Announcement from sbdags: CROMi-X 6.0 released!
CROMi-X [Clean-ROM-Inheritance-Xenogenesis 6.x] by sbdags

TF701T USERS: YOU MUST BE UNLOCKED, ON THE ASUS STOCK JB 4.3 BOOTLOADER VERSION 10.26.1.18 AND HAVE A WORKING RECOVERY - CWM 6.0.4.6+ BEFORE FLASHING THIS ROM. SEE UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU ARE UNSURE

I recommend you do a full wipe if coming from another ROM. Choose Wipe in CWM. If you are unlocking for the first time then it will also force you to WIPE.

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. ;)

Don't forget to do a Nandroid Backup first and give the ROM 10 mins to stabilise!

HOW TO FLASH
Make sure you have prepared by copying the ROM zip file to your internal SD Card or external SD Card first.

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

You can flash CWM 6.0.4.7 using the instructions here.
Direct File Link is 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
Start the recovery by making sure the RCK icon is highlighted (use volume down to move) and push volume up to select.
If you need to move to the latest bootloader then manually install the 10.26.1.18 firmware from the Asus website.

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. :)

CROMi-X REODEXER DOWNLOAD

Click here to discover which is best : ODEX or DEODEX

Rather than release a whole new rom I made a small flashable zip file that will take CROMi-X DEODEX and ODEX the framework and system apks. This way you can do it yourself (And save me lots of work)

It takes about 5 mins to do and the result afterwards is you have a fully ODEXED rom. The odexed version feels smoother than the DEODEX version to me Although theoretically it should make no difference.

Instructions: Flash the DEODEX ROM then flash this after and reboot (Remember it takes about 5 mins to reodex a rom fully)

TF701T CWM ODEX Flashable Zip

Don't try this on a CM11 based rom or a non Asus 4.3 based rom as it will cause boot loops

Nice, thank. Downloading now.
2 Questions. What is the difference between the US version and the We version? How can I check the bootloader version and what is the latest?
I assume that I have the latest already because I installed you other rooted ROM with no issues but I just wanted to confirm.

And thanks again.

You can check the bootloader by reading the top left text when you boot into the bootloader Sounds like you already have the right one though

The only difference between the US and WW are the build.prop fingerprint and keys and US has different Wifi regulations so doesn't allow as many channels as WW. You can flash either regardless of where you bought the device

Still uploading 2 other mirrors.

AS you will see you can massively debloat the rom but I'm thinking there are probably loads of apps no one uses. I could probably clear 300MB of Asus rubbish and have it as a separate download?

Might be a good idea later. I've only had it a week so I still have almost all 32 gigs free the extra 300MB isn't that big of a deal. Also the extra bloat can be easily be done manually later.

fellow flashers, in aroma use volume up and down and power to make selections

Just like it says in bold red in the op lol

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
