One of the best features that Android has to offer is embedded into the core of the system. It’s a fact that it is open source and that allows anybody (including you guys) to get hold of the source code and change it and make it into something else. We know this already when we see custom ROMs being made which is third-party developers grabbing the source code and altering it. That is one of the ways people develop Android, but the idea behind developing goes much deeper.
Something as simple as installing firmware on a mobile device is still classed as developing on that device. And that’s what you need the USB Drivers on the computer: for developing. Any developing at all. The Windows computers do not automatically come with any Drivers installed for your device. They are programmed to install device Drivers automatically when possible—and you know that has happened when you see a message popping up from the system tray letting you know that it has “detected” your device.
If you find that running flashing tools doesn’t result in your device being detected by that flashing tool, then you need to install the OEM USB Drivers manually instead. There are a several ways to get the Drivers installed, and they vary depending on what device you are using. Some manufacturers release special tools that offer various things, and one of the things is the Drivers inside the tool. Those are the ones we recommend the least because they install things on your computer that you do not need.
One of the better ways you can get the USB Drivers installed is by installing the Universal Windows ADB Driver on the computer. Koushik Dutta makes the Universal ADB Driver package, and the point of it is to allow people with all different devices to install it, and it is all that is required to install the USB Drivers. The one file contains the USB Drivers for manufacturer device manufacturers. However, the file itself is still much smaller in size than other tools that manufacturers want you to install.
