[Clean-ROM-Inheritance-Xenogenesis] by sbdags


TF701T USERS: YOU MUST BE UNLOCKED, ON THE ASUS STOCK KK 4.4.2 BOOTLOADER VERSION 11.4.1.17 AND HAVE A WORKING RECOVERY - CWM 6.0.5.0+ BEFORE FLASHING THIS ROM. SEE UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU ARE UNSURE

I recommend you do a full wipe if coming from another ROM source (CM11 , etc). Choose Wipe in CWM. If you UNLOCK it will also force you to WIPE. You can upgrade (dirty flash) over Asus Stock or CROMi-X 6.x but please WIPE if you have any issues.

You can restore data from Titanium Backups but please do not restore system data or apps from a previous version or another ROM if you want a nice clean smooth upgrade experience.

If you are coming from another source like Cyanogenmod or AOSP then you must wipe first. No excuses.

Please Unlock using the Asus Unlock Tool first found here.
Note installing and running this app will wipe your device and void your warranty.

Finally copy the ROM to a folder on your internal SD and flash it from Recovery, and reboot
Don't forget to do a Nandroid Backup first and give the ROM 5 mins to stabilise!

How to Flash

Make sure you have prepared by copying the ROM zip file to your internal SD card first.

You can flash CWM 6.0.5.0 using the instructions here.

To flash a recovery you need to have the fastboot.exe file and cwm recovery.img file in the same folder.
Right click + shift on the folder they are in and choose open command prompt here

Boot into the Bootloader by either booting with the Power and Volume Down Buttons held down until you get the 3 icons or by typing the following into the command prompt.

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Then type the following commands to flash the recovery image:

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
OR

Use the bootloader and CWM upgrade zips below if you are already running a custom rom and recovery - just flash from recovery then install CROMi-X

KITKAT 4.4.2 11.4.1.17 WW BOOTLOADER AND CWM 6.0.5.0 FLASHABLE ZIP DOWNLOAD

11.4.1.17 WW Bootloader AND CWM 6.0.5.0 Download Mirror 1

KITKAT 4.4.2 11.4.1.17 US BOOTLOADER AND CWM 6.0.5.0 FLASHABLE ZIP DOWNLOAD

11.4.1.17 US Bootloader AND CWM 6.0.5.0 Download Mirror 1

MD5 Sum: d81e9a201b797bbcbe8b9090d7ce4c92f

Start the recovery by making sure the RCK icon is highlighted (use volume down to move) and push volume up to select.

In recovery choose install zip - install zip from /sdcard and maneuver to the folder you put the rom.zip (vol up and down) and select it using power button.

The AROMA installer will start - as we have no touch screen drivers in CWM yet you will have to use VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN to navigate and POWER to select. Choose as many options as you require

Finally reboot when finished.

Nice, thanks for all of your hard work.
I just noticed I forgot to install the what's next and I must have selected the wrong resolution so I was going to re-install anyways.

Thanks again.
