bricked and unbricked my tf201 bootloader
I did bunch of searching and couldnt find a 100% answer to my question.
so i was on jellybean 4.3.1 and wanted to upgrade to cm 4.4 kitkat. i upgraded to twrp 126.96.36.199 and was ready to go
started to delete everything via twrp (data/sys/etc)
this is where it got weird. i tried to factory reset to reformat the data partion. it just got stuck on the formatting data screen with
the moving bar....stuck on that for 20-30 minutes. so i hard reset it and tried again.
eventually crap hit the fan and i got a bootloader mismatch error message.....couldnt do anything..no recovery no fastboot.
lucky for me i had my nvflash from back when i was still on ICS.
i nvflashed back to life, jellybean 4.1.1 but i see that i lost my unlocked bootloader and i also cant use the asus unlock tool. i can not
install any custom recovery so i cant play around with 4.4
sorry for the long story but anyway i can get my bootloader unlocked again to get a custom recovery on there? i think asus unlock tool shows that my tablet's serial or mac address was already unlocked and wont let me do it again....i tried to email them but waiting for a response.
or can i nvflash back to the ICS unmodified rom and somehow unlock the bootloader there?
