Universal Naked Driver Solves Your ADB Driver Problems on Windows
We’ve talked about ADB and its importance on many occasions. This set of tools allows you to push or pull the files, as well as generate logs that help you properly debug applications, frameworks, and other elements of Android. It’s quite easy to set up ADB on Linux machines, as you just need to type one or two commands and you’re done. You can also use one of tools to do the job for you. On Windows, the situation is a bit different.
It’s not a mystery that newest editions of Windows have problems with ADB drivers. One of the solution is to find an universal driver to fix all the issues. We already wrote about great project by XDA Senior Member 1wayjonny that puts all the drivers together to save you time and reduce your chances of encountering issues. Now, the project has been updated to support the newest devices such as the Google Nexus 5 and the Nvidia Shield.
Installation is pretty easy. On Windows 7 and earlier, all you need to do is plug in your device and choose the folder with the universal driver. It’s a bit more complicated on Windows 8 and 8.1, as you need to disable Driver Signature Enforcement. But with just a little bit of effort, you’ll be able to use ADB on your device in no time. 1wayjonny was kind enough to explain the procedure thoroughly, so anyone can follow along easily.
This tool should work with most devices, but only a few are officially supported. You can get the driver from the original thread.
