Hi!

I bought this device few time after the release. At the time there was an official update from ASUS and I updated it. I remember that it said that there was no way to go back to the original firmware. The thing is. I unlocked my device at that time and now, after trying many different custom ROMS, there is not one that works ok. My device is slow, always hanging, it's not usable at all. My question for the experts are:

- Do I have the correct firmware, kernel, whatever installed?
- What ROM can I install that does not have these problems?

My Asus tablet

Hi! Anyone can help me with this? I think the tablet became slow when I made the official upgrade from ASUS and now I can't revert it

Many of the KitKat ROMs are a lot faster. I used CROMBi for a while, at it was mostly stable. You will have to unlock your bootloader and flash a TWRP 2.8

Thanks cmendonc2. The problem is that I updated the tablet itself (not the ROM) as soon as I bought it and it has been slow since that time. I don't know if I can revert to the state that was from factory. I already tried many ROM's and the slowness is always there.

Katkiss 4.4.4 plus added in Seeder.apk..
The thing screams...
I am running it next to the Nexus 10 and both are running about the same..
Only thing is the TF300T is a bit slower on the Multitasking when downloading from Play Store and or TB backup installs..
otherwise if I was to be buying one for someone, at the price they are now, plus the expandable storage options...
I would still think this was not a bad buy..
As the Nexus 10 has great specs and zooms but its developed a yellow tinge on the screen that seems to happen to a few of them after 1-2 years..
and its not like the screen is on for extended periods.. or left on.. just a production fault.. we are having a go at Google now about it.. as cant even get replacement LCD's for it..

I installed CROMBi but the problem remains. My TF300T has some other problem that began with the first official asus upgrade I made. No one knows what I'm talking about? The tablet is slow to do everything, except when inside apps.

Try to wipe internal memory from recovery and flash katkiss 5.0.1 rom. It works better than kitkat roms

Thanks xfim. I installed and it seems much more stable. I'm having problems with gapps, they don't install, don't know why but I'm going to ask in the katkiss topic.
