so maybe fastboot in recovery could be achieved with that kind of method? i'm going to buy sony s, then i try to help btw someone said that the tablet is recognized with recovery but there were no drivers found? maybe the drivers for fastboot should be modified to install correctly?

--edit:

I dont see the .android folder under
/data/data/berserker.android.apps.sshdroid/home
even I did ls -la
Waht is the path? Can someone give me the path? Thanks,

ok since path did not exist, i created .android directory and corresponding file. and added 0x54c. However still it is not recognized by "adb devices" command. any hint? Thanks,

Well I have followed the Window steps here and have got the driver to load ok but adb refuses to list the device in when I run "adb devices"? Any one any clues? I've uninstalled the driver and tried different USB ports, restarted the adb server... but no joy :(

Working! I checked again and the adb_usb.ini file was missing the 0x54c entry!

Can't list the tab into "adb devices".
0x54c is in adb_usb.ini (In c:/Users/<name>/.android/

I'm not so sure if I did the android_winusb.inf thing right though, as Xotusblack mentioned something, and I can't really put my finger on where to place the >> ;.

I'd be glad to help for dev testing purposes though :]

I followed this guide, which seemed to work: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=17624941

Only difference is that instead of the Sony Tablet P and S directly, it's now supporting every device with a Tegra 2 CPU.
That, and I specifically pointed the failed driver to android_winusb.inf.

Other then that, awaiting a dev god
