today I saw that there is a firmware update available from ASUS 188.8.131.52 and decided to install it.
I made a backup with CWM and then ran OTA ROOT Keeper to backup my root, then ran the update. My tablet has been restarted and stucked at CWM menu screen.
I tried to make a restore but after it finished and I choose the option in CWM "reboot system now" the tablet has been restarted and entered again in CWM menu.
Please HELP !!!
Couple of things. You are new so, we'll give you that but there are a few things wrong here.
First you cannot receive the OTA with a custome recovery like CWM. You'll need to go the the Epic Noob Guide and check out how to install the Stock Recovery.
Second, you used OTA Rootkeeper. Good job with that bc with the ICS .21 they closed the exploit to allow Root access, so you lose root, it is gone (for now) unless you are NVflash-able.
Third, CWM 184.108.40.206 is an bad recovery and will throw you into a recovery loop, which you are in now. There is a fix for it either in the General or Q&A section. It has since been fixed but since you are in the middle of utter chaos, you'll need to read that thread to find out how. It's OP is updated frequently, so there shoudl be no problem.
