HTC Incredible :: Universal Windows USB Drivers - ADB - BootLoader -Disk Drive - HTC Sync

Sep 10, 2010

Monitoring the traffic on the unrEVOked IRC channel, it's clear that there is a ton of confusion about the USB drivers needed, despite the excellent article on the unrEVOked site. I thought I'd maybe add to that or create an alternative article.

There are three different modes in which the Incredible (or the EVO!) can connect to a Windows system:
Disk Drive
ADB (USB Debugging and ClockworkMod Recovery)
BootLoader (while phone is in the HBOOT mode)

The drivers that come with the Android SDK can't do any of it because none of the interfaces for the Incredible are present in the .INF file. The drivers that come with HTC Sync can do #1 and #2, but cannot be used for rooting with unrEVOked because they don't support #3. The following link points to drivers which are universal; they will work for all three purposes on the Incredible (and the EVO as well).

unrEVOked modified USB Driver

You do not have to remove HTC Sync if you have it installed. These drivers will replace the ones that came from HTC Sync and be usable for that as well as rooting. The trick is getting these drivers to replace the ones you have from the Android SDK or HTC Sync or ??? (or simply installing them if you have no drivers yet). The idea is to plug your phone into USB while it's in HBOOT mode, forcing Windows to look for Bootloader drivers. Only the ones here provide that.

Anyway, here's how:
Uninstall HTC Sync, DoubleTwist, and DropBox from the PC. Sorry about this. Once these drivers are installed you may reinstall those and they will continue to work. These drivers are universal.
Unzip the file, leaving the folder Android USB Driver somewhere like on your desktop
Unplug your phone from USB
Power down your phone
Now simultaneously press the volume DOWN button and the power button, holding till the HBOOT screen appears
Now connect the USB cable between the phone and your PC
The word HBOOT (blue box with white letters) will change to HBOOT USB PLUG
On the EVO, wait till HBOOT cycles through an SD check (10 sec) then select select HBOOT USB at the bottom of the menu (using the vol keys to navigate and power button to select). Thanks to hperry for this.
Now look at your Windows Device Manager and see if you already have Android Phone listed for HBOOT as shown in one of the last two images (way) below. To see the Device Manager, right click My Computer, select Manage..., select the Device Manager. If you see the Android Phone, you're ready to root and can skip the rest of this. Otherwise, you do not have HBOOT-capable drivers, and you need to install them. Windows should be looking for drivers now. At this point things may differ between XP and Vista/7.

In XP, the New Hardware Found Wizard should appear. Tell it NOT to use Windows Update, and moving along, tell it to look in a specified location. It will pop up a file open dialog. Navigate to the Android USB Driver folder, click OK then click Next.

For Windows Vista/7 you might not see the New Hardware Found Wizard. Open the Device Manager (Right click My Computer, select Manage..., select the Device Manager). You will see an Android Phone node in the tree with a "caution" icon node beneath it. Right click on the caution-marked node and select Update Driver. Follow through specifying NOT to look in Windows Updatte and Install from a specified location. It will pop up a file open dialog. Navigate to the Android USB Driver folder, click OK, then click Next.

In either case, eventually the driver should install. At this point you have the universal drivers installed for the Incredible. They can also be used with the HTC EVO. Here's what you should see in the Windows Device Manager for each condition:

Phone Running Normally, USB Debugging Enabled, plugged in via USB:

Windows 7

Windows XP

Phone running HBOOT, plugged in via USB:

Phone showing HBOOT

Windows 7

Windows XP

HTC Incredible :: Mount As Disk Drive

Nov 5, 2010

Unable to connect my DINC to my PC to look around, move some files etc.

Yes, I have USB Debugging checked. Yes, I select "mount as disk drive" when prompted.

Appears to be charging just fine after I attach it to my PC, then I go to open Windows Explorer and Explorer sits and spins then crashes. In fact, when I close Explorer and go to my desktop, all I get is the wallpaper (no desktop icons etc). Then, when I unplug my phone, computer acts normally. Same PC that I used to root my phone mind you, so somehow it was able to connect to my phone for that process.

Have rebooted the phone as well, all to no avail. One of the advantages of Android and the DINC is the ability to hook up to a PC and move files around...not being able to do this is becoming a bit of a PITA...

HTC Incredible :: Won't Mount Phone Memory Or SD Card As Disk Drive Unless Reboot?

