[RECOVERY] CWM 6.0 recovery for the ASUS ME172v (memopad)
Hi guys so after a long time I finally present to you the Clockworkmod recovery made for the ASUS MemoPad (ME172V)
Please note that this is a RC version and still needs a few more adjustments. However it's functional and mostly safe to use.
Now before you do anything read the guide carefully first and after that continue to flashing.
* Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this recovery
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
What you need:
1.A ME172V tablet charged at least to 50%
2.A USB cable for transferring files.
3.A minimum 4GB microSD card formated to FAT32 (If it's formated to NTFS you'll have to reformat it)
4.A microSD computer adapter (optional)
Ok so first you are gonna need to root this tablet.
For that we will use frank_que's root utility which can be found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=263
You extract the root zip on the root of your SD card. After you've done that, power off your tablet and insert the card now power it up again. The tablet will show a blue screen with 3 options. Using volume buttons go to root me172v and confirm via the power button. After that just follow the onscreen instructions and you will be fine.
2. SYSTEM DUMP
After that you're gonna have to create a dump of your current system files. This time we will use frank_que's system dump utility which can also be found on the link above (get version 2). So you do the same thing as you did for root (NOTE that you have to delete the root script from the SD card first) only this time instead of root you should select create dump. After a while the device will shut itself down.
Once you have the dump, remove the SD card and turn the tablet on. In the meantime open the SD card and inside you will see a me172v folder and inside it a folder named dump. In the dump folder replace the mmcblk1p3.img file with the one you got here.
After that, power off the tablet and insert the SD card into it. Now power on the tablet, and when the blue screen shows select restore a previously saved dump and confirm with power. Now it will restore the partition backups made earlier only this time it will restore a modified recovery partition. After that is complete again the tablet will shut down. You remove the SD card and power it on.
In order to boot to recovery, you have to use adb since there is no button combo (yet). To do that use
You can do that with the terminal emulator on the tablet itself too (just without the adb shell command).
Now it should boot into a touch-enabled CWM.
: In order to flash system files, you have to go to Mounts and storage and manually mount the /system partition.
: For now you can only install zips from the internal memory. Installation from the SD card is being worked on.
: Remember to delete the script from the SD card because if you don't when you restart your tablet with that SD card inside it will start up the script.
Many thanks to franq_que for making the dump and root utilites, then thanks to crazykiddo for testing this recovery and last but not least to cybojenix for teaching me everything I know about Android as well as making some edits to this recovery.
