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.

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...
