TWRP for Transformer Pad (compatible with Transformer Prime)
DISCONTINUED



mnkt.png



Team Win Recovery Project 2.8, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. TeamWin team started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of their own features. It is a fully touch driven user interface; no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.



DISCLAIMER : TeamWin team and myself will never ever be responsible for any damages you do to your device !



ALL CREDIT GOES TO AND ONLY TO :

-> TeamWin & omnirom teams (TWRP tree)
-> CyanogenMod team (ROM, device and kernel trees)
-> TheMuppets team (vendor tree)



NOTE : i am not affiliated with any of the teams mentioned above...



INSTALLATION :

=> Option 1 : your device does not have any custom recovery yet ! Please download any of the flashable .zip file below that you are interested in ;) Unzip it and flash recovery.img to your device using fastboot (your tablet must be in fastboot mode [bootloader menu]).
=> Option 2 : a custom recovery has already been flashed to your device ! Please download the flashable .zip file below that you are interested in and flash it from recovery as usual (don't forget to disable .zip signature checking in your current recovery...). From now on (2014-09-01) ALL my .zip files will be signed, so you will be able to flash them with .zip signature checking ON from recovery ! :good: :cowboy: :cool:



DOWNLOADS : <= CUSTOM RECOVERY FLASHABLE AND WITH DOCK SD CARD SUPPORT AS EXTERNAL STORAGE

=> STABLE branch : stable ! Includes all upstream merged commits ! EXT4+F2FS <= PLEASE DOWNLOAD LATEST OFFICIAL BUILD FROM TEAMWIN WEBSITE ! THANK YOU !
-> custom TWRP for TF300T (TF201 compatible) [without any device checking] | STABLE ()

=> DEV branch : not as stable as the regular one BUT you can safely flash and use it ;) EXT4+F2FS
-> custom TWRP for TF300T (TF201 compatible) [without any device checking] | DEV () <= NO FILES IN THIS CATEGORY ATM...

=> TRYOUTS : because i do not have a TF300T anymore, ALL releases will be community tested BEFORE they are flagged as working... :good: (do not worry if you decide to test one out, i will give you a procedure below to test it WITHOUT installing it to your device ;))

PLEASE DO PREFER FILES ABOVE (STABLE & DEV), ATM TRYOUTS ARE STILL THERE AS A FALLBACK ! Thank you !

TESTING OUT A RECOVERY IMAGE WITHOUT INSTALLING IT TO YOUR DEVICE : APPLY ANY CASE :good:

-> unzip any of my zipped recovery images you might be interested in...
-> in the unzipped directory where there is recovery.img, simply input the following fastboot command :
Code:
# fastboot boot recovery.img
:highfive: :good: (your device must be loaded to its bootloader menu [fastboot enabled on it]; if you are using Linux and have adb/fastboot installed on your computer, then the above shell command works as is (you may have to add 'sudo' before it onto Ubuntu / Debian based distributions; if your are using Windows then document yourself on how send properly a fastboot command to your tablet...) =>
Code:
# fastboot -i 0x0B05 boot recovery.img
SHOULD work...

INFO 1 : If you get a failure when flashing from recovery with regular / PhilZ CWM or legacy TWRP, please use the corresponding file WITHOUT device checking... thank you ! :good:

INFO 2 : STABLE branch DOWNLOADS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE DOWNLOADS TAB OF THIS PROJECT ;)

INFO 3 : The 'take a screenshot' from recovery feature is now merged upstream, so both STABLE & DEV branches ship with it ! :good:... Simply press 'volume down' + 'power' hardware keys on your device in order to save a screenshot from recovery to your microSD card (files are saved on it to 'Pictures/Screenshots' directory...)



Happy flashing :D

NOTE : I've started building it for myself, now i'm sharing it ! I use it everyday and still do not have any issue ! Anyway you can feel free to report back ;) Any feedback will ever be greatly appreciated !

PS : Flashing KK ROMs with this recovery is OK (it's its main purpose...), Flashing JB ones has not been tested yet so please report back if anything goes wrong with JB ROMs... Thank you !



