Just wondering if anybody's tried to flash tn7 ROMs on their s7e? And does the s7e read the same model number as the tegra note? P1640?

I've been stuck trying to figure out how to adb on my slate 7 extreme for weeks. Tried every driver and every cord and port. So while I'd love to confirm that it is the same... I'm still not sure.

I was able to root it after some playing around,
you need to use the universal naked drivers (Nvidia Shield) for both adb and fastboot.
To unlock you have to specifiy the vendorid to fastboot:
fastboot -i 0x03F0 oem unlock

The util in the TN7 dev forum will not work out of the box for the S7E because it doesn't specify the vendor id to fastboot, but the supplied files will work (you can modify the .bat if you want to add the "-i 0x03F0" to fastboot). You can boot CWM to install root.

Installing the 4.4.2 system and boot partitions works and it will boot, however i am having trouble with it locking up a lot.

cool. What do you mean by locking up a lot? it often hang and jam? . So i guess, staying at 4.2.2 is the best for now?

It will work fine for up to about 10 minutes, then the screen will freeze and the only way to get it back is to hold the power down for 10 seconds and reboot it.

I am back on 4.2.2 right now, but when I have some extra time I might try a few things.

Is it possible to just have root set up on 4.2.2? Would like to keep all partitions stock if possible (as well as the bootloader). Would this help with stability issues? Sorry if these are noobish questions but thanks in advance

I tried a chinese program without luck. I just bought a keyboard which works with the wrong layout in 4.2 and works perfect with 4.4 which I have on my other devices..therefore I am really looking forward flashing it!
