Hi,

Anyone else having the following issues with ICS (stock, rooted):
  • Locked screen, using power button doesn't work
  • Reboot and stuck on Asus Logo?

both resulting in pressing on and power up to restart..


seems like this update isn't fully tested. I haven't done a full wipe, I simply updated through OTA... should I try this? If I do, can I do an ADB backup and restore?

Thanks folks

its most likely because you were rooted and did modifications that caused the OTA to fail and mess something up.

The OTA itself was tested by ASUS, its you who did mods to the tablet that made the OTA fail for you. You'll most likely have to wipe and start all over. Or just DL a custom ROM.

I wiped, totally cleaned the system, installed WW latest full blob then the update, and it occured. Just to note, my only mod was root, nothing else.

All I did was root... that shouldn't affect the OTA, especially as the OTA unrooted my device anyway!

I'll wipe now and let you know the outcomes.

Why did you do this; installed WW latest full blob then the update

Full wipe and then install the Full ICS WW. Thats all that should be needed.

OPTION B:

FULL version

In recovery do a full system reset. Delete that mofo.
Then install the Full US ICS zip.

I wouldn't. Atleast not right away. You have an issue. You don't no whats causing it. First Wipe and then reinstall. If after that you can't make the problem appear again, I would do a nandroid, and then attempt the restore of your apps. If no issues; Profit. But if you find issues after you can then restore to the nand and go through your apps one at a time to figure it out.
