Hey kids!!

Many of you may know me from XDA, before I was banned for life for telling them they were morons!! I guess they couldn't handle the truth!!

One thing I missed on XDA was a place to have a general, open discussion about ANYTHING related to this wonderful epad. There, you had to be on-topic and in the proper thread, or some asshole named Jerdog would bark at you and make you feel bad...and then excommunicate you!

So let's let the open forum begin...

First topic; For those of you having the charging issue, it IS the charging block that came with your TF. ASUS admitted that, finally, Saturday. They say to contact them and they'll send you a new one, BUT...

Getting through to them is a nightmare.

Office Depot sells ASUS TFs and accessories cheaper than ASUS does, and for $29.99 you can get the legit charging block, and it's $20 less than ASUS sells it for. It's even in the ASUS packaging. For $30 bucks I stopped wasting my valuable time and bit the bullet.

Okay...what else ya wanna talk about?

:tongue3:

Hola Neil, glad we still have the curmudgeon just in new diggs... I may be picking up a Transformer tomorrow... hopefully I won't be having any of the charging issues... and i have no clue if there is an office despot anywhere near me :/
THey claim the newer ones ship with a functional charging block. The former block wouldn't charge if you were over 90%, not necessarily a bad thing, but it wouldn't work at other times, (intermittently and randomly), too.

Neil, sorry about all the drama you endured on the other forum. I honestly don't think the OP and IronFist mod understood you point of view, but that is their loss. Glad to see you and the other "oldie" Mynions here. Not meaning in age but tenure. LOL. Bought a TF 3 weeks ago and like it so much better than my other play toy - Nook color. Lucked out on HP Touchpad and bought 4 32 GB ones on fire sale. Will be Christmas presents for my 4 oldest grandkids. Can't believe they were only $149 each. But I'm personally sticking with my TF powered with internet by my 3D.
Hey, Downtown!! Yeah, the support from the Mynions has been amazing. My getting booted just sped things up, though. Derek was already looking into moving the thread here until WarmDroid.Com is ready and my getting booted was a good catalyst. Glad I could help...:androidwink:

Between the OG4G and the Transformer, I feel like I have the perfect combo of toys. I tether the TF to the Evo on 4G all the time and get amazing speeds of 5-6MB. About the same as on my home WiFi.

What ROM are you running on your TF? I was running Prime 1.7, which I liked and then I found Revolver 2.1. Waaaaaay smoother and sleeker, especially with the Clemsyn kernel OCd to 1504. It updated today to 2.1.3 and the new Clemsyn 9 kernel hit and it's actually faster! Liking it a lot.

Which is ironic, because Gnufabio, (the guy who wrote the ROM) is primarily responsible for me getting booted off XDA. Asswipe. But Revolver has this built in app, Revolver Parts, that automatically updates the ROM and add-ons, so I don't have to deal with the pr#@k at all. And Roach (the guy who wrote Prime) and I were chatting on Freenode today and he's updating Prime to 1.8 this week, so I'll probably switch back when it's done. Lowetax is keeping me aware of what's going on, too. He and Derek both went to bat in my defense at XDA!! Unfortunately Jerdog is a bigger ass than Gnufabio...

So, keep checking in. I now have a relationship with a regional sales rep for ASUS, who's been sending me inside info on upcoming stuff, codes, apps, etc., and I'll be posting it here. And, as you know, I'm intense about my research so I'm keeping on top of everything Transformer. I have an ASUS laptop, too, which is an amazing piece of equipment as well (G73SW), so when I met the guy at Best Buy, he was a little amazed at my knowledge of ASUS. I've used their motherboards in the desktops I've built for years...

Let's keep the conversation going. I really like this site, a lot, and Myn says the site-runners are about as opposite from the XDA clowns as can be, especially in that they encourage this type of general thread.

And that is, as my Avatar would say, Excellent!!!

Hey all :) My husband and I are thinking about picking up 2 of these next week or so. Love this community, and love Android. Have been goofing around on my Droid X pretty much since I bought it, and am kind of a flashaholic. I think I'll have a lot of research to do for the TF - not even sure where to start yet! :) I'd like to avoid XDA as much as possible :p I don't mind going there for links, but ugh, that community.

Anyway, just introducing myself and saying hey :) Everyone seems pretty happy with their purchase and from what I can tell the modding options are good, but I've only just begun to do some reading. Hope to see you all around!

Welcome aboard, ND!! You stumbled into a great thread for exploring the Transformer. Most of this group has history together, coming from the only 2 decent, well run, interesting, helpful, family threads on XDA - Myn's Warm 2.2 and Myn's Synergy, the 2 best EVO ROMs. The guy who developed them, and runs the threads is a kind, smart, really nice, ultra high-quality guy, and the ROMS were, too. The threads, naturally, were the same, and we've all gotten pretty close. The support's unsurpassed.

