Dear Asus Transformer TF300T users,

Asus released the 4.2 Jellybean update. Since there are some people with fastboot problems or don't know how to install recovery or root, here is a guide which will let you:
- Install recovery and give you root acces on latest 4.2 update
- [Optional] Remove bloatware from your tablet

== Part 1 - Preparation ==
Before we start with this guide I can tell you guys it will work for:
- All 4.1 firmwares
- All 4.2 firmwares

So what do you need to do as a preparation of rooting and installing recovery:
1. Upgrade your tablet to the desired firmware: 4.1 or 4.2
2. Be sure the correct drivers for your tablet are installed!!
3. Download the updated rooting toolkit: Updated Motochopper rooting toolkit
4. Download TWRP for your firmware version:

5. Rename the downloaded TWRP blob file to twrp.blob and copy it to the root of your sdcard
5. Extract the rooting toolkit to a place you like.

== Part 2 - Rooting ==
1. Open up the folder where you placed the rooting toolkit.
2. Open the run file and follow the instructions
After installation the tablet should reboot and you should be rooted.

== Part 3 - Latest TWRP recovery ==
Be sure you have twrp.blob on your removable sdcard or it won't work!

1. Open up CMD in the folder were you have your adb files (Shift + Right Mouse Click => Open CMD here) and use the following commands to install TWRP:

adb shell
su
dd if=/Removable/MicroSD/twrp.blob of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4​

2. After this you need to reboot your tablet to let it install the recovery

Dear Asus Transformer TF300T users,

Asus released the Jellybean update in the United States. Here is a guide which will let you:
- Prepare your tablet for the Jellybean update
- Update your tablet to Jellybean software
- Install recovery and give you root acces
- [Optional] Remove bloatware from your tablet
- [Optional] Speed up your tablet using tweaks

== Part 1 - Prepare the tablet ==
First we need to install the 9.4.3.30 US update to be able to upgrade to the Jellybean software, then we will do the actual upgrade to Jellybean.

1) Download the US 9.4.4.3.30 update: Asus support site
2) Put the file on your tablets internal storage
3) Got to recovery and make a backup
4) In recovery do to a factory reset and wipe dalvik cache
- TWRP recovery: Wipe => Dalvik Cache and Wipe => Factory reset
- CWM recovery: Factory reset and Advanced => Wipe Dalvik Cache

5) Flash the US_epad-user-9.4.3.30.zip file
Don't install a custom recovery after doing this step. The Jellybean update will only be automatically launched with stock recovery
6) Reboot into your tablet and enable "USB-debugging" and "Unknown Sources" in settings
7) Connect your tablet to your pc and download this file: Automated Rooting Toolkit
8) Extract the rooting toolkit and follow the instructions to root your tablet.
9) Once you finished the rooting process you are ready to continue to the upgrade process :)

== Part 2 - Upgrade to Jellybean ==
This will upgrade your tablet to Jellybean (Android 4.1.1)

1) Download the necessary files:
- dlpkgfile: Jellybean OTA update Rename this file to dlpkgfile
- command: command.zip (Extract this zip before copying to your tablet)

2) Copy both files to your MicroSD card or internal storage
3) Open root explorer or another file explorer with root acces
4) Copy dlpkgfile to /cache folder and the file command to /cache/recovery
5) Now you need to reboot your tablet, this will start the installation of the Jellybean update
6) Wait untill the update is finished and now you have Jellybean on your tablet

== Part 3 - Install recovery and rooting ==
Let's start with installing the recovery :)

1) Download these 2 files:
- Jellybean recovery with fastboot files: Fastboot files + JB recovery
- Root files: Root Files
- You can also download the new CWM Touch recovery if you don't like TWRP: CWM Touch recovery thread

2) Extract the recovery with fastboot files zip and open a command prompt in the same folder of the adb and fastboot files (Shift + Right mouse)
3) Reboot into the bootloader of your tablet, type: adb reboot bootloader
4) When your tablet has reached the bootloader navigate with volume down to the usb icon and press volume up to confirm.
5) To flash the recovery type:
- TWRP: fastboot -i 0x0b05 flash recovery tf300t-jb.blob
- CWM: fastboot -i 0x0b05 flash recovery CWM-Touch.blob

6) A blue bar will appear and the recovery will be installed, when the blue bar is filled press volume up + power button to reboot into the tablet.

Now we will root the tablet :D

7) Copy Superuser-3.2-RC3-arm-signed to the internal storage of your tablet. then reboot into the bootloader again.
8) This time you need to select the RCK icon with volume up to enter the recovery image.
9) In recovery flash Superuser-3.2-RC3-arm-signed and reboot into the system
10) Install Supersu from Google Play
11) Open up Supersu, it will ask you to update the binary, choose yes.
12) Now your tablet should be rooted :)

Added my own link to dlpkgfile (OTA update file)

I hope this helps a lot of people :)

There are a lot of threads here, but not one that's really easy to follow for people that don't know everything about adb and that stuff :p

1) Download the necessary files:
dlpkgfile: Jellybean OTA updatehttps://docs.google.com/file/d/0B6LWCm-r4bHtYjBkS29yeFVSN2c/edit
command: command.zip (Extract this zip before copying to your tablet)

First off, thanks for this! ;)

Some questions.

