ADB drivers

So I get my slate 7 today and I plug it into my laptop to push some files after turning on USB debugging and I come to find out that there are no usb drivers for this device. I plugged in my phone to double check that the cord and sure enough and came up under ADB devices through Android SDK. However, when going into developer options, there is a option that says select debug app. I have never seen this before but I guess it is something with android 4.1.1. I'm used to HTC where all you do is plug it in your computer and you USB drivers are installed and you have access to ADB. Are there any USB drivers for this device so I can push things and try to start developing or do I only have the option of MTP or PTP?

Phone: Evo 4G LTE
Tablet: HP Slate 7
Laptop: Hp Envy 4

Re: ADB drivers

Find the config file adb_usb.ini (normally in C:\User\xxxx\.android), edit it and add HP VID 0x03F0 and then save it, restart you adb service, you will be able to get the device attached.

Re: ADB drivers

1. please use this command to add it

echo 0x03F0 >> %HOMEPATH%\.android\adb_usb.ini

 

2. And, find the Google USB driver android_winusb.inf which is located in <sdk>\extras\google\usb_driver\.

 

Add below sections and save it,

 

; HP
%SingleAdbInterface%        = USB_Install, USB\VID_03F0&PID_5E1D
%CompositeAdbInterface%     = USB_Install, USB\VID_03F0&PID_5D1D&MI_01
%CompositeAdbInterface%     = USB_Install, USB\VID_03F0&PID_601D&MI_01

 

3. Manual install driver for the device, from Device Manager.

 

After all these done, restart ADB service to check the device (adb devices)

Re: ADB drivers

it works !

With the recommended adb_usb.ini file and the modifications in the android_winusb.inf.

I added the lines in the [Google.NTamd64] section of android_winusb.inf file (after the  ";Google Nexus (generic)" entry and manually installed the driver for the unknown "HP" device that appears when enabling USB debugging.

Now ADB detects the device.

 

Thanks Henry !

Re: ADB drivers

What you have done is put you tablet in basic recovery mode by pushing the adb reboot recovery command.

You should not do this unless we can get the tablet rooted with a custom recovery.

The main purpose of this is for HP troubleshooting if they every need to reinstall software onto your tablet.

 

Try holding the power button for 10-20 seconds and see if you can get a soft reset:

If not try this

 

Hold the Power + Volume Up + Volume Down and see if you can get into the stock android recovery

 

Here are the steps below

Re: ADB drivers

Has anyone managed to get into fastboot?

 

I have 14 of these tablets I'm trying to preinstall an app on without interfering with the startup wizard/initial set up process. I basically need it to appear brand new to the user, with the exception of already having my app installed. This is a corporate thing and they don't want to distribute it through the Play Store.

 

"adb reboot bootloader" just shuts the tablet off, very frustrating. Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Re: ADB drivers

Sideloading an unsigned update.zip using adb in recovery mode didn't work either, no surprise there.

 

Am I wasting my time trying to do it this way? Do I need root?

Re: ADB drivers

@Gleasonator -  were you able to get the device back to normal?  If not, how about putting update.zip onto an SD card as recommended?

 

Just wondering if the ADB option will cause problems for other users...
