Simplified Method to Install Rockchip USB Drivers in Windows XP/7/8

When you need to root or upgrade Rockchip RK3066 or RK3188 devices, you’ll usually have to connect your device to your computer via USB, and in Windows, installing specific drivers (ADB drivers) is usually needed. However, many people seem to have problems with installing the proper driver, and their device may not be recognized properly. To simplify the task for Windows users, Rockchip has written a tool called RK Driver Assistant to automatically install the correct drivers on different Windows versions.

Here’s how to install the drivers with this tools.There’s no need to connect your Rockchip device during this procedure.

  1. Download and extract RK_DriverAssitant.zip
  2. Double click on DriverInstall.exe in Release_DriverAssitant directory to start the utility
  3. If you’ve already tried to install USB drivers for Rockchip devices, make sure to click “Uninstall Driver” first

  4. Then click “Install Driver”, and depending on your version of Windows the Security below may show up twice during installation. Just click “Install”

  5. Done. The drivers should be installed, and you’re ready to root your device, or install or upgrade your firmware via USB.

Via MINIX and AndroidPC.es

    And what about Linux/BSD users, who don’t have access to anything coming from the “hell of Redmond”?
    What are they supposed to do?

    @OS/2user
    See http://www.cnx-software.com/2013/09/27/how-to-root-rockchip-devices-in-linux/

    It shows how to configure adb access before rooting the device.
    Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s possible to upgrade the firmware in Linux yet (TBC), since you still need to use another windows-only RK tool to do so.

    I’ve tried this package on a Win7 64-bit system and my Minix X7 device still isn’t be recognized. I’ve installed two other android device (Lenovo Yoga 10, Samsung Galaxy Nexus) with *some* issues, but they’ve since been working fine when I installed the appropriate drivers. Is there anything I should take into account when installing these drivers?

    I’m at a loss on how to get this working

    In addition to installing the driver, you may also need to add USB vendor ID and product ID into C:\Users\[user name]\.andriod\adb_usb.ini in order for adb to recognize the driver. Here is what mine now looks like:

    # ANDROID 3RD PARTY USB VENDOR ID LIST — DO NOT EDIT.
    # USE ‘android update adb’ TO GENERATE.
    # 1 USB VENDOR ID PER LINE.
    0×2207; 0×0010

    0×2207 is the vendor ID of Rockchip, 0×0010 is the product ID.

    Once this is done, it worked great. Note that adb access is available even USB mass storage is turned on.

    For reference, my system is Lenovo Yoga running 64-bit Windows 8.1. I also tested on a Dell running 32-bit Windows 7.
