Pre-MCR WWE ROM for the Padfone 2

31 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

In this topic i've posted a custom recovery that allows developers to create custom ROMs.

To show this in action, I deodexed and prerooted the WWE 10.4.11.13 update, as well as removing the recovery overwrite function. In advance of maybe creating a MoDaCo Custom ROM and kitchen i've run it through my optimisation scripts to give that extra bit of speed and reduction in size. You can have a play now and see what you think!

Please reply to this post if you want a MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Padfone 2!

  • DOWNLOAD (ROMraid) - MD5: c887e5a7d51baed822bac0fa529deabf

I've flashed this on my device and it's running great, but use at your own risk of course. :)

Note that if you are flashing to / from a different region (e.g. WWE<>TW) then as your device is being re-partitioned, you may need to wipe. If the initial flash fails, wipe data, then flash again. If this flash still fails, restart recovery then flash again. :)

you're right!

1- install asus drivers, until your phone has been recognized by windows on device manager;

2- install unlock.apk for padfone 2 provided by asus, then you got bootloader unlocked (oficially, this will avoid your warranty);

3- put phone into Fastboot MODE!!! (power off then turn on by holding Vol UP + Power button) the screen should stays with ASUS logo and white letters on top;

4- open cmd and then go to your adb folder, put recovery files into there, flash modded recovery from Paul (http://www.modaco.co...asus-padfone-2/)by typing the command: fastboot flash recovery recovery.modaco.r1.img

5- now that you have the modded recovery flashed, leave the rom you want on root of sdcard;

6- boot into recovery (power off then turn on by holding vol down + power button);

7- choose "apply update from external card", find the .zip file on the root and confirm on power button;

8- flash procedure starts;

9- reboot and you're done!

I think that's all... if I forgot something, someone please advise it!

Paul is the best one to answer your question.

I don't know if this Pre-MCR (Modaco Custom Rom) is wipe or no-wipe, I'm at work and will do the flash procedure as soon I get home.

By the way, I did a TitaniumBackup for all apps + data.

Paul, does your modded recovery can do a nandroid backup? Can't see this option.

If Paul flashed that and he didn't experienced any problem.. try to download his ROM again.. maybe the ROM got corrupted while in a process of download..or download the Asus new firmware update first then flash Paul's ROM.

The file isn't corrupted because MD5 matches exactly the original one.

Could you please gently tell me the detailed procedure to install asus new fw update and then flash Pre-MCR from Paul?

Hi!! :)

Does it work? light goes ...

You've followed the steps of ahkai98?

The battery icons are in: SistemUI.apk --(Rename to *. Zip)-->drawable-hdpi

in other rom dexoxeadas are there, would be substituted for each other,

my battery I like is this:

http://ul.to/8c7xojpi

when I have some time I'll look more ...

Flashing a stock firmware will make you lose root, however your bootloader will still be unlocked.

Pre-MCR loaded up onto my new Padfone 2. Looking forward to a full MCR.

Fingers crossed a custom recovery will come along soon.

This is a great start! I'm excited to have flashed my first custom rom for this guy. I've been flashing the MCR roms since the Acer Liquid. Thanks Paul! I'm really hoping development for this device will take off. It's a shame that it's only available in a limited number of markets.

OK Paul...... I'm moving forward having continued my research. Have installed SDK with the minimum packages needed to get this done. I've also located my ADB folder and confirmed my device - padfone 2 is recognised. You may think me lacking, but i'm gonna nail this thing....... Garmin!....Be Gone!!!! :-)

Stay tuned.....
