I have tried several methods to flash the tablet using:
- EASY FLASHER
- ONE CLICK RECOVERY
- ADB PUSH
The recurring issue that I seem to be encountering using these methods is that my PC recognizes the tablet in APX mode (I have tried both naked & usbpcdrivers) but the utility software does not. When I boot into recovery mode ADB recognizes my device but does not in APX mode. When I run NVFLASH while in APX mode my tablet gets disconnected from the PC and I receive a USB write error from NVFLASH.
Prior to the failure I successfully rooted my device using Baidu Root. At this point I don't even know how to power off the device as the only way to exit the loop is to boot into recovery or APX mode.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as my experience with these matters are limited.
First recommendation, stay away from ROM Manager, our device doesn't like it. You need to try and uninstall all usb drivers associated with tf101 and start over. I used the drivers from BRK's v.8 Tool Kit. You may need to find some newer adb files to swap out with his, but try first. To clean all the drivers may require connecting the tab to pc in different modes to even see some of the drivers, but see what's in Programs & Features - Remove function in Windows. You will also need the stock ROM downloaded from Asus site before you start. If you can get into recovery, then you should have an option in there to power off the device. If you get that far, then his tool has the nvflash pieces to start from scratch and get rooted and install an older custom recovery. Go with the CWM version there and, ultimately, change it out to the latest TWRP as soon as possible. Getting the drivers for Windows working is the hardest part, assuming everything else works. Conflicting USB drivers will be nothing but headaches, as you've found out.
