    Hi,

    I changed the Vodafone boot logo in my Huawei Ascend g300 yesterday and after that I am not able to continue with the OS becasue the screen “HUAWEI” in the startup show this logo and reboot every time. The change that I made was in the path ./System in the root device. I don´t have way to see the root path again to fix it, any idea? thanks!!!

    HTC drivers attempt:
    http://www.mediafire.com/error.php?errno=380&origin=download

    “File Download Blocked

    The file you attempted to download has been previously claimed by a copyright holder through a valid DMCA request and cannot be downloaded.

    Still have questions, or think we’ve made a mistake? Please contact support for further assistance.”

    WTF HTC, why do you care about this enough to DMCA the file off the web?!

    YOUR installer DOES NOT offer the option of ONLY installing the USB Drivers (PLEASE UPDATE YOUR ARTICLE ASHRAF ).

    Instead, it forces installation of:

    Windows Media Format 11 Runtime (bloat! – and who the hell chooses to use WMV or WMA DEAD standards – this is for DRM I assume – F**K DRM!)
    Adobe AIR (FUCK Adobe – BLOAT!!)
    MS XML 4.0 SP3…

    Maybe HTC are getting PAID to foist such bloatware onto the people. Don’t think it doesn’t happen!

    Otherwise, what advantage to THEM, in taking-down the above link via a DMCA request?

    I’m sure it’s better for THEM if people can use their phones properly, to the fullest-potential, not have their systems damaged by bloatware. Makes the phones more attractive to ‘power users’…

    Shame the idiot bean-counters ‘can only see’ what’s on their spreadsheets, and forget the unquantifiable and objective USEFULNESS OF TECHNOLOGY (as opposed to it’s solely-money-making-potential-in-the-hands-of-capitalist-lawyers-and-accountants; the assholes.

    WORKAROUND – extract the hidden files from inside the HTC installer. Instead of downloading from some untrusted source like some dude’s Dropbox or something, which I will NEVER recommend (no-one to sue if it damages your OS, hahaha).

    WORKAROUND IS THIS:

    Run the official bloat-ridden HTC installer in a sandbox – OR AS A LIMITED USER (i.e. do NOT accept the UAC prompt):

    http://www.htc.com/us/support/content.aspx?id=6196

    http://www.htc.com/us/software/htc-sync-manager/

    —> http://dl4.htc.com/managed-assets/support/software/htc-sync/setup_3.3.63.exe

    Pretend to go through with the install until the point at which it’s trying to actually install each component and copy files to your operating system…

    DO NOT close the installer – it should complain that the installation of each component in the above list FAILS (good!) and prompt if you want to continue or cancel. Just click on nothing and ignore it, then:

    Open your %temp% folder (Start Button + R / Start Menu -> ‘Run’ -> “%temp%” ).

    There should be some folders with random-looking names. Go through them until you see the ones with the following files in (each one in it’s own ‘randomly’-named folder):

    HTCDriver_4.5.0.001_20130819.exe

    HTC BMP USB Driver x86.msi

    Copy them to a safe location outside of your %temp% folder.

    Scan them for viruses and/or upload them to virustotal.com to check their integrity.

    Run them as an administrator account (or accept the UAC prompt).

    -> Back them up to a zip file if they work well!

    You’re welcome.

    …and HTC, just for that ignorant software design decision, you have lost a customer, you selfish assholes!
    Now to take your crap bloatware off this client’s phone… :-D

    Same as Sony Ericsson et al – can’t code or even re-package others’ software FOR SHIT but arrogantly expect people to infest their machines with this rubbish!

    (Can you tell that I’m sick of this paradigm yet?! :p )

    Peace.

    Hello, all.
    I bought my wife a tablet so she could read digital books, etc.
    I guess I got a good deal,
    but I’m still ‘learning’, so, maybe not.
    I got a WM-8880-MID / ForFun_V7,
    for $79.99, free ship.
    I like to hack stuff,
    but I can’t get this thing to show up in windoz, or move apps to the sd card.
    The techknow.me forum says the ROM is broken, & they have a beta to fix moving apps, but lately it fails to show up it Win7HP.
    Kinda’ hard to get anything accomplished, IYKWIM.
    TIA
    Have a GREAT day, neighbors!

    @nagelfar: You are welcome!

    @Emrys: If you have to use ADB or Fastboot, or if you want to put your device in USB debugging mode. Honestly unless you explicitly need the drivers, you don’t need to install them.

  • Emrys

    Download and install went fine. After restart my Pdanet was restored, but I can not find my Andriod on the system even though the message “my device is ready to use” came up. I wonder what this driver is supposed to do.

  • nagelfar

    Thank you very much for this handy list (and the driver hosting).
    It is really useful :)
