Hey guys, I was having some issues with the computer crashing with usbxhci errors, which sounded like driver errors so I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the usb drivers, (using asus gaming laptop with usb 3.0, windows 8 64 bit), was still blue screening when I entered download mode, what ended up working was using the download mode technique using the usb slot on my nintendo wii, unplugging it and plugging into my computer as it was in download mode. The problem I am having now, is its not wiping, adb wipe just enters recovery, so i'm wondering if theres a way i can wipe using total commander? I tried renaming the /data folder but its read-only, so i'm not sure what else to try.
edit: I wasn't able to get into factory reset using volume down and power, but for some reason now it worked. looks good now, thanks.

Also found some seemingly more stable intel drivers for any Windows 8 users out there having this problem. Check out http://plugable.com/2012/12/01/windo...st-controllers