NOTE : If you are interested in my work and download my files, please report back AND hit my THANKS button if you think i deserve it ! Thank you !​

PS : TWRP for TF300T is available as two separate download categories : STABLE & DEV branches ! The DEV branch is based off the stable one and is including features that are not available in the STABLE one yet (as upstream merged commits...) ! So the DEV branch is as stable as the STABLE one except for currently previewed features...

Have fun with it :good:​

ALL my TWRP for TF300T builds are now updated to v2.7.1.0 !

Hello all,

Today i am releasing TWRP 2.7.1.0 builds for both STABLE and DEV branches. Both download sources links (Dev-Host on post number 1 and xda downloads tab) are now updated :good:

You will find TWRP 2.7.1.0 changelog below (grabbed from official TeamWin website) :

What's new in 2.7.1.0:
  • Add GUI option to change or repair file systems on individual partitions. The change is destructive so backup your data including internal sdcard first. This option should make it a little easier to migrate a device from ext4 -> f2fs, for instance. You will find this option under Wipe -> Advanced Wipe, then select only one partition and then press the Repair or Change File System button. If a developer has added f2fs support for your device and we don't have it in TWRP, please contact me via PM to arrange for it to be added.
  • Various bugfixes to backup and restore
  • Improvements to USB storage handling
  • Added a class to search for files to make finding the correct brightness file automatic in most cases
  • Various other bugfixes and tweaks


Best regards

Good afternoon,

F2FS is not supported at all in my TWRP builds for TF300T ATM (kernel side and recovery side) because i really do not know if it is possible to implement F2FS to the CyanogenMod's kernel for TF300T that i am using for compiling the recovery (linux kernel v3.1).


Stay tuned !

Hey all,

We over at team crombi are working hard to get a CM and Asus based f2fs kernel....

Here is my github of the source code as this one is stock Asus the CM kernel is based off the same thing.... :D

https://github.com/monolithic-droid...mmit/1f898d5b3e15a5681cf4bdfa5c5e3576475d89bd

You are more then welcome to try it out, like I said it needs more testing....

Thx Josh

@ne0zone75 interesting you have 2.7.1.0 working. If i would it from my Omni source tree i get a distorted screen.
Did you change anything in the BoardConfig.mk ?

Absolutely not... i am using usual build flags BUT i am picking up recovery dock keyboard layout from local recovery tree instead of device's one... that is the only thing i have recently changed in ' .mk'.

With that said, i am building TWRP along with CM 11.0 sources tree (there is no init.recovery.rc) and i am using 'Official Linaro GCC' v4.7 for recovery + kernel. ;)


Kind regards

I am not a native English speaker, so I do not understand what you exactly mean with slant. Only half of the screen is used and it looks like the image is pressed together on the y axes and stretched on the X axes.

The lines are not clear (interlaced)

That is very odd... I am sure you are aware of this flag??

RECOVERY_GRAPHICS_USE_LINELENGTH := true -- fixes slanty looking graphics on some devices

Thx Josh

F2FS functionality added to DEV branch ! Update released !

Good afternoon,

I've implemented F2FS ONLY in the DEV branch,... after all this is a testing branch ! :p

To achieve this i've used @lj50036 (from CROMBi-kk team : thank you for your work !) F2FS enabled kernel for TF300T as the kernel of the recovery : THIS PART IS EXPERIMENTAL ! Then i turned ON F2FS support while building the recovery (dedicated TWRP build flag...).

Dev-Host download links are now updated for the DEV branch on post number 1 !


Any feedback on it will be very appreciated ;) BUT please, be very carefull if you decide to test it out ! Thank you !


NB : In order to be able to back F2FS partitions up AND to restore them as F2FS, you will have to back them up when they are already F2FS formatted and after having filled them with data : a backed up EXT4 partition CANNOT BE restored as F2FS and reciprocally !


Very kind regards

PS : F2FS filesystem by itself is probably NOT compatible with crypto ! Please DO NOT TRY to use crypto over F2FS ! Thank you...

I asked that because someone explain how to unlock Memopad HD7 and how to load the recovery.

