Clicking on properties of the Samsung phone does not produce any drivers to uninstall and uninstallation of the phone works, but reinstalls when I connect my tf700. So, I'm stuck. I'm wondering if I can use twrp manager from the playstore to install 10.6.1.14.8.zip to downgrade and then root, install twrp from goo manager ? Fastboot method of installing twrp has not worked for me either, I'm thinking because of the drivers issue. Any one have any thoughts of where I can go from here ? I'd really like to get a custom rom on my tablet.
Strange problem. Did you have the drivers for a Samsung phone installed prior?
It would be good if you could solve the driver issue - just so that you have fastboot access to your tab in the future.
Sure, you could downgrade to .8 and use Motochopper to root, then GooMangager to install TWRP (though I have never heard of TWRP manager to install stock firmware???), a quick search on the forums will give you the steps.
But to solve the driver issue, you may want to try to install the Universal Naked Drivers from Google, or install the Android SDK tool and through it the Platform Tools and drivers. I would prefer the latter.

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