2. Install the Android SDK (that you can have adb and fastboot installed) - (follow this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2302780 )
3. Boot the tablet while pressing all the HW buttons (VOL+ , VOL - , POWER Button) - I've read somewhere from @Hashcode that the original firmware has code to boot into fastboot while pressing all the buttons without the need of a "special" fastboot cable.
4. Check the fastboot commands and see if recognizes it.
Will definitely try tomorrow, only difference being I'll be in arch rather than ubuntu, though that shouldn't be a big enough difference to pose a problem. I'll keep you updated with how it goes. Thanks!

Default Return?

Why don't you just try to give the device back? I'm pretty certain other people have done it.

That it really matters if you get it to recognize it or not the device will not accept through fast boot unless it is unlocked from what I understand. What good is fastboot if we don't have any fastboot files in any public way at least anyway that I know. The fastboot commands will work from what I have read but you cannot flash any bin files or any system files. Until it is unlocked and Hashcode says once unlocked everything flashes fine .
Besides he should be working with this thread it has fixed several people with the same problem http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2588608 not specifically just OP but there is very in-depth discussion throughout the thread with useful information
