The AndroidRoot.Mobi Team is proud to present Flatline: Nvflash for TF700 Jellybean!

This release allows generating nvflash blobs for your specific device, making your device unbrickable as long as you have a copy of the blobs.
As a brand new feature, it will also enable wifi and upload a copy of the blob to androidroot's server. Later, a solution will be released to retrieve the blobs from the server if you ever loose them.

For the love of God somebody please confirm this is true. I'm pinching myself trying to make sure this isn't a dream.

Guide says you need to use their modified 10.6.1.14.4 bootloader. I'm just waiting for 1 person I "know" to try this and then I will. I may do it tomorrow anyway...

OK thanks, I didn't notice that little tidbit of information. I'm waiting for someone to confirm this is working. Then I will install.

Ok guys CONFIRMED WORKING! make sure you follow the instructions like your performing heart surgery and you should be fine. (they have made it a lot easier then the ICS method!) and Make 6+ copies of the recommend backups

NOTE: I done it from CROMI-X 5.0.3 which i believe uses 10.6.1.14.10 bootloader. But it should work on any JB bootloader(But dont hold me too it ).

When it finished generating my blobs I tried doing adb pull /tmp/AndroidRoot i get "error: device not found"

Well you most likely dont have an adb driver installed the tf700 universel naked driver contains adb/ fastboot and apx drivers but you have to install them individually. check device manager and manually update the apx driver if its got the yellow triangle. You will have to do the same when you boot into apx mode.

At that point you can probably reboot into android (again im not responsible for any mishaps ) and copy the files over via mtp as you need the blob.bin file stored in /data/media/AndroidRoot to bootstrap nvflash.
