Hey guys, I have a TFP running AOKP Milestone 6 and has NVFlash installed. My rear camera is messed up (all it shows is a green "fuzzy/snowy" screen in the preview screen) and I need to return it to Asus for a replacement. Could someone walk me through the whole un-NVFlashing/Unrooting/Locking process? I looked around and couldn't find any help...
TIA

You can't even with NVflash. We don't have true NVflash. We have a modified bootloader allowing for NVflash. There's a difference. Bottom Line: once you unlocked, you irrevocably broke your warranty with Asus. In fact, the minute you unlocked using the unlock tool, it sent information to Asus (serial number) stating as much. Sorry but you're out of luck. If you feel it needs to be fixed, you're on your own (money wise).

asus may say that you are out of warranty but you arent... hardware issues should and will be fixed.
customers rights in most countries overrule whatever you agreed with in the unlocking process. at least in european countries and usa , asus knows this of course.
got my unlocked device repaired twice now .....

if you brick your device its a different story off course....

just flash a near-stock rom like prime evil to be sure its hardware issue and rma after .

look at this btw :o

I've never heard of anybody on forums receiving warranty service for their unlocked Prime. Even Gary, from Asus, has stated as much. I'm not trying to call you a liar but just find what you're stating hard to believe.

How exactly have you gotten Asus to honor your warranty since you willingly and freely voided it by unlocking your Prime?

I've seen that thread before but thought it had to do with exchanging the Prime for an Infinity NOT receiving warranty service for an unlocked Prime?

No. If you read some of the latest replies, they say that they have taken in their rooted and unlocked primes and gotten a different tab (galaxy 10.1, infinity, etc.).

OK. Gotcha. So, you are thinking of getting another Tab then? Hmmmm...it is an interesting option. Good luck, man. Hope things work out for you! :)

as far as i know everyone get their unlocked primes repaired as long as its obvious that its a hardware issue.

as said before: you have warranty by law! if asus denies on repairing hw issues you can sue them...


how i did it? just rma it , normal process
