I need someone who is running a win 7 64 bit to try this method of getting the drivers installed please. My machines are already setup and working, but I'm trying to help those of you still having trouble.

into your c:/windows/system32/drivers/ folder

into your adk/tools/ directory


Boot the device into recovery mode, and connect the device to your machine over USB.
  • Navigate to Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Observe that the ADB device is listed as a USB Mass Storage Device.
  • Right-click USB Mass Storage Device and select Uninstall. Windows then prompts you with a "New Hardware Found Wizard" message. If Windows doesn't prompt you, you can manually re-detect devices by selecting Action > Scan for hardware changes.
  • Install the USB driver included in usb-drivers.zip that you put into your adk/tools directory.

Restart your machine and then put the phone into recovery mode and see if it's working.

There should be a device at the top of device manager called Android USB Device, under it (expand tree) there should be HTC Bootloader

See the screen shots for more info.

Hey I found this post from DroidForums.
I tried this method and I'm going to paste my findings from the thread over there....

I'm trying this tip right now. So far, no luck.
What I'm noticing is that I have the ADB Interface>HTC Bootloader listed in my decive manager upon boot (main recovery menu, just after volume down/power).
Then as soon as I hit bootloader, in device manager, the ADB goes away and I get a 'Android 1.0' listed under 'Other Devices' which does not have a driver.
Then I click down/hit power to get into 'recovery' and my Device Manger lists nothing.

Windows7 64bit

Going to try to loop.bat method now.

Loop.bat method did the same thing. It seems like once I enter recovery my phone loses all communication with my laptop.

Ok R1Lover I did as you said and I get this when I try to install the driver I downloaded from you and put in sdk/tools folder "the folder you specified does not contain a driver for your device. If it does contain a driver make sure it is designed to work with windows 64 bit based systems". In other words it won't let me use the 32 bit driver.

@ Randy - I pulled those files from my 64 bit machine... so I'm not sure what's up...

@ Shamus - Are you using the fastboot method? where you hold down the optical button in the bottom middle of the phone in order to get to recovery?

You also have to follow the instructions on my other how too thread in order to try this. When your in recovery and after you have tried to install the update.zip.... then this should work (I'm hoping)

Very odd that those drivers work on some 64 bit and not others....once again MS bites us in the butt ;) Thanks for giving it a try for us though!

The recovery method I'm using is the one on the 'How to root in 10 minutes video'.
Optical button+power/power button for fastboot/wait until it errors out/recovery.

ya that's the one...

try this maybe?


1. Load up the fastboot menu by holding down power and the optical trackpad.
2. Plug in the USB cable
3. Press power again to select fastboot.
4. Click the SD card out, highlight recovery, and then press power to select recovery.
5. As the first white HTC screen is loading, you will hear a "detach" sound if you are on a windows computer. Immediately click the SD card in at this time.
6. Try to get into shell.
7. If you did not get into recovery, reboot into the OS by holding down power and volume up and clicking power again. Do a battery pull and repeat steps 1-6.

Can you double check to ensure the correct drivers are in the zips.

I've followed the instructions to the T on 2 different computers, each time I get "Android Bootloader Interface" and not "HTC Bootloader"

Also when viewing driver details, I don't get the same details as you. I have 3 listed, and the file info from your screenshots don't match up to what I'm getting.

Is it using the files I attached for the driver? if not manually assign them and see if it changes to HTC bootloader?

I think I've almost got it. I've deleted every trace of HTC stuff from my PC and am starting from scratch.

Now after I load into boot loader, I get the "Android 1.0" unknown device showing up. Any clue how to fix that one, I probably over looked it >.<

That is correct and normal.... once you follow the next steps though... (going into recovery) (trying to install the update.zip that will fail) then you shoudl see android 1.0 go away and android USB device > HTC bootloader show up at the very top.. at least I do when I keep device manager open and watch it through the whole process.

A driver for android 1.0 is not needed or installed in my system either.

Mine went away, but switched to Mass Storage Device and for the life of me I can't get it out of that.

I'm gonna try a new mini-SD card tomorrow or tonight for it and see what happens.

ok, when it changes to a mass storage device.... Update that driver manually.... and point to the USD driver folder in your sdk/tools... the one I have in the third download.

Any tips on how to accomplish this.

Apparently I'm not as computer savy as I thought I was, and I can't get it to load the driver no matter what I try.
