Question PLEASE HELP - Stuck in Loading

Hi guys,

I need help. My kid's Asus TF300T suddenly got stuck at the loading process. I turn it on, and it keeps loading and then reboot itself and kept loading again. This keeps going forever.

The bootloader is unlocked and I had a custom ROM on it, though I don't remember what it is.

I am still able to enter recovery (TWRP 2.4.4.0) while pressing the vol - and Power buttons.

But what else can I do? How do I get the tablet to work again?

Thanks so much.

I'm assuming that "loading" means that the boot animation is still working, but not going into Android at the end of it.

You can first try clearing the cache in TWRP: Go to the WIPE category and only select Dalvik Cache and Cache and wipe those. Reboot and see if anything changed.

If that doesn't work, then you can try factory resetting, but this will erase all data not backed up on the tablet. Do NOT wipe data from the fastboot menu. Only factory reset from within TWRP.

Yes, that's correct. It's at the boot animation and never get into Android.

I tried to wipe Cache and Dalvnik but that didn't help.

I also just tried Factory Reset, and it did not help either.

Is there anything else I can do? I can try to flash the ROM again, but I just don't remember which ROM I had on it.

Before you enter TWRP, the bootloader information appears in the top left corner of your screen. Which bootloader version are you on and what does the boot animation say/look like?

It says:

Key driver not found... Booting OS
Android cardhu-user bootloader <1.00 e> released by 'US_epad-10.6.1.8-20130225" A03

Starting Fastboot USB download protocol.


Then I had the option to select RCK - Android - Wipe Data

When I selected RCK, it brings me to TWRP.

The boot animation has the word ANDROID flashing from left to right. It probably was a custom boot animation.

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks

So what I would do is first flash an updated Stock ROM via fastboot: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1697227
Flash the "ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T Firmware: V10.6.1.27.5" for your region. Then it will reset.

Then using fastboot, you can follow this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...79&postcount=7

And you should be up and running with a new CM11 ROM.

Thank you. And with fastboot, I don't need to flash the necessary TWRP?

Well if you install everything by fastboot, you don't need TWRP. But if something goes wrong and a computer isn't nearby or stops working, having an onboard recovery is essential.

Hopefully, this will be the last question.

Before I use fastboot, should I power up the tablet with the Vol- & Power and then go into RCK mode?

And I don't see a link to download this from that thread.
