I have extracted and repackaged the stock Asus kernels for 9.2.1.17 and 9.2.1.21 from the US firmware updates downloaded from the Asus support site. I have included the associated stock kernel modules, as well. I have included 2 versions of each, secure and insecure. The secure means that the only changes that I made was to update the updater-script to make them CWM flashable and did NOT change anything in the default.prop file. "adb shell" as root probably won't work on the secure versions. The insecure versions have the updater-script change, as well as the default.prop file changed to read "ro.secure=0" and "ro.debuggable=1" and hopefully work with "adb shell" as root. In both, cases, I have included the kernel modules that came with the respective firmware. If already rooted, I would recommend flashing the insecure versions. I have tested all and they all flash and boot for me. Enjoy.

I think you have a typo for the .21 insecure link, it is for the secure one. I just copied the link URL and added 'in' to get the correct one.

Thanks for these stock kernels, are there differences between US and WW kernels, or is it save to flash these kernels on my WW device.

I really don't know if the kernels are different between the 2 versions. As far as custom ROMs (which include a kernel), I've used ROMs that were based on WW on my US device. The WW may set EU for wi-fi regulatory setting or something, giving you a couple more wi-fi channels, I don't know. When I get time, I'll download a corresponding WW version and pull the kernel and compare to US by md5 checksum and see. I'm going to guess that as far as the raw kernel itself, there probably isn't any difference, since Asus only ever offers 1 version of kernel source code per release. There could be differences in the files packed in the initrd that is part of the kernel package, which is part of the normal ROM package or a particular ROM may have differences between the Worldwide (WW) and the US versions.

I'm assuming you are talking about the stock kernel for TF101G since there's not that version for the standard TF101. I'll give it a look in the next day or so when I have time and get one posted from the stock firmware for TF101G.

OK, so I just compared the compressed kernel zImage from each of the Asus stock 9.2.1.21US and 9.2.1.21WW packages with md5sum and the checksums are different although the file size is the same. So there must be at least a small difference, could only be a letter or number or a word or multiple words different but something is different. Like I said before, I have used ROMs on my system that were based on both the US or the WW version and both seem to work fine. My device is US of course, but rooted.

I just flashed the .21 insecure on my WW tablet, the kernel version is exactly the same as an unrooted stock ww tablet from my brother, 2.6.39.4-00001-g4cf4e0c [email protected]#1
So i think it is save to say that us and ww kernels are the same?

The difference may be in the ramdisk contents or as simple as different ROM build numbers. The md5s are different so there is at least 1 bit of info that's different. Just be sure you have a backup and give it a try. I believe you're safe to use either if you're rooted, it may keep you from cwm flashing the next fota if you have US tab but flashed WW anything.
