Checking/Fixing Motorola Drivers

open Windows Device Manager
Motorola device

if you see a yellow triangle like this
select uninstall, disconnect, usb data cable, reconnect
may need to reinstall drivers, or manually select Drivers


Manually selecting Drivers

Low Battery Options

  • What is a Fastboot Cable
  • Video
  • Where can I buy one?
  • How can I make one?
  • Will it be compatible with my device?
  • Fastboot Cable Pinout
  • MacGyver Method

What is a Fastboot Cable
Factory Cable, Fastboot Cable, and Motorola Programing Cable are all the same thing.
The usb cable that came with the device , is just a stock usb data cable.
With a fastboot cable, Power (+) from pin 1, is moved to the normally unused pin 4.
Many Motorola Devices are hardwired to bypass the battery, and power the device directly from pin 4.
"So you flashed your phone and now it thinks the battery is dead (even though it's not) and it won't let you flash it again to fix it? Or, your battery really is dead and you don't have a way to charge it because your phone is soft-bricked and won't charge the battery. What do you do? With this cable you don't even need a battery in your phone." - By Team Black Hat​

Where To Buy

Make your own (not recommended)

Compatibility
Some Devices that Can use with a Factory/Fastboot Cable, include but not limited to:

Xoom, Atrix, Droid X, Droid 2, Droid 2 Global, Droid Pro, Droid Pro Global, Droid 1,
V9m, Napoleon, Kindle Fire, Droid Charge, Droid Razr, Droid Bionic, Droid 3..

Note: Some Devices like the Amazon Kindle Fire are not powered by the Fastboot cable,
but are forced into Fastboot Mode which will allow Flashing Firmware

Fixing MTP drivers

This may not work, if it did for you, please let me know.


1st Option:
Update Windows Media Player
I am having Windows XP SP3 and I was experiencing the same USB MTP installation failure, I updated my Windows Media Player and it fixed the problem. The option in Windows Media Player Help->Check for updates was not working, so I downloaded Media Player from Microsoft webiste and installed it and after that driver is now working fine.
2nd Option:
What MTP Drivers should look like for a XT907, on a PC with Windows 7/64

Using Hash Checksums

[How to] Verify that your download is complete with MD5/SHA-1 Hash Checksums
many devs post md5 checksum with rom link, use it

if both MD5 and SHA-1 are posted you need only verify one
if it was not posted, download again until you get same md5 twice

video by @Tomsgt

https://youtu.be/P-tNyul-iOQ

use one of these

Why should you verify your download?
The file that you downloaded, may not have downloaded completely, even if you have very good internet, the file packets pass through several servers, 5-20 maybe even more.
Most files for most people will download complete, but unless you compare checksums you just don't know.

What is a MD5 checksum?
"MD5 Codes: MD5 stands for Message Digest version 5. The MD5 algorithm takes a file (the “message”) of any size, and reduces it down to a code that looks like this: “ac30ce5b07b0018d65203fbc680968f5″ (the “digest”). The brilliant thing about the MD5 algorithm is that if the message changes by so much as a single byte, it will produce a completely different digest. Think of MD5s as fingerprints for files.
The MD5 algorithm has many uses. Foremost is the ability to validate that when a data file is transmitted from point A to point B, it arrives intact, without distortion. This is done by calculating the MD5 string that corresponds to the original file (at point A), calculating the MD5 again using the copy of the file (at point B), and then comparing the two MD5 strings."
-http://www.codejacked.com/using-md5sum-to-validate-the-integrity-of-downloaded-files/

Some Other Checksum versions are SHA-1, SHA-256, and SHA-512

Sites like https://mega.co.nz have end to end encryption, so verifing checksums should not be necessary.

MD5 Checker

Download
md5.exe Mega (Preferred) - XDA - Dev-Host - CNET [TOOL] MD5 Checker (create/compare checksum)

Directions
  1. Open md5 checker
  2. Copy checksum from source, usually the files downloaded page. (ex. 4ee3969a9f09117f661742470aaba379)
  3. Paste md5 for file
  4. Browse for file you are checking (ex. cm-10-20130113-UNOFFICIAL-daytona.zip)
  5. If codes match you are good, if no match re-download file

Firmware Downloads:

...
If anyone has issues with DL speeds please consider purchasing a one month Filefactory premium account by following my referral link here: http://www.filefactory.com/refer/m-NRHYUov-Vxks1QQ0d75g~~

It helps YOU and it helps ME keep all firmware on one server with unlimited bandwidth allocation.

I personally have 327Mbps(40MB/s) DL sppeds from my ISP but I have found Filefactory maxes out around 115Mbps(14MB/s) DL speeds.

Just something to consider when measuring the value of our beloved devices.

Of course creation of any and all mirrors is also welcome and uninhibited.

Can't Uninstall

I've installed the 64 bit version of this and get a KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE (blue screen) when trying to uninstall. I've tried repairing and reinstalling without any luck. Could you help me understand the registry mods and files associated with this so I can manually remove it?
Thanks!

Version 6.4.0 (Motorola_End_User_Driver_Installation_6.4.0) (2015)
