It's supposed to work like that...You can't expect it to debug, use files on itself and transfer files all at the same time. In order to use MTP again, go to Settings>Storage>Menu button>USB Computer Connection>MTP and you will be able to transfer stuff again.

I might be blind, but can you post your website link in the very first post of the thread please? I found the website link already, but I think newbies won't find it easily if it's hidden in the many other posts...

You can't update it "offline" get a net connection and update.

I apologize if I seemed to act hostile with my previous post. Here is a link to a discussion about our issue. As it would seem they made some progress but I suggest you read the entire thread and see what they have achieved http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2183110&page=3

    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.
