Hey ME301 users.

I have decided to move this information over to a Q&A thread so we don't bung up CROMBI thread with this. It seems that there is something that is not letting ME301 users install and run the latest 4.4.3 version of CROMBI and of course we are hoping to do something about that.

I will post a few test zips to try and see if they can allow you to boot on to CROMBI.

As the users who are testing this out there are a few things that I ask of you when troubleshooting:


  1. When installing CROMBI, please make sure you do a factory reset wipe in TWRP and also wipe cache and dalvik cache
  2. Please do not choose any options in the installer for running data2sd, rom2sd or f2fs. If you have f2fs on your internal /data I could possibly make up a test for that. I am going to stick to EXT4 for now.
  3. Make sure you choose ME301 in the installer, and choose do not install a kernel
  4. Flash one of the test zips provided below once you finish installing CROMBI and before you reboot your tablet
  5. If it fails to boot, please indicate whether it boot loops at black Asus logo screen or at the bootanimation
  6. If it is bootlooping at the bootanimation, then please send me a logcat as well as a last_kmsg and attach it to this thread. If you do not know how to do this there are many guides on XDA that can explain it much better than I can.

That should be about all for now. Let the testing begin!


EDIT/UPDATE - Tests 1-4 = FAIL, how about test 5?

Test 1 & 2 both bootloop at the bootanimation Crombi-KK logo. I cannot pull logcat or last_Kmsg as my command prompt shows device as "offline" and after entering the commands it just reads "waiting for device".

If you reboot into TWRP, you can go into 'advanced' and then 'file manager' and then go into the 'proc' folder and in there you can find the last_kmsg. If you select it, it will allow you to copy it to your sd card.

@hardslog thank you for your continued attempts to get this moving.

I have tried 3 and 4 with same results. Boots to Crombi bootanimation and remains there.

Attached is zip of Last_Kmsg for zips 3 and 4.

Is it possible that instead of zipping the files, to rename them to a .txt and upload them uncompressed? It seems that when they get zipped the encoding gets messed up.

I found the same thing myself, was hard to view.

I have taken the files, copied to SD then simply added .txt to the end of the file.

Attached are the results.

Let me know what i can do to assist further.

OK,

Here is what I need....

Someone with a me301t that boots, turn on adb either in rom or boot into recovery and run this command

Code:
adb pull proc/config.gz
Upload the file somewhere so I can download it......

Thx Josh & Team CROMBI
