After some hours of learning the Asus blob system, I have finally got the latest OTA packaged properly.

Thanks to the Virtuous Team for their updater-script that I started with.

If you download this, please click "thanks" for the chances I took on bricking my device to make this for us.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any damage caused to your device due to flashing this.

That said, I am writing this post on my prime which is running this firmware and working well.



This ROM is completely stock 9.4.2.15 except for:
  • Rooted
  • Insecure Boot.img (Allows the system to be mounted writable)
  • ADB debugging enabled (Allows running logcat if needed)

Instructions
  • Make sure your Prime is unlocked and you have CWM installed (see this thread for help and a handy tool to do that)
  • Shut down the prime
  • Hold both the Power-button and the Volume-down button until the splash screen appears and some white text in the left top corner is visible
  • Release both buttons and press the Volume-up button
  • The device now boots into your CWM recovery
  • Make a backup of your current ROM
  • Inside CWM select "wipe data/factory reset" (Optional but highly recommended)
  • Then flash the rom zip as usual
  • Then flash the Accounts & Sync fix zip as usual

Download

9.4.2.15 Full Rom

Thanks simply for your effort. Still running the Virtuous ROM, but glad this has been made available.

I share the same situation and feelings. Thanks for working on this. Does your file manage to flash the latest kernel as well?

First of all, thank you for packaging this for the rest of us!

I am curious about one thing.

I realize that "wipe data" has become the catch-all cure for custom rom issues, but why is this a required step for what's essentially a stock rom when the locked bootloader version doesn't need to wipe data?
I'm not complaining, I'm just wondering why this is a required step (instead of an "if you have problems try wiping data" step)?
