Default Unlocked Prime .21 without root - how to root and install CWM?

Hey.

I have send twice my Prime to RMA (weak gps,wifi , damaged keyboard and light bleeding). Before RMA my prime was rooted (firmware 15). After complited RMA my prime was fully wiped by asus and they instaled latest firmware (.21) on my tablet. Now I cant root that , I cant downgrade to 15 ->root 15 -> backup root via ota root keeper -> restore root at 21 with voodo - I cant do that becouse my prime was wiped and thats way I havent got protected su backup.

Now I got UNLOCKED Prime (by asus tool v6) becouse without "unlock" there is no way to root this device and install custom roms like aokp, cm9, eos etc. I cant live without root and custom roms ,my all smartphones are rooted with custom roms....my old tf101 was easy rootable and there was a amazing tool - Nvflash which was great and easy to use and flash any custom roms.There is any possibility to root this crappy UNLOCKED Prime? I wanna instal CWM but without root it isnt possible via rom menager. Any Ideas? Any solution?

THX

Sorry for my english

Oh right I had it too but I totally forgot it. Just flash cwm touch with fastboot. TWRP2 might work too but it wasn't out when I installed cwm so I don't know

Not possible to install that...

I used this solution:
http://teamw.in/project/twrp2/93

First way: Not possible becouse I havent got CWM to flash this zip.

Second way: Not possible to use, I got working ADB but I cant use this method without root -.
Code:
su

dd if=/sdcard/twrp.blob of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4
Cant use -> SU is req.

Third way:
Download - Recovery Image / Fastboot Method
Quote:
You will need adb and fastboot for this method. Download the above file. Turn off your device and boot to fastboot (power on while holding volume down, then select the usb icon and hit volume up to confirm). The device will now be in fastboot mode. Plug the device into your computer. Run the following command via the command line:

fastboot -i 0x0b05 flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.1.2-tf201.img
Not possible to do that...Cant enter to this manu (Power+Vol Down and Vol up when text shows) ...

I got this.. :

What to do? How to activate this menu?
