OEM USB Drivers

If you are developing on Windows and would like to connect an Android-powered device to test your applications, then you need to install the appropriate USB driver. This document provides links to the web sites for several original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), where you can download the appropriate USB driver for your device. However, this list is not exhaustive for all available Android-powered devices.

If you’re developing on Mac OS X or Linux, then you probably don’t need to install a USB driver. To start developing with your device, read Using Hardware Devices.

Note: If your device is one of the Android Developer Phones (ADP), a Nexus One, or a Nexus S, then you need the Google USB Driver, instead of an OEM driver. The Galaxy Nexus driver, however, is distributed by Samsung (listed as model SCH-I515).

Installing a USB Driver

——————————————————————————–

First, find the appropriate driver for your device from the OEM drivers table below.

Once you’ve downloaded your USB driver, follow the instructions below to install or upgrade the driver, based on your version of Windows and whether you’re installing for the first time or upgrading an existing driver.

Tip: When you finish the USB driver installation, see Using Hardware Devices for other important information about using an Android-powered device for development.

Caution: You may make changes to android_winusb.inf file found inside usb_driver\ (for example, to add support for other devices), however, this will lead to security warnings when you install or upgrade the driver. Making any other changes to the driver files may break the installation process.
