It is finally time for a complete re-write of the guide, so here goes. Hopefully this will make it easier to follow and use!
I take no credit for the work represented here, and no credit for the idea, and no credit for incredible amount of work that has gone into figuring out how to cook tasty ROMs for the TF700. This is just an attempt to provide a quick and easy starting point for users looking for ROMs and their details.
If you have any [ROM/KERNEL] specific question ask in the appropriate thread for that. Please do not post them in the thread for this listing as you are not as likely to get your question answered as quickly as you would in the appropriate thread.
- Rooting: This is an operation that you do to a device that gives you "Root" level access to your tablet or phone or whatever. Other terms for this may be "SuperUser", it means you have access to the entire device, including areas that the manufacturer or provider may not want you to have access to.
- Unlocking: Unlocking is the step past rooting, where you "unlock" your bootloader. This gives you full access to the bootloader, and is the second part required in order to be able to flash new ROMs. **MAY VOID MANUFACTURER WARRANTY
- OTA: Over the Air Updates. These are the ROM updates that come directly from ASUS (or whomever built your tablet). When you root and flash you almost always lose OTAs.
- Flash (or Flashing): This is where you replace the Operating System for the device with a new one. There are many reasons for flashing, Google has lots of discussions about the topic.
- Bootloader: Computers have a process when you turn them on, the first part is the Bootloader which contains just enough information to tell the device where the harddrive is, etc. Accessing the bootloader is required in order to replace the ROM, or in other words to Flash your device.
- Recovery: This is an important part of the Android system, it allows you to turn on the device and get ALMOST to the full ROM load. Recovery is where you go to load custom ROMs, perform full backups and many other tasks. There are several different recovery apps, two of the most popular are CWM or ClockworkMod and TWRP. Most of the ROMs you will see are supported by one or both of these.
Hopefully this little bit of information helps, of course the opinions and answers are mine alone so if you have any issues let me know!
