How to manage system images for Asus Eee Pad Transformer?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hopefully this is possible. We just bought a refurbished Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 for work so we have some physical hardware to test on (we'll be doing Android development this year biggrin.gif).

It shipped with Android version 3.2 installed. Is there a way I can make a complete system image and back it up to a Windows 7 PC? That way I have something to return to if we totally destroy its file system somehow. Also I'd like to update it to version 4.0 but I want to be able to roll back for testing purposes so we can support and test different versions. So basically I'm looking for a method or application to make a complete system image (like a ROM or something) and swap them out for different ones.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not technical enough to answer with your real question, but a general snippet you may not know is that 4.0 rolls out for the original transformer mid February - will be over the air. Sorry if this is irrelevant to your needs!

if your testing apps id bump it up to current fw (3.2.1) and root it. once rooted install cwm recovery and make a back up. these backups are stored on the microsd under clockworkmod/backup/dateandtime/
you can then pull a copy of those to the computer for redundancy.

as for 4.0 it hasnt offcially rolled out yet and there are some ports but to my knowledge most still have their fair share of bugs and arent functional as of now.

rooting was fairly easy. let me know if you need help with rooting
