Lightbulb [TOOL]PERI-0.42 One click root+recovery/fix-bootloops+soft-bricks ALL Devices+.27! :D

TF101, SL101 and TF101G on ICS firmwares anything else is untested.
Also should work on TF201 and TF300T on ICS ONLY!
For Windows, tested on windows 7 x64 bit, xp 32 bit and windows 7 32 bit.
Your data will be retained, unless you wipe in TWRP or something :P

UPDATE:
Added V0.41 which includes TWRP
Also V0.42 which is even newer TWRP!

apk not working sofar :[

If you have a TF201, or TF300T, this will work still, but you need to replace the included file 'recoveryblob' with a recoveryblob from a recovery from your device (download the .zip file for the recovery you want, and extract the 'blob' or 'recoveryblob' file from it and place in PERI folder, naming it recoveryblob and overwriting the otherone!)


Initiate project-PERI:
Since there's no one-clicks that I've stumbled across, and many people are asking if this-that etc.. works with .24, I've made an easy one-click (ish) that guides you through it and runs the necessary commands.
Thanks to:
Team Rouge (I used their touch recovery version)
Wolf (For his method to flash recovery!)
Roach (Bootloop fix)
Members here for testing help :] (I'm bad about typos...)

V0.42- TwrpyIndri Cutting Edge - 14.15MB
Version 0.42 -- Recommended (TWRP 2.5.0.0)

Just unzip it to a folder anywhere and run the .bat file!
Works with or without MicroSD, just let the device totally reboot (E.G. don't let any commands run at the splash screen or in recovery.)
Fixed reboot confusion in V0.2 -Didn't fix in v0.2, Did fix in v0.3 though

If I did anything wrong, or offended any devs, killed someone's cat, or something else, Please let me know!

Post here with any questions or problems, I tested this and everything worked fine, but still consider it as final? release candidate 4.
Did it work?
This should do everything needed, and all is included in zip!

If you want to skip any steps that you've already done if you mess up, just unplug the USB and pretend that it isn't throwing 'device not found' errors, then get back to where you were.
If superuser isn't installing but you have recovery, try 'fix permissions' in recovery. -- Fixed (hopefully) in V0.2

Read the readme and run as administrator! Video-tut is here!
**Also attached to thread.**

PERI - Changelog --
Code:
[*]V0.42
-- Added cutting edge TWRP 2.5.0.0
-- Thanks jazzruby
V0.41
-- Added TWRP 2.3.2.3 recovery, finally c:
-- Fixed a couple typos.
-- Fed a llama candy.
V0.4
-- Added option for ROOT users to just flash recovery.
-- Added unbrick/bootloop fix option for those that can access adb (hopefully works)
-- Bug fix, minor layout change.
-- Second-Last windows release! :D 'Last is auto APX unbrick..' Then the app.
-- Indri
V0.3
-- Fixed reboot typo that causes failed reboot
-- Other layout issues and typos
-- Added a Readme, read it
-- Got angry at video recorder for not working.
-- Raptor
V0.2
-- Fixed a few layout issues and typos.
-- Added driver autoinstaller for Windows 7. (XP Can still use manual)
-- Updated the SU zip I was using, hopefully fixes fake error messages.
-- Fixed reboot confusion (Reordered command layout)
-- Elephant

V0.1
-- Initial Release
-- Helps you root and install recovery.
-- Simple mostly automated batch script.
-- Driver install guide too!
-- Reboot bug included!
-- Platypus
Tl;DR: This installs recovery and walks you through rooting your device from total stock. It includes everything you need, download is above.
It also functions as a unbrick for soft-bricks where you can access ADB or if your recovery is bootlooping and won't flash anything.

If you already have root: This tool will work on an already rooted tf to install Rouge's latest Touch Recovery (Reads from internal and external)
--if you're in a bootloop and can boot into android via-cold-boot, this will fix it! --
So if anyone who's already rooted doesn't mind doing further testing on it that would be great, the more reports the better!

If the superuser.zip isn't giving you root (For whatever reason O.o) try flashing the attached SuperSU I packed.

Video:
How to use PERI to root your Transformer!
**coming soon**

Unbricking/fix recovery bootloop:
I added an unbricking help/feature in V0.4 that'll help with bootloops or softbricks. PERI will help you through it.

**If you want to use the 'I'm already rooted just flash recovery' feature, you need to have given adb su access already!!!**

I bricked my tab on purpose using ROM manager to test the unbricker. Seems to work fine, let me know.
It might have bugs though and not work, in which case 'Don't taze me bro!'
I pretty much copy-pasted roach's bootloop fix.

If I helped, click thanks!

The .bat is open-source, download the .zip and take a look at the .bat with notepad++, if you like.

If you're having driver issues, give USBdeview a looksee.

What does it do, exactly ? You are downgrading and then rooting with it ?

No, it doesn't need to downgrade, it just runs wolf's exploit and directly flashes recovery on your tf. All user data is safe.
If it was a downgrade, the filesize would be alot bigger as I'd have to include a stock ROM.

I am sure that I am using the same transformer as yours as mine was imported from USA.

Hi all,
I think ıt should be a more detailed guide.
"Just unzip it to a folder anywhere and run the .bat file!" it seems very easy.
I do not want to offend the developers and Thing O Doom

tigerfire25;
you can try that move the blob file internal memory of asus and try again. I an now at work so I can not try the method. I am just suggesting you, do not hope too much

I tried to make with simplicity in mind, so that really is all you need to do:
1. Make folder and extract contents of .zip into it.
2. Run the .bat file, which then holds your hand through the whole process.
3. ???
4. Profit.

EDIT5: Tigerfire, please try with a MicroSD inserted. This may fix it, thanks for reporting back.

Default Done

Done on my TF101G B90 with .24, it worked but:
1) when it tries to reboot the device (twice during the procedure) it doesn't work, i had to do it manually
2) the installation of the Superuser gives an error like it didn't succed but after reboot it was installed

Anyway thanks

Yeah, the reboot to recovery scripts don't work, it's actually just a simple 'adb reboot' command. I couldn't get 'adb reboot recovery' to work, sorry about that, that's why I detailed the manual instructions in there.
The superuser zip might be borked, but 'fix permissions' in CWM usually removes the error, but if it installed I figure whats it matter? XD

Hi Thing O Doom,
Nice work and thanks

You might be able to automate the process a little better by running the PnP Utility ('PnPutil.exe').
e.g.
Code:
pnputil -i -a %~dp0\adb-drivers\android_winusb.inf
-a - add package
-i - install package

You can skip the install command (-i) if you like (drivers will now be in the 'driver store' (-a) and installed when device is connected).
PnPUtil - TechNet

You might want to try/use the su pkg from HERE
http://goo.im/superuser/Superuser-3....ghi-signed.zip

It uses a newer 'update-binary' and cleaner/updated 'updater-script' & pkg.
