ADVENT VEGA USB DRIVER PROBLEM

Recommended Posts

michaeljp    0

Hi guys, I have an advent vega and have downloaded and unzipped the R8rom. I have followed the instructions on how to update the drivers but have hit a brick wall there. My laptop says it doesn't contain a compatible software driver for the device, or it isn't designed to work with a 32- system. I'm lost.

I have followed the instructions:

3 > You should then right click the Android Debug Bridge Interface or USB Mass Storage device and choose ‘Update Driver Software’. Rather than let Windows try and find the driver, choose the 'let me pick from a list on my computer' option and choose 'Have disk'. Then browse to the folder where you unzipped the download earlier and press 'OK'. (EG. C:\adventvega)

I cant get any further than this.

Any advice would be very much appreciated!

First, using Windows Explorer you need to go to the folder on your PC where you unzipped the files from Pauls download pack. In that folder will be a folder called 'usbdriver' and within that, one called 'usb_driver' and it is in this sub-folder where all the drivers you need are held.

If when you run the 'install-windows.bat' command as instructed nothing happens or you only get say a couple of lines of text displayed then you will need to do the following:-

Go to CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM>HARDWARE>DEVICE MANAGER and if you have the Vega connected by USB (with power on) you should see some new hardware called ANDROID PHONE and/or NVIDIA HARMONY. Right click on each entry and click 'Uninstall' then go to the top of the list where it displays your computers name and right click on the entry and select 'Scan for hardware changes'. The Windows new hardware wizard will then pop-up asking if you have a driver disk or not. Say you have and browse to the folder called 'usb_driver' described above and select it. The hardware should then be installed with the correct drivers.

Repeat the 'install-windows.bat' command and hopefully this time a whole list of program output should appear showing it is working and in less than a minute it should all be done and your Vega will reboot itself. Then on Vega go into SETTINGS>ABOUT DEVICE and the Kernel Version should include the text for the level you are now at.

Note:- You may need to do the above with every new release as it seems to be the only way of updating the drivers properly unless someone else can tell us a better way
