Only works on unlocked device?
Ok I'll try like this
These are the steps I would do: (I pray someone to look over these steps and correct me if I'm wrong
1.) Go to asus site and download unlock_v8 and run it so to unlock my tablet.
2.) I go to androidroot.mobi and download flatline_tf300.img and nvflash-tools-win32.zip (win32? Hope that does not stand for 32-bit and hope it will work on 64-bit)
3.) I reboot my device into Fastboot (don't know exactly what that means "Please note that for transformer tablets the fastboot command might require the option "-i 0x0b05"" - at this stage the device is already connected to the pc and just in case it's not in fastboot I should run this command?)
4.) I use cmd.exe to type in these commands. In which directory? In the directory where I unzip the files from nvflash-tools-win32.zip? The guide is not too specific on that.
5.) I type in "$ fastboot flash recovery flatline_device.img" (I know for device I use tf300) which will flash the recovery.
6.) I reboot my device (let android boot?) and reboot again into recovery. (power + vol down?)
7.) I select "Advanced - Wheelie" and Step 1: Flash AndroidRoot BL and find myself with a custom bootloader.
8.) It says the device will power off. Automatically? However, I boot into android and after that reboot again into recovery mode.
9.) I choose Step 2 which will generate wheelie blobs
10.) I follow the on screen prompt to retrieve my blobs (anyone has a screenshot of that? Or is it self-expalantory?)
All this time the device is connected to pc via usb?
11.) Now I reboot my tablet into APX mode - after Step 10: am I still in recovery or booted to Android?
12.) If my tablet is recognized I type "$ wheelie --blob blob.bin" into cmd
13.) Then I will type in the commands to obtain the backups
Still got a few questions though. The device is connected to PC throughout this whole procedure, right? Where to start cmd (do I have to put the files from nvflash-tools into a specific folder from where I start cmd.exe?)
And after this procedure is done do I need to flash anything else? Or will I be then equipped with a working recovery that allows me to flash custom roms?
Thanks in advance for anyone who's taking time to answer my maybe uninformed questions but I'm kind of having troubles following the guide
