Wabi-Sabi: Finding the beauty in, and embracing the imperfect!

Perfect is repeatable. Imperfect is Perfect


PLEASE NOTE: I am not responsible for anything that happens to your device. This includes acts of God, your wife/girlfriend breaking it over your head for using it too much, or jealous iPhone owners!


I bring to you a tool to help UnBrick your Brick Prime. This should be used has a last resort.

..:: Description ::..
This is a Full Fastboot based solution that should allow you to flash any partition.

The IMG's used are blob signed, which our devices require.

..::Audience::..

Anyone who has flash stock rom, messed with the kernel, or can access fastboot.


**Please try DiamondBack thread before attempting to use this tool**

**Before using please install Universal Naked Driver**


**Big THANKS to Doktaphex for fastboot command**


  1. Extract it somewhere like your desktop, though anywhere will work.
    when i say extract it i mean use extract all so you get my file structure do not move these files or it will break
  2. Run / double click WSGFlasher.bat
  3. The script displays the readme at startup. close it and continue.
  4. Select what function you want to do and press [ENTER]
    Please be careful as to what file you drag and drop when it prompts you
    One final note do not give it a file from another device or a non .img file it will flash it anyway no matter what file you drag and drop once you press enter it flashes what ever was dragged onto the script. Also do not drag a radio img when it asks for recovery or in revers, bad things will happen Wile they are fixable by repeating the process I dont want anyone to mess up their device making such a simple mistake.

Further, if I get any parts wrong, PM me and I'll get those parts corrected.

Android Partition, SPL etc.

Partitions:
Followings are a list of partitions on your ASUS Transformer Prime (TF201).

misc - misc partition -
recovery - Recovery Partition - This is where the original CWM recovery or any other Recovery would go. Basically if you reboot into recovery it'll boot from here.
boot - This is your boot partition also known has kernel
system - This is where all your system information (ROM resides)
cache - cache (When you factory reset the phone, this area is wiped)
userdata - user data (like your login, your user settings etc) When you factory reset the tablet, this area is wiped)

So, if you replace the recovery image, you are pretty much set for updates provided here at XDA.

ROM images will normally replace boot and system images at the same time and often time, userdata and cache too; reseting the phone completely.


SPL/Bootloader/Bricking Tablets:
SPL / Bootloader is like BIOS on a computer. At least I think of it that way. SPL can be updated! SPL comes as either Security-On of Security-Off (S-ON/S-OFF).


How do I know the tablet is bricked? A bricked tablet can not boot into bootloader, recovery, or into normal operation modes. You can not connect to a bricked tablet via adb or fastboot. You can only see one screen on the tablet and it will be the first splash screen.

I am very intrigued, could you please post more about exactly what this tool does, as your description is rather vague, to a certain extent.

Thank you for this tool. It's great to have so many great developers on the Prime. (and people said there would be no development because of it's secret sauce)

Yep, those people were wrong...haha

Basically this is a full fastboot solution that should be able to flash any partition on your tablet via a USB host. I used this method to recover my own tablet.

Please check out OP of more information.

Really I own you credit for figuring out the proper fastboot command "fastboot -i 0x0b05". I'll add it to OP!!! Thanks

Hey! It wasn't me who figured that command out. I assume it was someone at androidroot.mobi or elsewhere. I mearly stumbled upon it with open arms. :D But thanks anyway.

If we can find out who first figured out that command then I'll be able to update my thread also. :D

If you have downloaded the WSG Unbricker please don't use it yet. I just realized once you unbrick, it will take you to stock .21 with NO ROOT access. I am currently in the process of fixing this and should have a new link up in about two hours.

So, would this unbrick if you tried to flash a stock Asus Blob file via CWM (the type 2 Brick)? I have not bricked myself, but this seems to be the only hard brick method so far that can't be fixed.

Thanks for putting this together, you make people like me who are spoiled by Samsung and ODIN feel more comfortable with unlocking their devices. ;)

Apologies for the noob question....

I have everything installed as per instructions, but your tool cannot communicate with my TFP since I cannot boot to bootloader (Unrecoverable bootloader error (0x00000004)).

Am I correct in assuming that this fix is not for me?
