Turn ASUS Updates Into CWM Flashable Roms

It looks like the development efforts for the Asus Transformer are beginning to kick into high gear now that more people are being able to get their hands on one of these tablets. One of the latest lucky devs to get their hands on one was XDA Recognized Developer supercurio, who wrote something very useful for those people who are interested in flashing updates cooked by Asus. The script in essence will turn every stock Rom update into a flashable zip file to use with CWM. This has the added advantage of flashing stock and not losing root or CWM in the process. By the way, in case you are wondering, you cannot flash a stock Rom via custom recovery. The system will simply not allow you to do this. Then again, if you went through all the trouble of rooting this, getting it undone just for a stock Rom seems kinda pointless.

Are you liking for a way to get that 3.1 update and staying stock? Then, look no further. Please leave your feedback and comments.

I wrote a little tool for my dev usage but it might be interesting for you too:

Its purpose is to repack an update zip as delivered by ASUS to a ClockworkMod recovery standard update.zip
Recovery is not replaced so you keep your custom one installed.

You can find more information in the original thread.

While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
