yes very true, just wanted to get all things there..so we have a full list and users who want to buy it know what they are getting...

It's not exactly a hardware bug it's just the way the hardware is. Also you should add in red letters or something that doing adb reboot bootloader or adb reboot fastboot bricks the device. And you should put those drivers someone found and give credits for it too.

Hi

So I got my girlfriend the Memo Pad 7, and encountered a few problems:

- Sleep Of Death: the device refused to wake up from standby a few times. had her adjust sleep timer to 10 mins atm. this is on latest update.
- Offline charging: the device reached 0% battery and shut down. when we tried charging it - it powered on - completely into main screen, no big battery logo and "off" charging. this is after a few times of shutdown and re-connecting the charger in order to specifically enter offline charging.

Apart from this, the tab is very nice and a good value for money imo. I have the Nexus 7 and I LOVE it. Asus products are top-notch. :good:

I haven't see any of these. Try doing a factory reset. If it doesn't help then take it under warranty and explain your problems. They will either fix them, or give you a new one.

ASUS memo pad 7 battery problem.

Good morning:

First I ask since no apologies if this topic goes here, if not please move it to an administrator.

My problem is this:
I have a memo pad ASUS Tablet 7. Apparently battery has run out.
When I attempt to charge a battery is displayed red identical to the image. (photo attached)

When I try to turn it on the same image appears on the battery. (photo attached)

I left it overnight charging it but still leave the same image. (photo attached)

Is not it because of a problem? Would you happened to anyone? How I can fix it?
Thank you very much.


Regards and apologies.

This is the correct place more or less.
Maybe your usb cable does not fit correctly (is broken)
try another one if you have (plug it into the charger)
I saw the same issue in the store where I bought mine. on the demo tablet they had there.
changing the usb cable worked.

Hey,
I've had the same problem as you. I think the offline charging does not work as well on your unit, however the way i fixed it was charging it enough just so I was able to boot it up and then charging the rest when its powered.

Asus memo pad 7

Thank you very much for the answers.

@ crazykiddo I tried several USB cables and chargers. I have not had any results. :rolleyes:

@ jayyenn I did not understand very well your answer. Do I have to turn it on? How have you solved? :confused:

Still not working. Help please. :)
Again thank you very much to all.

Re: [Asus MeMo Pad 7] Roms, Rooting, Bugs, General

I didn't find one so I got myself a universal like case.. And I also bought a pouch. If there is any official case for MeMoPad 7, that would be reall grea! :laugh:

There are official ones, you can find them on the ASUS website. Also I think that a nexus 7 one fits, but I'm not sure are all ports accessible.

Try using AC power instead of USB and insert it directly in the wall socket and leave it off. If you used AC then try with USB but leave it off at least 20 minutes and then try to power it up. If that fails you *could* try going to download mode using power + vol up and vol down and then charge it with AC and then press the reset button. I don't recommend this,do it only as a last resort. If you are unable to take it from download mode then you should go to service.

need your help guys

Hi everyone
My me 172 works very well but when I run games on it ,they start to lag and the lag is repeated
I wonder if you have the same problem or not .is it related to the version of my android? For example when I run jetpack joyride
It is really difficult to play it (laggy).I have tried temple run and lane splitter with the same problem
Another problem is about the apps .I cannot move any of them
To my SD card. Do you know a solution to this problem?
As far as I know I have to root my device to do so.but
I don't know how to do it.
The last thing is about ubunto which has enabled nexus 7 users
To install its operating system on their devices giving them
Step by step information ,is it possible for us to do the same thing
Thanks

    The wait is over....the utility for root Asus Memo Pad me172v is here!

    Please read carefully this post and remember before to do something...SKILLS REQUIRED! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK YOUR TABLET!!!

    you need:

    Of course, a me172v tablet (I've tested the utility on a 16gb version)
    At least 2gb Micro SD card with partition table formatted as FAT16 or FAT32!!! Pay attention...Micro SD less than 2GB and formatted as VOLUME without partition table doesn't work!!!

    NB: Asus cleardata.zip utility has the same problem, won't boot on a volume formatted SD card...it needs partition table, if you don't know how to do that, look at this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/SD_card_partitioning do, step 1, 2 and 4 but skip step 3. You also can use linux gparted to do it.

    Procedure to root me172v:

    Download Me172vDumpUtil_v0.2.zip at the end of this post.

    Unzip Me172vDumpUtil_v0.2.zip to / (root) of SD card

    Make sure the battery has full power and TURN OFF your me172v

    Insert the SD Card in the slot

    TURN ON your me172v

    After a while a dark blue screen with a menu with 3 options will appear: (if your tablet won't boot...probably you've made something wrong or your tablet is not compatible)

    _________________________________________________________________
    me172v Dump Util 0.2 by f-que
    select mode to continue ...
    please read included readme.txt!!!


