If not, will it allow fastboot erase cache?

What version of TWRP are you using, and why is your bootloader locked with TWRP installed? Did you relock it?

I'm using TWRP 2.6.3.1.

I can kind of flash the stock image back. I don't think it really works though. I checked the driver under device manager. It says it is for a nexus 4.. I downloaded and installed the google driver from their site. Is there a different one I should be using?

I did relock the bootloader. I thought I had flashed back the google stock image just fine, but apparantly not. What happened was randomly yesterday the tablet was stuck at the google boot screen. I went in to recovery and it said there was no OS installed. So I figured the best thing to do was the return it to stock. It is weird because it just hangs at certain commands. Like fastboot oem unlock or fastboot format etc.... Could it be a driver thing? The tablet responds to other commands though. :/

You can try to uninstall the drivers (also tick the box in the dialog that pops up). Scan for new hardware, and keep deleting drivers until you can't anymore. Then grab the latest ones from my signature, if you didn't have them already. Mine shows up as Android Bootloader Interface. Also, make sure you're using USB 2.0 ports.

yeah, I tried that. I feel like I have tried everything... I'm sure if I didn't relock the bootloader things would be different. Well, I'm going to see if JTag could be able to repair it. for 50 bucks it would be worth it. Thanks for all your help though!
