Anyone else have trouble getting CWM to load up after restore of dump?

I have gone through all of the steps and I have put terminal emulator on tablet(can't get computer to recognize tablet) but I can not get it to load into recovery....I have tried getting to the recovery via rom manager but still no luck. Any help?

Trouble with CWM

Ok I have gone through all of the steps listed in the guide. I am having trouble getting to the recovery. My computer won't recognize my device and terminal emulator won't recognize any of the commands. I have tried booting into recovery via rom manager and it restarts and loads for a few seconds but them I get an error...the android is lieing on his back with an exclamation point in a red triangle. Can anyone help?

Try leave the tablet WAIT some minutes with the android with exclamation point...it should reboot automatically into normal kernel...

Ok so first, please don't quote the entire OP as it takes too much unneeded space. Please edit that part out and also please don't make two same posts, if you want to add something to your previous one, you have the edit option. Second, have you installed the sdk and the required drivers for the tablet onto your computer? Then what do you mean by terminal emulator not recognizing commands? Which command did you try sending? Third, we are not supported by ROM manager, and in my recovery thread, I said to use adb reboot recovery as the only way to reboot to it, as any other way could potentially damage your device. Also, were you on latest firmware at the time of flashing the recovery? The recovery is made using the files from my own tablet which is up to date. And finally, what is the state of the device at this moment? Is it bootable? Is it stuck in a loop? What does the screen say. Answer all of these questions and we might be able to help then.

Currently there are no ROMs, there are only dumps. Please don't confuse the two as they are not nearly the same thing. Also, if you are searching for dumps, you can find the link in post one in this thread.

Sorry

I don't normally post on the forums I apologize for everything that I did wrong... Was just trying to give more information.... I have sdk and adb on my computer haven't been able to find the drivers... My tablet is fully functional and but when I type...... Su or reboot recovery into android terminal emulator I get a command not recognized. The only reason that I tried to boot into recovery via ROM manager is because the other options weren't working for me..... So you know where I can get the drivers for this tablet. Again sorry if I do something wrong its just that I normally don't post

Your not giving us any concrete information.
1. is your tablet rooted correctly??
2. in terminal type "su" ENTER and see..
Remember that root and CWM (Recovery) Is NOT the same thing...

Pretty sure i rooted correctly

In terminal emulator it says su not found..... But titanium back up says I have root access and also any time I open an app that requires root access super user asks me if I want to Grant or deny permissions.

Ok so for starters you didn't answer half of my questions. Second if you read the OP that you've quoted, you would find the needed drivers linked. After that, did you change the default path in the terminal emulator and did you grant it superuser permissions?
Also, what did terminal say after you tried typing reboot recovery? Answer ALL of my previous questions and the news and then we can continue diagnosing what's wrong. Remember that I cannot help you in any way if you don't supply me with the information I asked for...
And for future reference, don't try any of this stuff without carefully READING the entire OP and instructions.

And also, an update for everyone else. I've been talking to ASUS again, and after several discussions, the guy from the support told me that he will forward my questions, bug reports, and source code requests to the his superiors and that he will come back to me as soon as he has any news/info.

You can root your tablet using my utility if you have the right firmware version... it should work also on 32gb version...

Make sure to do a full dump before root, in case something goes wrong you can restore your tablet.

Why do you need to go in recovery mode?

Thanks for the Help

I figured it out guys thanks for the help. It was a corrupt download. I finally got a good download and the tablet is now rooted and flash with cwm. Now all I need is a rom to flash to it!!!! Again thanks for all of your help!

    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.
