Well I'm giving it a try - so far, has loaded successfully in TWRP, but when it rebooted it went back to APX mode. The bootloader is still showing as "WW_epad..." when I would've thought it would
be "US_epad..." if it truly flashed properly. Currently booting back into ICS to see what I have. It's acting like the Dalvik cache was wiped & is rebuilding (I chose not to wipe it, so install must
have done it). Still have the feeling I may have to use nvflash and try flashing the blobs separately.
Will keep you posted and let me know if you find anything else out!
Well, good and bad news...it didn't fix my APX issue and I lost root. But it did update to v184.108.40.206 (running stock recovery at the moment). Even though I had SuperSU installed (and run) & made
sure OTA Rootkeeper had a root backup, there's no restore option showing. I'm tempted at this point to take the OTA update and root after...I believe there's new tools out there. Have to check
and see, but means more reading (and little time)!
And biggest is why is it still entering APX mode on reboot...I'm tempted to run "nvflash -r --download 4 blob.EBT" using the unpacked blob file from v220.127.116.11. Just a little fearful that I could
brick it even with my nvflash backups! But my take is it's not boot correctly because of that...do wish had a definite reason for that...
...found the answer to a question you'd asked? Take a second to post the solution; it'll provide future help to others!
