Thanks all of you for your input.

1 - There is NO AsusUnlockLangID.exe for Asus P735 - do not know why.

The one from P535 or P525 is useless on this phone.

2 - Great point about "same-upgrade-tool-language-possibility" yet the official ROM comes in an .exe file that i do not know how to unpack/hack in order to insert the correct ROM or vice-versa.
Could you provide me with some insight for that?

3 - Besides that, do you think a tweaked P750 ROM could work on this phone, or a hybrid P535/735? Wouldn't that be the best/easiest solution, which would in the same way finally create a more advanced ROM for this quite neglected device? The older P535 has even 6.5 ROMs whereas P735 is limited to the basic 6.0. (Does that have any advantage by the way?)

4 - I am open to any way of flashing, given it provides the right result so all your advices are welcome.

Yes, the author is very present

Ok, thank you, i've just read your last answer. I'm gonna try the tool you're talking about and inform you of the result.

PS: No, i'm not from Pakistan though i love the country, are you from there?

PS2: Any way to port the 6.1 version to P735, to kill two flies in one shot ?

p750 is different pair of shoes, nothing would be useful in this case. do not try any roms made for different devices(trivia, i know).
-----

i dare to say, that any rom is possible for 735... while searching info, people made every possible build, including 6.5's...ALL chinese :E

rom from exe is exctractable, then fully dumpable, packages are clean and good...

btw, that ABI file is just a renamed rom.bin...
while Activesync method of EXE flashing is wrong, only way of avoiding problem is using SD card flash method then by using that pseudo "abi" file.

dpad to right + softreset should start flash procedure. if not, it may be some key on the right side of the device + soft reset(hard to understand translated chinese...).

but before you decide to try...
could you, AsusP, make photo of bootloader mode?
and please, post link of exe file you were trying to flash, i need it(i mean this english one). for some reason dumped rom from "WWE" version seem to be...hebrew...
i really would extract real english rom.

now, only problem is, that besides of one case i did not see any clear information, if sd flash with languague change is safe.
one person wrote it is.

yup, this one seems to be exactly like one i tried to extract, indeed, it's wwe.
damn, it's OLD
it seems, that cooking custom roms is possible for this device without special problems. new 6.1 or 6.5 should work MUCH faster, than your actual one, or that wwe from asus...

try to make photo of bootloader, and tell me, which version of 735 do you have, 64 mb or 128 mb of ram?

ahh and one last question: do you have original updater with german version of rom, that you CAN flash(i mean, that you have now, in your device)? it may be neccesary, if you ever dare to make further experiments.

"try to make photo of bootloader, and tell me, which version of 735 do you have, 64 mb or 128 mb of ram?"

It is 64MB RAM, same as all Asus P7XX devices i guess, if not upgraded (mine is not).

Sorry, but how do you make photos of the bootloader? Do you mean the update tool?

"ahh and one last question: do you have original updater with german version of rom, that you CAN flash(i mean, that you have now, in your device)? it may be neccesary, if you ever dare to make further experiments."

I have it in the device yes but i don't have the program/CD if that's what you mean. It could be downloaded though from Asus i think...

Bootloader mode flash(with unpacked from exe rom image on sd card) seem to be Only way to update your device.
I am trying to determine risk linked to this method, so i need photo of LOOK of bootloader mode.
You may enter BL mode by pressing dpad RIGHT and making soft reset, if i am right.
then something should appear, and this is what i want you to photograph it for me(with..camera).
of COURSE, do not put abi image on sd card YET, otherwise you start to update, and we do NOT know yet, if you brick your machine or not.
so, at this moment i just ant to see hot it look like, without flashing, if its typical 525/750 bootloader, not some weird thing, i'd assume, that abi file flashing should not brick machine.

sorry or enigmatic words, cannot explain this easier way.

..so not all 735's have 64 mb ram, i'd say, ok?
look, i do not know nothing about your knowledge level, many users of 750's with 128 mb ram are using 64 mb version of roms(typical noob would have no idea to try any different), this is why i mentioned it...

btw, besides using GanFan-ZincROMXtractor's easier way of obtaining rom file from exe is just using restorator, reshack, or similar tool to extract rom at res 152.
result is identical as using zincromextractor, though name of file must be set manually - it is Mars_G4.abi (though, it is not..real abi file, but it doesn't matter).

WWE World Wide English - got it.

Pupakota thanks a lot for your efforts, i've had a busy schedule these days, i'll paste you all the info soon.

My knowledge level is basic yet i have some experience of programing from before and i'm very keen to learn about this, more than just using the system.
