Hi there

I have seen some posts where users are having difficulty connecting Xperia L to their PC or ADB. Therefore, I am writing this guide to help you all.

The guide was prepared using Windows 7 Ultimate but should work with Windows XP and Windows 8.

Firstly, Sony uses a different driver for their Xperia devices and therefore, sometimes you are unable to install drivers for your devices especially for ADB commands.

IF YOU ARE LUCKY
There are few ways to get around to install drivers for your device. The most convenient and easy is you plug in your device and wait for automatic detection of your device. Make sure you have USB connected as MTP in MY XPERIA in SETTINGS of your phone. The device drivers would be automatically installed by Windows update.

METHOD
If suppose you can not install your drivers, connect your xperia and then on your PC, go to My computer > Properties>Device Manager.
You should see an undetected hardware with a yellow exclamation mark over it. Open it and click on update my drivers. Then choose GOOGLE DRIVERS by choosing hard-drive. This should install the drivers for you. If this doesnot work. Try the attachment with the post where the drivers are modified to work with Sony Xperia Devices.
Follow the same steps but this time choose the attachment folder to search for drivers. It might say, the drivers are not verified. Just Ignore it and carry on installing them. You will need to unzip these files.

IF suppose you do not see any exclamation mark while you connect your xperia. Just go to control panel and add new hardware. Select, I will choose my device and then install from hard-disk. Select the folder where you have unzipped the files and you are good to go. The name of new hardware is not important as windows will read the drivers files and install drivers for Xperia.

This will install all drivers for your device. If there are two or more drivers while installing them. Redo the steps and install all of them individually.

Suppose your ADB still doesnot work, then

FOR ADB DRIVERS :
Download the ADB Universal Drivers and connect your device. Then hit install. The ADB drivers will be automatically detected and installed.

Further, if these tricks fail, you can delete the unknown driver from your control panel and then try finding it again by using refresh button(scan for new hardware changes) in device manager.

Another trick is to click on unknown drivers and delete them. Connect your phone and restart your phone. Then scan for new hardware in device manager. The drivers should be installed for your device.

If still there are some problems, I will try to help you out.

UPDATE :
Use flashtool drivers to install adb/fastboot/flashboot drivers. This is the most simplest and easiest method I have come across lately.

Simply download flashtool

http://www.flashtool.net/index.php

Go to folder where you have downloaded it. Usually C:/flashtool/drivers.

Select the drivers for your particular device. I use universal for all three types of drivers. It is helpful to boot into fastboot/Flashtool before installing the drivers but not necessarily.

Good Luck

Did you try the attached drivers ?

I am just wondering you might hadnot turned USB debugging or disabled MTP mode or something you might have done to your kernel/ROM that might have changed the environment of your phone which factory reset reverted back. These drivers are NOT the drivers for connecting your device to your PC. These are used when you are unlocking your bootloader or working with ADB/fastboot commands.

Thanks for your contribution about how it worked for you and it might help others who might have a problem!

I had tried every possible driver haha! Also had everything like USB Debugging etc turned ON, I guess it might have been some app I had installed. Anyways now I have rooted it successfully.

Thanks a lot for your help.

For a second when I looked at your images, I was just baffled. THOSE MANY UNKNOWN DEVICES! That can't be right you know.

There must be only ONE unknown device that ought to be installed as mentioned above in my post.

Do you see these devices when you connect your phone to your PC or those unknown devices are already there?

Have you tried windows update to fix it?

Tell me more about why you see so many devices.

If suppose, they are already there, just see which device comes up when you connect your phone and try installing drivers for that particular device.

Also, i suggest just go for add a new device and then select hard disk and then install drivers which are attached. I hope that fixes your problem.

REMEMBER your device must be connected when you are trying to install the drivers
