[ROM] [TF201] KatKiss 5.1.1 - v30 [MultiWindow] [Stable] [RRO]

Search This thread
Yeah, now I can't get back into the recovery console and I wiped it for the new ROM. If I can get a new recovery console on it I can flash the new ROM. I might not have to revert back to the STOCK Asus 4.1.1

I'll work on this next week, when I have a day off from work. I'm going to have to devote my undivided attention to bringing this back to life.

It wouldn't turn off either had to let the battery drain over night. Al least I backed up the 4.2.1 install with TWRP before I went to town on it.

I'll trying this here on Tuesday;

What have you done? How did you flashed the Recovery? Can you boot into ADB Mode?

Keron, I flash TWRP_3.0.0.0.img from TWRP.me (using TWRP_2.8.7.0 recovery console that was functioning), not the kang version from here and it's incompatible with my bootloader: 10.6.1.27.1-20130711.

I can not boot the TF201 into anything it just hangs. More updates tomorrow.

I told you don't use a TWRP Version from TWRP. me. It only works with the standard Bootloader. For the 4.21 Bootloader you have to flash the Kang TWRP.

I know, now but I found out to late and bricked it; I'm hoping to get the correct TWRP Recovery Console on my TF201 tomorrow using the method here;

I have TWRP_tf201t_kang_2.8.7.2.img ready to go, if I can get it installed I should be able to flash the 5.1.1 ROM

Press the Power Button and Volume Down at the same time. Now you can choose between Recovery and adb Modus. If ADB is running you can connect your device to a pc. Then with the Program Odin you can flash the Bootloader or your recovery.

UPDATE, Keron, anyone else following;

Using minimalADB I was able to flash TWRP_2.8.5.1 (kang's version) and then reboot into a working recovery console. I have been called into work so I can't flash 5.1.1 today, BUT I'm going to get the files loaded onto a microSD, charge up the TF201 and start the from the beginning here tomorrow.

It is awesome to see the RC up on my TF201 again.

KatKiss logo with pulsating color balls now, waiting the 10 minutes to see if it's ALIVE on 5.1.1
 
Have you changed the data partition to F2FS?

Yes, once I flashed the recovery console via my laptop, using TWRP-2.8.5.1-kang.blob I was able to format '/data' to F2FS and then
flash KatKiss 5.1.1. a few apps are incompatible, and I'm missing the widget tab from my apps page, other than that it is running
smooth.

Okay, I'm stuck. ... and messed up ... :(

Went through the process and when I got to reboot, the ASUS logo comes up briefly, then the four penguins with messages about ... preinit ... Detecting filesystems ... and lines showing that the /data on internal (UDA) is f2fs ... the /data on microSD (for Data2SD/ROM2SD) is not present ... and /system on microSD the same, not present. These show for a minute or so, then it all loops around again.

TWRP v2.8.5.1 ... did all the format, wipes, change to f2fs, wipes, then flashed the latest versions of files listed in the 1st post of this thread ... these being:
KatKiss-5.1.1_TF201_030.zip ... BEAT-SuperSU-v2.68-20160228150503.zip ... and ... gapps-5.1.x-20150404-minimal-edition-signed.zip ...
Then reboot and ... stuck.

Went through the wipe/flash/reboot a couple times, same result.

Then I messed up ... attempted to just restore TWRP backup from before I started but now the bootloader won't start. I can get into the tablet through fastboot, and I have all the backup files from when I originally unlocked and rooted it, etc. etc., so I don't think (fingers crossed) that I've bricked it ... but I'm now in deeper than I thought I'd be so I've stopped digging.

I certainly hope someone can give me a hand and MANY thanks in advance for your help!

The same happened with me today when trying to install this ROM. I'm now stuck at the "Detecting Filesystems" screen, just as you described. I'm using TWRP 2.8.5.1 from Kang, i wiped all the partitions and changed the /data to F2FS folowing the instructions. I was previously using AOKP ROM. Any ideas?

Solved. Installer Hairybean Bootloader + TWRP, then reinstalled the newer TWRP, wiped cache & dalvik and now i'm successfuly using the ROM.

just installed (from original ROM), set to 1600 MHz, runs like charm...

Though I am bothered by the sleep of death bug... anything I can do against that?

I'll try that.
Though I wiped both after flashing...

Ok I wiped, I installed the right TWRP, I reflashed the kernel(s)... Still facing SOD's...
Any other suggestions? Would this issue be fixed, when changing to the Kitkat or Nougat Version of the ROM? I chosed this version, as it seems to be most stable...

Thank you all in advance!

Flashing this kernel would fix this issue on lollipop. I had this too and this solved the problem for me.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/devdb/project/dl/?id=11797

If you are looking for a stable version for your Prime, I recommend you to use this version or marshmallow. Both are great.
The nougat version has some little issues and was laggy when I used it.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Multiwindow allows you to split the screen in 2 vertically (while in landscape) or horizontally, you can switch an app back and forth between multiwindow mode and regular mode while it's running.

    MultiWindow

    attachment.php


    NavBar:
    - To switch between full screen and split View you can use the
    attachment.php
    NavBar Button
    (It will lay apps alternatively in one SplitView spot then the other.)
    - To change focus simply Tap on the app or use the
    attachment.php
    NavBar Button
    That button can also be used in non multiwindow mode to switch quickly between the 2 most recent apps.


    Global Actions
    Actions to switch the app between fullscreen / splitview, switch between the 2 most recent apps and to force the splitview slot have been added
    so you can bind them to a key / key combination with the Global KeyOverride or long press on navbar button too.

    Note: Most apps works ok in splitview mode, but some of them might not refresh correctly sometime.
    Same when rotating the screen while in splitview mode.
    To force a refresh simply tap the app or if you have 2 apps in split, just click twice on the switch to last app button:
    attachment.php
    to force it to relayout

    hi,
    I don't, know which stuff add TacoNikky on that package before pub it here.
    I'm sure that he change the kernel with Grimlock Kernel but I don't know anymore.

    In my experience Grimlock Kernel is the one that go well on TF201...With the others (that I test ) the Prime do not bootup (bootloop or lock on boot image)

    If you flash the original Timduru package make a TWRP backup...;)

    TacoNikky some post before, said that would have pub #29 in couple days to solve Stagefright vulnerability....

    but he will busy otherwise He would done it.

    Me too I'm waiting for then new release

    Can v24 be dirty flashed over v23?
    You can dirty flash it but you might have google play store issues ;)

    @TacoNikky

    Do you have mirror download link of version 024? Because I'm unable to download from Xda Dev server. Either it stops downloading every 20mb's stating file not found or Xda Dev server has heavy traffic. I faced same issue when I was downloading v023 and took whole day to complete finish.

    If possible please upload to androidfilehost, basketbuild, Dev-Host or such.

    btw; I'm using previous version of this ROM and its running very well. Thanks for your hard work. Keep-it-up!

    Thanks...
    Best Regards

    I am planning to release v25 in a week and I will give a mirror link for it. I suggest you to wait for it :good:
