I tried to update my rooted TF using a repacked update.zip file (the
one with all the patch files in it), but it kept failing on checking of the
existing APK hashes. Not sure why, but I got around it by doing a clean install
of, manually applying the patch, then taking all of the changed
(between and .11) files and packing them up in a zip file with an
updater-script file.

You should be able to apply this to any US version
TF (rooted or stock as long as you have CWR) and bring everything up-to-date
without losing root or any of your other install modules, system APKs,

Make sure you back up first, as this is something I quickly threw
together and has not been properly vetted. If you find a problem, let me know
and I’ll try to get it fixed and updated ASAP.

You can also download this
ZIP and just take out any APKs you are interested in (the google video APK seems
to be popular for example).
