Asus Memo Pad HD7 - Threads? Root? Roms?

Search This thread


Jun 30, 2010
Hi there,
just ordered my Asus Memo Pad HD7 and I didnt find a single Thread about it, am I just blind or are there none?

I am looking for Custom Roms etc, guess it's just a little early for that, but maybe just rooting works?

Is there a Thread or sub forum for the Memo Pad HD7 ?

Hi, sorry if this question has already been asked. I'm on 4.2 rooted, removed a few system apps, and i read few posts ago that in my configuration it will be impossible to upgrade in the futur.. Do you have a solution for this, flashing stock rom without an unlocked bootloader is only possible ?
Thanks in advance :)

Hi guys,

Please can someone upload /system/app for ME173X_WW_user_4.2.4.31212_20131030 firmware ?

I've removed somes app and I'll be stuck for futur upgrade, asus doesn't propose tools or stock rom.. :mad:

It would be great, thanks :)

the official ROM has no support for OTG why ?

Because there is no proper hardware support. You can use otg already if you provide additional usb power supply for external device. Without this additional power otg can not work with memopad hd7 regardless of firmware version.
It is not possible to change this with software upgrade or modification.

As stated in the recovery/rom thread: There has been an update.

I also just installed that update a few minutes ago.

I'm now on build-number: ME173X_WW_user_4.2.4.72702_20131128
(probably built on 28/11 according to the built number.)

It's still android 4.2.2
Thus far I only noticed a new icon for settings.

Disconnecting battery

My MeMo pad HD7 just failed to boot, no custom rom installed, but it was rooted. When I followed the instructions to open the cover screen size up, a 1.5" x 0.25" flexible strip of rubber fell off also. Where should this strip mount back on the board?

Looking at the back cover, the strip seems to fit and insulate the power and volume buttons from the copper board on the back cover. Not sure, but I will try mounting the strip with the two jutting out sections standing up and away from the copper board...

Whoa, that strip -is- the power and volume buttons!

Fixed.. Just as a helpful hint, from the other posts of people who have done this, remove the uSD card first before removing the cover. To remove the uSD card, just gently push down on it, and it will pop up. The gold teeth on the uSD card face the back cover when you later reinstall it.
