Default [Solved] ADB device not found

Hi, I'm trying to go back to stock rom following this guide but I can't get adb to recognize my phone (even if I've already used adb in this pc to unlock the bootloader and flash the custom recovery). I'm on Liquid Smooth ROM and my pc has Windows 8.1.

I tried uninstalling motorola drivers and reinstalling again and uninstalling and letting windows install the drivers automatically but no luck either way (and USB debugging is activated in the phone).

When I access to the device manager in the pc it shows a warning sign on Motorola ADB Interface saying the controllers for that device are not installed, that the manufacturer is unknown and that there aren't compatible controllers for the device (I'm translating what the pic says for those who don't understand spanish xD). I tried to uninstall that Motorola ADB interface thing but it remains there.

What can I do?

SOLUTION: See last post.

You'll need to manually install the driver for the unknown devices. Point to your motorola driver folder.

Are you on CM11?

I had the same problem, tried Motorola USB Driver, Universal ADB driver, Google USB driver and also editing the USB.inf to match the hardwareID.. none of that worked until I set the USB computer connection to Camera (PTP)

Good luck!

That same thing happens to me, if I put it in camera mode it does work, the problem is that I need it to work in fastbood mode and it doesn't recognize my device there

EDIT: I've found the solution, I noticed I had two Motorola ADB Interface controllers, one in "Android Devices" and the other in unknown controllers. I went to the unknown one and imported the same certificate the upper one had and now it works (though I have two Motorola ADB Interface in android devices).

In fastboot mode, I made the USB work by using Koush's Universal ADB driver.
But if you are using Windows 8 or 8.1, you'll need to turn off the forced signature verification before you can install the drivers, since they are not signed.

Well... glad you got it..

Go to device manager, you should see a device called "Android Device" (IIRC). Right click to update device drivers, select device driver, manually search for one but then pick choose from a list. You should be able to see the right driver that is normally used.
