[ROM]★★[4.2.1][CROMi-Xenogenesis 4.7.0][ODEX/DEODEX][Jul 20]★★


: 17



Instructions here




If you are currently unlocked and are coming from the updated 4.2.1 / Asus Stock ROM then you will need to flash a custom recovery like TWRP:


If you are already rooted then use goomanager to install the latest TWRP via the menu and install open script


Download the Install Recovery package below, extract it somewhere and run the Scott's TF700T Recovery Install Tool.bat file whilst your Tablet is connected to your Windows PC.

It should install TWRP for you.

Install Recovery Tool DOWNLOAD

STEP 2 TF700 ONLY – I have a custom recovery installed but not the latest bootloader

If you are currently unlocked and on a JB 4.1.1/ based custom rom like CleanROM Inheritance 3.x and have a custom recovery installed:

I recommend you install the appropriate Bootloader Recovery package below as the safest route to upgrade to CROMi-X. This can be flashed from any custom recovery

TF700 World Wide WW SKU Users: WW Bootloader and TWRP DOWNLOAD 1 WW Bootloader and TWRP DOWNLOAD 2

md5: 360f9b58318425eca0aadb1ebfaa25b6

TF700 North American US SKU Users: US Bootloader and TWRP DOWNLOAD 1 US Bootloader and TWRP DOWNLOAD 2

TF700 Taiwanese TW SKU Users: TW Bootloader and TWRP DOWNLOAD 1 TW Bootloader and TWRP DOWNLOAD 2

md5: 93f54b868d30412cdc66a60b14ac2b23


After flashing your device will reboot back into your normal ROM but you will be on the new bootloader and have TWRP installed

Now proceed to STEP 3

STEP 3 - TF700 / TF300 / TF201 - I'm on a 10.1.6.x Bootloader and have a compatible TWRP installed

Download the package below and save to your internal or external SD Card.

Boot to recovery (Power and Volume Down and hit Volume up on the RCK icon in the 10.6.1.x bootloader screen)

Make a Nandroid Back up of your current setup

Navigate back up to install

Choose the CROMi-Xenogensis zip file and follow the instructions


I recommend you do a full wipe if coming from another ROM. Choose Wipe – Factory in TWRP. Do not do a full wipe from the bootloader.

You can restore data from Titanium Backups but please do not restore system data or apps from a previous version or another ROM if you want a nice clean smooth upgrade experience.

Don't forget to do a Nandroid Backup first and give the ROM 10 mins to stabilise!
