So then I noticed an Asus firmware update was available. I wanted to install it and then give rootkeeper a try to make sure I kept root.
During the Asus firmware update, the android symbol on the screen fell over on his back and had I think an X on him.
Apparently, something went wrong with the firmware update. Everything froze, so I pushed the power button.
Now, when the device turns on, it goes straight into CWM.
Since everything went haywire before I backed up the ROM, I have nothing to restore.
Also, now my device is not recognized by Windows.
I downloaded the [ROM][S Series] Virtuous Prime Beta 1 .zip file with the intent to install this custom ROM, but since I cannot get my Prime recognized by Windows, I cannot move the .zip file over to my Prime to install the ROM.
If anyone could help me through what to do next to possibly reinstall the stock ROM, get my device recognized by Windows, etc. It would be appreciated. I am totally lost now.
