You need to download and run the Unlock.apk from Asus' website otherwise you won't be able to flash a custom recovery.

I've heard from other people that it only works on Jelly Bean so you might need to install Jelly Bean and then install and unlock your device.

Primary Phone: Asus Padfone 2 32 Gb + Padfone Station
ROM: My Custom ROM
MODS: Animation Framework Mod, Circular Battery Mod

OMG after all the above i flashed to the stock recovery you sent me Lindenburg and my phone was working fine on stockrom
decided to revert to jellybean in a later stadium to unlock the boot loader.

so far no problem
then this morning i got a ota system update from asus
did not think there would be any problems so i pressed yes for update

now i am all the way back to the "invalid kernel!!!" message again
tryed to flash the recovery image (posted by you befor)
i now get the message
writing 'recovery'...
FAILED (remote: image is not a boot image)

for the record i cant get into recovery mode (vol- and power)
i can only get in CSC mode (vol+ and power)
and is still renamed

any help on how to fix this would be apriciated

then i get this
C:\Program Files\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>fastboot update c:\asus\
archive does not contain 'android-info.txt'
archive does not contain 'android-product.txt'
error: update package has no android-info.txt or android-product.txt
