    1. When typing in "fastboot devices" for the first time during the unlock process, I had a number returned but it WAS NOT my serial number. It was probably 5-8 alpha:numerical digits longer. Still it didn't seem to be an issue as I just continued on...

    2. After installing TWRP and selecting the "reboot" option, I received a prompt asking if I wanted to install SU (Superuser) and aquire ROOT. Well of course I chose yes and seem to have acquired root that way quite easily. Even verified with Root Checker.
    A: Good point! I never checked that! Actually I think it's the Tegra chip serial - maybe :what:
    But you are right, I am going to edit the OP accordingly.

    B: Yes, TWRP will offer to root a stock system once you reboot. You can just cancel that. Custom roms are rooted anyway and /system always gets formatted when you flash a custom rom. So the root you established with TWRP doesn't survive that flash.

    Actually another good point: If you root with TWRP, then boot back into it and then do your stock nandroid, you would have a nandroid of a rooted stock rom.
    Can't really think of a situation where that would be helpful, but it certainly won't hurt.....

    I don't have or even know what nandroid is... Lol

    I sort of skipped that part...

    It like titanium backup? I've used that before.

    This is the NOOB thread!

    Also I have the 64gb version with no external SD card. Is it necessary to buy one?

    A nandroid is a system image you create in your recovery and it's covered in that guide up there^^^^^
    But you are giving me very good pointers to improve the OP. I now added a headline to that section. Thanks!

    It's not strictly necessary to have an external SD or microSD, but I have my most important files on the micro.
    Too many hard drives have konked on me without any warning... Much easier to pop out the micro and walk away than trying to extract the data from the internal.... I only have apps and media (videos, pictures) which I can download again from the source or have backed up in the cloud on the internal SD.
    Another reason would be: If you for some reason you have to wipe the entire system (major data corruption) including your data partition, you need to have your rom zip on an external card so you can flash it again.
    One more reason: Transfering large files from PC to tablet is still fastest by copying them to a microSD on your PC and back to your tablet. The MTP connection through your cable is painful! I use Superbeam for everything else, but for very large files nothing beats the copy/carry method.
    Look for a sale and get a cheap 8 or 16 gb class 10 UHS card - might come in handy.

    For cases like this! Restore from Cromi-X to stock ROM maybe you can help..you are more knowledgeable than I.

    Sweet! Thanks again for all the help! I agree that a lot of this info tends to be fragmented all over countless forums or out of date.

    Thanks! Feel free to copy whatever you can use and adapt it to the TF300 specifics. As long as you maintain that thread! LOL
    I really don't have the time to keep up with the developments of another device.

    Not a problem. Especially if you are considering selling the tf700 and replacing it with a 701. By the way, sbdags has a 701 ROM now.

    I know. My first TF701 went back to Amazon - digitizer was bust after 5 days. So I'm waiting a while before I unlock. I'll keep the 700 for a while - I want to hone my adb and fastboot skills
