CyanogenMod 10.0 (Android 4.1.2) on Asus Transformer TF101

As my tablet went slower and slower I decided to have a look for updates. Unfortunately there are no updates available that exceed Android 4.0.3 for my „old“ Asus Transformer tablet and there will not be any in the future. 🙁

So there was the only solution to look for alternative firmware. In my opinion there is only one choice when it comes to that: CyanogenMod

And luckily there is some firmware available for my tablet. It’s not the newest version (10.1 => Android 4.2.2) but it is version 10.0 with Android 4.1.2 wich is not too bad.

So what do you need?

So let’s go in medias res:

  1. Enable USB debugging on your device
  2. Connect device to USB
  3. Run 1-Click Transformer Root.bat
  4. Wait for some reboots
  5. Copy CyanogenMod and GApps zip files via Explorer to your SD card
  6. When it’s finished shut device down and boot to recovery (Volume down + Power followed by Volume up)
  7. Create Nandroid backup of your old stuff to SD card
  8. remove SD card
  9. Wipe Data / Factory reset
  10. Wipe Cache Partition
  11. Advanced > Wipe Dalvik Cache
  12. Mounts and Storage > format all except external SD
  13. Advanced > Reboot Recovery
  14. Insert SD card
  15. Install CyanogenMod zip
  16. Install
  17. Advanced > Fix Permissions
  18. Reboot
  19. SetUp your tablet again and install needed apps
  20. Be happy 😉

This should also work for other devices and CanogenMod.

For me the main issue is to choose the right version of GApps and to wipe the old data because of the AOSP keyboard issues.

I hope that helps! Have fun!
