APX driver (Windows)?

Hi,

I want to try nvflash. I got the files from dropbox, and the Windows zip has a .inf file, but:

- that .inf looks like it's for an ADB driver, not APX, and

- the other files for the APX driver (dlls, etc.) are missing

I guess these are suppose to be part of the tetra sdk, but I can't find that either.

Does anyone know where to get that APX driver? Also should I be able to use both ADB and APX drivers on the same machine?

Thanks,
Jim

Hi,

I figured it out.

I had to download the froyo image MSI from:

http://tegradeveloper.nvidia.com/tegra/downloads

After I ran the MSI, the driver files were put on the system. I then plugged the Gtab in, power + vol-, and then nvflash worked.

The new location on the NVIDIA developers website is here:

http://developer.nvidia.com/tegra/devkit-250tango

Page down until you see Android 2.2 (Froyo) for Tegra 250 & Tango ONLY, and then click on the MSI link to the right of it.

Be aware, this is an updated version of the Nvidia SDK for the Tegra 250. If you're following instructions from previous posts on how to nvflash your gtab using the APX method, make sure you substitute tegra_froyo_20110207 anywhere you see tegra_froyo_20101105 in the instructions.

Also check out my "NVFlash USB Driver Solution" thread in Developer Forum.

There are three or four sources for getting the USB drivers without having to install the SDK.

bjrunn,

You will substitute the new Tegra file information as part of the USB driver install.

As an example, if you are following the nvflash instructions from the androidforums.com website below,

http://androidforums.com/gtablet-sup...ory-reset.html

In order to install the USB drivers, anywhere you see tegra_froyo_20101105 in the instructions, use tegra_froyo_20110207 in its place.

This is how I got my WIN64 to work:

Make sure you have the android SDK Installed: This is where I installed Android SDK: C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\extras\google\usb_driver\

C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\extras\google\usb_driver\amd64 DIR must have the following files
WdfCoInstaller01009.dll
winusbcoinstaller2.dll
WUDFUpdate_01009.dll

C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\extras\google\usb_driver\i386 DIR must have the following files
WdfCoInstaller01009.dll
winusbcoinstaller2.dll
WUDFUpdate_01009.dll

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\extras\google\usb_driver\"

in the above dir create a new file <NvidiaUsb.inf> open the file in notepad:

Cope and paste the content below in notepad <if the DLLS above are a different version modify the INF file content with your version>

Wink Nvidia Flash/APX Drivers
When I had to un-brick my tablet I used the fix from DroidPirate.com. It has the drivers for the APX loaded into a zip file and worked very smoothly for my restore.
