How to Install Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 Drivers

The recommended way to install Qualcomm USB Driver is via the ‘automatic’ installers (can be found in the downloads section). But for some reason, if the automatic installer does not work out for you, then you can go for manual installation.


Before proceeding, there are a few things that need to be taken care of.

  • You need to have the latest ADB and Fastboot tools on your computer. Refer this guide: Download and Install ADB and Fastboot on Windows
  • Make sure to Enable USB Debugging on your Android device.
  • If your PC is running Windows 8 or above, you need to Disable ‘Driver Signature Verification’. Follow these steps:
    • Open Command Prompt on your PC
    • Run the following code in the command window:
      bcdedit /set testsigning on
    • Reboot your computer to enter Test Mode.
    • After the Qualcomm Driver Installation is completed, exit the Test mode by executing the below code in the command prompt:
      bcdedit /set testsigning off

Once you have met the above requirements, follow the below steps:
