I am happy to release my Universal Naked Driver. This is to allow ADB, Fastboot & APX interfaces to work without installing any package much less multiples packages for users with multiple devices. Yes you can just install them and uninstall right away but why bother?

I was annoyed that I couldnt use my Transformer Prime and Galaxy Nexus without having versions and packages trip over each other. My previous post for the Sensation & Galaxy Nexus was helpful so I thought I would bring to XDA the newest Android driver available from source (which they call 4.0) and make it start talking.



Warning: Uninstall any previous driver package's you may have installed and also manually remove drivers by attaching your phone and going to Windows device manager and right click the entry for your phone and select "Uninstall" on the next prompt make sure to select "Delete the driver software for this device" then hit OK and reboot before installing these drivers

Code:
Google Nexus Devices ADB & Fastboot
Samsung Devices ADB & Fastboot
Asus Devices ADB, Fastboot & APX
HTC Devices ADB & Fastboot

Code:

How to Disable Driver Signature Enforcement in Windows 8:

Click ‘More PC Settings’.
Click ‘General’.
Scroll down, and click ‘Restart now’ under ‘Advanced startup’.
Wait a bit.
Click ‘Troubleshoot’.
Click ‘Advanced Options’
Click ‘Windows Startup Settings’

Enjoy!

Your welcome, this was a semi-confusing download at first every package I found just looked like a mess or didn't work with fastboot for some reason.

Then I installed PDAnet and that worked right away but I wanted to use the offical Samsung drivers.

Enjoy!

adb = Android Debug Bridge! only use on running Android system or recovery!

in bootloader use "fastboot"

use "fastboot devices" instead of "adb devices"

got the drivers to work in XP

I removed all USB drivers from the XP and started to reinstall drivers as needed. Now it works in XP, thanks.

Thanks but these are not the Samsung drivers which is why the version number is so different. I extracted these from the most recent package from Samsung that I found.

That being said the drivers you linked will probably work fine but are more generic.

Those drivers are modified from the ADB source drivers that are downloaded by the SDK to support the GNex in fastboot. I havent tried your download yet but i installed the full 1.4.8.0 .exe package i downloaded from Samsung. Those worked except for fastboot which this download worked for me on XP x64. This phone was a PITA to get fastboot working on my laptop.

Anywhere, then when Windows asks where the drivers are point it to the folder where you extracted them to

Correct I had the same issue, when modifying the *.inf I was able to get them working with ADB. Give them a whirl when you get a chance and let me know what you think.

*EDIT* These are not fully working with fast-boot yet but I update as soon as possible.

Where do I unzip the files to?

Any where but in your device manager you will find your phone with no driver, just right click "Update Driver" and point it to where you unzipped it.

It will install the driver for you.

Just wanted to mention that the .dlls in this driver package seem to be more recent (1.9 vs. 1.7):
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4174784/usb_driver.zip

Hello I understand what you mean by 1.7 vs. 1.9 now ;)

**Update**

I have found the fastboot issue and will update v2 soon I just tested on a fwe system with no prior drivers working with ADB and fastboot.

The first set of drivers did not work with fastboot as an FYI. v2 will be the same files just the *.inf will be updated.

Should have it up in a few.

    It might be a good idea to note in the OP to disable Signed Driver Enforcement in Windows 8.
    HTML:
    bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
    bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON
