Angry [ROM]★★★[TF701T KitKat 4.4.4][CROMBi-kk 20140714][DEODEX | CM11 Base][JULY 14]★★★




TF701T USERS: YOU MUST BE UNLOCKED, ON THE ASUS STOCK JB 4.3 BOOTLOADER VERSION 10.26.1.18 AND HAVE A WORKING RECOVERY - CWM 6.0.4.6+ BEFORE FLASHING THIS ROM. SEE UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS IN POST 2 IF YOU ARE UNSURE

Angry How to Upgrade!

HOW TO FLASH
Make sure you have prepared by copying the ROM zip file to your internal SD Card or external SD Card first.

Please Unlock using the Asus Unlock Tool first found here.
Note installing and running this app will wipe your device and void your warranty.

You can flash CWM 6.0.4.7 using the instructions here.
Direct File Link is here.

To flash a recovery you need to have the fastboot.exe file and cwm recovery.img file in the same folder.
Right click + shift on the folder they are in and choose open command prompt here

Boot into the Bootloader by either booting with the Power and Volume Down Buttons held down until you get the 3 icons or by typing the following into the command prompt.

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Then type the following commands to flash the recovery image:

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
Start the recovery by making sure the RCK icon is highlighted (use volume down to move) and push volume up to select.
If you need to move to the latest bootloader then manually install the 10.26.1.18 firmware from the Asus website.

In recovery choose install zip - install zip from /sdcard and maneuver to the folder you put the rom.zip (vol up and down) and select it using power button.

The AROMA installer will start - as we have no touch screen drivers in CWM yet you will have to use VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN to navigate and POWER to select. Choose as many options as you require ;)

Finally reboot when finished. :)

Angry Extras!

BIG RED WARNING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE MISSING ROOT!

You are not. The way CM11 works is root is not enabled by default after a clean install. Here is how you enable it.

1. Enable developer options by clicking the build number 7 times in settings - about tablet
2. Go to developer settings
3. In the first section click Root access and change to Apps and ADB

Enjoy your rooted rom

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD

In this ROM don't work Home button and express settings in status bar. Maybe because I flash it without full wipe, only cache and dalvik cache. But perfomance is greate
