How to Install LibUSB on Windows 7 & Vista 64-bit

LibUSB is a very important library which is used by many freeware programs to put your iPhone into recovery mode or force it to exit the recovery mode just with a single click. Recboot and EasyiRecovery both requires LibUSB installed on your computer to function properly. Installing LibUSB on 32-bit operating systems is easy but many users who own x64 systems were facing some issues while installing LibUSB. The following guide will explain you how to install LibUSB on Windows 7 and Vista 64-bit editions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do NOT follow this guide if you are trying to kick your iDevice out of recovery mode loop and want to use Recboot or EasyiRecovery. For some reason, LibUSB will disable your keyboard and mouse on next reboot and to fix this, you must uninstall LibUSB by booting into safe mode. As TinyUmbrella DO NOT require you to install LibUSB, so it is always recommended to use it instead.

    Read this, if you are one of these estupids who did the tuto, (I am one of them), and later read the comments, DON T GET IN PANIC. there is one easy way to fix it before you restart your pc, go to start choose panel control them look for system and security, into system choose device manager them look for the device you did the tuto (if you unplug it, plug it again) and wait to show up in listed devices, now you have to uninstall the driver and it s done, restart your pc again and thats all, your usb driver are all OK.

    okey you dont understand my problem:D

    i used libusb for a gamecontroller (ps3) and install it manually at hardware devices, with hardware id etc….but now i want to use another gamecontroller (speedlink) but my windows show me the same hardware id from the ps3 controller for my speedlink controller. because i installed it with “Add Hardware Wizard” (your step) …
    i installed it with “hdwwiz” and “setup.inf” and now every gamecontroller i want to use have the same hardware id like my first controller like i wrote in setup.inf … so how i can cancel this step…

  •  
    fynn4 years, 10 months ago

    I did all these steps to be able to use recboot because my iphone 3g is stuck in recovery mode and im trying to get it to work again, over the last few days i have spent hours going through these turorials and am now at my wits end! I really cant get it to work.
    I need to get the iphone out of recovery mode so that i can jailbreak it and then unlock but my problem is i tried it beofre and went wrong somewhere and now it has the latest baseband and that stops itunes from being able to restore it.
    Any help woould be very much appriciated.

    •  
      Wolverine5 years, 5 months ago

      What is your current baseband and which firmware you are restoring? Also have you tried TinyUmbrella http://bit.ly/bWtu6v to kick your iPhone out of recovery?

    Wow after going through that whole process of breaking my PC with this technique and then fixing it myself reading this thread….tried the Tinyumbrella thing that the guys wrote about above. I clicked on the device and Exit recovery and it was done. Combine this with other tutorials on how to downgrade from iOS 4 to 3.3.2 and it works fine. Good luck all.

    •  
      Paul5 years, 5 months ago

      Haha, finaly someone who followed the instructions instead of coming here and not reading the comments and freaking out.

      Tiny Umbrella FTFW!

      Also, I gave up trying to downgrade to 3.3.2 because when you go to iclarify (google it) and follow their detailed and amazing instructions on how to jailbreak your phone from 4.2.1 it is waaaaay easier and productive. Only catch is you have to update your baseband to that of the iPad which they say may cause damage to your GPS but that did not affect my iPhone 3G in the slightest. I’m all over the world now using my phone with many different countries sims and it is great!!!

    Stew5 years, 6 months ago

    So I did this hoping that it could solve my locked dellema. My ipod is locked and I can’t send it into dfu/recovery since the power buttons jammed and because I sold away my original computer that I used to sync it recently.
    I followed the instructions exactly, hoping that it would work.
    After restarting my computer (like the instruction said)
    now all this got me was my windows not starting up properly and my computer getting all screwed up, and I go into safe mode to see if MAYBE it can still send my ipod in recovery, and it doesn’t work.

    Hey, I ran into same boot issues as above with USB devices (mouse/keyboard) not working in Windows 7 64bit. So I plugged in an old keyboard and uninstalled LibUSB and ReadyDriver.

