Default [Q] How to identify stock bootloader and rom version

I have just received my TF700T back from RMA in Sydney. Problem was failed HDMI port and unusable slowness. Returned to me as warranty ended so I unlocked it. Now I want to install custom recovery and Chromi-X and later (when stable) CM11. However I'm not sure what ROM version and bootloader (both supposedly stock) that I have, whether I need to download and install the latest official ROM first, but the naming used in my tablet info doesn't seem to match any of the download descriptions on the asus website. I have rooted and changed ROM on phone before but thats all, so not very experienced.

From settings /about it says the following:
Android version: 4.2.1
Kernel Version: 3.1.10-g03bdcb1 android@Mercury #1 Fri Mar 29 17:04:32 CST 2013
Build Number: JOP40D.WW-epad-10.6.1.14.4-20130329

Kernel Version:
3.1.10-g03bdcb1
android@Mercury #1
Fri Mar 29 17:04:32 CST 2013

Build Number:
JOP40D.WW-epad-10.6.1.14.4-20130329


On the boot screen with the three icons it says: Key driver not found...booting OS. Then: Android cardhu-user bootloader <1.00e> released by "ww-epad-10.6.1.14.4-20130329 A03

First of all you are in the wrong forum mate. This is the prime section.

You are on the 4.2.1 bootloader build version 10.6.1.14.4.

It is not the newest version so you can upgrade it to the newest version first if you like.

Also I hear that the maker of Cromi puts in loads of tweaks that either do nothing or he blatantly steals from me and calls his on. Hi Sbdags xxx
