[Q] Problem with the Unlock Bootloader

Right, I hope I am not being a total noob with this but here goes.

I got my HTC One V today, I plan to unlock bootloader and root my device.

So, following the bootloader stages, blah blah blah (at HTCDev).
And then, I get this: (< waiting for device > )
(Attached image 1)

So, I done some research, and it seemed to narrow down to me not having the right drivers. So I've done some driver research and so on, and installed a few. I also installed HTC Sync.

And then I got to this, when the device is turned on and plugged in through USB:

So, now I try to turn it off and enter the bootloader, follow the steps and so on, but I still get < waiting for device >. Also, if I got to device manager while in this mode I am presented with this:
(Attached image 3)

I have tried following some guides and steps to fix this but I'm getting nowhere.

Anyone think they could help me?

when using fastboot or adb make sure you have adb drivers from android sdk and htc drivers from htc sync and also close htc sync in your tray.

I am almost certain I have the ADB drivers and the HTC Drivers from HTC Sync. Although I am not so sure about the HTC Sync drivers. I downloaded and installed the program and then I exited it when I try and fastboot.

My device manager now says this when I go into the bootloader on my HTC One V.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

HI..check ckpv5's post...it is the link to the thread he created to unlock the boot loader...if you need right drivers install htc sync.....

Then put in bootloader and let it install..then wait for it in fastboot....after all drivers have been installed it will work.....

BUT BEFORE THAT YOU HAVE TO DELETE THAT UNKNOWN DEVICE AND RE-CONNECT YOUR DEVICE..

I have followed that thread about 5/6 times but still get waiting for device.

Installed and reinstalled HTC Sync about 4 times.

The drivers appear to be on my computer, yet I'm still getting waiting for device.

I assume you mean this driver: (attached image 1).

Yeah, its installed. Also, if I try and install this driver in fastboot mode on the bootloader it says the driver cannot be found. (attached image 2 & 3).

Try my files here: http://bit.ly/IwbRMu

It has Android SDK but the old version, you can skip that one if you want to.
It has Android USB driver and HTC usb driver. So on any unknown device, just point to the drivers folder and see whether it helps or not. After install, reboot your pc first.

Edit: It may be old version but it works great for my new Win7 PC at work that I receive today
