Re: Google Pay = Google Play
Here's a tip for rooting your Asus,
If it's anything like the Acer A700 then putting Cyanogenmod on it is an interesting journey of discovery.
For the A700 if you updated the firmware to root it you have to get all the original firmwares (from xda-developers and elsewhere on the net, I finished up with about 15 roms) and apply them in the correct order (starting with the French version of all things) till you get to the version that can be rooted.
You have to be a right tenacious bastard to keep at it but I'm the sort of person that hates to be beaten by computers and will happily spend many hours bashing away till I get something to work.
