I am trying to get the fastboot driver for Sony Xperia ZR (dogo) for Windows 7 x64.
I found a page with instructions which pointed me to a Sony site where you can download a
android_winusb.inf file which one is supposed to copy over the one in the Android SDK folder under
Then, I put the phone into fastboot mode by
- Powering it off
- Pushing the Volume Up button while connecting the phone via USB to the PC.
- The light turns blue and in the Windows Device Manager, I can see a new
S1Boot Fastbootentry under
After right-clicking on that entry and selecting
Update Driver Software..., then
Browse my computer for driver software, I pointed to the Android SDK folder where I previously put the
android_winusb.inf file (see above).
Unfortunately after clicking
Next, there is a message
Windows was unable to install your S1Boot Fastboot and
Windows could not find driver software for your device.
On this thread, I found a link to a thread on XDA Developers where one can download a "fastboot package" and "32/64bit drivers", but I am hesitant because these are EXE files from an unknown source and the thread's title suggests this is for Xperia Arc, not ZR.
Are there any "official" drivers for my phone?
I also found a great Sony webpage listing "All Android downloads" which has white papers, source code and drivers for all(?) devices, except the drivers for the ZR are missing.
I have seen this comment to a question concerning fastboot drivers and USB device IDs, so I tried to replace device IDs for
SingleBootLoaderInterface (sequentially, not all at once) with the one which I got from the Device Manager, which is
USB\VID_0FCE&PID_0DDE&REV_0100. Unfortunately this didn't make any difference, the drivers are still not recognised.
