Maybe you could explain where to see the build date.
As far as I know its in the serial number after the characters. But in my case (and maybe others) I canīt see a date in 160074 .

Default hard bricked tf701t

Dear lpdunwell,

I have a bricked tf701, only asus logo available and loopboot, fastboot menu is broken as well. Only APX mode working, but I could not find appropriate nvflash for my pad (s I see there is no nvflash currently available for my tab)

In your explanation about bricked device, you wrote that there is possibility to recover tf701?

Please describe what nvflash version should I use to succeed?

Thanks in advance,
stream1313

Sorry mate we don't have nvflash and it is too late for you now anyway If you only have access to APX you are hard bricked. Best to sell it for parts and move on.... Or if you want to revive it send it to Asus to fix at a cost or source a replacement mainboard and do it yourself.

Hi man.. Why do you think I have to forget about my toy.. It was my Christmas (New Year in Tbilisi, Georgia, opposite planet side) present to myself But it is all the lyric only
Pls explain - do you really think that for ex., several weeks / months later, smb will create the nvflash or any similar SW which will be able to fix my problem? Actually I believe that until all electronic components are ok, device is not "dead" forever... Why you so pessimistic exactly for 701 transformer tab? Pls if you have time reply me

Kind regards,
Stan

the way nv flash works is you need to flash the special bootloader to extract your device blobs and device specific keys. As you haven't been able to do it and you CANNOT do it once you have bricked you will have no chance. How are you going to flash a bootloader that you need fastboot for?

Sorry to bring bad news but if you only have APX with no saved nv flash files (which is not yet avail for our device) then you currently have 0% chance of recovering.

Thanks a lot for reply (as well as for my another, initial thread reply) I have only CWM backup of my tab, on the MD card. But I do not know, does this backup contain all needed stuff? At list, I did not found there saved nv flash or blob files. Just "blobgenerator" (462Kb) and "blobtester" (370Kb), also some system files with "nv" in the name. But I do not have Idea, does CWM saving the low level loader files, at list I was not able to recognize them there...

my apologize for too many questions as well as for my poor English - it is not my native lang

Kind regards,
Stan

No having CWM backups saved won't help you as you have no way of getting to the bootloader which would then be used to open the recovery so you could restore. WIthout a working bootloader you can't proceed. NV Flash uses APX mode to restore the blobs via the wheelie binary. You haven't captured the blobs to restore and as they are encrypted to your device you can't use anyone elses.

It's a new main board or nothing I'm afraid.

I see, everything is clear. Thanks for your time man. But I beleive that Asus has some kind of "backdoor" for such cases, for internal usage, of course. Asus manifest about "mainboard replacement" probably just for business, normally must be some way to crack this protection. I hope somebody from Asus will share some useful info or even software for public usage... Maybe it's my dreams only, I'm realistic (I'm working as IT/IS/GSM/WCDMA, but I'm so far from programming..)

Again, thank you. Pls notify me in case of any news about K00C hack
