PRIME! v1.6


This is a custom rom for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101


Special thanks to: Hacre | afm | MoDaCo | dc13 | supercurio | Bumble-Bee | RaYmAn | netarchy | Vividboarder | CurtisBeef​


This rom is a work in progress and all feedback is appreciated. It has everything that the stock rom has to offer with a few modifications designed to provide a better user experience. As always whenever installing any rom, please ensure that you are fully aware of what you are doing as no one enjoys seeing their pride and joy end up bricked or stuck in a boot-loop (although these are easily fixed if either were to happen so don't panic in the event that something goes wrong).


Instructions:
1. Copy ROM to sdcard
2. Verify the MD5 of the zip on the sdcard, DO NOT FLASH IF THIS DOESN'T MATCH THE MD5 UNDER THE DOWNLOAD LINK!
3. Boot into clockworkmod recovery
4. Take a nandroid backup (optional but highly recommended)
5. Install the ROM
6. Reboot and wait... The first boot may take a while...
7. After a successful restart, you can change one of the power mod or remove it if desired.


Rom Details:
Android 3.1
GPS - V1.3.2
WiFi - V5.1.50

Known Issues:
In Prime 1.6 if you flash a custom kernel you may experience a slight drop in performance due to a change in the way Prime optimises I/O performance.

About wifi support for channels 12 and 13 in Prime 1.6
When set to US mode the Transformer does not see chans 12 or 13. This is the default behaviour on US and WW roms. In EU mode these channels can be used.

To allow the TF to set EU mode please wait until three minutes pass on the first power up and then restart your transformer. This is after fresh install or factory reset.

US/EU mode can also be toggled by running /system/etc/setwifi.sh from a cli and you can check whether you are in EU or US mode by looking at the flag in /data. If this is removed the TF will set EU mode automatically on next reboot.


Strange codes appearing in Dos windows using ADB
The reason you see are seeing strange stuff in ADB with windows is because the dos prompt cannot interpret the colour codes. You have two solutions.

1- enable colour support using this - http://adoxa.110mb.com/ansicon/index.html

2- disable colour support...
Code:
alias ls='ls --color=never'

Cheers

I installed this fine thanks loads.

Would be nice if the asus update reminder could be taken off. I keep getting prompted to download it. I saw the thread about removing it but would rather a more permanent solution without the use for 3rd party apps.

Will give it some testing tonight

Yes, just flash and reboot and you won't lose your stuff.

For peace of mind though you should take a nandroid backup first, it's good practice to always do this before flashing any rom.

I have only got a UK device to test my roms on but if you want to flash it and provide feedback then that would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, I thought I would give you all a short update as I haven't been online much recently. I've had a few health issues, nothing serious just enough to put me off doing anything after work besides crashing out on the sofa in front of the telly. I'm over the worst though so I'll soon be getting back on track with the next evolution of PRIME!

    Firstly, thanks for all the support and feedback, and also some good ideas. Obviously the rom at present is not much more than stock with a few tweaks and add-ons. I am mostly going to keep it that way as I prefer the stock look and the option is there for anyone to use it as a base and theme it or tweak it further to their hearts content. I have seen a lot of good stuff that has been done already and long may it continue.

    I plan to add at the very least: init.d scripts, adhoc wifi support, the speaker config fix and I am hoping to have a replacement for the power options that introduces a menu instead of the current dialog that will allow shutdown, reboot, recovery and maybe even a warmboot option. Also until Asus fix that damn gmail widget problem I have a plan to resolve this too with a bit of manual intervention.

    I have four SKU editions of the stock 8.4.4.5 rom to build from, US,WW,TW and TB? no CN???, I don't even know if there was a CN build so if anyone can confirm this or explain what the TB means that will be good to know also. I'm not promising I'll do all versions but if it won't take up too much of my time then I might.

    Future releases will probably be in two formats, standard update zips for CWM and nvflash images, I may not do an nvflash image for each SKU though, again time permitting.

    I was just putting the finishing touches to a build based on the TW 8.4.5.15 3g rom but now this has dropped I'll divert and use this build as a base instead.

    Roach is in the UK. It's the middle of the night there.

    I'm still up and have just dumped the /system folder from the HC3.1 build, expect a rom soon...

    OK, I guess it ran it's course. No one using it so I am disabling.
