appear, then click the Gear icon).
Click ‘More PC Settings’.
Click ‘General’.
Scroll down, and click ‘Restart now’ under ‘Advanced startup’.
Wait a bit.
Click ‘Troubleshoot’.
Click ‘Advanced Options’
Click ‘Windows Startup Settings’
Click Restart.
Enjoy!

Your welcome, this was a semi-confusing download at first every package I found just looked like a mess or didn't work with fastboot for some reason.

Then I installed PDAnet and that worked right away but I wanted to use the offical Samsung drivers.

Enjoy!

Just wanted to mention that the .dlls in this driver package seem to be more recent (1.9 vs. 1.7):

I used these as well. None of the Samsung driver packages would work with fastboot on my xp x64 machine. Someone had modified the adb source drivers to work with the GNex and these work great.

adb = Android Debug Bridge! only use on running Android system or recovery!

in bootloader use "fastboot"

use "fastboot devices" instead of "adb devices"

Thanks but these are not the Samsung drivers which is why the version number is so different. I extracted these from the most recent package from Samsung that I found.

That being said the drivers you linked will probably work fine but are more generic.
