Thumbs up [GUIDE] [How-to] CM11 Official Nightly on PRIME

This is a simple tutorial on how to flash CM11 kitkat on a transformer prime. Like everyone else says no warranty.

The prime is almost identical to the TF300T. So we flash a TF300T version of CM11. The only side effects are that your device is recognized as a TF300T instead of a TF201.

First follow the guide on installing nvflash and making your device brickproof found here. https://www.androidroot.mobi/pages/g...ash-jellybean/
Remember to use the one for your device the TF201, I haven't tested using another devices bootloader on our device but it will probably brick your device so don't do it.

After you complete the guide above it is time to upgrade to the Hairybean bootloader. The thread is http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2407248 You need the following file http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23060877490002899
You will flash that via recovery

Once you are done with that get the TWRP recovery from http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23329332407579270 the thread is http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2691886
Flash that via recovery as well.

Now it is time to get CM11. You can get it directly from the cyanogenmod website. http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=tf300t
I downloaded 3-25-2014 but I would go with the newest build at the time of flashing. Again flash that via recovery. Also flash gapps, you can get it from here http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Gapps

Then just reboot. It may take a while for the first boot but everything is working. I have had trouble with GPS but I'm not sure if that is the rom or not.

Hope that this helps. Press thanks if it does.

I have installed the CM11 for the TF201 and runs quite well.

Can I TF300T rom.zip flash with CWM. Do I have something to consider.
If it does not work the TF300T Rom. I can flash the backup from TF201 again

Is that correct?

You should be able to flash back to TF201 although you may have to change your recovery back to a TF201 recovery first and depending on the rom may need to downgrade your bootloader from hairybean to stock. pretty much the reverse of what you did to get the TF300T roms.

As far as using CWM it should work if it supports 4.4.2 roms. Some roms want the hairybean bootloader some want stock. Also some update.zip check device name in recovery and others don't. If it fails with wrong device error or ro.device not correct or something along those lines you will need to change to a TF300T recovery but that is easy and reversable.

I hope that this helps.

You will need the Hairybean bootloader. I tried without it and it didn't boot. Also the LED on the camera woks fine. However there is no flashlight app.

Default overclock

Thankyou very much for posting this, having cm11 on the prime is great.
This way of getting cm11 isnt as laggy as Namidairo version, hats off to him too for keeping the prime alive.
My question is, when i go into the performance option in settings, i put the processor in performance mode, it should be cappable of 1.4ghz , but is maxing out at 1.2ghz.
Is there a way of overclocking, i dont want to go to crazy and goto fast, just get what i know is possible, 1.4 - 1.5 maybe.
Can I flash tf300t kernel, or is that not possible?
Thanks again, Happy flashing

About overclocking... i dont wanna this too, use an app that controls frequencies, im using no-frills cpu control, and my max clock is set to 1.4 and the statistics show that only 14% of the time is used that speed, so its nice, but remember if all the cores are in use in our primes (i cant remember 3 or 4 of them) the max speed is 1.3 mhz, one core at max is 1.4mhz, (please correct me, if im wrong).

About Namidairo's rom, yes, hats off to him!!!

You can overclock. The clock speeds are controlled by the performance mode. Set it to performance instead of balanced or battery saver and it will go to higher clocks. Also, you can flash the Grimlock kernel for speeds up to 1.8Ghz! thread here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2603015 download link here http://forum.xda-developers.com/devd...3448#downloads be sure to use the one for TF201.

Enjoy, glad that I could help.
