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!

There always has been more then 2-3 threads for the drivers so this is not new from me.

It also allows for promotion as people are still discovering the drivers. With all the versions I have released and all the autoroot kits on XDA that use these drivers the downloads are over 2 millions downloads and counting.

Once tested well I will update my other threads. =)

Correct it allows to me to roll it out to a smaller userbase with a little control, then I update all threads with new version.

Additionally a good amount of Android autoroot kits rely on my updates and I like to be careful. I do not want to fix whats not broken.

Windows2000 is not listed.
Do the drivers work for Win2000 too?

Usually you wouldn´t find me asking something like this, but my hyper-fast supermachine at work does run on this legendary OS

Since mass storage mode doesn´t work / I didn´t find it to activate....I still look out for a way to mount the nexus5 to that crap thing.

These are based off the newest Google drivers from the SDK, first most they allow anybody to download them and simply unzip the drivers without the need to install the SDK or Java, no EXE's or installations hence the "naked" part.

Secondly and most important these work with over 300 different Android devices as of today. It allows people with multiple devices to not have to install anything on their computer this driver will allow those 300 devices to communicate with fastboot and adb. If you service a friends Android your good to go, if you have multiple devices you are good to go.

These also work with APX devices which is a special flash mode for Nvidia Tegra devices... all in one little zip.

Hope this helps

Sorry I have not tested it but feel free to give it a whirl, these will not harm your machine in any way or form. =)

Your drivers work like a charm, as usual (old asus transformer prime time).

Thanks!
