    Anybody interested in making the tf300t usable without rooting or custom rom?

    This probably works for any tablet or trasnformer that was left in the dust on updates. From what I hear custom ROMs can introduce other problems especially with batteries in the keyboards and keyboard features. I am typing this on my tf300t right now and have figured out it can be used and is as fast as it was from day one. In my case faster than day one. There is one other person somewhere who discovered what works too. I have also figured out some quirks on the keyboard that I don't think anybody has addressed.

    If anybody is interested, I know it's an old tablet, but with a few tips and apps (mostly free on play store, but I bought the paid version), the tablet works great. If interested, just reply that you are interested. The downside is you have to access Google Docs, One Note, Evernote, etc. from the browser instead of the apps. The other downside is the installation of the Browser and other apps will take a long time to install, since the real issue is the tablet was never updated to install updates or apps. It took me a day to install a few apps and the Browser. If anyone is interested I will describe what works. The browser is Puffin, but there are a few things that need to be uninstalled to make the tablet soar. These have to be uninstalled after the Stuff you want is on the tablet. I would suggest, basic note programs, Note Everything, FiNote, I have compared this tablet to my new Samsung 5SE and it is just as fast surfing the Net. It's a painfully slow process to get stuff on in the beginning, but it's still a great tablet.

    Why did it take so long to install the apps?

    Hello,

    I am in the same situation. The tablet is extremely slow and unless you are determined, difficult to use. I would like to know the steps that you took to make the table usable. I am a computer noob and a little more explanation will be extremely helpful. also, if there is a way to reduce Google, Android and Asus bloatware, that is also useful. The Asus app that I use the most is mylibrary. Currently, I use Opera as browser. I also have Google Chrome which I hardly ever use. Thank you.

    Is it worth it?

    New member to this forum so hello to everyone!

    I have an ASUS TF300t I am trying to revive. I think it only needs a battery as the charger works and the power light blinks twice when it's pressed, and it worked the last time I used it which could be a few years ago. I am going to leave it on charge all night to see if it recovers a charge but if not, it will need a new $31.00 battery which I am more than capable of replacing.

    However, is it capable of being used again in any significant way? I'm not interested in games, but I would like to put my Waze on it for traveling and also a browser.

    I have been reading that there are ROM's (just like I installed on my Android phones in the past) that can be installed which require rooting, which I am also comfortable with, no matter how long the process takes as it's not critical I get it working immediately.

    My question is, is it worth it? Will I be able to put the current Android firmware on it? If not, is there a ROM that can simulate it to the point it might work for my needs? It has no radio, so all I need is WiFi to work.

    Thank you for any advice and I will keep anyone who is interested in this updated with my progress.

    Did you update the phone's system? There are old gadgets that are having problems updating the firmware.