The unlock app it's the same for TFT300
The recovery point to a downlaod link of a file for TF300T

Asus Memopad
Unlock (YouTube vdieo): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUeLp6hkvs0
Asus Unlock APK (v8): http://fs1.d-h.st/download/00033/86c/Unlock_v8.rar
TWRP mod: http://techerrata.com/file/twrp2/tf300t/openrecovery-twrp-2.5.0.0-tf300t-4.2.blob

What's TWRP blob file?

Thanks.

Hey mate your in the wrong forum...

You need to start your our, in general and ask for help there not here ...

Its OK that you ask if this recovery would work on your tablet, but this is not a help thread....

Thx Josh

I have both TF300T and Asus Memopad HD7

I already check in ME173X thread and I didn't find any info about recovery.

On internet I found link (posted before) that the recovery for TF300T should be OK for other Asus devices (the bootloader unlock is the same...).
To explain that (not to ask help) I posted the link in previous post.

For this reason i asked it in this thread about TWRP device compatibility.

I believe that could be intersting also for developper if this recovery works with other device to add the device name into the list.

Because if it's true the title can contains also Asus Memopad HD7.

I didn't ask a support about ME173X but just only this specifc recovery.

Do not worry ! Like i already said i will check your device's compatibility out with my TWRP builds (TF201 is, ME301T seems to...) ASAP BUT i am quite busy ATM...

Now, if it is the case, it will be up to you to unlock your bootloader and then flash the recovery on your own, according to your device's needs and i do think that @lj50036 was meaning that...

What do you to add this instruction to help to flash custom recovery first time

- Download the following files and save them to your PC http://www.mediafire.com/?4dx982z93w8z7wk

- Downlaod the TWRP recovery

- Extract the Fastboot.zip file and place the extracted files inside a single folder. You should acquire 4 files, namely:
adb.exe
AdbWinApi.dll
AdbWinUsbApi.dll
fastboot.exe

- Expand TWRP recovery archive file and rename the downloaded TWRP file as recovery.img (for easier reference).

- Copy or move the recovery.img file to where fastboot.exe is located. You should have a total of 5 files by now.

- Switch off your tablet.

- Boot into Fastboot Mode by pressing and holding down the [Power] and [Volume Down] buttons until you see the message “Press Vol Up to enter RCK”.

- Release the buttons when you see this message and wait for about 5 seconds. A new menu appears. Press the [Volume Down] button to select the USB icon, then press the [Volume Up] button to confirm your selection within 10 seconds, or else your tablet boots into Normal Mode.

- Connect your tablet to your PC via USB cable. Pelase check theat tehd evice is right rcognzied (you should install Asus USB driver)

- On your PC, go to the Fastboot folder and open a command prompt window. You can do this by pressing the Shift key on your keyboard and right-clicking on the empty white space inside the folder, then selecting “Open command prompt here” from the context menu.

- Enter the following command at the command prompt to install TWRP Recovery.
fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery recovery.img

- After installing, disconnect your tablet and reboot.
fastboot reboot

    New TRYOUT builds are online !

    Good morning,

    TWRP 2.8.3.0 updates for TF201/TF300T are now available for download from AFH. There are a few things to know about them before flashing... :

    -> they are built from omnirom kitkat sources (i never built from those before...) BUT TWRP sources come from the omnirom android-5.0 branch
    -> they are TRYOUT builds : simply report any issue in this thread, thank you !
    -> EXT4 version has full crypto. support
    -> F2FS version does not have any crypto. support
    -> dock hardware keyboard should work...

    Huge thanks to @lj50036 ! I added the F2FS functionality for /data to the omnirom kernel for TF201/TF300T by using several commits of his personal github repositories...

    => TWRP 2.8.3.0 EXT4 TRYOUT
    => TWRP 2.8.3.0 F2FS TRYOUT

    PS : files are available as flashable ZIPs BUT you can also use the fastboot method described in the opening post of this thread...

    NB : if these TRYOUTS are working as they should, they will replace files available in opening post of this thread in about one week, when feedback will be there...

    Kind regards
