    Lightbulb Root ASUS TF701 KITKAT

    Steps to Root TF701 4.4.2 KITKAT

    It worked for me.

    Do this at your Own Risk.

    If you don't recieve the OTA update because your tablet is rooted, and you have
    a custom recovery.

    I found a simply solution

    1. Download 4.4.2 .zip file (Android 4.4.2 ? OTA ? TF701T (Macallan) | Droid Basement)

    2. Download the CWM recovery 6.0.5 img (Recovery ? ClockworkMod 6.0.5.0 (CM 11.0) ? TF701T (Macallan) | Droid Basement)

    (See installation instructions at the end)
    3.Install the Android O.S update from .zip file in CWM recovery

    4. Reboot your tablet, after a few minutes you're on KITKAT.

    ROOT & RECOVERY
    1. Install an ADB bootloader as ADB Fastboot or Minimal ADB and Fastboot
    2.Execute the Bootloader ADB (it's a command window)
    3.Install recovery img. from adb bootloader ( I use Minimal ADB and Fastboot)
    You must paste the dowloaded file (recovery.img) into the same path/directory of your ADB bootloader
    Follow instructions from recovery.img URL or see tha attached image.

    4. Once you have a custom recovery on kitkat, download last update of SuperSU.zip
    5. Boot the tablet on recovery mode and install the SuperSu file, then reboot and tha'ts all.

    How might andi's method and end result differ from what I stumbled upon at XDA?
    [ROM]★★[TF701T][Asus Stock Roote… | Transformer TF701 | XDA Forum)
    I'm partially tempted to try 4.4 but am fairly happy with 4.3 and exposed.

    andi described how to flash the Asus stock rom.
    The rom in your link is sbdag's stock rooted rom. It is very much like stock but with a few basic tweaks (sdcard fix, busybox - it's in the change log..)
    That stock rooted rom was his base for developing CROMi-X 7.0 which IMO is a big improvement to the 4.4 stock. That baby-blue color theme just drove me up the walls!
    If you want to give it a whirl, make a nandroid of your 4.3 installation, flash the BL/recovery package from the CROMi-X 7.0 OP, reboot and then flash the rom.
    The 11.4.1.17 bootloader is backwards compatible with 4.3. So if you don't like 4.4 you can just restore your nandroid.

    A complete backup in recovery. In TWRP and cwm the default "backup" function will create an image of your system, data and recovery partitions, enabling you to try a completely different rom and returning to the previous installation by just restoring the nandroid.
