Default Question: Unlock + Root etc... with Android 4.3?

Hi everybody!
I have recently bought a TF701 device and I'm really happy with it! But as all devices I have, I would like unlock and root the device and install a custom recovery for a custom rom. Ok, first step: unlock the tab with the app by asus... It's only working with android 4.2.2 and my tab runs 4.3 (updates in shop certainly). So I have tryied to "downgrade" using the asus 4.2.2 firmware.... but impossible, it can't downgrade the tab =(

So, how could I unlock my device? Did I make a mistake?
Moreover, I run 10.26.1.7 and would like upgrade to 10.26.1.18, so I have downloaded the World Wide firmware (T4Update.zip) on Asus website, put it on a uSD card and followed the instructions but I have an error in bootloader (a droid opened with a simple "error" message).

Thank you really much for your help, and sorry for my bad english =/

U download the zip file and unzip the file.
It should be UL-K00C-TW-10.26.1.18-user.zip (I live in Hong Kong , Taiwan version, yours should be US version)

1. Put the file to root level of SD card
2. Turn off the tablet
3. Hold the power key and down-volume
4. Use down-volume to Select middle icon and then press up-volume
5. After load into android system follow the simple instructions to upgrade

Hope it can help!
