Hi everybody

I would like to unlock the bootloader of my ARC S , 4.0.2.A.0.42, sim unlock factory and with a generic fw.

I used the tuto of sony ericsson , asking me to replace a file in C:/AndroidSDK/extras/google/usb_drivers , something like that.

So i replaced the file. Pressed menu button and plugged the phone.

I have the choice to select the driver, indicate the folder and it begins to install and suddenly stop each time, saying me :

"Windows met a problem during the installation of the driver for your device"
Windows has found a driver for your device, but met a problem trying to install it"

Android ADB Interface

Specified file is unfound

I have the fastboot.exe file, adb.exe and all the others files in my sdk..

Please help me to solve this problem

Not sure what drivers you found, but the ones from this thread worked fine for me.
Just extract the zip somewhere and when prompted for a driver location, point it to that folder, don't complicate things by messing around with file swaps in the Android SDK folder.

Also, that guide is pretty much all you need, to get your bootloader unlocked.
