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!

You are welcome, glad to know it making things easier.

I will make an auto root batch job once a recovery is made for the device. Shouldn't be too long...

I used to have one (TWRP) but because touch will be much harder (or impossible) on this device, TWRP isn't a viable recovery for SHIELD. Instead, it looks like we'll need to use CWM, the dpad, and the A and B buttons.

What's wrong with the touchscreen on the device? Or did you not know it had a multitouch screen? (I can't imagine a modern Android implementation without one, ick)
Motorola X Verizon Developer Edition - stock 4.2.2
Galaxy Nexus LTE on Verizon - CM 10.1 (retired)
Nexus 7 - stock 4.3
Nvidia Shield - stock 4.2

Nothing is wrong with the touchscreen, but its awkward to use when you have the controller attached to the screen. I'm very scared about the modding community for this device. It looks like the streaming might be broken by custom roms. That being said, I really want to root and put a custom rom on mine. We'll have to see how popular it gets here in the community.

The issue with the touchscreen is the driver. While it runs great in Android, it doesn't work in recovery, making a touch-based recovery a nightmare. Believe me, I already tried for a few days. I'm sure with enough time, I could get it working, but I didn't want to invest that much time with all the other things on my plate at the moment. I just don't expect recovery to come out this week with touch.

Thanks for the video, I was testing something for Nvidia today and did 10 re-install without the SSD RAID 0 i have and it was killing me.

Once you have SSD you cant go back and yes daughters are LOUD! I have one ... =)

I will probably post the video in the OP of all my UNDriver threads.
