Workaround For Flash’s Low FPS on Asus Transformer

asus_tablet_02-300x300

Quite possibly, one of the only annoyances that plagues the Honeycomb stock browser is its inability to properly use its full 30 fps potential on flash videos. At least, this seems to be the case for a few custom roms in certain devices like the Asus Transformer. After doing a bit of looking around, XDA member Roach2010 found something interesting regarding a file that does not get installed after updating Flash Player versions. Discuss, decided to experiment a bit with this file and found that placing it back where it belongs allows the stock browser to play any flash video at 30 fps.

So far, the results seem to be promising, but not a whole lot of people have tested this. The dev has put it in a flashable package, so . . . READ ON »

Modify The Transformer’s Dock Layout

ASUS-Eee-Pad-Transformer-dock

Obviously, there are standards for everything in this world. The most widely used keyboard layout is known as QWERTY, because of the first six letters in the top left corner of the keyboard. However, despite this being standard, it is not the only way a keyboard can be laid out. Other parts of the world have special characters in their keyboards, like Spanish speaking countries, where the keyboard includes the letter “ñ” , and this is just to give you an example. Whichever style you may be used to, you will be certainly glad that XDA member fizban007 wrote up this wonderful guide on how to change the layout of the Transformer’s keyboard. The dev spent a considerable amount of time doing trial . . . READ ON »

Mount Your Transformer Onto Linux Mint (And Others)

linuxmint

So, one of the most annoying drawbacks of the Asus Transformer is the fact that you pretty much cannot mount the device onto your computer to see and check the contents of your device. This is something that most eons for most devices have nowadays, yet the powerful Honeycomb tablet seems to lack this functionality that we are so used to. For Linux distrust in general, this is usually a bit of a bigger ordeal to get this up and running, yet some of our devastated still manage to turn seemingly difficult tasks into a matter of a few clicks. This time, XDA member rootblock has released a small script to be run in Linux Mint, which is a flavor of Linux. The script is fairlyeasy to run, and once it is run, it will allow you to plu. . .

ASUS Releases Kernel Source for Transformer

ASUS_EeePadTransformer_4

It looks like the life of all the kernel developers working on the ASUS Transformer is about to get leaps and bounds easier. According to a thread started by XDA member Roach2010, ASUS finally released the much awaited kernel sources of 8.4.4.5, which is the latest and greatest to come from the manufacturer. This is the 3.1 kernel that most devs were waiting on in order to iron out the bugs from the existing 3.1 custom kernel. What this means for end users in its current state? Not an awful lot, but it will have great impact on the existing kernels. So, get your batteries charged and your recovery ready because your current kernel is going bye bye.

If you know anything about kernel development and would like to contri. . . READ ON »

Voodoo Soundpatch for Asus Transformer

voodoo amp

The sound of the SRS speakers in the Asus Transformer has been loaded with issues and haunted by what many believe are hardware defects. However, over the last couple of weeks, our devs have been putting out fixes and patches for things such as the balance of both speakers. Since things are working now, it is time to start improving them a bit and this is just what XDA Recognized Developer supercurio had in mind. According to him, the tablet from Asus comes loaded with a good set of sound drivers that make it compatible with one of his most infamous fixes (if you come from the SGS world, you will likely recognize this in no time), Voodoo Sound. This is being made available for Transformer users and tweaked specificall. . . READ ON »

Easily Simply Just Root Your 3.1 ASUS Transformer

Asus-Eee-Pad-Transformer-Hacked

So, if nothing else could be said about Honeycomb latest update for the Transformer, it is rather smooth and people (quite possible for the first time in the site’s history) are actually happy with stock. It is fluid, stable, and very much usable. As such, many members are leaning towards keeping the device stock, but would love to have an easy way to root the device to be able to do things such as Titanium Backup, using Root Explorer, and a few other things. XDA member mashi provided us with a rather simple method to do just that. You will not have CWM doing this, or a few other things that you may be used to having on rooted roms, but you will have the ability to do a lot more with your stock rom than what ASUS intende. . .

Use Your Asus Transformer As A Free Phone

google_voice_thumb

The beauty of our Android devices is that they don’t have to be phones to act as such and allow you to make and receive calls. There are a wide variety of programs that can be used to communicate with others via either voice or video. However, several of these require the other user to be using the same service and some are even paid if you need to make phone calls. There are a few tutorials for different devices on how to get free phone service scattered throughout the site, but not all of them work on every device. Luckily, XDA member MagnusRagnarok decided to post a guide for Asus Transformer users that will allow them, in a few simple steps, to get that extra piece of missing functionality on this, otherwise, qu. . .

Did You Brick Your Transformer While Updating? Hope Lies Ahead…

ASUS_EeePadTransformer_4

Just a few days ago, it was posted in our forums that the security key for the ASUS Transformer was found, and as a consequence, people were both happy and confused regarding its importance. About 2 days ago, we posted a possible how to guide regarding the possibility of flashing Karmic Koala on the device. This is a process that requires a tool to flash to the nvflash, which requires said keys. Now, XDA member rayman84, who is also responsible for the very first custom kernel developed for this device, comes bearing the ultimate gift for Transformer owners. The dev came up with a tool to perform this kind of flashing, but this one is used for a much better purpose than flashing, and that is to recover from a bad flash. . . . READ ON »

Asus Transformer Minor Teardown

IMG_5997

Asus EeePad Transformer owners out there might have heard or experienced the lightbleed issues posted around here in the forums. XDA forum member hybridau was suffering from a light bleed spot and decided to try to do something about it.

In order to get to fix the issue, the XDA member performed a minor disassemble of his Transformer, however was not able to completely remove the issue. He did however manage to make the light bleed less intense and under normal light conditions and 60% brightness, the bleed is no longer very noticeable.

As part of the disassemble, the XDA member took a few photos and has warned any other members who are thinking of attempting this, that the bezel is very fragile, although once remov. . . READ ON »
