Re: Cuberoot

Late response I know, but I had the same issue. Switch over to using the Cydia Impactor instead and you will have no further problems (unless you want to gte future OTA updates that is ....). http://www.gtvhacker.com/index.php/Exploiting_Key_Signing_for_Root Now that I understand how OTA's are block...

Re: Should I purchase the Asus Cube?

After many issues I finally updated to the Cube V2 and I am very happy with it thus far. So anyone interested - make sure you get the V2 device. My V1 was considerably slower, laggier, etc. Of course this may have been due to me screwing with it and disbaling OTA updates. See my Topic under the "How...

Re: How can I reverse Cuberoot's OTA blocking???

It appears I ordered the debug cable from the wrong place on Amazon - it's on it's way and shipped but expected delivery is next month! Seems to have been shipped with international post, no tracking available. The other 3 items I ordered that day all showed up already. So I am ordering from a diffe...

Re: How can I reverse Cuberoot's OTA blocking???

Doing some research I find I was smart in not just probing around the UART without knowing some details. It appears you have to have that converter built into the cable or you will cook the chip in the android device - there is voltage level shifting that must go on: To connect computer to tablet UA...

Re: How can I reverse Cuberoot's OTA blocking???

Initial thoughts: after just spending maybe 20mins getting the new unit setup I can say it's much faster than my V1 ever was. I dunno if it's this latest firmware or what but it seems like 99% of the lag I am used to is not here. Had to do a firmware update on first boot - hell it came up as an Asus...

Re: How can I reverse Cuberoot's OTA blocking???

OK, well still no luck - I am stuck in Custom Recovery hell - my V1 Cube only boots to recovery, does nothing more. I have no adb access as it isn't booting so I am stuck here. Not having much luck finding info on how to connect to the UART pins either. I have a USB to serial adapter here but not su...

Re: How can I reverse Cuberoot's OTA blocking???

Well I got the custom recovery installed just fine. Works great too. Only have one problem now - I can only access the recovery, cant boot into android and I am not sure why. I was fine until I tried to install the Asus update from recovery - before that it would boot normally and only go to recover...

Re: How can I reverse Cuberoot's OTA blocking???

Ok putting the update into /sdcard directory, naming it update.zip did not work - rebooted and it didn't update. I then tried the very same thing but put the file in the root of an externa USB drive and plugged it in - still no update. Gave up for the night and went to bed. Today I started to google...

How can I reverse Cuberoot's OTA blocking???

OK, have had my Cube for a long time now - not really happy with it at all, but there have been several updates released now that likely will make me a bit happier if I could install them! Due to using Cuberoot the day I opened the box, I cannot get any updates. It tries but the download fails each ...

Cube is Junk

OK, I have had this thing for nearly a year now and the best I can say for it is that at least it's not an Apple device! I am a long time supporter of Asus products so I jumped on the Cube as soon as it was available - after using it daily all this time I will honestly say this is the worst piece of...
