hi guys i just tried to flash the padfone ... apparently it says unable to operate the zip file or something ... then it goes reboot .. and now stuck at the asus logo with the spinning thing below ... please advise ...
Reboot into safety mood by holding the volume down button then the power button for like 3 seconds, from there do a factory restart. The next time you flash make sure the power adapter is plugged in as well before flashing the firmware, especially from the Starhub to TW_A68-9.8.8.55 firmware.

You mean you wan to flash WWE over TW?

Yes you can.. why not?

But i think you need to flash twice.
The first time to re-partition .

The second time for the real flash

Newbie to Android here.

Quick question. My PadFone android version is 4.0.4

I believe it's not the latest. Could someone advise me on the steps to update to the latest version?

Many thanx.

U can apply the TW firmware instead of waiting for the star hub one.

Anyone facing issues with the tablet buttons not working after flashing the TW firmware? It's quite bad. The buttons simply don't work anymore

No issue with the tablet, but I can't get my phone to output video signals via MHL though... Not sure if the fault lies in the MHL adapter or my phone...

i tot 4.1.1 oredi rolled out...
It is rolled out for TW, HK, WWE, RU..
Left Starhub ( singapore) firmware not rolled out yet.

The information provided earlier was not accurate.
You can flash original jelly bean firmware from Asus without root.

ASUS - Mobile- ASUS PadFone 2

Of cos for now you have to flash other country's firmware.

Personally i am on TW 10.4.7.10.

TW firmware always get the latest and fastest updates.

A word of caution though, once you flash other firmwares, you will not be able to get OTA updates, but you can update it manually.

A few pages back i posted a step by step guide.

For change of SKU to TW firmware, you might need to flash twice.

first time for re-partition. ( still on old firmware)
Second time for the replacement of /system files ( actual flash )

yes but i would prefer it to be in the taskbar on top instead of a vague battery icon. haha. Thanks anyway.
Unfortunately the only way is either custom ROMs or third party App.
CyanogenMod 10 has this functionality built in.
Otherwise, you can use an App called Battery Widget. A quiet app that sits in the taskbar showing the battery level. Unfortunately it is only able to report the phone battery level and not the PadStation.
