Hi guys! Trying to install sailfish x on WIn 8. In device manager, there is no 'S1Boot Fastboot'-Device.

2.4 Find the ‘S1Boot Fastboot’ device in the tree. If it is not correctly installed, it will show a warning sign.

There is no warning Sign. Trying to add a Legacy Driver with the downloaded Driver doesn't work. The driver installs, but it says, that the installed drivers may not work properly.

Skipping this step trying to fastboot with the given code says "Waiting for any device". I am really desperate. Please help! Thx!

I used Win 10 and everything went well. Is it possible for you to convert to Win 10? I am sorry not being able to help anyway.

Not in the near future, sorry.

Try a different USB Port and rebooting after installing the driver. Also make sure to have the newest USB drivers installed for your board.

@pillenpepi: Did you have your Xperia connected to your Win8 PC in the fastboot mode (i.e. blue LED lit on Xperia) when checking the device manager?

@leszek: I will try tomorrow. I hope, I'll have the time to try the installation once again.

I've seen some troubles with Windows USB drivers. I suggest removing all of them and then refresh the device list where you can reinstall them.

Also Zadig can prove itself very useful on that regard.
