Xperia S LT26i showing up as Media device in device manager

Hello everyone,

 

i have a Sony Xperia S LT26i, version 4.1.2 build 6.2.B.0.200. I was trying to install the ADB drivers for it for the past few hours, tried many different files, re booted my phone a lot of times, rolled back drivers and re-installed them but to no avail. I also used the android SDK and installed the Google usb drivers and the other necessary drivers but nothing happened. The mobile is listed under portable devices as Xperia S, was previously listed as an MTP device and now as a WPD composite device ( I don't know what the **bleep** that is). Please advise, literally at my wit's end and don't know what to do Crying Face...

What is it you are trying to do?

Have you tried turning on or off USB debugging in Developer options on your phones settings and you may also need to uninstall PCC and the driver via device manager then reinstalling PCC

Re: Xperia S LT26i showing up as Media device in device manager

Well the easiest way to get root these days is via DooMLoRD Easy Rooting Toolkit

Scroll down and look for this

 

PLEASE DO NOT MIRROR MY FILES!


NEW:

DooMLoRD_Easy-Rooting-Toolkit_v17_perf-event-exploit.zip

 

Once downloaded follow these instructions

  1. just download the file, extract it completely using winzip/winrar
  2. go to the folder where its extracted and execute "RUNME.bat"
  3. read and follow the instructions on the screen!
  4. REBOOT THE DEVICE AFTER THE SCRIPT HAS FINISHED EXECUTION!

Just to add for anyone else reading this - There is now no need to unlock your bootloader this will work on both locked and unlocked bootloaders