Your link for the dlpkgfile currently seems to point to "GoogleDrive" and makes me login to mine and send a request to be able to download it, which I did. Not sure if you are aware of it working like that?

2nd and most importantly in my case:

I am currently running the Seanscreams Hydro ICS Rom and am considering going this or whatever path is necessary to upgrade to JB. Any tips or alternative suggestions to follow in a case such as mine since I'm not already coming from stock? Obviously I have unlocked and have root. Is there anyway to keep my current setup without having to wipe OR do I need to rely solely on TIBU in order to get back all my apps? :confused:

Thanks!

PS: Oh, one more question. Is there a current working recovery to allow for creating/saving a backup once on JB? The answer to this question may very well be my deciding factor on if to wait things out a bit longer or proceed to JB now.

Yeah. I can try to install, but, can my TF become a brick?

If you think you'll brick your device, then it's best not to try it.

Oops, forgot to set the file as public :p Now everyone should be able to download it :)

There is a JB recovery ;) it's TWRP recovery. It's in my tutorial in this part:

1) Download these 2 files:
Jellybean recovery with fastboot files: Fastboot files + JB recovery
Root files: Root Files

Thanks. I did get the GoogleDrive dl permission and started to dl the file. Unfortunately, it seems this is going to give me the same fits as some hosts such as goo, ect... from my work wifi as it seems to be hanging at 9% :silly:

I was just going to ask which recovery we are actually getting with your method and as per the "quoted" above, I see you mention it's TWRP. As to my understanding following some other threads, this still as of now doesn't allow for an actual "backup" - "restore". Is that correct?

It surely does have an actual backup and restore. It's only slightly broken. It can't back up or restore /boot, but that can be fixed by flashing the ROM after restoring your backup.

Does the downloaded dlpkgfile need its name changed when placed in /cache? When you download it, its a ridiculouslyLongName.bin ?

anyone know how to find out why the update is failing?
placed dlpkgfile into /cache/ and placed "command" file in /cache/recovery and the install failed.

pretty sure i "thawed" all my apps, and have the stock build.prop.....if i add apps to system/app will that cause a failed install? i just remembered as i typed this that i modded an app and placed it in system/app because it wasn't signed.

I haven't deciphered an answer for this question as of yet:

Does this work on an unlocked, rooted tablet running a custom ROM?

TIA

    First off I want to say awesome job to the OP for compiling this information, it works well....if you are paying attention. Is it noob proof, in theory yes but, there are a few gotchas if you are not paying attention or do not understand what is being asked of you via the instructions.

    First and foremost, when you download US 9.4.3.30 from the Asus support site, make sure to download the US VERSION! I downloaded the JP variant and it failed at 25% everytime. Asus is not a US company, and therefore the US version may or may not be listed first with their products. A lot of us (me included) will download the first piece of software we see and expect it to be the correct variant. IF you accidentally installed another firmware variant do not worry.....simply make sure you root the device (using the instructions from this thread) reinstall TWRP from Goo Mananger (found in the playstore), then follow part 1 again. From experience I know it works fine.

    Second, when you get to Part 2 and you copy the command file and the dlpkgfile you have to do more then simply reboot the device. So, copy the files to the correct places, turn off the TF300T, then hold power + down volume to start recovery, once the recovery message appears below the Device unlocked status message, press up volume to enter recovery. Now it runs the command script and will install the update.

    Lastly, running adb in the command prompt (aka DOS prompt) can require you to run it as admin. So copy the fastboot files+JB recovery to something like C:\Recovery (do this by creating a folder within the C: drive, something easy to change to through the command prompt, then go to the accessories folder, right click command prompt, left click "run as administrator", then type cd\, then cd\Recovery, or change directory to wherever you copied the files to.

    Everything else is fairly easy to follow. Im not a noob to this stuff, but Im not a veteran programmer either. Hope this helps!

    I unlocked the bootloader for V1.27 and still no dice when running the root tool. ADB finds the device and pushes the files to it but it still fails every time. SU is installed but no root.

    Thoughts?

    Hi i just had same issuse with latest asus firmware

    install TWRP recovery first via this link http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2187982
    then flash su via http://download.chainfire.eu/351/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.65.zip

    Hope this helps

    I only got stock kernel zip file. Should I flash stock ROM and Kernel with your command "filename".zip ? .. man I feel like a big dummy :confused:

    Sent from my Nexus S 4G using Tapatalk 2

    you can try to flash stock kernel using that command yes.

    I'll post a method to downgrade without problems tomorrow. There is a method to do it safely I think :)
