Hey Guys

I have bought the asus Fonepad which so far is a great device.
But i can´t find any information onn the internet on how to root it.

Could you use a general root for the padfone or do i have to wait for
a special root.


Thank you

How to install cm rom in asus fonpad me137mg?
If you have already flashed a custom recovery and if there is a cm for your phone, and if you have an unlocked bootloader, follow this steps
1: Put on your sd card the cm rom for your device. IF you flash a rom for another device, you will brick your phone.
2: Make sure that you have enough battery power (like 80%)
3: Boot in recovery, select install and select your cm zip. Then confirm and wait.
4 (optional): Do a factory reset
5: Reboot and enjoy!

You need to unroot them in order to get the OTAs

I think that you need to factory reset all and then retry update

I have a FE380CG too, but no update. We don't get updates/custom rom/recoveries as long as anyone breaks intel chipset security. :(

Yes, I have this issue. It seems be releated to Splendid, that regulates the colour on the screen, or to the screen directly. :)

Its actually due to Intel Display Power Saving technology. Theres 1 file which requires root access to be removed. Removing that file fixes this issue, but I guess it probably negatively impacts the battery life and hence Asus people don't remove it.
