Announcement from hardslog: ZOMBi-POP 5.1.1 BETA!



YOU MUST BE ON THE ASUS STOCK JB 4.2.1 BOOTLOADER VERSION ENDING IN 27.1 or 27.5 AND TWRP 2.7+ OR CWM 6.5.0.0+ BEFORE FLASHING THIS ROM. SEE UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU ARE UNSURE

UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS

Steps

1. If you haven’t yet, unlock your TF300 by following these instructions.

2. Install the latest version of Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) 2.7+ Note this ROM will NOT install with older versions of recovery!

TWRP OFFICIAL DOWNLOADS

Download the recovery file from above, put it into the same folder where you have adb and fastboot files. Please rename it to twrp.blob or cwm.img and follow the instructions below:

Quote:

CWM:

Connect your transformer to your PC, reboot to the bootloader to enable fastboot by either holding down [power] and [volume down] or opening a command prompt in your adb.exe folder in windows:

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
To flash the recovery:

Code:
fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery cwm.img
or

Code:
fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery twrp.blob
A blue bar will go accross the screen on the tab and the command prompt will indicate it was successful in about 10 seconds

Then reboot the tablet either back to the bootloader or to android to complete

Code:
fastboot -i 0x0B05 reboot-bootloader
fastboot -i 0x0B05 reboot
You can now access the recovery by pushing [volume up] on the RCK icon in the bootloader screen

FLASHING THE ROM FROM RECOVERY

Steps

1. Download the ROM below and save to your internal or external SD Card. Do not unzip the file.

ZOMBi-POP ROM DOWNLOAD
Note: The first boot after install will take 15 mins whilst everything is built. Some people might think it is looping but it is not. The ROM also takes about 15 mins to stabilise after the first boot

ZOMBi-POP RC1 LP 5.1.1 Full Mirror 2

MD5 sum: e3980e1bffa539e676ac1269268abcd1

Flash this patch please as there is a file missing that gives better performance

RC1 Performance Patch

Remember if you are on rom2sd you beed to flash rom2sd1.zip first and if on data2sd use data2sd1.zip first.

FILES ARE SIGNED. IF YOU ENABLE SIGNATURE VERIFICATION IN RECOVERY IT WILL VALIDATE THE FILE BEFORE FLASHING.

ROM2SD/DATA2SD USERS PLEASE READ!

ROM2SD only works if you have ZOMBI-POP, ZOMBi-X, CROMBi-kk, CROMi-X or miniC flashed on internal with a THATv10+ kernel. Just choose ROM2SD in the installer of ZOMBi-POP to flash it to ROM2SD and the installer will do the rest.

- Install ZOMBi-POP and choose ROM2SD or DATA2SD install

The ROM2SD1.zip below is only needed if you need to switch your recovery to between normal and rom2sd mode. For Example you want to backup or restore a rom2sd installation. Flash once to go rom2sd and flash again to go back to normal. A reboot always puts you back to normal. Thanks to _that!

ROM2SD1.zip Download Mirror 1

ROM2SD1.zip Download Mirror 2

MD5 Sum: 7b699136d59ea3d5538570ccaf422acf

The DATA2SD1.zip below is only needed if you need to switch your recovery to between normal and data2sd mode. For Example you want to backup or restore a data2sd installation. Flash once to go data2sd and flash again to go back to normal. A reboot always puts you back to normal.

DATA2SD1.zip Download Mirror 1

DATA2SD1.zip Download Mirror 2

MD5 Sum: 9d5e9e2fd32593f981624499b37924b2

2. Boot to recovery – Either choose Boot to Recovery from the Power Menu if available on your current ROM or from the tablet power off hold the [volume down] button and press the [power] button. Once your see the flashing RCK icon, press [volume up] to select. If another icon is flashing use [volume down] to move between icons.

3. Using your recovery make a Nandroid Backup of your current setup

4. Select install and navigate to where you saved your ROM zip file.

5. Choose the ZOMBi-POP zip file and follow the on screen prompts to customize your installation.

6. Reboot and enjoy.



Using GParted to setup a micro SD for ROM2SD or DATA2SD!

First and foremost - DO NOT USE MINI TOOL!

Formatting a micro sd card for ROM2SD
Note for DATA2SD just do one partition in stead of 2

We will be using a GParted Live boot USB and a FAST good quality micro sd like a Sandisk or Samsung Class 10 - SDHC/SDXC UHS-1 card with read speed of at least 20MB/S. If you have a cheap chinese eBay card don't bother - they are not good enough.

You will also need a USB Stick with at least 1GB size. Note this process formats the USB disk so don't keep any important files on it. It will also wipe your micro sd so make sure you are prepared.

1. Go to the link below and download the GParted Live CD/USB/HD/PXE Bootable Image and save it somewhere you remember
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/download.php
2. Download Linux Live USB Creator and install it
http://www.linuxliveusb.com/

3. Fire up LiLi USB Creator:
a. Choose your USB key - I,e, the drive letter for your USB (not sd card)
b. Choose your GParted iso image for the source
c. Choose the check box to Format Key in FAT32 and hide files
d. Click the lightning bolt to create

4. Now you have a bootable disk you need to boot from it. You may need to alter you BIOS Settings on your PC to boot from a USB Stick but mine did it without messing.
5. Insert your micro SD card into an SD Card adapter and insert into PC
6. Boot into GParted

7. Choose Gparted Live <Enter>
8. Don’t touch keymap <Enter>
9. Languge <Enter>
10. Start Gparted Automatically
11. Change device to your micro sd )it will default to you hard disk - hda– mine is /dev/sdc



12. Delete all existing partitions

For a 64GB card: (resize as needed but /system doesn't need to be bigger than 1GB)
13. Create new, always select primary: do this 3 times.
14. FAT 32 : Size 16GB – this will be /dev/sdc1 in gparted and will be your sdcard for storage in Android
15. EXT4 : Size 42GB – this will be /dev/sdc2 in gparted and will be your /data partition in Android
16. EXT4 : Size 1GB – this will be /dev/sdc3 in gparted and will be your /system partition in Android (not needed for data2sd)



Apply, wait until it finishes and then reboot. Remember to remove the usb stick

*Images stolen from elsewhere as I couldn’t get it to save mine

Now you are ready to install ROM2SD. Note if you want to use DATA2SD then only do 2 partitions 1x FAT32 and 1x larger EXT4

Then reinstall ZOMBi-POP but this time choose the ROM2SD / DATA2SD option

All,

The ROM is still in BETA and by flashing it you are helping the BETA Testing process

It may still have some bugs, spontaneously reboot, drain the battery faster or heat up a bit. The aim is to make it better and fix them.

If you find a bug and want to report it here please post a logcat (after it occurred) with a description of what you were doing at the time and the rough timing in the logcat to look at (these things get huge!).

You can also post a dmesg which is the kernel boot logs and can indicate issues with data corruption or hardware.

If you get a reboot then please post a last_kmsg from the /proc folder.

How to get a logcat

How to get useful logs


Thank you!!

zombi-x

There is no Q&A section for this rom as it is still in dev so you are ok to post your questions here!
