There are many reasons why someone would need to go back to stock. They may need to return a device for replacement, they might want to install an OTA, or they may have rooted their device and broken a necessary feature. Whatever it may be, a good guide to return to unrooted stock can be almost as important as the root guide for certain users. There is now a return-to-stock guide for the ASUS Transformer TF300T that works and isn’t very difficult to follow.
To get started, users will need to download the Android SDK to get access to ADB and Fastboot. From there, it’s a matter of finding the correct stock firmware and installing it. Users are directed to go to the official ASUS website to get the stock firmw. . . READ ON »

Jelly Bean has been rolling out across XDA at a fervent pace. Between it being released for the latest Nexus devices and developers releasing it for a variety of other devices, Jelly Bean is quickly making its way everywhere.
One of the most recent devices to get a fresh taste of Jelly Bean is the ASUS Transformer TF300T. Developed as a preview for the much anticipated CyanogenMod 10, XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD got Jelly Bean 4.1.1 working on the TF300T until CM10 was complete enough to compile from.
As is to be expected for early builds of Jelly Bean, the ROM is a little rough. About half of the main features work, and about half don’t work. The current list of working features include:

Just about three months ago, we brought you news that the Team Win Recovery Project had received a massive update to version 2.1. April’s release largely heralded the start of a new age in recoveries—where one would no longer have to deal with cumbersome menus, instead interacting with a very user-friendly GUI.
It wasn’t simply about the GUI either. In addition to bringing an unrivaled level of UI polish, TWRP 2.1 offered users many advanced features such as update.zip queuing, a basic file manager, and dual storage support for Nandroid backups. Additionally, TWRP added support for the open source scripting engine OpenRecoveryScript, which works in conjunction with the pr. . . READ ON »
Debugfs Auto Root Brings Latest One-Click Method to Transformer Prime, Original Transformer, and TF300T

Many devices in the Android world have the capacity to share software. As anyone who frequently visits the Sony Xperia line up sub forums can tell you, a single modification for a device can often be used on a myriad of devices. Sometimes, it’s a simple performance mod or a theme, but other times it’s something important—like a root method. We recently brought you news of a method to root the Transformer TF300T without downgrading, and it turns out that this method can also be used for the Asus Transformer Prime.

As we’ve mentioned previously, when a new firmware update comes out, it’s not always certain that a new root method will be found quickly. Sometimes when a root method is found, it requires downgrading to an older firmware, rooting, then updating to a prerooted build of the new firmware again. This not only adds a number of potentially risky steps to what used to be an easy process, but can also be time consuming. This is the problem currently being faced by owners of the ASUS Transformer TF300T, as the current root method for newer firmwares involves downgrading to an older firmware first.
There is a new method, however, which can root the TF300T without downgrading. The process is a bit complicated. . . READ ON »

It was bound to happen sooner or later. With the Asus release of the unlocker tool for the TF300T, everyone could probably guess that development on the modest, yet still awesome tablet would start picking up, as developers now have no obstacles blocking their path. And now thanks to the official release of experimental CyanogenMod 9 builds, Asus Transformer TF300T owners now have access to the popular AOSP-derived, multi-device aftermarket firmware.
XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD of Team Hacksung has released an experimental build of the popular ROM for users to try out. And frankly, for a ROM labeled as experimental, it’s surprisingly functional and doesn’t have a lot broken.

A few weeks ago, a petition was started by XDA Senior Member wideopn11 to get the bootloader of the Asus Transformer TF300T unlocked. The demands were simple—to provide the same type of utility tool that unlocked the Asus Transformer Prime. It’s only fair, right?
Well, Asus responded. Unlike Motorola, who seems to enjoy infuriating their rooted users, they said okay. XDA Forum Member maspro has posted a new thread after finding out that Asus has released version 7 of their unlocker utility. The big update? It’s now compatible with the Transformer TF300T!
For those who don’t remember how it’s done. The unlocker tool is a simple apk file that users install and run. The app then c. . . READ ON »

For those unfamiliar with the ASUS Transformer TF300T, it’s a tablet from Asus aimed at delivering the quad-core processor and most of the other awesomeness of the Asus Transformer Prime at a more wallet-friendly price. In fact, just four days ago, we created forums for the device. And as some poor college guys will tell you, it’s nice when the company remembers to release a more affordable version without artificially limiting things too badly.
While Asus did a pretty good job with the TF300T, there is always room for improvement, and now users can get a hold of a few modifications to make their TF300T even better. XDA Recognized Developer seanzscreams has posted a few build.prop tweaks that . . . READ ON »

Another day, another forum here on XDA-Developers. And today, we bring you several. Starting with the tablet world, we added forums for the Asus Transformer TF300T and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (both the 7.0 and 10.1 variants). The Asus offering brings similar features to that of its sibling, the Transformer Prime, but with a more wallet-friendly price. Swapping out the acclaimed Super-IPS display for a more standard (but still vibrant) IPS panel, but retaining its Nvidia Tegra 3 powerhouse, the TF300T is no slouch. On the other end of the alphabet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and 10.1 offer fantastic displays and competent dual-core processors for $250 and $400, respectively.
On the phone end of the spectr. . . READ ON »
