Talking Having trouble with USB dropping?? - This may be the solution

Hi all,

I was having a strange problem with my USB dropping out when using the NEWER recovery (TWRP and Philz). Which meant I couldn't push files via ADB or Sideload. Here is my solution....

Before starting

I am using Windows 7

Download Google USB driver

Make sure you have TWRP 2.7.1.1 loaded as your recovery

You may have slightly different devices show up maybe, but this is what mine showed...

Open device manager

Plug phone in and power up to bootloader

Device manager should show 'Android Device' or similar

Open recovery

**This is where my USB was dropping out**

Make sure TWRP 2.7.1.1 loads

Look at device manager and should show 'One Mini' with a yellow exclamation mark

I tried updating the drivers automatically and browsing to the Google USB folder that we downloaded above but just kept saying 'device driver loading failed'.

The only way I found worked was

Right click 'One Mini' and update driver

Browse my computer for driver software

Let me pick from a list of device drivers

If you have Android device listed click that, if not choose Portable device.

Click 'Have disk' and locate the Google USB Driver folder and should be able to load the .inf file.

Click from the list ADB USB device and click ok.

This should load your device and install properly.

You shoud now be able to use ADB and Sideload in Recovery now.


Let me know if this works or not as there are a couple of bits that I can't replicate as the driver is already there!
