This is a compilation of methods used to modify, install and recover your system on the TF101. This is a one click root, ubuntu installer and dianostic/custom set of tools. I did not make any of the ROM's, NVFlash, ADB, aBootimg or any other tools inside of this installer. I just make the user friendly interface and easy to use process for modify your TF101.



*****THIS METHOD IS DESTRUCTIVE TO DATA***** THIS WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR DATA AND INSTALL A FRESH COPY *****
YOUR ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY OCCUR WHILE USING THIS PROGRAM. MYSELF NOR ANY OTHER PERSON OTHER THAN YOURSELF IS LIABLE FOR ANYTHING THAT MAY OCCUR DURING ITS USE.

What you need:
Nvflashable ROM
Ubuntu Filesystem
SBK1 system

Instructions:
1.) Extract archive to a location of your choice.
2.) Put Ubuntu.img and ROM into main folder ( Ubuntu, system, boot and recovery IMG ).
3.) Run the tool.
4.) Do whatever you like :P

*note: Ubuntu may have to resize the partition. Let it do its thing it may take a couple of minute to do it.
To use Ubuntu you have to press power and volume down when booting. And then press volume up.

Hi there,

Sounds like a great tool and im very interested. Can you dual boot with ubuntu and the current rom?
Does it replace CWM ?

Is thereanything to prepare, before installing etc?

I was also wondering if this just completely wipes the tablet and puts only ubuntu or whether it can dual boot. Dual boot would be awesome.

The system.img file is a nvflashable rom like prime. The ubuntu img is from lilstevie's thread "Ubuntu on the Transformer". As for the Dual-boot with android as default it will be on my next release. Its a long story on this release. I had alot of options for this release, but it would take alot longer to get it all finished. So i released this mini-version just to let people play around with a little bit. My next version with have a bunch of options along with a GUI interface for ADB and NVFlash.
