Hey XDA Folks, we have a YouTube channel where we normally film ROM overviews for the LG G2x as well as the HTC Sensation. Just today, I bought the TF300 as my "go to" Android Device and so far I am very pleased!

It is a powerful device, without having any signal issues and it has a pretty decent price tag. Down below, we will be posting vids as Development options become available. So far, we only have the ROOT method, which is simply to run an APK and a Tweaked Build.prop which, is literally renaming the old one, and copying the edited version to /system.

Anyway, take a look at our vids and more videos will be coming in the near future


How to Flash Jelly Bean (seanzscreams Hydro ROM) on the ASUS TF300

Thanks for the videos!

I'm having a problem though with the custom build.prop process. My TF300 is rooted - or at least SparkyRoot and Voodoo OTA RootKeeper both say that it is - and I was able to restore root with Voodoo after updating to .29 last night. But I don't get the permissions dialog when opening ES File Explorer, and I get "operation failed" when I try to rename build.prop to build.prop.bak.

Any ideas?


EDIT: Problem solved. I used Root Browser instead, noproblem reanaming the file. Not sure what the problem was with ES File Explorer.

Hmm, haven't come across that error before. How about reinstalling ES File Explorer and as soon as you open it it should prompt you for ROOT Access. If it doesn't then go to the Settings and look for the "Enable Root explorer" option. Now it that fails, download another File Manager that has Root browsing capabilities. Hope this helps

I didn't try reinstalling ES FE, but I did reboot a couple of times, and also tried the enable root option in settings. None of that helped, so I gave up trying with ES FE and installed Root Browser Lite, which worked flawlessly.
