    If you have custom recovery, put a rom and gapps if necessary on a microsd card, finish wiping with a factory reset, cache and dalvik wipe in custom recovery, and flash the rom. You'll lose everything, but it should work again.

    You might have to mount it under the mounts and storage option first.
    It should be labeled as external_sd or something similar.
  7. Theres no ex-sd option

    Are roms normally flashed from the sdcard on this device? If so, could it be that the card is just empty so it's not showing any zips as items to possibly flash? Do you have a card reader you can use to place a rom onto the card, then re-insert into the device?

    And just to be sure, are you familiar with flashing roms from inside recovery or do you typically use other means to do so? The method for cwr is to wipe data/cache/dalvik and then:

    install zip from sdcard > choose zip from sdcard

    ...and then you can navigate to the sd contents and pick whatever rom (zip) you want to flash. Are you saying you've done that and there's no sdcard to access? Just wanting to make sure we're on the same page.

    It looks like Iowa has this covered, but I just wanted to point out that as much information that you can relay to us will help and make this faster, even if you think it might not help. Keep your chin up, you came to the right place and Iowa is very knowledgeable. Goodluck!

    Hopefully their CWM is functioning correctly. There have been a lot of people with issues running CWM on our tablet. Not picking up the sd card was one of those issues. I had an issue right after flashing CWM and went straight to TWRP. Hopefully they can get the tablet to read the card.



    To Blacklablelive, if you can save your tablet w/o sending to the factory. I highly recommend flashing TWRP once you get it stable.

    Do you know if there's a twrp img file available for this device that can be fastboot flashed if it comes to that? I can't seem to locate anything on their website but maybe it's out of date or I'm not looking in the right place.

    Here you go. This is for the TF300T and TG. I used fastboot to flash the blob from this site. There is one for ICS and JB.

    Here is a link for SDK w/ fastboot if needed.

    Thanks man and jump right in here if you are available. You know way more about this device that any of us. :D

    Have you used the sdk on this device before? Any special adb/fastboot drivers required and if so where to get them? I read in THIS thread that the fastboot devices command doesn't output a value. Does this ring a bell with you?

    @Blacklablelive: Do you have a machine that runs Windows, Linux, other?

    Are you running Windows (if so which one), Linux or Mac? This will help us get you set up.

    We should be able to get you to fastboot a recovery or the entire system onto your tablet but we need a little back ground to get you set up.

    In order to use fastboot, you're going to need the ASUS ADB/Fastboot drivers found here. Even though it says it's for the 201, they are good for any TF model and I use them for my TF700.

    ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201

    The problem is that they aren't in exe form and have to be installed manually through the device manager. Download the zip file, and unzip them to an easy to find place. Then open up the device manager, and plug the tablet into the computer in fastboot mode. It should pop up as an unknown device, probably as Android 1.0 or something like that. Right click it and click update software. Navigate to the place you unziped the drivers to and click ok. It should install the drivers.

    After the drivers are installed, you can install the Android sdk provided earlier. You will want to know where it installs to because you will have to navigate to that place to use the fastboot command.
    In the command prompt, use the command "cd C:/ " except type the actual path as to where the fastboot file is located in the sdk. Make sure the TWRP file is in the same folder, and then use the command "fastboot flash recovery 'twrp.img'" or what ever the file name for twrp is. after that you should be able to boot into twrp and flash the rom from the sd card.

    ^^Cool. I was concerned with the bootloader interface driver. That's perfect.

    Once the driver issue is cleared, I think I can save you some time on the sdk install. Try this instead of downloading the full blown sdk:

    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/7460142/android-sdk-windows.zip

    Unzip contents to the root of your computer's C drive. Once you have the adb/fastboot driver installed from jhawkkw's instructs, plug in your tab to the pc via usb cable and go into clockwork. Don't choose any options in there, just let it sit there with all the options showing.

    Now open a command prompt on your PC. Enter the following commands:

    cd c:\ android-sdk-windows\platform-tools

    then...

    adb devices

    Now let us know if it output your tabs serial #. That should give us a clue as to whether fastboot is going to work.
