Default [Q] Asus TF101 Soft Brick Re-loop HELP!

Hi everyone,
after days of researching this issue I'm finally at wits end. After installing the Playstore version of ROM Manager, my Asus has been stuck in CWM recovery mode with the inability to mount any drives. When I re-boot the tablet gets stuck on the load screen. I have tried several methods to flash the tablet using:

- NVFLASH
- EASY FLASHER
- FASTBOOT
- ONE CLICK RECOVERY
- ADB PUSH

The recurring issue that I seem to be encountering using these methods is that my PC recognizes the tablet in APX mode (I have tried both naked & usbpcdrivers) but the utility software does not. When I boot into recovery mode ADB recognizes my device but does not in APX mode. When I run NVFLASH while in APX mode my tablet gets disconnected from the PC and I receive a USB write error from NVFLASH.
Prior to the failure I successfully rooted my device using Baidu Root. At this point I don't even know how to power off the device as the only way to exit the loop is to boot into recovery or APX mode.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as my experience with these matters are limited.

Thanks
