So the phone is never recognized if I just plug the phone into the computer. No charging light, doesn't show up on computer. Tried 3 different cables and many usb ports that i know work. I have windows 8 so It almost always auto detects hardware and auto installs drivers. I deleted it from hardware and printers and downloaded the sony zperia z driver for windows 8 and it s a zip file. I tried extracting it and it only opens up as a bunch of random files. NO application. I have only installed the XZ dual boot recovery and root with restore v33. It only charges sometimes if I plug it in and reboot it. But it still doesn't show up as a device on my computer.
