Got my Padfone Infinity and station/tablet dock too and am interested in rooting it, would rather not have to unlock the bootloader though, just want root for backups and to maybe change build prop for Sky Go etc :)

Version details:

Android Version: 4.1.2

Baseband Version: M3.19.19-A80_12133 [Apr 11 2013 12:11;43]

Kernel Version: 3.4.0-perf-g00c0cd6-00001-g8fa9b78 [email protected])) #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Apr 15 19:29:09 CST 2013

Build Number: JZO54K.TW_Padfone-10.6.8.1-0

Camera f/w version: 71057

Padfone D/S Version: I8562-p565-tW00080005-c0219

Touch f/w version: C6 -T0 -V76

Paul & friends, any help on rooting would be greatly appreciated. I'm happy to be a guinea pig :)

Just picked up one of these, awesome phone. Decided to ask Asus support whether they planned on releasing a bootloader unlock tool, like they did for the Padfone2. They got back to me with:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for contacting ASUS Service Care.

Of course. Now we are try our best to. Please stay tuned for more news on our support website. Thanks for your understanding. Wish you a nice day!

So with any luck we'll have something from them sooner rather than later.

Just received another OTA update (my 2nd since getting the phone direct from TW), good to see ASUS are on the ball. Now on firmware version 10.6.8.9-0 (still Android 4.1.2) and also received a camera f/w update to version 71064. Also 3x ASUS s/w updates today in the Play Store. They have been busy :)

Just had another OTA update down, now on f/w JZO54K.TW_Padfone-10.6.8.10-0

Still Android 4.1.2, must be a bug fix release as can't see anything new/different and was only around a 6mb file.

do not bother about Rooting, Asus will Force Bootloader Unlock for Infinity to Root, meaning same policy applies Loosing Warranty.

the Rooting option for PF2 will not work for Infinity. Bugs and quirks on PF2 had been cleaned out, will not happen again on PFI.

Plus we do not have any plans to release the Rooting function for Infinity until Asus approves it for Bootloader Unlock.

@Chaz, as a guinea pig, you are taking a Huge Risk of Permanent Bricking your Phone and Loosing Warranty. Are you Up/ready for it?

Are you an ASUS rep?

contracted, as for rep NO. All rep for Asus dont know anything, only reading the guide/book given to them.

the only way to Root Asus phone with out breaking warranty, especially Padfone series, you will need their Developer plug-in console for the phone.

This plug-in are hardware coded plus Personal Identification coded plus Cellular number coded per device. With out all 3 components, rooting with out unlocking bootloader is impossible.

Any hint about the boot loader apk?

Sorry nope, it is my main phone that I use for work so cannot have it going down completely. Am happy to give any details on partitions, etc. and logcats or anything but can't be without it I'm afraid. I'm happy to wait for an ASUS bootloader unlock tool if that's the way to go. To be honest haven't needed root really as yet and if Sky get there arses in gear and get Sky Go to work on it then I wouldn't bother rooting. Have a Chromebook now for tinkering with, have that sideloaded with Ubuntu to 'play' with now :)

here is what I know for Padfone series, there is a likely know factor Asus working with Ubuntu. But there is also a 95% likely chance they will NOT make it available to Padfone 1 / 2 / Infinity. Meaning they will make a new Version Padfone for Ubuntu Touch OS. In Asus Mind, their thinking are similar to Apple thinking, they only will continue to upgrade their latest Flagship. The prior generation will be update later. If you want the latest OS, buy the newest Device!!
