    TF201 Update

    So I have an old TF201 here and was considering dusting it off and start using it as a replacement for a travel laptop in my car during site inspections, however, I noticed that it hasn't received any software updates in a long time and was wondering if there was a way to sideload android updates on it. I am a novice when it comes to rooting and installing mods (read about it but never actually done it), so I have two questions.

    1. Is it worth the time investment to go through the process of root/mod, is the older CPU/GPU/Specs going to bog down on a modern version of android?

    2. Can you point me to a good tutorial on how do to root/mod the TF201?

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.


    Also, forgot to ask what mod would you recommend for the TF201?

    I was working on a separate guide for the tf201 in the same style as the existing 700 and 300 versions. Sadly I didn't get very far after realizing I lacked personal experience having never owned a tf201.

    I haven't checked recently but we have helped out many prime users to install the hairy bean bootloader to make the 201 mimic the 300 in terms of its bootloader. You should be able to find those threads in the development section.

    After that (actually before, so that you have a full tutorial as a reference) read the development guides for either of the other two devices (you can find them linked in my signature) it will be immensely helpful to have the context.