Oct 27, 2010

I am running one of the leaked 2.2 OTA Roms, everything has been working fine, except lately, as of a week or two ago, the phone won't mount as Disk Drive unless I reboot, and it wasn't a one time fix, I have to do this every time. I noticed that when I plug the phone into the computer, I don't get the message saying "Charge Only / HTC Sync / Disk Drive / Mobile Broadband Connect etc." And yes, I have it set to ask me every time, and I even set the default connection type to Disk Drive, and still I unplug it and plug it back in and nothing. I know it connected okay, the computer recognizes it as HTC Android device or whatever it calls it, and the orange light lights up on the phone showing that's it's charging, but in my computer all that pops up is a weird optical drive that I can't access.

Sprint HTC Hero : Windows Drive Mounting - Reintroduce My Phone To The Windows Box

May 21, 2010

I have had DC 2.08.1 installed for about 2 weeks with no issues. I decided to go ahead and partition the SD to utilized apps2SD as I was having memory issues. That process, while not smooth, went through okay and the SD card is working with the partition and apps2SD. However, ever since that was completed, my Windows 7 box no longer recognizes the phone either as a phone or as a drive. My Linux laptop recognizes the drive without issue.

Any suggestions on how I can reintroduce my phone to the Windows box, at least as a drive?

HTC EVO 4G :: Mounted Evo As Disk Drive / Deleted Photos / Video

Aug 17, 2010

I just mounted my Evo as a disk drive so I could backup some of my older photos and then delete them from the SD card to free up space. Well I deleted over 1gb of media files and when I unmounted the SD card it still showed the same amount of free space as before.I opened up Astro File Manager to see if I could find the problem and the files were deleted from the various folders but when I clicked the menu button and selected Tools, I went to view the SD card usage and noticed a folder labeled .Trashes which contained the 1+gb of files that I deleted from the card.The problem is, I am unable to clear the .Trashes folder and free up that extre 1gb of space that I should have...Is there something I am doing wrong? How do I get that extra space back because there is no option to delete or clear the .Trashes folder and when the phone is mounted as a disk drive there is no path to that specific (.Trashes) folder.

Does anyone know if there is a app, or phone mod that allows you to access the SD Card on the phone, at the same time as it's being used as a drive.I'm getting tired of transferring things like icons, and wallpaper to my phone, then having to unmount the drive before I can use them. Especially if I'm just trying out new icons.Is it possible to have my desire set to disk drive, and access it at the same time?

HTC Incredible : Can't Sync To Windows 7-64bit / How To Fix

Jun 1, 2010

I have had my Droid 2 weeks and love it. But I can not get it to sync with my Dell XPS Windows 7, 64 bit computer. I've been to 3 different Verizon stores and they have no idea what to do. It will sync with XP and Windows 7-32 bit. I have downloaded the Motorola 4.6.0 Driver with MotoConnect* (for 64-bit versions of Windows´┐Ż). When I connect to my computer, it acts like it will connect and sometimes it does for a couple of minutes then the drive just disappears. I have marked "Debugging". I have Googled and tried everything out there with no luck.

HTC Desire :: Can't Mount Desire As Disk Drive

Jun 2, 2010

Turning the phone on and off.Rebooting my PC.Done both of these multiple times. Have changed settings in "Connect to PC" and re-set them to see if that would make a difference and have clicked and unclicked "Ask me."option on connecting.What is going on? The phone just starts charging, but I cannot get it to show up as a drive.It worked perfectly until I installed Handcent SMS (which I've since uninstalled).And have naturally rebooted the phone several times since.yet it still doesn't work.I'm really at my wits end. I'm using the USB cable that came with the HTC car charger but it surely can't be that but then what is causing it to not work? The only non-standard things I have on my phone are 3G Watchdog and the Astro file manager. Both of which didn't have any impact WRT to mounting the phone.But now, having just bought some music from Amazon on my phone, I can't get my music or photos off the phone onto my PC.

Aug 18, 2010

I have had this phone since April and it has been pretty disappointing overall with the whole not upgrading to Android 2.1 and such, but that's not the issue right now. I bought a new laptop about 2 weeks ago and I want to use my phone with my laptop. I download the drivers for the phone and they could not install and everytime I connect the phone to the computer it says the device is not recognized. The phone now can't connect and I can't see the files that are on the phone. I want to be able to put music and videos on my phone and I can't now. It works perfectly fine one my desktop which is an XP, but I wont be able to use the desktop because I will be leaving for college soon.
