Asus Transformer TF300T Gets Unofficial MultiROM Port

csm_ASUS_Transformer_Pad_TF300_BLUE_04_d5a206401a

The Asus Transformer TF300T is probably one of the earliest and most refined convertible tablets that the market has seen. It came with a well built and sturdy keyboard dock that featured a trackpad mouse, a full sized USB port, and even its own battery. Its insides weren’t lacking for its time either, packing a quad core processor clocking in at 1.2 GHz. With a spec sheet like this, it was no doubt a popular device with some great development history.

Two years later, the TF300T is still going strong, receiving its own unofficial port of MultiROM thanks to the efforts of XDA Senior Member f69m. As we can all assume, MultiROM lets you easily boot multiple ROMs without having to wipe and restore ROMs. F69m does make i. . . READ ON »

Generate Nvflash Blobs for Original Nexus 7 and Other Asus Tablets with Flatline

getbct

Blob files for Nvidia Tegra-powered Asus devices are incredibly useful. This is because they allow us to easily flash images to our devices using Nvflash at an extremely low level.

Given the low level at which APX (Nvflash) mode runs and how this is much more primitive than booting into a standard Android recovery partition, a device with the appropriate blobs is practically unbrickable. Thus, blob files can be used to get us out of seriously sticky situations that would otherwise be unrecoverable without major device surgery.

Naturally, you’d want to have the appropriate blobs for your device just in case anything goes wrong. Thanks to XDA Recognized Developer rayman (and the rest of the cre. . . READ ON »

CM10.1 Nightlies for the TF300T, Pre-Alpha for the Huawei Ideos X5

Cyan-10.1

With Android 4.2 development in full swing, devices old and new, big and small could be seeing CM10.1 or similar AOSP-derived offerings in the near future. Let’s face it, if the HTC HD2 can run Android 4.2, pretty much any modern device can. Now, there are CM10.1 ROMs available for the ASUS Transformer TF300T and the Huawei Ideos X5 U8800.

XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD of Team Hacksung is doing the work for the TF300T CM10.1, while the Huawei Ideos X5 is being worked on by XDA Forum Member gleb_grid. Nightlies are available for the TF300T now, whereas the Huawei Ideos X5 has a pre-alpha that needs a lot of work.

The TF300T Nightlies are actually quite stable. Among the issues reported is rotation not w. . . READ ON »

ArchLinux on the Transformer TF300T

archlinux

Running Linux on Android is an old favorite. With newer and older projects ranging from full installations to the less involved chroot method, users on a large range of devices can run Linux. The only limits are what distros of Linux you can load. Mostly, it is Ubuntu or other Debian-based distros. Now, ASUS Transformer TF300T owners can install Arch.

The method has been around for a little bit, but has been refined through updates. XDA Forum Member cb22 released the method. Although it isn’t perfect, it’s definitely a solid start. Here is a list of things currently working:

Dual boot with Android.
Internal storage and MicroSD Card
X11, with compositing
Audio
Mouse and keyboard on the dock, as well

New TF300T Unlock and Root Guide Unifies All the Others

asustransformertf300t

As device development continues on, there are more methods and guides to achieve all sorts of things. This includes new root guides for new firmwares, new recoveries as they get updates, and all sorts of other things. Thus, when searching for a guide to do something, users may be looking at an older, obsolete method. For ASUS Transformer TF300T owners, there is now such a new guide.

XDA Forum Member andoryuu3 wrote an all encompassing guide for people who may be getting a brand new Transformer TF300T for Christmas. The guide is pieced together from a number of methods found in a number of places. As androryuu3 explains:

Having recently purchased a TF300T with intent to customize the hell out of it, I ran into a b

NVFlash for the Asus TF300

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. R. . . READ ON »

Rooted and Deodexed Jelly Bean for the Transformer TF300T

ASUS1

Manufacturers do what they do and (eventually) release their latest firmwares. Here at XDA, we do what we do and hack their latest firmwares.

Recently, ASUS released the Jelly Bean-based 10.4.2.13 firmware for the Transformer TF300T. Even more recently, XDA Recognized Contributor serdu_petru has released three modified versions of the stock firmware, ranging from simple root access to root, insecure kernel, deodex, and Busybox.

These builds have since become the base for other development work on the device. If you have an ASUS Transformer TF300T and are ready for some rooted JellyBean, head over to the original thread.. . . READ ON »

ASUS Begins Rollout of Jelly Bean to Transformer TF300T

1598419770fda2b0a73d7da3c61c014314cd5471

There isn’t another tablet manufacturer out there that can match ASUS’ commitment to rolling out timely updates to it’s customers. They have consistently beaten the bigger names to updating their devices, and recently confirmed that the Transformer TF101, Transformer Prime, and Transformer Infinity would be getting the update to Android 4.1.1. Now they are beginning to follow through on that promise with an update for the Transformer TF300T.

On ASUS’ Facebook page today they made the following announcement:
