Fixing android_winusb.inf for Xperia ray

I'm in the process of getting root access to my new phone. I followed the steps at, but I got stuck at step 13. Windows would not accept the android_winusb.inf file I downloaded from Sony.
I used USBView to find out if the Vendor ID and Product ID fit to the numbers in the inf file, but did not find a problem there. Then I noticed that while all the other entries are present in both
[Google.NTx86] and [Google.NTamd64] sections, "; SonyEricsson" is missing in the latter. And the OS is actually the 64 bit version ...
After copying the %SingleAdbInterface%, %CompositeAdbInterface%, %SingleBootLoaderInterface% entries under [Google.NTamd64] Windows finally accepted the driver.

Just a side note to step 15, the fastboot.exe is located under 'platform-tools', not 'tools'.

One step closer to bricking the phone!


  1. can you guide me how exactly to get it also stuck on same step...ive coonected the phone but nothing is happening...

    1. just copy the lines
      ; SonyEricsson
      %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0FCE&PID_0DDE
      %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0FCE&PID_0DDE&MI_01
      %SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0FCE&PID_0DDE
      below the line '[Google.NTamd64] '

  2. please help me,
    when i tried to fix this ini still getting same error.
    and when im trying to do step 15. im getting " < waiting for device > " on fastboot command,,,
