Many people including myself have had problems with ur phone not being detected by your pc. This is where this guide comes into play.

Original Guide By Yitz

Things you will need:

A) Driver Tool

cool.gif WinRAR

C) RSD Lite 2.5 (or higher). Use Google to search for this one, as links to WAREZ is against forum rules.

----------------------------------

Now, for the "tutorial":

1) Download Driver Tool.

2) Unzip the .RAR file using AlZip. (After AlZip is installed, right-click on the file, and choose "Extract to current folder")

3) In the "MOTODRIVERS" folder, run the "Driver Tool" utility. You will get this:

Then this:

This process shouldn't take more than 30 seconds.

4) Open RSD Lite.

5) Plug in the phone.

6) The computer will "chirp" and you will get a notification that windows found a "New Hardware-Motorola Modem".

7) Now here comes the tricky part: Choose option 2 when the computer asks you to install the drivers, and press "Next". Like this:

8) Press "Browse", and look for the file you unzipped earlier named "MOTODRIVERS". Press "Ok". Like this:

The computer will find the drivers and say "Your hardware is installed and ready to be used".
DO NOT UNPLUG THE PHONE YET! The computer will find some more hardware.

9) Repeat steps 7 and 8 for the for the following:

"Accessories Interface"
"Data Logging MCU Interface"
"Test Command Interface"

10) Unplug the phone. Leave RSD Lite open.

11) Turn off the phone.

12) Force the phone into Boot-Loader Mode, by pressing * # and "power", simultaneously.

13) Plug the phone into the computer (RSD Lite should still be running).

14) Repeat steps 7 and 8 for the "Motorola Flash Interface".


Now you should have all (5) drivers correctly installed!

Note: If you make a mistake somewhere in the middle, just start from the beggining. The process should take no more than 5 minutes.

Hope this helps somebody. Good luck.

I found what u were looking for. The links were not working. Updated the DriverTool link.
Instead of Alzip download WinRar. U'll find the link for download in google.
