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!

Does this version include support for the ASUS TF300 and TF700?

Thanks!

I can't get this installed for my HTC One.

I uninstalled every USB driver I had installed. Plugged my Galaxy 8 back in, and updated one of the drivers to use these after downloading.
I tried ADB on My Galaxy 8 and it worked.

No matter what I try to remove, and install, or update the drivers for the HTC one I can't get it to go.
It says "the folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device. if the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with windows for x64-based systems.

Any advice?

Thanks

I just manually install the appropriate driver (adb and fastboot for the respective devices dected in each mode) from the android SDK and ignore the warnings about it not being designed for this device. It works perfectly. I've done this with every android phone I've owned. Are there any benefits to doing this vs that?

That will work too, Universal Naked Driver helps with a few aspects:

1) East to find and download

2) SDK Drivers will not work with APX Tegra devices, these do!

2) Works with over 250+ devices

3) Nothing needs to be installed ever such as *.exe's or even the SDK.

4) These are becoming a standard on Windows as they are integrated in most root / tool kits as well, racking in well over a million downloads



Most people will not even want to install the SDK, then Java, etc...


Hope this helps

I'm going to try this, seeing as how this universal driver did not work, and no one replied to my message.
