Hi, Im really hoping some kind soul will help me out

I have unlocked the tf701t with asus unlock tool. When I boot with "adb reboot bootloader" and choose RCK I first get a normal android avatar but then the android is lying down with a red triangle and nothing happens.

All tutorials I have found is based on flashing root/recovery through fastboot. But I cant get fastboot to work, or boot to the recovery.

I have rooted and flashed CM on like 10 different phones so Im not a complete noob but for some reason I cant seem to find what I am doing wrong with the tf701t.

I am on 1WW_epad-10.26.1.18-20131217

Or is the screen with "RCK", Android and "Wipe Data" the fastboot screen?

Really hope You guys can help me out,

You need to update your bootloader with the official ASUS update first. Then you can continue. The CW recovery and the custom roms only work on the most update bootloader (which I think is .28 I cant check right now)
The screen that you are on after adb reboot bootloader is fast boot. selecting RCK is recovery. As you have the official recovery that's all there is is the lying android.

Boot loader is the part where RCK, Android,WipeData buttons are. Pressing RCK will take u to the recovery. The android lying with red triangle is the stock Asus recovery. If u r trying to install custom ROM, u must first get a custom recovery, so far only CWM recovery works. Then u can install the ROM zip file through the CWM recovery easily. But before getting CWM 4.7, make sure ur on the latest firmware. 10.26.1.18 I believe it is.

THANKS guys, it was exactly like you said.
I was an a firmwire with the nr: 10.26.1.18 but not the latest "10.26.1.18".
So after updating with Asus firmwire fastboot was working for me and everything went smoothly.
Superhighly appreciated that you took the time to help me out, you guys just made my day
