Hello, guys! I am currently working hard on my Xperia S. I want to unlock my bootloader, but not ready yet because I CANNOT INSTALL S1Boot Fastboot manually for my Xperia S. I am confused why, because it should work. How can I install it then?

Are you using the amended driver found in your Fastboot folder on your C: drive under usb_driver - You need to manually point it to this folder to install the correct driver but be quick about doing it as your device manager will only show the problem driver untill it can't find the correct driver in the dfault location

I have the same issue. When i connect m xperia s in fastboot mode, i do not see any driver installation message now.
For the first time i saw the message that windows was installing S1Boot Fastboot driver, but it was unable to install it.
Also, i read somewhere that i need to manually point to the driver location but i cannot find anything where i can "browse" for the driver location.
Now, i do not see any message for driver installation. The drivers are not installed and hence I am not able to root my device.
Can anyone please help me with the eleborated process for the same?

If you have installed fastboot then the driver folder can and should be found in the directory below
If for some reason you don't have it then I have rar'd the drivers up and you can download them from the link below

So you want me to create a dir under C: and paste the files you attached... done.
But, how can i manually browse to the files and istall them. As said, when i connect m phone in fastboot mode, windows do not search for any drivers now. There is no action by windows.

Assuming you have installed Fastboot then you now need to open your device manager - There are several ways to do this but one way is to right click my computer or computer left click properties then on the left choose device manager or if using XP select the tab Hardware then device manager - Now look for a yellow sysmbol which means a missing driver this will only show up when you connect your phone in fastboot mode - When it does show up right click this then select update driver and choose the manual method which says something like let me choose the path etc - Then using the manual method direct it to that folder you downloaded, If all goes well it will begin the driver update and yellow sysbol will disapear - Fastboot mode will now be fully working
