NOTE THAT YOUR PHONE SHOULD NOT BE CONNECTED DURING THIS PROCESS
I already searched & set up the update folder so you don't have to do all the dirty work d:\
Ok Well I'm just going to make this quick and not really got through the basics like how to unzip things because if you don't know how to do that you probably shouldn't be trying to get s-off on your phone anyway so I'll just assume you already know how.
Step 1. open control panel select hardware and sound and open Device Manager with the administrative logo one the side.
Step 2. Near the top or somewhere on this list there's supposed to be a drop down that reads "adb devices, adb android, adb, android, adb drivers etc. Mine shows Android USB Devices it actually just varies based on computer I can't really go to the specifics of it but I'm sure you can find it.
Step 3. Select that dropdown menu and right click whatever shows (there should only be one thing) and then select Update Driver Software and choose the option that says Browse my computer for driver software and locate the htc drivers folder which should already be unzipped, select the whole folder and have the option to include subfolders checked. click next or whatever it says to finish
Step 3 Now you must remove your device from the Portable Devices dropdown menu to ensure all drivers are detected for the phone, to do this right click on HTC First and just select remove, wait until it's done. and now just reconnect your device and let all the drivers install and it should now be done!
Make sure you look at the screenshots I attached to make sure you don't accidentally remove or update something else also because that's where the drivers folder is an i'm pretty sure you'll need that
A reboot of the computer is recommended btw
Ask questions if you have any