I can't believe you guys got the dock. I bought this to get UNtied from the keyboard! I have a really good, new ASUS laptop if I want one, but I've barely used it since getting the TF. I love the portability of it..

Agreed on the Prime/Revolver differences. Revolver is definitely smoother and faster, and I'm getting better battery life on it, too. Even OCd to 1504/interactive (w/ SetCPU, Bruce). I also agree about GnuFabio...moreso...he was instrumental in getting me booted off XDA. TG he has that Revolver Parts app. He puts everything in it, so I don't need the thread. 2.5 is gonna drop in the morning. Parts says it's uploading now. It's gotta be semi-major, too, 'cause of the jump in v #.

And Prime 1.8.4 beta is out, too. It's definitely an RC, likely a final, as there are NO bugs.I ran it for the day before popping back to Rev 2.1.4 tonight.

So, I've been trying to figure out how to add sound to the boot animation. The directory structure is different, so unlike the Evo the files don't go in the same directory, and the sound file's not named the same...I tried all combinations of both. Anyone got any ideas?

Neil... I'm all about versatility... Having the option to go from tab to netbook as well as the added battery is a major plus....and I just bought a new laptop 2 weeks ago... And I'm still considering purchasing the dual touch acer iconia laptop...
hi... My name is Shaun... I'm a tech-a-holic
Yeah, Shaun, I think what I'm gonna do is wait to see if the dock drops in price, and if it gets around/under $100, I'll likely get one, and set my lappie up in a "permanent" position on my desk.

My (gorgeous, expensive, Italian leather) briefcase is designed to carry the lappie in a padded, center compartment, so if I carry the dock and tab I can always just leave the dock in the case until I need/want it.

And ....Hi, I'm Neil, and I, too, am a tech-a-holic...!!!

Inspite of what a $#@thead the dev is, Revolver 2.5 dropped this morning and it's sublime...faster,sleeker, smoother...flawless. Clemsyn 9 OCd to 1504 just makes it perfect.

And, coincidentally, Prime 1.8.4 beta dropped yesterday afternoon. It, too, is extremely nice, fast, smooth. And I love that Roach put in power-button options, but Revolver 2.5 wins by a slight edge. Maybe when Prime goes final it'll be there, but it isn't yet...

And, I've posted this in the other thread, but have to post it here, too...(sorry for the redundance):

WOW...I just logged on to the #asus-transformer# thread on Freenode and guess what?

I think they actually moved the thread, or changed its location just to keep me out!!! Too paranoid? Read on...

Up to, and as of, yesterday morning when I logged on there were always at least 50 people on it. But the moderators of (or at least major contributors to) that node are JERDOG and BADFROG, 2 of the sweethearts responsible for booting me off XDA. And yesterday morning about a minute after I logged in, jerkoff, er...jerdog, posted "Oh, look who's here...". I ignored him and did a private node chat with Roach, and logged off.

When I logged in last night and this morning the node was completely empty, save for me!!!

How juvenile. :_con:

SO GLAD TO BE ON ROOTZWIKI WITH MY MYNION FAMILY AND NEW FRIENDS!!!!! :grin3:

Beautiful, REAL LEATHER CASE, plus bonus screen protector, $16.99!!!

Hey guys, I ordered one of these figuring what the heck for that price, and turns out, it's quite a nice case. I got it today (3 days!) and am very, very pleased. It even came with a free screen shield. I got the black, but they have 3 colors. I saw a VERY comparable one at Macy's for $40.

Highly Recommended!!

i should have mine today or tomorrow.
i wish i had videoed me at 3:30 am attempting to install
the Zagg Invisible shield ! FAIL !

guess i need to poke a hole in it and ask for a replacement !
Not a fan of screen protectors, especially with Gorilla Glass (which the TF uses). GG has a prism effect when you use most shields, which I hate, and it's likely strong enough to resist almost anything, so I'll pass.

I haven't used one on the Evo for almost a year now, and it's been okay.

The TF case is really, amazingly nice for that price. You'll be pleasantly surprised!

I got my 32GB Transformer and dock on Monday from Newegg using their bundle deal. I like it a lot so far. The dock seems to slow down the whole system a bit but overall it is pretty nice.

I'm not sure if it is the YouTube app or what but I haven't seen videos buffer that much since using RealPlayer 10 years ago.
What was the deal? What'd you get, for how much?

