HTC Desire Z (AKA HTC Vision AKA T-Mobile G2) and ADB drivers

I just got myself a Desire Z and once again the ADB drivers fail to install in windows.

It is the same problem described and solved in this post.

To fix:
1. Make sure you have updated the SDK and the USB driver to the latest version.
2. Open the android_winusb.inf file (located under the android-sdk-windows\usb_driver directory) using a text editor. I personally prefer Notepad++.
3. Add the following lines under the [Google.NTx86] and [Google.NTamd64] sections:
 ;Desire Z  
 %SingleAdbInterface%    = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C91  
 %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C91&MI_01  
4. Save the file
5. Try to install the driver again.

If it still fails to load, follow the instructions from this post to find the correct VID and PID of your phone.

  4. It is important one updates in both [Google.NTx86] and [Google.NTamd64] sections. Otherwise it will not work.

    Thanks. It worked like charm.

  5. great help!

  6. Doesn't work on windows 8, it complains about the hash of the file after editing.

  7. For win8 -> you need to disable unsigned driver supression.

    1. WinKey+i, then while holding Shift click on restart
    2. Go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options
    3. Select 7) (disable driver supression or similar, I don't have an english OS)
    4. After a reboot you are ready to install the driver...finally

  8. Your work is very good and I appreciate you and hoping for some more informative posts. Thank you for sharing great information to us.
