DriverAssistant – Simplified Method to Install Rockchip USB Drivers in Windows XP/7/8/10

Orange Pi Development Boards

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 [Update: More recent versions of the tools can be found in Rockchip-Linux account in Github]
  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
    RK_Driver_Assistant_Install_Uninstall
  4. Then click “Install Driver”, and depending on your version of Windows the Security below may show up twice during installation. Just click “Install”
    RK_Driver_Assistant_Windows_Security
  5. Done. The drivers should be installed, and you’re ready to root your device, or install or upgrade your firmware via USB.

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.
0x2207; 0x0010

0x2207 is the vendor ID of Rockchip, 0x0010 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.

I have used this installer to at last install an adb driver and make my win 7 PC recognize my Pipo M9Pro tablet after a lot of previous failing efforts. Unfortunately, it could not recognize it properly, It appears as SAMSUNG Android Phone instead of Pipo M9Pro, which may be the reason why some other softwares still do not find it.
I wonder if I need to create and add this file adb_usb.ini to make it work all the way. But then, where do I find the right product ID?

You should be able to find it in the “Hardware Manager”.

Do you mean the Device Manager? In that case, there is a lot of information there. Here are some of the lines I think may be relevant:

Hardware-ID
USB\VID_2207&PID_0010&REV_0222&MI_01
USB\VID_2207&PID_0010&MI_01
Matching Unit-ID
USB\VID_2207&PID_0010&MI_01
Unit description reported by bus:
M9Pro
Name on på physical device unit
\Device000009a
Displayed name
SAMSUNG Android Phone

There is nothing there that reminds of the product ID 0x0010 quoted by sanzen. The only thing indicating this is my M9Pro is the “Unit description by bus”.

I should also mention that I live in Sweden, so the Windows names are the Swedish ones translated by me, not the official Microsoft English names

I have original (unhacked) Pipo ROM. Anyway, I made the adb_usb.ini file, but nothing changed. I then decided to uninstall the driver and start all over, still using your RK_DriverAssitant.zip. But unlike the first time I tried it, it now doesn´t work at all. When I come to the point when I press “Install driver”, the response is “No found driver inf!”. What may have happened?

Seems I am moving farther away from success.

I should also mention, that I am not installling the adb driver in order to root. I am trying to get the “Recordable” app to work. This is an app for screen recording. It doesn´t require rooting, but adb driver must be installed. Unfortunately, when I last had my Win7 PC to recognize the M9Pro (although with a different name SAMSUNG Android Phone), the app could still not find it.

For anyone trying to get past “No found driver inf!”, go to http://radxa.com/Rock/windows_adb and follow instructions for “Install manually”. This installs the Android Composite ADB Interface driver.

I have a windows 8 computer and thank you this is the only solution I found that worked. I do volunteer work at a school until recently I was using a windows 7 computer for the job.

These Chinese tablets are literally pieces of junk. Imagine the following scenario: you buy a shiny new tablet at rock bottom prices for your kids; the kids put in a pattern lock and forget the pattern; they get locked out; the tablet has NO VOLUME BUTTONS. Guess what? You just bought a brick because (unless you had the foresight to turn on USB Debugging before any problems occurred) THERE IS NO WAY TO FACTORY RESET IT. BRICKED!!! EVEN THOUGH YOU CAN TURN IT ON AND OFF. Fucking expensive paperweights although they seem so cheap when you first buy them.

Moborobo has been able to find drivers for all kinds of equipment. I’ve written to them but they won’t tell how their app “Moborobo” is able to find and automatically install any driver. Is anybody here has enough expertise to look into the folders of the program and find out how they are doing it?

Run up a Windows VM and stop bitching. OS/2. Says it all really. And yes I have used it before, so so don’t dust off the saddle on that shiny high horse you have stashed away just yet 🙂

Hi,

I used this tool to uninstall the driver,
reboot then install the driver.

Then I pressed the firmware upgrade button to connect the MK908 V3 to the pc,
the device manager reported
‘Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed).

Does this mean the TV stick is dead?

Best Regards,

Vincent

Ok,

I used this file
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzI…U0TWhtaUE/view

Then uninstall, reboot, install the driver using this
driver assistant tool and solved this problem

https://github.com/chirimen-oh/CHIRIMEN-tools

(Some instructions online suggest you to replace your win 8.1/10 usbport.sys usbhub.sys file with win 8’s one, be very careful with this because it is very likely
you are going to crash your OS and can’t boot it )
