Universal ADB driver for all Windows versions include 8 [Download]

If you have ever rooted your Android device or loaded custom ROM on it, chances are that some or other time, you would have had issues with the drivers.  Windows 8 is another big problem, even after so many months of its launch, device drivers still continue to have problem with this OS version.

Now, thanks to known Android developer Koushik Dutta (and dev community help), we have a universal ADB (+ Fastboot) driver that should work for all Android devices (or most of them) and most Windows versions include the Windows 8.

“This driver should work on all Android phones for all versions of Windows. [1] It does not require that you turn on test signing or disable driver verification. This is done by installing ClockworkMod as a trusted certificate and publisher into the local machine’s certificate store,” Koush noted in a Google+ post.

This is a godsend for newbies, who especially have troubles with drivers.

You can download the driver from here, or take a look at its source code here.