    "Dump me172v flash and some info"

    "shutdown"

    "Restore me172v flash (previously saved)"


    "Press [power button] to Confirm or [Volume up or down] to Select"
    _________________________________________________________________

    Press [volume up] key and select "Dump me172v flash and some info" pressing [power button]

    take a cup of coffee...the process will take 6/7 minutes or more!

    When the process is finished the tablet will shutdown automatically.

    This procedure is necessary to have a system rom's full backup (without user data partition)

    Now save all the files you will found on /me172v/dump to a secure place.

    Now download Me172vRootUtil_v0.1.zip at the end of this post.

    If you want you can use another micro SD card but with the same feature (Fat16 or Fat32 formatted with partition table).

    If you don't use a new one, delete all files on SD card (after the copy of rom files to pc)

    Unzip Me172vRootUtil_v0.1.zip to / (root) of SD card

    Make sure the battery has full power and TURN OFF your me172v

    insert the SD Card in the slot

    TURN ON your me172v

    After some while a dark blue screen with a menu with 3 options will appear: (if your tablet won't boot...probably you've made something wrong or your tablet is not compatible)

    _________________________________________________________________
    me172v Root Util 0.1 by f-que
    select mode to continue ...
    please read included readme.txt!!!

    "root me172v"

    "shutdown"

    "unroot me172v"

    "Press [power button] to Confirm or [Volume up or down] to Select"
    _________________________________________________________________

    Press [volume up] key and select "root me172v" pressing [power button]

    When the process is finished the utility will ask you to remove the micro sd card, after you remove it the system will reboot.

    Your me172v is now rooted!! :)

    people who wants to know what my Root utility does, here's in sequence what will happen:

    Step 1) backup to /me172v/dump on sdcard of partition 2 (boot/kernel), partition 7 (logo) and u-boot environment (MTD1, MTD2)

    Step 2) replacement of partition 2 on device

    The differences between the original boot image and the new one (the rooted) are located into these 2 files:
    File default.prop:
    original:
    ro.secure=1
    ro.allow.mock.location=0
    ro.debuggable=0

    modified:
    ro.secure=0
    ro.allow.mock.location=1
    ro.debuggable=1

    File init.wmt.rc:
    Original:
    mount ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk1p1 /system wait noatime nosuid nodev barrier=0 journal_checksum noauto_da_alloc
    on property:ro.secure=0
    class_start eng

    Modified:
    mount ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk1p1 /system wait noatime nodev barrier=0 journal_checksum noauto_da_alloc
    # on property:ro.secure=0
    # class_start eng

    And of course...the new boot image is not signed!

    Step 3) Remove rsa pubblic key (variable wmt.rsa.pem) from u-boot environment (without the key...device can bootstrap with a unsigned imaqe!)

    Step 4) Add busybox, su and Superuser.apk to /system partition and set relative permissions (busybox doesn't replace original toolbox)

    Step 5) Change the boot logo

    Step 6) When the process is finished the utility will ask you to remove the micro sd card, after you remove it the system will reboot.

    If you don't want the new boot logo, you can restore partition 7 with DumpUtil.

    Please refer for all info of the both utilities into readme.txt inside the zip files.

    People who wants install a firewall app on me172v rooted:

    Some days ago, I started to attempt finding a way to root me172v device because I needed a firewall app on my tablet.

    Now I've made the utility to root our tablet, but I've tested various android firewall without success.

    The reason they don't work is that original kernel on me172v was compiled without CONFIG_NETFILTER_XT_MATCH_OWNER option.

    Read this: http://code.google.com/p/droidwall/wiki/FAQ

    I don't have any experience to recompile the kernel or modules...but I think that no one was born fully skilled, I just need the time to learn how to recompile it with the right options. ;)

    And of course, don't ask me now this mod, if I will achieve my goal....it will be posted here.

    Change log:

    Me172vDumpUtil_v0.2.zip:
    Version 0.1 - 19/05/2013: Initial Version
    Version 0.2 - 27/05/2013: Some bug fix (partition 9 was excluded from backup), added Restore function

    Me172vRootUtil_v0.1.zip
    Version 0.1 - 27/05/2013: Initial Version

    Download files from here: http://ampc.argdev.dk/

    A very special BIG THANKS to Crazykiddo (also for the mini site) and NerotNS for helping me to test and improve these utilities.

    DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK/RUIN YOUR TABLET IN ANY WAY.

    SKILLS REQUIRED! IF YOU DO NOT KNOW OF WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT...YOU ARE (PROBABLY) IN A WRONG PLACE.

    PLEASE DON'T SEND ME PRIVATE MESSAGE ABOUT THIS POST, WRITE ANY QUESTION HERE!

    PLEASE, DON'T INSERT THE MICRO SD CARD ON "POWERED ON TABLET", I DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS SOME AUTORUN SCRIPT, REMEMBER I'VE USED CLEARDATA SCRIPT TO DO me172vRootUtil!!!

    This work was made in my free time.
