NVFlash for the Asus TF300

The Asus Transformer series share a few things in common with its different iterations: bleeding edge hardware (at the time of release), latest OS, a lousy GPS (someone had to say it), and a special group of developers (including XDA Recognized Developers and forum members rayman, lilstevie, kmdm, apache14 and IEFtm). This peculiar individual is the reason why most Asus devices are, for the most part, unbrickable, and also why some are able enjoy the goodness of Ubuntu through NVFlash operations.

In case you have a TF300 and cannot help but wonder why this option is not available for your device (especially if you are an owner of the original Transformer), we are glad to inform you that your wait is over. Rayman has successfully (in one sleepless night according to him) developed and released NVFlash for the wallet-friendly TF300.

There are a few caveats that you need to be aware of prior to applying this on your TF300—the most important being that if you wish to revive a device, this will not work as it is a tool designed to prevent a Transformer from transforming into a brick and not to get it back from that state. Also, since the bootloader changed (and was relocked) with the latest JB update, you will need to make sure that you did NOT update your device to official JB. Aside from these issues, backing your device up and having this on your device will allow you to always recover from a bad flash, even if you somehow mess up the bootloader!

Please take this for a spin, but remember that as with most procedures of this kind, you can seriously damage your device if you try to skip steps or don’t follow directions. Have fun!

 After a hard day of extra testing, we’re proud to announce Nvflash for TF300.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
