Since your computer can see it in apx mode, I would try flashing the stock rom package through apx mode. You can find it about halfway down the development thread page.

That is of course you have tried everything else that you want to try.

Ok so that didn't work the exe doesn't see my tablet so I extracted the exe with 7zip and found the image folder which has a bat file in it which after the first command I hear the windows USB disconnect sound so are there any other recommendations?

Do you have the drivers installed for apx mode?