    I lunched my Windows XP 32bit VMWare image and installed iTunes, LibUSB and simply ran recboot and clicked on exit recovery button. It worked! I didn’t have to follow steps 1, 2, and 3 (simply only installed LibUSB).

    That was my experience. Hope it helps someone.

    Paul5 years, 8 months ago

    This is one of the worst tutorials on the internet. I’ll tell you why:

    You alter your computer beyond what a normal computer user should be trusted to do. I’ve got a brand new computer, a week old, and now my anti-virus software is going haywire and won’t accept updates. I did everything as stated after freaking out and having to do a recovery (I had no internet so couldn’t find a solution online without it). I had to reinstall this nightmare on my laptop then uninstall it and get ANOTHER bit of software just to smooth it over and alter my booting options. Come on people, this is NOT good for your computer.

    What’s worse is it isn’t even necessary. You can use tiny umbrella to do the same thing for an iPhone stuck in recovery and all it requires is java and .Net 4 framework.

    DO NOT DO THIS TUTORIAL, it is not good for your computer one bit. You’re messing with the boot folder and drivers, which is idiotic!!! I can’t stress this enough. Instead just go here:

    I am using windows 7 and server 2003 originally. Yes dual OS. And I am using wireless mouse and keyboard with receivers plug in USB ports.

    I installed the libUSB in the windows 7 OS.

    After I installed the libUSB, ReadyDriver Plus is shown up in the OS selection list. I choose to enter windows 7 OS. Then all the USB port will be dead, no power no signal. I also tried to enter safe mode, same thing happen to my USB ports. and I find no other ports for my old mouse and keyboard. I have no control after entering windows 7 even when I am in safe mode.

    Please help out here. Thank you!!

      Well, I tried to reply to you but the persons who moderate this blog refused to approve my replies. (probably because I included an html link, oooh!)

      Dont’ install this software, it’s harmful to your computer. This tutorial is idiotic.

      Google a free program called ‘tiny umbrella’ that only requires java and .NET 4 to operate and it does the same thing, if not better for your iPod stuck in recovery. no libusb needed.

    I have downloaded libusb and kind of hesitant in using since I see everyone having issues. Nonetheless when I go to the drop down menu for it I see :

    Windows 95
    Windows 98/ Windows ME

    etc….There is no Windows XP/Vista/7 options. I downloaded this directly from libusb.org so I assumed it was current but it shows nothing but old OS nothing current. Do you have a link to download libusb with the Windows XP options?

    1. Insert your windows installation disc and restarted you computer.
    2. Choose your language settings, and then click “Next”
    3. Click “Repair your computer.”

    But when I put my disk in and restart my computer and run the pair nothing happens it just goes back to the same screen. I also tried doing a system restore, it comes u p with the message system restore failed

    Tim5 years, 11 months ago

    Solved:
    Reinstalled as in the tuturial above (May not have completely installed correctly the first time or my antivirus screwed ip up as i did run a scan afterwards and it quarantinned something). Then entered safe mode to uninstall libusb AND readyboot 1.1. Back to normal. Turns out i un-jailbroke and went back to 4.1 because i lost my bill pay and check book app data and all of my camera roll pics due to me not syncing with windows media gallery ever with my i phone. I’ll wait till they crack 4.1 on 3gs. It did work though!!! Thanks again!
    PS: You left out the last screen shot in the installation of readyboot. It showed 3 options with check boxes. I didn’t know what to do so i unchecked them all. Maybe add that for us. later.

    Kyle5 years, 12 months ago

    I followed the instructions, but it didn’t work.

    Not only that, but my computer doesn’t boot normally now. I get a “Ready Driver Plus” option when my computer starts. If I click on it, it says it can’t boot because of an error in the C:boot/boot.bin file. If I click on the “Windows 7” option, it loads normally *until* I get to Windows. Then my USB ports and internet are totally dead. I have to System Restore to get things back to normal, however I still get that annoying black screen when starting to boot up (asking me which platform to load into: Windows 7 or Ready Driver Plus).

