Do the APX drivers work on windows 10?

Postby aajohn64 » 09 Nov 2015, 04:30

So I got the image sos checksum fail message and coincidentally didn't have my cpuid. I first tried the sd card 'update.zip' method and that didn't work. I then used the linux route to find that and got the sbk. Now I am having trouble getting the apx tools to recognize the tablet. I've downloaded and installed the acer drivers, blackthund3r drivers, mirror drivers and everything I could find; I tried all of this one two different windows 10 computers. Anyone know if its possibly a windows 10 problem?

Also, if anyone has any help to revive the tablet I would be greatly appreciative.

When I tried to flash my A500 using the APX Tool, it keeps complaining about missing APX driver on my Windows 10 - but when I follow the exact steps in Windows 7 (all steps like installing drivers, adb, etc) it works smoothly - the device does show up as APX too in Windows when it entered APX mode.

So I guess there is a problem with W10?

I've actually found the solution for the windows 10 problem
Windows 10 enforces driver signature as default
if you go into advanced startup and reboot you can change it to accept unsigned drivers and then you can proceed .
I actually found this when I was trying to run a robotics program on windows 10 and decided to try it on the A500 problems and it all works.
windows 10 now just asks if you want to quit or install an unsigned driver similar to how windows 7 always did.
I will post a tutorial for this process in the next few days

I am having a similar issue. Using the acer a500 driver install works fine but even when allowing unsigned drivers I see APX in other devices with a yellow exclamation mark. I can't, for the life of me get it to load drivers for the APX device. Did using unsigned drivers work for you?

As well as I can remember
you need to uninstall all the other devices instances then install the unsigned driver before connecting the A500 to the pc and to your question yes it works perfectly as well as other users reporting success as well.

can't wait for your tutorial, thanks in advanced!!

i have follow the tutorial here to allow install unsigned-drivers
https://en.code-bude.net/2015/08/19/how ... indows-10/
but then i don't know how to proceed, still failed to make APX drivers work on my Windows 10 (64bit).

at the mean time i am using the "android_apxusb.inf" from
https://technosamigos.com/download-univ ... d-drivers/

Device manager show "Asus Transformer APX" when my A500 is in APX mode. And i can do all the flashing things... :D
