I kind of ran into a problem with my tablet, and right now I'm not surewhat else I can try to get this one resolved...
Ever since I got my tablet a month ago I've been researching into the wonderful art of rooting & flashing this baby. It's not like I haven't unlocked, flashed & rooted before, but I like to take my time and let stuff "mature" before going ahead. Parallell with this "processing of mine I've felt that CROMI-X is getting more and more interesting for me.
So - a couple of days ago I decided to take the leap. I downloaded all the files I might need and started off with unlocking my bootloader. Next step was to connect my tablet to my computer and push a new recovery image over, and that's where I got stuck.
- I can not seem to get any computer to pick up on the fact that I've connected the tablet. No "unknown devices, searching for drivers", no "new hardware installed". nothing.
What I've tried so far is 4 computers: two with Win 7, one with Win XP and one with Linux Mint (I believe it's Linux Mint 13). I've tried 4 different cables, I've tried it with the SDK installed and I tried it on computers without the toolkit installed. USB debugging is - of course - on. I've even tried a factory reset (didn't really believe in that one myself, but I felt I had to try anyway). Trying to send a "adb devices -l" returns nothing (of course).
I also tried to installed the USB-drivers from ASUS, but that one turns out to be a bit tricky since a driver install in Windows usually is done when new hardware is detected (and that's where I fail).
So - is there anything else I can try? Is there any other way of pushing an alternative recovery to the Tablet without using usb? (like put it on the sd-card and flash from there?) Can I at least root it some way?
I realize that I should probably have tried connecting the tablet before unlocking the bootloader, but since I haven't had any problems with it until now (otg works, charging works etc.) the thought never crossed my mind, and now with the bootloader unlocked I won't really be able to ask ASUS for help, right?
- Am I stuck? For real?
Fair enough - I like my tablet a lot, and I'll continue liking it even if I can't get it unlocked, but it would be a nice addition to at least get it rooted. (CROMi-X is the ultimate goal, but still...)
Inputs are welcome - Thanks in advance,
