How to install drivers manually?

As you know if you don’t install the drivers correctly, your watch will not be detected by the computer, let alone flash the firmware.

I just read something about how to install the drivers manually.

Download the android_cdc_driver. SP_tool is best compatible with Android_cdc_driver, if you want to use the SP_tool correctly then you should download it and install in on your computer.

Download the Android_vcom_driver. If the Android_cdc_driver doesn’t work for you. You can try Android_vcom_driver, this driver also supports all Mediatek devices.
How to install the android_cdc_driver manually?

First, extract the file on your desktop.

Second, go to Device Manager, click the Administrator/user name, click the Action button, select the second option Add legacy hardware. Then a ‘Welcome to the Add Hardware Wizard’ window shows up, click next .

Third, in the ‘The wizard can help you install other hardware’ window select the second option install the hardware that I manually select fr om a list(Advanced) then in the select the type of hardware window, you don’t need to select anything, just click next.

Fourth, Select the device driver, click have disk. Then browse your computer, go to desktop, select the .inf file you just extracted.(You need to figure out your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit, before you choose the .inf file) Click OK , then click next.

Sixth, while installing the drivers, a windows security warning may show up, just install this driver software anyway. Click Finish.

Check the Ports, if you install this driver successfully, you can see it in the Ports section.

  1. My G8 keep connect and disconnect and all drivers installed i can see Media Tek USB Port (com9) in device manager, and watch also keep blinking

  2. Unfortunately this does not work on windows 10 as they have disabled installing unsigned drivers, I even tried the workaround in the videos and it just says INF file doesn not have a valid signature Without signed drivers we cannot use the pc connect – also when trying to get latest firmware ota on my No 1 G3, it states that the server didnt respond. Also the app on my phone calls the model TEST and that it doesnt have temp or heart rate (when the watch actually does)
