I have seen many questions asking how to install universal naked drivers. Last week I received (loan) a windows computer and had the same issues. I decided to provide the info to help others.

Note: These drivers do work properly for the TF300T even though they may not state that exactly. Also if your tablet identifies as a TF201 it will still work properly.


Note: If you are on windows 8 and having problems please see the bottom of this post #1 for help! This info was provided by prototype7 please give him a thanks.


First some info. Windows thinks it should make the choices about drivers and is designed to keep us from choosing something that might cause problems. We need to maintain control through the process if we are to succeed.

Here are the choices I had to use to change my drivers and a link to the drivers.

windows-start - in search type device manager and return

You'll get a screen with some options on it after a few seconds
Click Troubleshoot
Advanced Options
Windows Startup Settings
Restart
You'll get a menu of options to choose from
Press the number on your keyboard for "Disable driver signature enforcement"
Now you can follow the guide without any issues, reboot again after the drivers are installed and you'll be good to go.

using this method you don't have to uninstall your current driver
if you deviate at any step windows will refuse to allow this change
Good Luck!

Hi,

first thanks for the thread (i believe it will help a lot of people)

I followed all the steps, but it still doesn't work...

I did a lot of research but i have not found the solution... When i use fastboot, it still "<waiting for device>".

Anyone have the same probleme ?

Thanks for the help.

EDIT: Fine it's my fault, the cmd line have to be with -i 0x0B05 option, without it, it doesn't work.

Thanks!

I don't know why some tablets require the tablet designation and others don't. For that reason we suggest everyone use them. It is a code assigned by google that designates the manufacture of the unit. On linux we have to declare them to avoid a permissions error but we don't have to add drivers.

I'm glad you got everything sorted.
