AndroidRoot.Mobi is proud to present Nvflash for B70+ devices!
After far too much cola and far too many long nights hacking away and bit twiddling, we finally have the solution.

Wheelie is an nvflash pre-loader that boots the tablet into an nvflash ready mode that lets you use regular nvflash commands (with -r prepended!). In the long run it will be an open-source nvflash reimplementation similar to heimdal for samsung devices.

Details and download are available here: http://androidroot.mobi/?p=331
UPDATE 31-05-2012: Windows beta version now available at http://androidroot.mobi/?p=367

DISCLAIMER: All use of this program is your own responsibility! We will in no way be held accountable if you somehow manage to perm-brick, set on fire or blow up yourself, your tablet or your house!

This work has been brought to you by the following people:
Bumble-Bee, IEF, kmdm, lilstevie & RaYmAn

NOTE: any donations should go to http://androidroot.mobi/donations/, not our individual accounts!

udev rules for nvflash on B70+, drop them as root in something like /etc/udev/rules.d/52-nvflash.rules
Code:
# nvflash protocol on tf101 (ASUS Transformer Pad)
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0955", ATTR{idProduct}=="7820", MODE="0600", OWNER="your-username-here"
Btw, tremendous work guys, I just dumped my TF101's partition table (B8O+) as a "smoke test" before trying anything more dangerous

Thanks - there's only so much you can fit in a blogpost at once hehe
Adding this to udev is definitely recommended over running our tool as root!

So before I go trying it, does this mean I can finally install a real Ubuntu dual boot like on sbk1 devices?

You can do anything with nvflash, just like on sbkv1.
Wheelie is "pre-flight", so it just sets everything up in order to be able to use normal nvflash in resume mode (-r). other than that, the rest is identical (normal nvflash usage).

Alright, I'll give it a try later then. Now to get a dang dock.

Edit: So how would this work?

Also I just realised I have a B70, is there a way to double check if I am a lucky sbk1 on windows 7?
