    Droid ADB help, HTC got me good...

    I have owned my Droid since day 1 and I have been doing Android development, with ADB working, on my Windows 2003 Server laptop all this time.

    Things to note right off the bat:
    - Motorola Droid 2.1
    - Windows Server 2003 laptop
    - ADB has worked perfectly with this for ~ 8 months

    My work gave me a HTC Evo to do some development on. I installed the HTC drivers, ADB worked fine, did my development and now I am done with the Evo. The problem is my Droid no longer works with ADB.

    Here are some steps that I have tried:

    Attempt A:
    1. In device manager I have listed Android Phone->Android ADB Interface
    2. Right click->Uninstall
    3. Scan for new hardware->Device shows up
    4. Select this device, pick the usb drivers that come with the SDK
    5. Various items install like ADB and Moto A855
    6. Device manager looks exactly as it did in step 1.
    7. ADB Doesnt work

    Attempt B:
    1. Start up USBDeview
    2. Delete the HTC entry, Delete all the Motorola A855 entries
    3. Go through the steps in Attempt A.
    4. ADB Doesnt work

    Attempt C:
    1. Download Motorola 4.6.0 driver package and install it
    2. Uninstall the current driver in device manager
    3. Scan for drivers automatically
    4. Drivers from SDK are automatically used
    5. ADB not working
    6. Go back and pick "have disk" for the driver. Tried every driver than came with Mtorola 4.6.0 driver package and none would install.

    Now I'm just stumped. Also important to note that the phone and ADB still work fine on other computers that I never installed the HTC drivers on.

    Thanks for any tips!

    Does HTC have a driver uninstaller by any chance? With my girls backflip, ADB wasn't working until I ran the Moto driver installer, which then screwed up my Droid. I used the clean tool in the moto driver installer to remove them, then using device manager, reinstalled the adb drivers that came in the sdk. Try running the moto driver installer, clean them, then do attempt A.

    I think at one point I also ended up deleting the usb composite devices from device manager as well. Not sure what effect this had as it was a while back.

    I have not found any HTC Uninstaller. When I installed the HTC Drivers it was just a folder of files and I had to do the "pick folder" business from device manager.

    I have done the clean and reinstall through the Motorola drivers quite a few times. It seems like the problem is trying to get Windows to "forget" about the SDK drivers and use the Motorola ones.

    Here is the latest thing I have tried:
    1. Uninstall everything I can.
    2. Remove Motorola A855 items from USBDeview
    3. Search the whole computer for various .dll files that are in the SDK usb driver folder, and delete them.
    4. Delete the SDK driver folder.
    5. Install the Motorola drivers, run the clean and reinstall.
    6. Plug the phone in.
    New things happen this time.
    7. I pick let me choose the folder.
    8. I select the Motorola drivers folder (under program files)
    9. It gives me an error where it is still looking for the SDK drivers and will not continue.

    I can think of several things that could be screwing me up here.
    - Some registry entry that I do not know how to find to remove
    - Some dll files out in some directory that need to be deleted
    - Some HTC files that need to be deleted somewhere

    This is the most frustrating experience I think I've ever had!

    Yeah I understand your pain. After switching to an SSD and moving my data to a different drive, it's become quicker to simply format Windows than try to figure out some quirks like that.

    Good luck.
