I stopped going forward with this when the MOTOCHOPPER installed failed after 7 or 8 attempts. <== I don't care for this any longer. I care about the following.
Has anyone found a way to relock the bootloader, if this is even possible, on the ASUS TF700t running the stock JB 4.2.1 ROM V10.6.1.14.10 US edition?
BTW, I used the Unlocker found on the AUS support website V8_For Andorid 4.2.x.
- Help. I don't want to continue in an unlocked mode if all I wanted was to root my tablet to then try the Android 4.3 with CM10.2 Custom ROM.
If more info is needed ask away.
Don't give up yet! It is worth it to go through some trouble, learn some new techniques to run a custom rom. And since you unlocked and lost your warranty anyway, it would be a pity if you didn't take advantage of your new possibilities.
10.6.1.14.10 is not rootable with Motochopper anymore. Asus plugged the leak. If you want to use GooManager to install the custom recovery TWRP, then yes, you need root and you would have to downgrade to firmware version .8 to to do that.
But there's an easier way: You can use Scott's tool to push TWRP to your tablet via ADB
For most people the hardest part is to get the correct drivers installed on their PC. The rest is easy.
Once you have TWRP installed you can flash CM or - shameless plug for my favorite custom rom for the TF700 here - you may want to consider CROMi-X, the most stable, best supported, and getting-more-versatile-by-the-day ROM out there. It's based on the JB 4.2 stock rom, only much, much, much improved.
If you are looking for a 4.3 based rom because you are disappointed with the stock rom's performance, you would be surprised. CROMi-X unleashes the potential of this tablet.
No - I'm not getting paid for this
I'm just a firm believer that a rom based on the Asus firmware designed for this hardware will always be more reliable, more stable than any rom build from the ground up. Just MHO naturally.

Asus TF700 on CROMI-X - or miniC - or both. Kinda hard to keep track