I debated getting the 32, but with all my pics, videos and music in the onboard "sdcard", I still have 8G left. Add to that my 16G C10 micro SD card (with only 5G of mostly CWM backups on it), and I'm good.

:grin3:

PS - the V6 Supercharger Script works wonders for the speed on this thing. Eliminates A LOT of the buffering, and its super simple to use. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Also, root it, and run Revolver 2.5 ROM with the Clemsyn 10 kernel overclocked to 1504 (with SetCPU) and the V6 script, and prepare to have your mind blown.

It runs as fast as my EVO with Synergy!!!

It was $689 for the Tablet, Keyboard, and the Asus sleeve.

I just rooted it today and loaded Revolver on it with the Clemsyn kernel. I need to get the script then.
That's a decent deal...

I think this is the location of the V6:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=991276&page=182 or maybe page 1 of this thread...

Use script update8, and set it to Option 8, and youre good.

Any problems, post here and I'll keep checking.

Also, if you're gonna stick with Revolver, d/l Revolver Parts v2 from the Market. It'll keep everything updated automatically.

And, download the Reboot2Recovery app, also, as the reboot recovery option in v2 is buried. You can just put the R2R app on your homescreen, and VOILA!

Tami, welcome to RootzWiki and the TF forum. I use GTM and initially had issues staying connected on my TF. Uninstalled, reinstalled and now works great on both 3G and WiFi. Have also tried Adobe Connect but much prefer GTM. Love my TF and rarely fire up my lappy now. TF tethered to my EVO 3D and I'm a happy camper.
+1 to it all, with the exception being i tether to my OG4G in 4G and the TF flies!!

Bought ours today and love it! Already rooted and running Prime and Clemsyn kernel. Only issue so far is ADB isn't seeing the TF for some reason - I do have a Rules file, so not sure why.

Super happy with the purchase - next project is to see if I can get Hulu working :) I know there's some hackery out there.

Thanks everybody for being so welcoming!

I liked Prime a lot, and Roach (the dev) is a good guy...but...

Revolver 2.5 is waaay slicker, smoother and faster (even though the dev is an ass...). It's even got a cool little Honeycomb app - Revolver Parts (from the Market) that keeps it updated and keeps you aware of any mods, tweaks, kernels, etc, automatically!! And, there's also an app (widget) for rebooting to recovery!

Use it with the Clemsyn Kernel #10, OverClocked to 1504 (with SetCPU) and the V6 Supercharger script.

I think this is the location of the V6:
Supercharger (it may be page 1 of this thread...)

Use script update8, and set it to Option 8, and you'll FLY....very very fast and stable.

It probably won't take me long to try it! I was actually going to make it my first flash today instead of Prime, but Revolver's servers were down at the time and I just wanted to mess around :( Sounds nice though, and from what I hear, it does seem faster.

On the OC note, my TF doesn't seem to want to go beyond 1336 or so - it'll reboot. Still happy with that, but I thought most people had no problems going to 1500 and above.

Thanks for the tips :)

Sounds like the Evo...every one reacts differently to certain mods and roms... it could be your micro SD card, the way your memory is configured...could even be cause its so new...

After you install Rev 2.5, try it again. And if it still only OCs to 1336, that's still 33% overclocked!!

Did you try the Supercharger? That'll make a huge difference. It works on any android platform, too. I use it on my Evo, on my son's Optimus, my brother on his Droid....etc...

I'll run it! I use it on my X :) Which option do you go with? I went with 8 on the phone usually.

The Evo 4G seems to run best with Option 2. No reboots and it really smooths out transitions, etc. I don't know how the Droid's memory is configured, so can't really tell you what'll work.

On the Transformer, however, lots of trial and error has shown Option 8 to be absolutely perfect.

Clemsyn Kernel 12 is out now on the XDA forums. I don't think it is in Parts yet.

I installed 12 yesterday and it seems to be even smoother than 10. I have my TF at 1.544 now and I think I can probably run it higher but I'd rather stay on the safe side.
post it Post It POST IT!!!!

(It isn't in Parts yet).

I've been running C10 oc'd to 1.504 flawlessly...C12 should be awesome!!

Ah. I posted the link to thread just in case it wasn't approved of to just link the file.
Wow, I can see why he skipped v11...this is a major revision!!

My big test of a kernel is how fast my gallery (192 HD pics) loads and scrolls... It's instantaneous on v12, noticeably faster than v10, which I didn't think possible!!

Thanks again for the heads up and link...

Quick question: What do you guys use for your minimum clock speed when OCing?
312...and it seems to come out of sleep mode quite a bit faster with no noticeable battery hit. :androidwink:

Has anyone figured out how to add sound to a Transformer boot animation yet?

:erm (1):
