Talking [Tool] Nvflash unbricking released!

Hi,

As most of you probably already know by now, I have released a fully functional nvflash for Transformer yesterday
More information is available at http://androidroot.mobi/2011/06/13/n...s-transformer/

UPDATE 15-06-2011:Bumble-Bee (Apache14) is just as much to thank for this as me! Both of us (from AndroidRoot.Mobi) have worked hard on making this happen! Thanks to Roach for providing the nvflash-ready Prime 1.4 ROM!

UPDATE: The Prime 1.4 linked is European (WW) build! Roach will release 1.5 soon probably and there'll be both WW and US available. I'm planning to write a quick guide on how to root when running stock 3.1 already (it's pretty easy!)! E.g. to stay on full stock and *just* have root


Windows nvflash
Linux nvflash

Quick guide to unbricking:
  1. Connect cable to computer and turn device on while holding down Volume Up. Screen will stay off, but USB will come on.
  2. (Windows only) Find “APX” device in Device manager and update driver, then point it at usbpcdriver directory from the zip
  3. Run download.sh (linux) or download.bat (windows)
  4. ???
  5. Profit
DO NOT PRIVATE MSG, EMAIL, TRACK ME DOWN ON FACEBOOK OR ANYTHING ELSE.

Sony Xperia Z (Stock!)
ASUS Transformer Prime (CM10.1)
Notion Ink Adam LCD/3G (AOSP ICS)

NvFlash for B70+ Devices
NvFlash: TF201 | TF300 I TF700

WOW, It's "just like that"? Really that's all what you have to do to unbrick a device? I guess times when flashing roms was dangerous have passed

Great job

unbrick tool came before root tool. lol
but it's a very useful program for all of us.
thanks for this!

i have a question though, my Samsung Vibrant was HARDWARE LOCKED, which makes button combinations to enter recovery/download modes impossible.
Is there any possibility that my TF has a hardware lock too which will prevent me from accessing the USB when it gets bricked?

i have experience in rooting and/or jailbreaking but i havent rooted my TF yet, coz the only way to root right now is kind of "not layman friendly". and i hate the terms BLOBS. lol

thank you.

Either you didn't read the post or you might be dyslexic. If you unbrick your device you're pushing a custom ROM which means you automatically get root.

You don't need this your already rooted. This is a easy way to root and it can also revive bricks, custom flash different partitions and who knows what other functions can be done with nvflash.

Will this wipe your data partition if using this to get a rooted custom rom on?
