Question [Q] Unable to Unlock (TF700T)

Hi All,

I've been doing a lot of searching and reading on the forums but haven't found an solution to my problem.

I've been tgrying to unlock the boot-loader of my tablet for days. I downloaded and installed v8 of the
ASUS unlock tool.

Everytime I try to use it, I get to the "Google Account Verification" step it says:
"Your password is not valid"
I know I've entered the correct password. I've actually signed out of my google accounts from the tablet
and then signed back in just to make sure I wasn't fat-fingering it over and over.

Here're the details:
ASUS Transformer Pad TF700T
Android Version 4.2.1
Kernel Version 3.1.10-gb1a9af5
Build number: JOP40D.US_epad-10.6.1.14.10.20130801
As far as I know, the tablet is absolutely stock (I bought it on e-bay)

If someone could point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.

I want to unlock, the install TWRP via fast-boot on the way to trying a couple of custom roms.

My search-foo is relatively weak so if I've missed an obvious thread, please forgive me.

atTHANKSvance!

Simeon

You don't have 2-step verification activ on your Google account, do you?
If yes, you need to disable it for this procedure.

Brilliant!

You have almost certainly diagnosed my problem....

It's late here, but I'll turn off 2-factor authentication and try again in the morning.

I'll post again with my results.

That was my problem..

I didn't actually need to deactivate 2-step authentication. Google will generate an application specific password for those programs that can't handle the 2 step process. I generated one for the unlock tool and it unlocked on the first try.

That was it...

Instead of deactivating 2-step auth, I generated a new app specfic password for the unlock tool. I put it in and it worked the first time.

Thanks again!!
