Awesome, that's the news I wanted to hear.

Noticed that already. I have to say _that and sdbags and everyone who contributed to the efforts to improve TF700T's i/o and everything else, did do a fantastic job. Unfortunately the TF700T just got to the point where I couldn't use it for what I needed (heavy lifting of large PDF's and switching between apps a lot). The TF701 is a lot faster even without CROMi-X, but looking forward to the tweaks to come.

Up and running on CROMi-X 7.0.3 - anyone else notice a few hiccups?
Unlocked and up on CROMi-X 7.0.3 now. Fantastic work everyone involved.

I had some hiccups flashing the CWM recovery with fastboot, ended up booting to the recovery over fastboot to install CROMi, then later flashing recovery with fastboot worked fine. I think the problem was with rebooting after the flash. I was also working with the tablet in the dock at first. After a few problems I removed it and kept it that way during install. Anyone else seen this?

FWIW, the basic steps were:
* Updated Asus firmware to WW_epaduser_V11_4_1_17_updatelauncher (Android 4.4.2)
* Unlocked with Asus unlock tool
* Fastboot flashed CWM Recovery
* CWM Recovery install of CROMi-X 7.0.3

Also at first I was confused by the CROMi-X Aroma installer - it didn't respond to touch. I thought maybe the recovery was causing problems and so I wasted time trying to fix that. After experimenting with Aroma again I realised I could operate it using Vol+/- & Power. Is this normal?

I'm a TF700T CROMi/CROMBi user as well, and so did my Quadrant testing along the way. At this stage I'm not seeing much difference between Asus 4.4.2 and CROMi-X - is this to be expected? I'm using the Stock tweaked kernel and I have disabled journaling (didn't see the journaling make a difference).

I've recorded the Aroma installer options, as I like to keep a record of what I've flashed for if I re-flash (kernels, system vs data apps etc). If I can wrangle tables on here I could post them if anyone is interested.

There is no recovery with touch interface for this tablet. The recovery partition is too small for recovery + necessary drivers. We have to live with the button interface - unfortunately.
Don't get hung up on Quadrant. If it was about speed, I would not have unlocked this tablet at all. For me it's about control and customization options (can't live without forward delete for example)

Just got my tf701t, I love the tablet but the dock not so much. I have the wobble and disconnect form keyboard. I am going to try Joep's kit. I hopes it helps.

But one thing that concerns me, when it goes to sleep when docked, it never wakes up. I have to hold the power button down until it reboots. And when it comes back up it says it is not docked. Anyone else had this?

I have not rooted it yet, could that help with it waking up when docked? Stock is better than my tf700t with its touch screen going bad. I hope it is not a hardware problem with the keyboard. The dock version is DOCK-EC32T-0205, are there other versions that are better or worse?
