Exclamation [Q] Stuck w/ No recov access or OS access

Hello, anyone reading this with some knowledge would definitely help. I was running Carbon Rom
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2354159

and I wanted to switch up to the CM11 Rom. So I went to the page and downloaded

TWRP 4.4.0 Compatible recovery: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2595531

Me being my dumb self decided it sounded like a great idea to use "Flashify" for some reason. So I made a recovery.img back up and a kernel back up. Then before flashing I went into my recovery and made a nandroid back up. Rebooted into carbon rom and went to flashify and flashed the new 4.4.0 TWRP.

Went to reboot and load into the new recovery this morning and was hoping it would stick so I could just flash CM11.


Sadly it didn't.
I have been searching all over XDA and the transformerprime forums to see if there was a way to flash is using fastboot. I am very neewbish on fastboot. I installed Android SDK and the drivers. The tab will go into APX mode (4 options - RCK - OS - USB - WipeData) and will be recongnized by my desktop (Win7 x64).

Bootloader= US_epad-10.4.2.15-20120917

Any help would be great. Currently I'm using a paperweight... I can tell it is alright, I'm just stuck in using fastboot to retrieve a new recovery.
I am trying NOT to wipe the whole device. I have some Extremely important documents on there for legal purposes. If I could retrieve those then it would be alright to wipe.

Thanks in advance! If not I'll have to use a fancy paper weight..

Also when I select recovery (RCK) it says "Booting Recovery Kernel image" and hangs there.

With fastboot, the command to flash recovery should be

fastboot -i 0x0b05 flash recovery recovery-filename.blob

Unless you have the androidroot bootloader, in which case you need the img and not the blob.
