But exactly how do I do that?
After getting to .16, should I download the .18 dpkgfile and command file again and put it to /cache and /cache/recovery respectively then redo the boot process?
Or should I just do the OTA updates that asus sends out?
If you really get an OTA update from Asus after you downgraded (most people don't), then save the dlpkgfile from your /cache partition to a safe location, then apply it. If it takes you directly from .16 to .25, then upload the dlpkgfile for others to use, so they have a shortcut.

If you don't get OTAs, then you need to apply the incremental dlpkgfile updates one by one.

I'm doing that now - I'll adb pull the files from /cache after downgrading and then if it upgrades me directly to .25 I'll post back.

I doubt it though, I'm betting it will be incremental upgrades.

on 9.4.5.30 there is no cp binary - any other way to save the file before applying it?

OK, got the file. Confirmed 9.4.5.30 --> 10.4.4.25 Direct update.

Note: This is for US Eepad only!!!!

Uploading it now to my MF and 4Shared accts (MF is no longer paid, until I can scrounge up $$$, so I'll link both sites here - hopefully you'll be able to get it from at least one of them.

I just used this to direct update from 9.4.5.30 to 10.4.4.25 in one step and was able to successfully recover root using OTARootKeeper. Thanks for the upload johnlgalt! This was a great time saver.

thank you for this... Rooted earlier and couldnt get an OTA.

Just on .18 now.

So do I just keep doing this untill I can get an OTA or just keep going until the most recent?

That is awesome! A few days late for me as I just did the incremental update from the beginning because I had to revert back to 9.4.5.30 because I changed the system files on the 23 version and couldn't do the incremental to 25, but next time it will be a lot easier with this file! Thanks!

Hey just wanted to say.

I did this last night.

Went down to .16, .18, .20.

Left it overnight and then in the morning it had pushed OTA to .26. then upon restart OTA'd to the next then JB 4.2

Just in case try leaving it and seeing it it gets pushed over the course of 24 hours.

WW version. Thank you for your hard work.

Seems like we can root while already on JB without the need of downgrade back to ICS. If you have balls, give it a try!

Does anyone have the direct update file(dlpkgfile) from 10.4.4.25 to the last update (JB 4.2) US version available?

I delete some rom applications as root, and I have not gotten to appear OTA updates again (downgrade to ICS and incremental update don't work to me).

Thanks!
