Have you recently purchased an Asus PadFone 2 or can’t wait to get your hands on one? Me neither. However, there does seem to be something of a market for a device that is essentially the Android powered equivalent of Master Blaster or Krang. If people had no interest in such a device, we probably wouldn’t have seen a follow up to the original PadFone.
If you are a PadFone 2 owner and have somehow found yourself here on XDA, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll be looking to hack and tweak the device to a certain extent. If so, you’ll more than likely want to begin with the good old fashioned three Rs: root, recovery, and ROM. Luckily, XDA Senior Member Lidenburg has put together a multi function script that allows you to take care of all that and more from a single window. Incidentally this script was created with help from the tutorial on creating such tools that we featured last week, by XDA Recognized Contributor eraste. There you have it; the system works.
Aside from rooting, installing a custom recovery and flashing Lidenburg’s custom ROM, the script will allow you to flash custom battery modifications and backup your framewok-res.apk in case you’d like to revert those changes, flash a modified animation framework to the device, and more.
