Smile Frequently Asked Questions for Asus Transformer TF300T Thread

Welcome to the Frequently Asked Questions for your Asus Transformer TF300T

This thread is here to help our community out as best as it can.
Why is this thread here?
There's 2 main reasons really. The first reason is to stop the development threads getting filled with questions which have nothing to do with the thread they're posted in. That then makes the thread go off-topic which is not what a development thread is there for.
The second reason is because there are too many repetitive questions being asked. The main problem with that is the fact that other users will sometimes attack the OP and 'flaming' them.

The main way which this thread will help to stop that happening is by helping you out as much as possible, while being in a friendly environment.
Below you will find the Thread Rules which I expect you all to follow and not to break them.

Quote:

XDA In General
First of all, I'm linking to some general XDA threads which can help you become more familiar with this site and how things run. I feel this is one thing which new users don't realize because they think it's okay to come to this site and post anywhere.
If you don't feel this applies to you, please move onto the Asus TF300T links further down this post.

The first of all is the Forum Rules, which is the first thread that you must read and implement for taking good time here

The XDA Tour and Report Posts

XDA New User Guide - I can't stress enough how important that thread is. If you follow what that guide says, you'll be well on your way to becoming an asset to the XDA forums.

[HOW TO] Make A Substantial Thread, Post, Question & Poll - This is also a must read thread. Why, you ask? Well it's simple. Reading this will show you the best way to post your thread to ensure that people will respond and be able to help you. Rather than just giving no information or a thread title called "Mah phone brikked. Hlp me plzzz!", following that thread will give you the best chance of being helped.

[HOW TO] Make A Good Signature - This really is needed because as you'll see in a lot of signatures, mine included, is that we list our current devices and what ROM/kernel we are using. This helps people to help us. Take a look at the thread to find out what else to include in your signature.

Sign USB ADB Drivers (both OS and Recovery modes)

I have a new TF300T factory ICS 4.0.3.

I was able to setup APX mode and its driver is correctly
installed. The tablet is recognized as an MTP device and the
internal (/sdcard) mount point is reachable.

After enabling setup/developer options/USB debugging,
ADB does not 'see' the device though, adb devices
does not return the serial number.

I'm guessing I need more / different drivers.
I have the 'naked driver 0.72' package, but the
.inf is not setup for 'install' and device manager
update driver says I have the latest driver installed?


Do I uninstall the USB driver ASUS sync installed and
and then install the 'naked driver' package from the
new device wizard?

Thanks

First some info. Windows thinks it should make the choices about drivers and is designed to keep us from choosing something that might cause problems. We need to maintain control through the process. I just received a window computer last week and had the same issue. This will be a long post but was necessary for me.

Here are the choices I had to use to change my drivers
.
windows-start - in search type device manager and return.
right click on the entry you wish to change the driver for.
Update Driver Software.
Browse my computer for driver software.
Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
Have Disk
Browse
choose the universal naked drivers directory
click on the proper inf file
windows says not signed; install anyway

using this method you don't have to uninstall your current driver
if you deviate at any step windows will refuse to allow this change
Good Luck!

I'm sorry your screen capture is not large enough to see.
With your tablet unplugged open device manager; now plug your tablet into the computer and you will either see asus adb interface or maybe a driver failure. Either a larger screen capture or try to explain the changes in device manager is needed.
It would be good if I knew the state of your tablet while you are doing this.
My screenshot for adb (at the top ) and data at the bottom.

Unhappy followup: tf300 adb drivers?

Both tablets work normally with their OSes and the supplied apps work as expected.
For the ICS one all I did was set developer options to enable adb, the tablet does display
the icon in the lower right corner, so the 'server' is working. I wanted to experiment
with custom firmware, so I got a new tablet that still has ICS so it can run nvflash
for tf300t.

Normal boot (the ICS tablet is unrooted & locked as it came from factory,
the JB one is rooted, (using OTA Rootkeeper and OTA JB updates),
locked). I have 2 tablets (Black is JB and Blue is ICS).

MTP and APX modes are recognized, neither recognizes ADB
('adb devices' does not return serial number with normal 'desktop'
displayed).

I see code 10 on the ASUS Transformer ADB interface, (with the usual 'exclamation point' error flag).
MTP and APX drivers did install and work as expected. normal OS (either ICS or JB) boot).
As I said, after looking at the content of the .inf file, there is a section for tf101 and tf201
but not for tf300 and tf700, I wondered if that was the issue ? If so, where does one get the
correct tf300t drivers for adb modes and fastboot mode?

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943104


As usual ASUS support was less than helpful. They tell me there are no ADB drivers
or Fastboot drivers.

While I'm asking, is ICS supposed to support USB mass storage, (on my HTC devices
I'm prompted for USB connection mode, (charge only (used with adb), disk (UMS) or
HTC sync)? ASUS doesn't prompt for UMS or MTP connection modes?

Thanks
