Un-intentional brick??

Hello there!

I have a really serious problem with my TF300T. I had the newest bootloader installed with 4.4 enabled TWRP recovery. I had the 2014.01.07. CM 11 nightly installed and was running fine. I have seen, that there are some never releases so decided to update. I downloaded the newest nightly yesterday and pressed power button. Selected reboot and then selected Recovery.
And here comes the problem!
The tablet bricked himself! It did restart but got into a bootloop I cannot get through the Asus splashscreen. I tried POWER+VOLD DOWN, I cannot get into fastboot or recovery. The tablet keep rebooting, no boot to android either. I tried power off, no success. I tried the reset button. I removed battery, still the same.

As I have never done anything to the bootloader, I did not consider making NVFLASH backup, as it is a risky operation. Shame on me...

How could it happen????? Does cyanogenmod alter Bootloader partition to reboot into recovery??? What the hell??


Please help me somehow! I dont know what to do, I tried all I could! Maybe APX? or only Asus RMA??

yours,

No, sorry, you won't be able to use APX mode without have making the NvFlash backups beforehand.

Im not sure It only happened to a few people in addition to OP of this thread. Im not upgrading to be safe, but maybe the dev should look into it.

In theory, yes. But many people consider it easier to RMA it.
