Hello

I am slowly trying to learn how to root my TF300T in preparation for installing my first mod but I have a problem. I am using Android 4.2.1 and as far as I can tell I have USB debugging ticked on my settings.

I am following the Cyanogen tutorial and I have installed Android SDK to my PC and put it into the root of the C\ folder. It is revision 22.3, if that helps anybody.

I do not know if I have the correct settings within the Android SDK Manager, however the Google USB Driver says that it is installed.

However when I connect my TF300T to my PC, with a 'male to male' USB cable nothing happens.

If I connect any USB device to the TF300T, then it is recognise and I can use it.

If I connect my Nexus 4 phone to my PC then the PC recognises the device in both the Device Manager and a Auto-Play pop-up menu comes on the screen. I can then freely move files to and feom the phone to my PC with no issues.

Does anybody know where I am going wrong with either my Tablet or PC which is stopping them communicating with each other?

Not sure, where you are connecting that cable.
You need to use the USB/charger cable that came with your device and connect that to your PC.

Fantastic

Thank you so much for helping me with which cable I should use. I thought I was going mad.


Using the USB/Charger cable worked.

When I connected my Tablet to the computer, my PC went looking for the drivers. The PC found most of them however I got the following error message

ASUS Android composite ADB Interface No Driver found.

Any ideas how I find and install this ADB Interface?

Sorry, I am a Linux user, never had any USB driver issues myself. If you search the forums for "USB naked drivers", you should find some help and instructions.

Thank you.

I will give it a go later today. Hopefully it will help in my quest which I am failing with spectacularly. I can't even get root, let alone flash something.

Cheers

Thank you for the link.

Sadly I do not have a clue how to use this bit of software. I have installed it. My Tablet is connected to my PC.

But I do not have a clue what to do from there.

Thanks for trying to help me.

Cheers
