Nice, but neither google or forums are answering for my specific error message.

One more question, how to get back the stock firmware once i have modified my version by changing config files, moving dns servers off google, removed everythin smelling on google etc.?

One more thing, which might prove usefull to the EU users:

Bottom line, rooting / modifying the device cant void warrenty unless Asus would PROVE that the user action is the reason for the defect on the device. Also reversing is permitted in EU if the reason is interoperability, regardless of user agreement forced to you by the software / hardware creator.

I ran into this same problem when I unlocked my tablet recently. I found that if I downgraded to Android 4.1.1, firmware version 10.4.4.20, and used the version 7 unlock tool, everything worked like it should. The firmware can be found here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1946456

And I used the method here to downgrade:

I hope this helps.

Thanks goes to Pretoriano80 for compiling the downgrade method and keeping track of the older firmware!

Followed this, and it worked for me as well. But this wasn't before contacting ASUS to state that the device wasn't unlocking, and them claiming that their system already shows my device as "Unlocked and rooted" despite the fact it was nether?
(Thought that the last bit was worth of note as well...since prior to even unlocking my warranty was/is void)

In my case it turned out they had replaced the serial number of the device with the one of the dock. That had happened while the tablet was rma'd fot repair the last summer.

I banged my head to the wall for two weeks before noticing the error. The tablet had to be sent back to rma. Asus corrected the serial, andd then the unlock worked after couple tries.

It was tough....
