Just place the downloaded firmware (UL-xxx.zip) into root folder on your internal storage or external sdcard. The system will automatically recognize it and asking do you want to flash it.

Just make sure you had the correct regional firmware (mine was WW)

Rename your downloaded firmware to K012_sdupdate.zip then copy to your MICROSD. Now you just have to go into droidboot mode.

Follow the step below to go into droidboot. (Start by turn off your device).
1. If you had never update to kitkat before, go into droidboot by holding VOL DOWN + POWER until droidboot menu is present.

2. If you have update to kitkat before (or currently on kitkat), boot into droidboot by holding VOL UP + POWER until menu is present.

Next step depend on menu that appear on your droidboot menu:
1. If you had SD UPDATE option presented on the MOST BELOW option, go on and select it. (Beware, you should choose SD UPDATE not SD DOWNLOAD)
2. If your menu doesnt show SD UPDATE, then you had to choose RECOVERY.

I think thats all to do, your device must have start the update process by now.

Flash fonepad firmware
It's very easy. Just put the downloaded zip file in the root of you internal memory and you will see a notification which says it has detected a new update file. Tap on it and install.

Good luck

Then you need to use ADB tools and fastboot. Before anything you need to download the attached files which contains ADB tools and intel usb drivers. Download the files and extract it somewhere . Go to "intelandroiddrvsetup1.1.5.zip" and install the drivers. Then Power off your tablet. Hold down the Volume + and Power and rlease at the Asus logo comes up. Now you will see the fastboot menu.
Connect your tablet to your PC. Now go to the folder you extracted the zip file. Press the Shift key and Right click somewhere in the folder. Choose "open command window here".
Then type this commands one by one and press Enter:
fastboot erase cache
fastboot erase system
fastboot erase userdata
Then you need you flash the a stock firmware. Download the appropriate firmware from Asus website. There are three .img files in the firmware zip file (fastboot.img, boot.img, splashscreen.img). Copy all these three files to the extracted folder. Now type the following command in the command window one by one:
fastboot flash fastboot fastboot.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash splashscreen splashscreen.img
The last step is that you should put the firmware zip file on your external SD card. Rename it to k012_sdupdate.zip
Now use the volume keys on you tablet to choose the Recovery (if you have updated to 4.4.2) or SD Update (if your android version was 4.3). Press the Power to choose it. The tablet will reboot and flash the firmware.

I mean before you had this problem. The fastboot menu is different for Android 4.3 and 4.4
I don't know if there is a custom ROM for this tablet or not!!!
