Install Android Development Drivers (ADB)

These drivers are only needed for ADB and fast boot commands. If you just want to access files over USB you won’t need to install these drivers!
Since Windows 8 does not allow the installation of unsigned drivers please see here on how to disable the driver signature verification check. For installation on a Unix based OS click here.

Install on Windows 7 or older

  2. If you have the Nautiz plugged into your PC, unplug it now.
  3. Run the exe as administrator Right-click > Run as administrator.

Unix and Linux

  1. Install the device and ADB as described in the Android Developer documents.
  2. For ADB to recognize the Nautiz X4 and X8, you have to manually add a new Vendor ID (0x2A48 and ) to the ~/.android/adb_usb.ini file. You can do so by running echo “0x2A48” >> ~/.android/adb_usb.ini in a Terminal
