When you say all the magic starting to happen,,,what do you mean? I did the same thing and copied the update.zip to my microSD and even rebooted nothing happened?
Edit; I unzipped the update launcher zip and placed that zip on my microSD card and it is updating just do not know if I will be able to root again using Voodoo, fingers crossed LOL
Edit; No joy damn it LOL lost root have to do it all over again WTF!

As I reported earlier, the downgrade went well. BUT as others have reported, one must put the blob on device.
After the downgrade I then used:
SparkyRoot.apk to root.
THEN -- important
I immediately used:
Voodoo OTA RootKeeper.apk to save the root. This excellent apk allows you to turn root off and on at will. This also survives the upgrade as well -- see below.
-- NEXT I turned off root and attempted to upgrade... this seemed to not be happening -- although I couldn't tell if this was just a busy network or server, but I suspect it might be that I had rooted.
SO I went back to http://support.asus.com/Download.asp...mer+Pad+TF300T
and downloaded the V22.214.171.124 firmware for US and followed the manual description described there of how to upgrade, by copying the
file to my microSD card and then inserted it into the reader.
Immediately all the magic happened and I am now at 126.96.36.199
NOTE right after this I opened the Voodoo OTA RootKeeper.apk and restored my root.
SO now all is working and I finally have a pad with all the magic I need. I suspect that for future upgrades, I may need to copy the zip file from the Asus site above.
I hope my experience is helpful to those wanting to make this happen. Nothing new listed here, just the hard work of so many others.

I will try to wipe and start it from the beginning, just dont want to do that, heard that when you wipe on these tablets it wipes everything on the internal SD card too.

If it still doesn't work, I guess you'll have to do a wipe and begin again or wait for more recommendations.
