Cool [Q] Slate 7 Extreme root,flash question

Hi, I am a happy owner of the HP Slate 7 Extreme which is basically the same device as you guys are using.I am still on the 4.2 Jelly bean since HP are not pushing over the air updates with our devices.I want to use the script from the development forum "[Script] [Utility] Nvidia Tegra Note 7 Kitkat Unlock BL, Restore, Recovery, & Root", I want to know if anyone has tried to use it with the Slate Extreme or if it simply should work on the Jelly Bean aswell. Thanks guys.

i have not test that yet but i believe it should work because i have tested the 4.4.2 and 4.2.2 evga ROM from here using the cwm install from sdcard method..

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2627671

The only thing that puzzles me now is i am unable to perform a system recovery from HP update.zip using cwm.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...t=6608632#N147

So right now i am stuck with 4.2.2 evga ROM all is good and functional.

I have read some post that by updating OTA fix issue in 4.4 but i have no idea on how to get the OTA update.

p/s: This is my first tablet and root attempt...

edit:

i found out that rootjunky has already released the 4.4.2 with 2.3 OTA i will give it a try and feedback later

First, nope, you'll still get freezing. I've tried all the ROMs.

Second, If you want to go back to HP's recovery, do the following:
  1. Create a copy of update.zip and navigate to META-INF\com\google\android and open up updater-script
  2. Delete the first three lines.
  3. Transfer your new update.zip to your device and flash. Allow it to re-write the recovery partition.
  4. NOTE THAT YOUR DEVICE WILL NOT ADVANCE PAST THE BOOT ANIMATION. THIS IS NORMAL.
  5. Copy the original update.zip to a SD card and insert it into the device.
  6. Now go to the HP recovery partition that now exists on your device and follow HP's restore instructions.
  7. You're done, the stock 4.2.2 that came with your device is now installed.

Had to figure this out the hard way after I lost my original backup.

To the original poster, you can get it to work, but you need to make modifications to the script's fastboot commands (they will require "fastboot -i 0x03F0" before they will do anything) and you will need to setup your machine for ADB with the Slate 7 Extreme. It won't work out of the box, you can find support for that here: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Android...s/td-p/2574571

There was an individual who has received the 4.4.2 update from HP on his Slate Extreme over at the HP forums. I believe he stated he received 20 units donated directly from HP and was wondering why only 1 of them received the update. I believe the reason stated is that he most likely received a non-retail unit by accident. Not sure if he ever dumped the ROM or even knows how. I don't know either otherwise I'd try to contact him to get him to do so.

I did flash the modified update.zip but CWM doesn't give me the option to re-write the recovery partition. I go straight to "Install from sdcard complete". How is that re-write done?

*Update* All done - Had to select NO to questions on reboot (Replace recovery and root). Thanks so much - back to stock 4.2.2
