Bricked Asus ME301T

Messed up big time and have surely bricked my device (permanently). Was trying to install Omni ROM on it. (Had it rooted, unlocked it, couldn't enter recovery then, kept getting error. tried to flash TWRP recovery 2.6.3.0 using terminal on tab, reset the tab, and we get where i am now)
Now all i get when i switch on my tab is an ASUS start screen with "The device is unlocked" message on the top left, and it just stays there. Same thing happens when start it with hold power button and volume down key or reset and volume down key. But when i press reset and volume UP key, the pc recognizes the tab, and i can install the driver either as:
1. ADB interface
2. Bootloader interface
3. Composte ADB interface

and the device comes up as an APX.
Tried to follow Buster99's method (of unbricking for TF300T) after the device drivers are installed, but all i get is <waiting for device>

Any hope of recovering it or am i really fckd.

My ME310T is bricked as well and I am not sure of what to do since using the pin hole to reset does not work.

It kept booting to the ASUS logo and I downloaded software from the ASUS site and put on my SD card and tried to load the new firmware/software. Now I only get a green android on his back with a red brick.

Please help, thanks

Omnirom on ME301T,
Hi,

I have a working ME301T with the latest (yesterday!) Omnirom on it, but......

I broke the glass when I was opening the device to replace a broken speaker.
I found (google is my friend) that these broken speakers cause a crash or reboot every now and then, the rubber comes loose, then the winding cause a short circuit when playing music, that crashes the unit.

So if you want to take your speaker and screen, and use our electronics, you have a working unit again.
Send me a PM with an offer if you are interested.

Un saludo from Spain,

Satbeginner
