Install Fastboot and ADB

Windows Host

The Windows USB driver can be downloaded from the FTP site or edited manually using the following procedure:
DART-SD410 requires the following USB device support:

  • Android USB Driver (android_winusb.inf)
  • Android adb Interface
  • Android Boot Loader Interface (fastboot)
  1. Before installing the drivers, edit the qcmdm.inf and qcser.inf files to make sure that they contain support for the DART-SD410 VID/PID (Qualcomm SURF/FFA) with appropriate entries in each section,as indicated in Step 4.
  2. Go to http://developer.android.com/sdk/win-usb.html, and follow the instructions to install the SDK and USB driver.
  3. Right-click My Computer, and select Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables, and set the path to include the directory c:\android-sdk-windows\tools.
  4. The Android USB driver for adb and fastboot needs to add the DragonBoard 410c VID/PID, which supports the connection to the DART-SD410. Edit this file to add the VID/PID lines to sections of: android-sdk-windows\usb_driver\android_winusb.inf file. Install the driver after editing it.
