Talking [TUT] Dummies guide: updating HTC USB Sync Drivers

First of all you will need to download the drivers attached in this post and extract them. Remember where you extract them to!

The main reason for updating these drivers is so that you can use USPL or MTTY. USPL is an alternative to HSPL and is used for flashing roms. MTTY is used for retrieving information from the HTC bootloader as well as setting certain things. One of the more popular uses for MTTY is to clear the rom update error code in the bootloader after a failed flash.

The drivers that come with Windows for the HTC Bootloader are incompatible with USPL and MTTY. Once you update the driver with this guide you will be able to use USPL and MTTY.

Now that you have the drivers downloaded and extracted you need to know which version of Windows you have.

If you have Windows XP go to post 2

If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 go to post 3

MOD EDIT

If you have previously updated drivers and successfully flashed a rom before you do not need to update drivers again. If 'usb' is not displayed at bottom of bootloader when connected to pc, simply reboot, press F8-key & select option to ignore the signature. Phone should now state 'usb' in bootloader to enable you to flash rom

Post Windows XP

Use this method only if you have Windows XP!
  • Before you start this, put your phone into its bootloader and plug it into your computer via the USB cable. Your phone should show USB at the bottom of the bootloader screen. It is very important not to skip this!
  • If you have ActiveSync installed, start at step WXP1. Otherwise skip to step WXP4.
WXP1 - Downloads
  • (WXP1a) Drivers.zip
  • (WXP1b) Extract each item to its own folder
WXP2 - Open ActiveSync and click File, Connection Settings.



WXP3 - Uncheck Allow USB connections and click OK and then close ActiveSync.



WXP4 - Press Start menu, Run, type in devmgmt.msc, and press OK. Or you can press and hold the Windows and R keys. This also brings up the Run dialog.



WXP5 - In the Device Manager locate Windows CE USB Devices and expand it. Double-click on HTC USB Sync.



WXP6 - In the HTC USB Sync Properties click the Driver tab and then Update Driver.



WXP7 - In the Hardware Update Wizard, click the No, not this time radio button and then click Next.



WXP8 - Continuing in the Hardware Update Wizard, click the Install from a list or specific location radio button and then click Next.



WXP9 - Continuing in the Hardware Update Wizard, click the Don't search. I will choose the driver to install radio button and then click Next.



WXP10 - Continuing in the Hardware Update Wizard, click the Have Disk button.



WXP11 - In the Install From Disk dialog, click the Browse button.



WXP12 - In the Locate File dialog, browse to where you downloaded the driver. Select the 32-bit folder if you use the 32-bit edition of Windows, or select the 64-bit folder if you use the 64-bit edition. Select wceusbsh.inf and click the Open button.



WXP13 - Back in the Hardware Update Wizard, select the HTC USB Sync and click Next.



WXP14 - Continuing in the Hardware Update Wizard, you will see an error: This device cannot start. (Code 10)

This is totally normal, do not worry. Click Finish.




WXP15 - The Device Manager will show an exclamation point next to the HTC USB Sync. Unplug the USB cable from your phone. You will notice the bootloader on your phone change from USB to Serial.



WXP16 - The Device Manager will no longer show the HTC USB Sync. Plug the USB cable back in to your phone. You will notice the bootloader on your phone change from Serial to USB. The Device Manager will now show the HTC USB Sync as fully functional. You are done!

Post Windows Vista / Windows 7

Use this method only if you have Windows Vista or Windows 7!
  • Before you start this, put your phone into its bootloader and plug it into your computer via the USB cable. Your phone should show USB at the bottom of the bootloader screen. It is very important not to skip this!
  • If you have the 64-bit edition of Windows you must disable digital driver signing before you continue on! To do this, restart your computer. After the initial BIOS screen but before the Windows bootup splash screen, spam press F8 until you see a Windows menu. If you do not get a menu and end up in Windows you pressed F8 at the wrong time. Try it again until you get the menu. In the menu select Disable Driver Signature Enforcement or Disable Digital Driver Signing (depending on your version of Windows). Windows will finish booting up and you can continue on.
  • If you have Windows Mobile Device Center installed, start at step WV1. Otherwise skip to step WV4.
WV1 - Downloads
  • (WV1a) Drivers.zip
  • (WV1b) Extract each item to its own folder
WV2 - Open Windows Mobile Device Center, hover over Mobile Device Settings and click Connection Settings.



WV3 - Uncheck Allow USB connections and click OK and then close Windows Mobile Device Center.



WV4 - Press Start menu, Run, type in services.msc, and press OK. Or you can press and hold the Windows and R keys. This also brings up the Run dialog.



WV5 - Make sure both the Windows Mobile 2003-based device connectivity and Windows Mobile-based device connectivity services show Started. If they are not, start them.




WV6 - Press Start menu, Run, type in devmgmt.msc, and press OK. Or you can press and hold the Windows and R keys. This also brings up the Run dialog.




WV7 - In the Device Manager locate Mobile Devices and expand it. Double-click on HTC USB Sync.



WV8 - In the HTC USB Sync Properties click the Driver tab and then Update Driver.



WV9 - In the Update Driver Software Wizard, click the Browse my computer for driver software button.



WV10 - Continuing in the Update Driver Software Wizard, click the Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer button.



WV11 - Continuing in the Update Driver Software Wizard, click the Have Disk button.



WV12 - In the Locate File dialog, browse to where you downloaded the driver. Select the 32-bit folder if you use the 32-bit edition of Windows, or select the 64-bit folder if you use the 64-bit edition. Select wceusbsh.inf and click the Open button.



WV12 - Back in the Update Driver Software Wizard, select the HTC USB Sync and click Next.



WV14 - Continuing in the Update Driver Software Wizard, you will see a message: The hardware you installed will not work until you restart your computer.

This is not true at all, do not restart. Click Finish.




WV15 - The Device Manager will show an exclamation point next to the HTC USB Sync. Unplug the USB cable from your phone. You will notice the bootloader on your phone change from USB to Serial.



WV16 - The Device Manager will no longer show the HTC USB Sync. Plug the USB cable back in to your phone. You will notice the bootloader on your phone change from Serial to USB. The Device Manager will now show the HTC USB Sync as fully functional. You are done!
