I have found that driver, and installed them. But I can't find the fastboot drivers.



Where can I find them?

I think the easiest way is to use flashtool to install the drivers (if in win 8 google installing unsigned drivers)

I already disabled unsigned driver installations My main machine is win7, but I'm out of town on business and stuck using my lappy which is win8.


What in the ****? It is going to take around 2 hours to download from these **** hosts... Haven't these guys ever heard of Google Drive, Dropbox, SkyDrive or even Mega?

Ffs.

Unfortunately:


Is ok though, I'm sticking a folder on my gDrive that contains all the files/tools needed in order to do this. It'll be a little bit before everything is there, but the folder is located at: https://drive.google.com/folderview?...Tg&usp=sharing

I'm also adding all the aosp sounds for people who are staying on gpe but still want to access all the sounds available on aosp (Stock gpe selection is pathetic).

It'll be probably at least 3 or 4 hours before everything is there though.

I may have just had a weird experience, but I think FlashTool is able to use drivers without them actually being installed. At least the adb ones were not actually installed when I tried to do logcat , I had to go through device manager to update drivers then navigate to FlashTool folder and install them.

Apparently flashtool is on github, which makes their choice of hosts even more fishy considering that you can host the downloads on github itself... but looky what I found here: https://github.com/Androxyde/Flashto.../FASTBOOT/Sony

All necessary files have been added to the Google Drive folder here:

I may write a little bit better and more detailed guide for people in my specific position once I have cm11 up and running.
