HTC doesn’t distribute drivers separately, so you’ll have to install the HTC Sync. And if you are looking forward to try things like S-Off, Root, Custom ROMs and themes, etc. I would suggest you to uninstall the HTC Sync while not installing the drivers since HTC Sync may cause trouble with the procedures related to S-Off, Rooting, etc.
Yes, one can uninstall the HTC Sync separately than HTC Drivers. Just go to Remove programs screen on your Windows PC and you’ll find the drivers and Sync installed separately.
So, download the latest HTC Sync and install it so that the drivers will also get installed automatically. You need to download the HTC Sync form HTC’s website — this will also make sure that you get the latest drivers. Here’s how to download and install latest HTC Sync and Drivers:
- Simply go htc.com — this will automatically open the HTC’s website for your region.
- Then click on “Support”.
- On the next page, select your phone from the drop-down list under “Choose Your product”.
- Hit “Downloads” tab.
- HTC Sync will be listed there titled as “Application – HTC Sync for all HTC Android Phones & HTC Smart”. Click the Download button to begin the downloading.
- Double click the downloaded file to begin installation. When it’s installed, you have the latest drivers.
To remove the HTC Sync, go to “My Computer” and select uninstall programs. Then, without touching the HTC Drivers, uninstall the HTC Sync.
