YOU MUST BE ON THE ASUS STOCK JB 4.2.1 BOOTLOADER VERSION 10.6.1.14.10 AND TWRP 2.6.3.2+ OR CWM 6.0.4.6+ BEFORE FLASHING THIS ROM. SEE UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU ARE UNSURE



You must do a full wipe in recovery if coming from another ROM base. Do not do a full wipe from the bootloader. Don't forget to do a Nandroid Backup first and give the ROM 10 mins to stabilise!

Download the recovery file from above, put it into the same folder where you have adb and fastboot files. Please rename it to twrp.blob or cwm.img and follow the instructions below:

Quote:

CWM:

Connect your transformer to your PC, reboot to the bootloader to enable fastboot by either holding down [power] and [volume down] or opening a command prompt in your adb.exe folder in windows:

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
To flash the recovery:

Code:
fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery cwm.img
or

Code:
fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery twrp.blob
A blue bar will go accross the screen on the tab and the command prompt will indicate it was successful in about 10 seconds

Then reboot the tablet either back to the bootloader or to android to complete

Code:
fastboot -i 0x0B05 reboot-bootloader
fastboot -i 0x0B05 reboot
You can now access the recovery by pushing [volume up] on the RCK icon in the bootloader screen

ROM2SD/DATA2SD USERS PLEASE READ!
ROM2SD only works if you have CROMBi-kk, CROMi-X or miniC flashed on internal with a THATv10+ kernel. Just choose ROM2SD in the installer of CROMBi-kk to flash it to ROM2SD and the installer will do the rest.

- Install CROMBi-kk and choose ROM2SD or DATA2SD install

The ROM2SD1.zip below is only needed if you need to switch your recovery to between normal and rom2sd mode. For Example you want to backup or restore a rom2sd installation. Flash once to go rom2sd and flash again to go back to normal. A reboot always puts you back to normal. Thanks to _that!

================================================== ================================================

Using GParted to setup a micro SD for ROM2SD or DATA2SD support

First and foremost - DO NOT USE MINI TOOL!

Formatting a micro sd card for ROM2SD
Note for DATA2SD just do one partition in stead of 2

We will be using a GParted Live boot USB and a FAST good quality micro sd like a Sandisk or Samsung Class 10 - SDHC/SDXC UHS-1 card with read speed of at least 20MB/S. If you have a cheap chinese eBay card don't bother - they are not good enough.

You will also need a USB Stick with at least 1GB size. Note this process formats the USB disk so don't keep any important files on it. It will also wipe your micro sd so make sure you are prepared.

1. Go to the link below and download the GParted Live CD/USB/HD/PXE Bootable Image and save it somewhere you remember
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/download.php
2. Download Linux Live USB Creator and install it
http://www.linuxliveusb.com/

3. Fire up LiLi USB Creator:
a. Choose your USB key - I,e, the drive letter for your USB (not sd card)
b. Choose your GParted iso image for the source
c. Choose the check box to Format Key in FAT32 and hide files
d. Click the lightning bolt to create

4. Now you have a bootable disk you need to boot from it. You may need to alter you BIOS Settings on your PC to boot from a USB Stick but mine did it without messing.
5. Insert your micro SD card into an SD Card adapter and insert into PC
6. Boot into GParted

7. Choose Gparted Live <Enter>
8. Don’t touch keymap <Enter>
9. Languge <Enter>
10. Start Gparted Automatically
11. Change device to your micro sd )it will default to you hard disk - hda– mine is /dev/sdc



12. Delete all existing partitions

For a 64GB card: (resize as needed but /system doesn't need to be bigger than 1GB)
13. Create new, always select primary: do this 3 times.
14. FAT 32 : Size 16GB – this will be /dev/sdc1 in gparted and will be your sdcard for storage in Android
15. EXT4 : Size 42GB – this will be /dev/sdc2 in gparted and will be your /data partition in Android
16. EXT4 : Size 1GB – this will be /dev/sdc3 in gparted and will be your /system partition in Android (not needed for data2sd)



Apply, wait until it finishes and then reboot. Remember to remove the usb stick

*Images stolen from elsewhere as I couldn’t get it to save mine

Now you are ready to install ROM2SD. Note if you want to use DATA2SD then only do 2 partitions 1x FAT32 and 1x larger EXT4

Then reinstall CROMBi-kk but this time choose the ROM2SD / DATA2SD option

BIG RED WARNING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE MISSING ROOT!

You are not. The way CM11 works is root is not enabled by default after a clean install. Here is how you enable it.

1. Enable developer options by clicking the build number 7 times in settings - about tablet
2. Go to developer settings
3. In the first section click Root access and change to Apps and ADB

Enjoy your rooted rom

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD

In case anyone wants to try it ... in the download section of this ROM you'll also find an unofficial pre-release of TWRP 2.7 compiled by me (2.6.3-that3) that supports both JB and KK ZIPs. I can't say anything about its quality, but the devs of this ROM have tested it. The GUI is much more fluid than in earlier versions.

Note: lj said that formatting data with this recovery takes a very long time (in the order of 1-2 hours) - be patient. It is not only formatting your data, it also trims unused blocks afterwards, and you know our internal storage is not the fastest... but the advantage is that in normal use it will then find enough empty flash blocks so writes will be faster.

Ok, installed it affer Wipe Data/Factory reset. Upon booting keep getting this message "Unfortunately, the process android.process.media has stopped". I dont have catlog installed yet, but what info do you need, I am assuming a logcat.
