Hello readers, here is a post I just had to make following a lot of questions from followers on how and why they can’t successfully install Android VCOM drivers which makes it impossible to flash ROMs and do other tweaks on their devices. This a pretty straight forward step once you have the VCOM / CDC drivers on your PC. Just follow the pictures.
How To Install VCOM Drivers
NOTE: If you’re on Windows 10, you have to disable Driver Signature Enforcement. To disable that follow these steps;
How to Disable Driver Signature Enforcement on Windows 10
- Click the Windows Start Button
- Click Power
- Hold Shift button and click Restart
- The computer will restart to advanced mode where you can troubleshoot and access advanced options.
- Click Troubleshoot
- Click Change Startup Behaviour
- Click Restart.
- When the systems restarts, press 7 to disable Driver Signature Enforcement
==> Go to Device manager
==> Expand any of the classes of device
==> Click on Action on the top menu
==> Select Add legacy hardware
==> Click Next
==> Click Next again
==> Click Have Disk…
==> Select the driver you wish to install from the list of available drivers. If you see more than one listed, depending on the driver package you download, simply select the desired driver.
==> You’ll see a popup about the driver not being signed. Click Install this driver anyway
The driver is now ready to be installed once you connect your device in META mode.
If you’re installing VCOM Driver in order to Flash ROM on a device, you need to restart the process after the driver installs.
