Owners of the Asus Transformer TF300T are in for a special treat as the tablet is finally getting a custom recovery in the form of the TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) Recovery 2.1.5. TWRP Recovery is a custom recovery built from the ground up, is easy to use, and features a lot of customization tools that users can benefit from.
Based primarily on the recovery images from the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), TWRP Recovery is loaded with all the standard recovery options but with added modifications such as a fully touch-driven interface to navigate instead of the traditional button pushing. The user-interface is fully coded in XML and is completely customizable by setting themes.
However, TWRP Recovery is currently a work in progress, with some minor issues that still need weeding out. Continue reading the rest of the guide to learn more on how you can install TWRP Recovery on your Asus Transformer Pad TF300T.
For this method, you’ll need a Windows PC, with the Android USB drivers installed on the PC. To install the drivers, just download and install the Asus Pad PC Suite from the official Asus support site for the tablet. Make sure that the PC Suite is not running, not even in the background, as you perform the steps below.
fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery twrp.blob
This procedure is an easy one to perform. You will need the Android Terminal Emulator app installed on your tablet for this method to work.
dd if=/sdcard/twrp.blob of/dev/block/mmcblk0p4
Congratulations! You have successfully installed TWRP Recovery on your ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T. You can now install custom ROMs, hacks and kernels using the custom recovery.
