Installing USB Flash Drivers

To connect phone in flashing mode, and perform tasks like flashing the main firmware, FS or to upload files to FS you must have USB Flash drivers installed on your computer.

With out installing USB Flash drivers, you can’t use XS++ or SeTool 2 lite or JDFlasher.

In good old days we used to use SEUS to do this automatically for us, but now SEUS updates phone to CID53 which is not desirable, so hence we install USB Flash Drivers manually. Here is the tutorial ! Please read the tutorial carefully and completely and also check out the video tutorial given !

Download the necessary drivers.

1. XP Install.
2. Vista Install.
3. Automatic Installer. (Recommended for New users)

Important Note: If your phone C key and Power On button are the same then Hold 2+5 while connecting phone to USB Data cable instead of C key. In many new SE phones the C key is same as power on.

1. Installing Drivers (for Windows XP)

Then unpack the downloaded archive to a directory, your choice. (Use WinRAR to extract from archive)

1. Switch OFF your phone !
2. Remove the battery !
3. Reinsert your battery !
4. Don’t start your phone !
5. HOLDING ‘C’ on your phone, connect your phone to USB Cable ! (or 2+5 in new A2 SE phones)
