By "yesterday", I mean before the tablet hung and I had to force reboot it when this problem started.

I unlocked the bootloader originally when I first got the tablet back in July using "fastboot oem unlock". Now, when I try to unlock the bootloader it hangs while the cmd line says "erasing userdata".

I'd still like some help if anyone has any ideas.

i use it this morning as usual and turn in off like every day i don't know what causes this boot loop.

Any help will be appreciated.

Can you boot into stock recovery? Without flashing a stock rom or the system image the only thing I can think of would be to do a factory reset. It sucks but it is sometimes necessary. If you are stuck in a boot loop long press the power button to force a reboot, as soon as the screen turns off press the volume down button that will get you to the bootloader. Or if the device is off press and hold both the power button and volume down button to get to the bootloader. Choose recovery with the volume button then press the power button. You should see android laying down with exclamation mark. Press and hold the power button and while holding the power button press and release the volume up button. Stock recovery! Use the volume button to select "wipe data/factory reset" then press power button. If that doesn't take care of it download the factory image and extract, if running 4.4.2 wifi version you should see ;
bootloader-flo-flo-04.02.img
flash-all.bat
flash-all.sh
flash-base.sh
image-razor-kot49h.zip
if you double click the "flash-all.bat" with the device already at the bootloader that will flash the complete image including userdata which wipes the device. You can also open flash-all.bat with notepad and remove -w from the script and it should not flash the userdata.img. Or... you could extract all of the images from the "image-razor-kot49h.zip" and flash them seperately with fastboot, whatever images you try to flash need to be in the same folder as fastboot.exe (platform-tools) so you do have multiple options as long as there is no hardware issue that is causing the reboot. Hope this helps!

Thanks, but sadly this doesn't help me. I'm perfectly happy to do a factory reset at this point, but selecting "Recovery mode" from the bootloader just hangs again at the "Google" logo.

I attempted flashing stock images, but even though my tablet was absolutely unlocked before this happened, "fastboot flash ..." now says "Bootloader is locked." It feels as if whatever damaged the system software also damaged the storage where locked/unlocked is stored.

I feel as if there is nothing to do at this point other than contact Asus about hardware service. Sigh.

Sorry to hear that! I don't remember ever hearing being able to get into the bootloader but not into recovery from there. Your probably right about having to do doing an RMA. If it's any consolation I had a good experience with ASUS when I had to RMA my 1st gen N7 32GB after the speakers went bad.

I'm glad to hear you had a good experience with ASUS support. I have an RMA and am sending it to them. Thanks for your help.
