Little tutorial to help everyone out

download: https://dl-ssl.google.com//android/r...er_windows.zip



Some pictures, step by sptep to help!
PUT YOUR PHONE ON FASTBOOT MODE AND PLUG IT TO YOUR PC! (truned off, press vol+ and power button)



READ THIS:

- at step 5 you have to browse your files and select the "usb_drivers" folder that you just downloaded then choose "Let me pick...".

- at step 6 it appear "asus android device" in my case but DONT care about that. Select "all devices". The next step is the important part.

- at step 7 click on have disk and browse to your usb_drivers folder and select "android_winusb.inf"




After this you can use commands to root, flash new recoveries, and go back to completly stock using bootloader mode on your device.

or you could just boot your device into download mode and plug it in....no downloading from any SHADY file hosts that force you to use their downloader, and no confusing instructions....boot to download mode, plug your phone in, then wait.

Hi I am getting trouble moving beyond step 5 this is what i get :

Windows 8 is not able to install Android 1.0 as it was not able to find the drivers. I also included the subfolders but its still giving me the same error.

Any suggestions to go around this?

Hello, I have the same problem as eddyed911, I get the same message when trying to install the drivers by following your procedure: "Windows could not find the driver software for your device."

To answer your question for him, I did unzip the file. Any ideas?
