HOW TO connect REEDER7iC to Android studio

Connecting REEDER7iC to Android studio

1- I connected the cable.  I did start->computer->right click->manage->device manager
(using Windows7).

Others displayed a yellow ! sign next to ‘MTP’.

I could not see the portable device in the start->computer-> screen.

2- I found and downloaded the reederA7iC driver.

After I installed start->computer-> portable devices reederA7ic appeared.

3- The computer can see the reeder as portable device but Android Studio could not see it.

I did start->computer->right click->manage->device manager->others

Still displayed yellow ! mark next to ‘MTP’
But it also displayed the portable device->reederA7iC

4- C:\Users\ars\android-sdks\platform-tools>adb kill-server

C:\Users\ars\android-sdks\platform-tools>adb start-server
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *

5- C:\Users\ars\android-sdks\platform-tools>adb devices
List of devices attached

It still did not list the reederA7iC device.

6- Android studio->tools->SDK manager->Google USB driver  install...
x64 os
CertMgr.exe MFLD_USB_driver_cert.cer returned 0
Installing drivers, please wait
drvinstall.exe gadget_multi.inf returned 0
drvinstall.exe gserial.inf returned 0
drvinstall.exe rndis.inf returned 0
drvinstall.exe intelmtp.inf returned 0
drvinstall.exe android_winusb.inf returned 0

7- It still did not list the reederA7iC device and device did not appear at
Android Studio->Android window at the bottom or ADB(Android Device Bridge)
adb devices     command.

This solution works for every unregonized android device... mostly general brands don´t come with usb debugging drivers...

• go to settings
• control panel
• hardware and sound
• device manager
• And look for any devices showing an error. Many androids will show as an unknown USB device or just Android

First thing you need will be your device IDs. You can get them opening up the device manager and finding the "Unknown Device" with a yellow exclamation point. Right click on it and select 'Properties', and then go to the 'Details' tab. Under the 'Property' drop down menu, select hardware IDs. There should be two strings:


Copy those strings somewhere and then navigate to where you downloaded the Google USB driver. Then you need to open up the file 'android_winusb.inf' in a text editor. I would recommend using Notepad++.

Not this one->C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\ winusb.inf_amd64_neutral_6cb50ae9f480775b

Not this one->C:\Windows\System32

First, create a sub-section for your device. I called mine ';RCA 6378W2' but it doesn't really matter what you call it. Then, under the sub-section you created paste the Device ID strings you copied from the Device Manager, preceded by '%SingleAdbInterface%'. If you need help, look at this screenshot

NOTE: If you are using Windows 8 or 8.1, you will need to disable device driver signature checks before you'll be able to install the modified driver. Here's a quick video on how to disable device driver checks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NM1MN8QZhnk. Ignore the part at the beginning about 64 bit, your computer architecture doesn't matter

9- C:\Users\ars\android-sdks\extras\google\usb_driver\
android_winusb setup information file -> android_winusb.INF

10- Start->Computer->right click-> manage->Device manager->others->MTP->right click ->properties->details(dropdownlistbox)->hardwareIDs  

11- ;MTP (ARS)

%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_8087&PID_0A16&REV_????&MI_01
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_8087&PID_0A16&MI_01

12- After this I reloaded the reederA7iC driver again.

13- Device manager displayed Android Device at the top and Android aDB Interface underneath it.  Others->MTP disappeared.

14- Android Studio began to work with the reeder device.

15- When the reeder device is not connected device manager does not display the related items on its list.
