fastboot - USB drivers on the xperia play

  • patanás

    I'm helping out a friend with rooting Xperia play, I spent 5 hours trying to root it yesterday with him and we couldn't. We tried gingerbreak and z4mod but they did not work, so we tried the fastboot way and I can't seem to get the drivers installed properly.

    Whenever I try the command to check for the phone in cmd the phone shows no response as if he wasn't connected.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Steps I've used in the past for this kind of issue :

    1. Check your USB cable - some are no good for data. (this is frequently the issue when my computer can't see my phone)
    2. reboot everything
    3. you say the drivers aren't installing - what's the issue there? try manually installing the drivers.

    usb - Qualcomm HSUSB device driver issue
  • GamDroid

    I have a Qualcomm HS-USB device on which I want to test my developed application. The problem I am facing is that the device drivers are not getting installed. I have tried the following steps:

    1. Downloaded the Google USB drivers (latest).
    2. Downloaded the ZTE USB drivers (the device is ZTE manufactered).
    3. This device I have configured earlier also on a Windows 7 system and it worked fine. I dont know why it is not working this time on a new Windows 7 system.

    Please help me to make the device driver work. Or please tell me if there is any other solution to this.

    As for all driver problems, you should first try the following:

    1. Disconnect the device
    2. Uninstall all drivers for it
    3. Reboot
    4. Install the official drivers (probably the ZTE-specific ones)
    5. Reboot
    6. Connect the device
