Froyo on… ASUS Transformer?

You have got to love how past, present, and future can meet in our devices. In a rather kafka-esque type of event, the Android bee has turned itself into a delicious treat because it seems that some Asus Transformers that went for a few customers left with Froyo installed in them. As odd as this may seem, something with as much hardware power as the Transformer should run Froyo rather decently, which is good news for those out there for whom Honeycomb is not as sweet as they would want it to be. XDA member SlimDan22 has posted a thread with a couple of dumps (one of them partial) for devs to play with. As an added bonus, the dump seems to contain several diagnostics tools, which revealed a few interesting things such as the possible existence of FM radio hardware living in the tab.

If you think that you can help to figure out this weird backward development, please drop by the thread and leave some comments.

A few users have gotten Transformers with Android 2.2 installed with diagnostic tools included. So far there have been 3 confirmed users who have gotten these units. We only got a partial system dump so far, the user who provided it was persuaded into doing a data wipe which erased many diagnostic tools

You can find more information in the dump thread.

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks.

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
