Default [DEV][TOOL][BRICKPROOF]TF300 NVFlash release!

After a hard day of extra testing, we're proud to announce Nvflash for TF300.

This release allows unlocked devices to create a set of device-specific files that lets you access nvflash.

Once the procedure is done, you will always be able to recover any software brick (even bootloader!) as long as you keep your files safe!

NOTE:
  • THIS REQUIRES A NON-BRICKED AND UNLOCKED DEVICE. IT WON'T WORK ON ALREADY BRICKED DEVICES
  • THIS ONLY WORKS IF YOU HAVE A PRE-JB BOOTLOADER


More details at http://androidroot.mobi/?p=480

Important note: License: Due to the nature of wheelie and the importance of people always using the latest version, Wheelie is NOT redistributable! You are allowed to download it and use it, but you are not allowed to redistribute it in any way - this means no GUI's including it, no reposting zips/tar.gz's and similar! At a later date, we will be releasing our source code and relicense it as GPL.

Enjoy

Nice, I'll have to give this try. Its good to have a safety net.
So once I have generated the files and have NvFlash working, would I be able to then flash the new JB from Asus and then use the NvFlash files to go back to ICS bootloader?

PS: This thread should be pinned.
Nexus 5 on T-mobile, VZW can suck it

Best error message I ever got was from the market "cannot find bing, installation aborted"

Yes! Once you have these files, you can move back and forth between any rom/bootloader you desire. ASUS can do nothing to prevent it once you have the files for your device!
It also essentially makes your device brick proof (assuming you carefully follow our guide and do the backups!), so development gets a lot more safe

Thumbs up Yyyeeeeeahhhhh

THIS IS AWESOME!! Thank you guys so much for all your hard work.
I followed the process as explained in the guide and everything went perfectly.

For anyone there still on the fence... give it a go! The whole process takes 2-3 minutes. Just make sure you don't skip any step of the process and keep your generated files in 3 or 4 different locations (thumbdrive, cloud, external HD and the TF300 in my case).

Kudos to all of you again!

You mean OTA JB from ASUS?
