Hi!

So today I wanted to flash a recovery and a SlimKat ROM on my TF-300T. 5 hours later I am REALLY pissed right now! My Transformer is recognized from Win 7 but not via fastboot or EzFlasher. I've done so far:

TF-300T
-latest firmware from ASUS

Fastboot
-Asus Unlocker V8
-Fastboot package
-latest USB drivers
-different USB ports
Under Win7 the Transformer is apperaring correctly in the device manager, the USB drivers from the Android SDK kit are the same tha were automaticly installed. With the command promt "fastboot devices" nothing appears

EzFlasher
-again latest USB-Drivers
-USB debugging mode activated
As seen above my transformer is already unlocked. And the USB debugging box is checked. Still EzFlasher is complaining about exactly these two things, see the screenshot...


Soooooo, I'm really close to break something or smash that stupid thing to the ground. Any suggestions?

Try installing a mini version of fastboot and ADB (google it) and flashing TWRP 2.7.x.x manually. What ROM do you have on the device right now and what bootloader?

Like this? --> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2317790
But I guess that'll don't solve the problem since I already have the full SDK kit with latest USB drivers installed. But I'll give it a shot...

See signature. It's JB 4.2.1 and the version is the latest from Asus (10.6.1.27.5).

Yes that. Then open it up and:

Code:
fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery twrp.blob
where twrp.blob is TWRP 2.7.0.1: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2691886

That did indeed do the trick! My TF300T was reckognized instantly and I was able to flash the recovery. Thanks a lot!
