ROOTING BUILD 6.3.6

Thanks to @MEHRDAD595 For Tutorial and @fussel323 for root file
Explained Tutorial can be found Here

Flashing Back From 6.3.6 KitKat

 
I have seen people who want to know how to roll back to 5.2.5 because they are facing some issues in current build. ASUS might release a much stable build but for now you may have to roll back in order to resolve these issues. So follow this tutorial in order to roll back to 5.2.5
For this you will need
1. 5.2.2 Stock Raw Image which can be found here
2. Partial Update from 5.2.2 to 5.2.5 which can be found here

So lets start
1. Download and copy ME372CG_all_WW_user_V5.2.2.raw file to your external SD card
2. Turn Off your FonePad 7 and start Droid Boot (press and hold Volume up button and Power Button)
3. Select SD Download
4. Now your FonePad 7 will reboot and start flashing Build 5.2.2
5. After that when you are done refer to @MEHRDAD595 Rooting Thread here
6. After Rooting Download Partial Update file and rename it to dlpkgfile (make sure there is no extension)
7. Using Root Browser copy this file to /cache and make a new file in /cache/recovery named "command" (no quotes) edit it using text editor and enter following
Code:
--update_package=/cache/dlpkgfile
8. After that connect your FonePad 7 to your computer in USB Debugging Mode.
9. Using open.cmd (yes the one you used while rooting) enter following command
Code:
adb reboot recovery
10. Now your FonePad 7 will reboot and start updating. Once this is complete you will get Build 5.2.5.

Enjoy


*Note: There is no other way to roll back without root (There is might be a way but I need tester)

Official Asus Firmware updating guide can be found here

Install Applications to External Storage
 
To do this simply follow these steps
1. Go to Settings
2. Asus Customized Settings
3. App Installation Settings
4. Preferable External Storage, Now select whether you want to install apps to "internal storage" or "external" or leave it to "auto"

Using Partial Updates (If you are stuck at 3.2.4)

>>From 3.2.4 to 5.1.6
 
1. Root your 3.2.4
2. Download V3.2.4_To_V5.1.6_partial_update.zip and rename it to dlpkgfile (make sure there is no file extension)
3. Using root explorer (It can be found on Google Play) move dlpkgfile to root /cache
4. Make a new file in /cache/recovery and name it command
5. Edit command file and write following code into it
Code:
--update_package=/cache/dlpkgfile
6. After doing that connect your FonePad7 in USB Debugging mode to your computer (To enable USB Debugging mode go into Settings>Developer Options and tick USB Debugging) (To enable Developer Options go to Settings>About>Software Information and tap Build Number continuously about 6-7 times)
7. After connecting your FonePad7 with your computer using open.cmd (this package can be downloaded here ) give following command
Code:
adb reboot recovery
8. Your FonePad7 will now reboot and start installing system updates


>>From 5.1.6 to 5.2.2
 
1. No need to root this time. Just download partial update file and place it inside the folder where your adb drivers are extracted.
2. Connect your FonePad7 to your computer and Run open.cmd file and give following command
Code:
fastboot flash update V5.1.6_To_V5.2.2_partial_update.zip
3. Your FonePad7 will now reboot and start installing system updates.


>>From 5.2.2 to 5.2.5
 
Follow same tutorial as used for 3.2.4 to 5.1.6


>>From 5.2.5 to 6.3.6
 
I have already mentioned this method in the starting of this post find it and use it.


>>From 6.3.6 to 6.4.2
 
Just download partial update file extract it and copy the zip file which you got after extraction to root of internal memory. You will get Update Notification. (If no update notification just reboot your FonePad you will get it)

As of this morning, my ME372CG gives the "Server is busy" response. So, my guess is .. update server is being spammed with update requests.

As I'm still rocking Android 4.3 ... could you give me a brief summary as to how to intercept the update and save the file instead of updating immediately?

Of course with the sole intention of posting the update-file here on XDA.
