  3. Hi Roger, there are no working rooting tutorials for your build number. When we get one, we will post it here.

  4. Glad to hear that. Let me know if you need anything else.

  5. Roger Fingle says:

    Ok, thanks a lot for answering!!

  6. Have a nice day Mr. Sathish .. I’m happy for this website and want according to your instructions to carry out its root K00E ME372CG and have free phablet .. I do not know whether it will lead me, but I’m sure if downloaded files will work. Thank you for the opportunity .. I’m sorry that I write through a translator because I can not English. Greetings from Czech republic Vasek

  7. Hi Vasek,

    Thanks for taking time to comment on my website. I am sure that the rooting tutorial will work. Just follow it properly.

  8. thanks a lot for the tutorial 🙂

  9. You are most welcome.

  10. i,ve updated my me372cg to build no 6.4.4(released 22/9/2014)!can u please upload the root.zip file for me???

  11. Anything for Build Number 6.4.4??

  12. Nope, I don’t have anything right now.

  13. How Can i install Windows 8 on my ASUS Fonepad 7?
    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance

  14. Hi Ankit,

    I am not sure it’s possible to install Windows 8 on ASUS Fonepad 7. But i will look for a way.

  15. hesam 666 says:

    Hi, I want to ask whether the fonepad 7 is running Linux on
    asus tablets?
    LINE ID : hq666

  16. I had a Fonepad 7 with stock android 4.2.2 and i updated it to 4.4.2 recently. But on updating the tablet the floating apps like video player, calculator etc are no more available. Will downgarding to android 4.3 as per your steps, bring back the floating apps? If yes can I use root package 5.2.5?

  17. Hi there,

    Upgrading to new Android version won’t remove the floating apps. It would have been caused by something else. Did you use a Stock ROM firmware or custom firmware for upgrading to Android 4.4.2?

  18. Hi,

    I can’t get your query clearly. Can you elaborate again?

  19. I am not sure. I did a check for updates from my tablet and it prompted that you can upgrade to 4.4.2 kitkat. I just installed that one itself along with the new build version.

  20. Alright. This is a stock firmware update. Seems the company took those floating apps out of the new update.

  21. Thqnks for your replies.
    I had posted a complaint in the Asus website. They replied that doing a factory reset will make my tablet as one which i had bought and then do a system update. Will a factory reset solve the problem? Can i downgrade as per your method?

  22. I think doing a factory reset will solve your issue. You don’t need to use this method.

  23. i tried rooting my asus m3272cg as per your guidelines. wanted to know, after enetring the command, fastboot flash update rootx.x.x.zip.. does it show, “waiting for device” and takes how long to root? and also wanted to know, whether we have to enter the punctuation ” before flashboot? as as shown by you..

  24. Don’t enter the punctuations. You have to enter the text and numbers after the punctuation.