    Any ideas?

    •  
      Wolverine5 years, 12 months ago

      No need to restore, its normal. Just uninstall LibUSB from Add / Remove Programs and reboot your PC. All sound and wifi drivers will work fine. Follow the procedure again. It happened to me once but it worked for the 2nd time.

      •  
        Kyle5 years, 12 months ago

        Thanks for the quick reply. I will give this a try in a few days (running out now, unfortunately).

        I had previously restored and then tried again a few times.

        Though my comp is fine now, I have 3 annoying entries for “Ready Driver Plus” on my Boot Manager (one for each time I tried this). LibUSB is off my computer, but these entries are still on the Boot Manager right when I turn the computer on.

        Any idea on how to get rid of those?

        Thx again.

        •  
          Wolverine5 years, 12 months ago

            Kyle5 years, 12 months ago

            Odd…though it has 3 extra “Ready Driver Plus” entries on my boot menu, under the Boot tab in MSCONFIG, it just has the one for Windows 7 in there. I tried rebooting, same deal. Suppose it’s not a huge deal.

            Also, i uninstalled the libusb…. if i want to install it again… i need to do the same stuff of the folders?

            parko5 years, 9 months ago

            Guys, Wolverine is right. Use EasyBCD. You can control the bootup menu such as not having the Ready plus whatever show up.

            First, you want to uninstall Ready Plus and Lib from your system. After that, download and install EasyBCD. Got to the Edit tab. You will see Windows 7 or whatever yours is and Ready Plus. Highlight Ready Plus and delete it.

            Second, near the bottom of the program you’ll see a checkbox for skip boot menu. Check it, save and restart. You’ll see that you will boot normally again.

            Luck.

          WARNING: Create a restore point but hat won’t prevent the same Boot Manager mess I got as described by Kyle: “I followed the instructions, but it did’t work.

          Not only that, but my computer doesn’t boot normally now. I get a “Ready Driver Plus” option when my computer starts. If I click on it, it says it can’t boot because of an error in the C:boot/boot.bin file. If I click on the “Windows 7? option, it loads normally *until* I get to Windows. Then my USB ports and internet are totally dead. I have to System Restore to get things back to normal, however I still get that annoying black screen when starting to boot up (asking me which platform to load into: Windows 7 or Ready Driver Plus).”

          Following this “Install LibUSB on Windows 7” tutorial really messed up my Vaio VPCF115FM running Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate, no more: wired internet, Logitech G700 mouse, Vaio special function buttons, SmartWifi utility and what not are all messed up. While System Restore fixed the OS, the Windows Boot Manager now has a new entry like I would have a dual OS boot. Got to find a way to fix the boot.bin file that was not fixed with restore. I guess the author never tried his procedure on a similar OS!

          •  
            Wolverine5 years, 10 months ago

            You are right, it happened to me twice but it worked 3rd time. Anyways you can remove the new entry in Windows Boot Manager by downloading a program called EasyBCD!

      •  
        mark5 years, 9 months ago

        Hey. I also had the boot option problem, even after removing LibUSB from the system. To solve, I started in safe mode, went to C:\BOOT, and selected the uninstall.exe file. After another restart the problem was resolved.

        Now back to square one, an iPhone in recovery mode…. =[

        WOW check out all you angry birds !!! First off this guy did not “brick” your phone “YOU” did all he is doing it handing out free help so just back off him he did a good job!Now this worked flawlessly for me with no issues what so ever :Windows 7 ultimate 64bit sony vioiPhone 3 GS 8GWhat i did was i installed libusb as he instructed but i did not re-boot my laptop i ran iTunes did restore with 3.1.3 (this was a downgrade from 4.x.x that caused the loop) and got the iTunes error message , then i used recboot and it failed so i used tinyumbrella to kick my device which worked 1st time , i then uninstalled libusb and rebooted laptop.Done Phone working fine againThank you Ben Johnson and Jaxov !!!!!
