    Question about rooting (downgrading to build 10.6.1.14.08)

    Hi, I'm trying to follow the instructions here: ASUS TF700T unlock and root JB 4.2.1 stock | Asus Transformer TF700 | XDA Forums

    First of all. Are these instructions still current/suitable/recommended? Is there another route to routing that would be preferable?

    OK, here's the question. Before routing I'm supposed to downgrade to build 10.6.1.14.08. On the ASUS site here: Tablets & Mobile - ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T) - ASUS

    I found an entry for "ASUS Transformer Pad TF700T Firmware: V10.6.1.14.8 Only for US SKU (Android 4.2.1)"

    It says in part:
    ※Firmware update cannot do *SKU conversion* and downgrade version.
    Wrong SKU may cause update failure, You can only update your SW version on the Same SKU
    *How to check SW version of your Eee Pad Transformer Infinity TF700T?
    Path: [Settings]-->[About tablet]-->Build number
    Example: You should be able to see the build number US_epad-10.X.X.X_2012xxxx, where “US” means SKU.

    I'm not sure how to read that but it seems it won't work for a downgrade, only an update. Am I correct? The wording is a bit sketchy.

    If I am correct, how do I downgrade? Or is there a better way that will work with build 10.6.1.14.10?

    Thanks,

    MM

    It really irritates me that XDA hasn't removed/had someone modify that post. It is so old and intended for an old build of the Asus firmware.

    I suggest you look at Droidbound's tf700 custom rom and rooting guide in the tf700 developer section of this forum. It is an excellent resource and is kept up to date with the latest recovery downloads and ROM links.

    Later on if you are interested we have some threads covering installing some of the latest lollipop roms onto your model. Lots of people are sharing their experiences.

    And if you ever have any questions at all please don't hesitate to post. We keep a different atmosphere here than XDA the most important thing is to read and be patient. Problems following this guide only happen when the user was impatient and didn't read everything / operated on outdated or assumed knowledge.

    Good luck!

    Here's the link to my guide: Beginners Guide to flashing a custom ROM on TF700T

    The instructions for rooting are right under the headline: Rooting is optional

    Don't know what your intentions are, but imho just rooting this tablet is a waste of time. There's not much you can do to improve performance without unlocking the bootloader and flashing a custom rom.
    Read the guide, let us know if you have questions.

    OK, thanks.

    I'm off the Droidbound's thread!
