Yes, you can... It is a good guide if you can follow it.. You must make sure that you have the latest bootloader and compatible TWRP.. Those are very important so you are not brick your device... Good luck and ask all the questions that you have before trying to install the TWRP and bootloader...

ok so i'm having a bit of trouble following this guide...

1) I installed TWRP (with the help of this page) http://www.teamw.in/project/twrp2/105 I had to use the Download - Recovery Image / Fastboot Method because the app method wouldn't download the blob file

2) Now, when I power + volume down boot I can see my bootloader isn't the correct version. how can I update the bootloader? I have the files from the original link i posted (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2481892) so there is the correct bootloader i just don't know how to install it.

is there a more detailed guide with actual step by steps?

Congrats on getting TWRP installed! The rest is easy.
In TWRP select 'Install' and navigate to wherever you have the zip file with the bootloader/TWRP package, select it (if it has xxx signed.zip in the file name you need to check the "verify zip signature" option. sbdags usually signs his zips - don't know if he did with this one).
Swipe the button to flash the file.
When it finished, boot back to system. Do not flash a rom at this point! That would cancel the bootloader flash. Boot back into system first, then back into TWRP and then flash the rom.

BTW - flashing the modified Asus stock rom is perfectly fine, but I wonder why you don't flash CROMi-X 5.2.2?
That rom is from the same developer, based on this stock rom and miles improved since sbdags debloated the stock version.
sbdags stock rom is not really supported whereas he puts out a better version of CROMi-X about every 10 days! It's exhausting to keep up! LOL
You'll find it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2425383

You can still flash the BL/TWRP package you downloaded already. It's the same as the one for CROMi-X.

Thanks, Honestly whatever custom rom I have now can randomly reboot and i think is giving me touch screen issues so was just going to hit up a stock install and see if that fixes any problems.


gonna try out the rom you suggested and i can always go back if necessary.

one thing, when i installed theTWRP the blue bar filled up completely and i left it for about 10 minutes and it was still there. so i powered down and everything booted back up correctly (and i can get into the recovery mode).

does everything sound ok to proceed?

You have to kick it out when it is completed by using the fastboot command or just using your power button.. So you are good to go...

You have to try out all the rom and kernels that are available then choose the best one that fit your need...Good luck...
