Hi!

I recently got a repacked Asus TF300T from Fnac with Android 4.1 on board, I couldn't get the latest OTA so I downloaded it from Asus website and installed it through my Micro-SD...
It's a great tablet and all, the only problem is that now, I CAN'T UNLOCK BOOTLOADER!

I tried registering to Asus Website 2 days ago (apparently the Serial Number had not been registered...) but I always get "Unknown error, [network watsnot]"

I already read every subject about this issue and found nothing useful, some guy could unlock his device after trying again and again, I've been trying to use the Asus Unlock App V8 for about an hour now and no luck, I'm becoming more and moe frustrated by now, I really want to get rid of all those bloatwares and get a smooth android experience...

Why did Asus choose this dumb method, with my One X it was as simple as visiting a website, but with this tablet, I've been pulling my hair for about two days now

Are you sure it could help?
I saw the poll and it only worked for 6 people down there, I would be very lucky if it worked (And I've never been lucky) XD

[EDIT] I saw something strange, I've got a file named Unlock_Time.txt saying "Last Unlock Device Time: Tue Mar 19 22:18:13 UTC+01:00 2013" but I'm pretty sure my bootloader isn't unlocked...

[EDIT 2] And after a factory reset... It still doesn't work, great. I'm starting to pull my hair right now...

Mine doesn't, how could Asus think I unlocked my bootloader already? O_o
Is there a way, by contacting them for instance to allow me to unlock again (if they think my tablet is unlocked...)
However, this is strange...

I'll try to delete the file then run the unlock app again, but I think it won't chang anything since it looks like some ind of debugging (the date is changing everytime I try to run the app)
I don't know if it was unlocked before, it could be so, because I couldn't get the OTA the normal way and I had to flash the ROM by downloading it from Asus... If it was the case then I would be even more frustrated! lol

Same issue here. After contacting Asus tech support it turned out that my wifi mac address was not the same as the macc address they have registered at their systems. Therefor I did not receive OTA updates, nor could I unlock.

Only solution was to RMA the tablet, which I did a couple of days ago. According to the RMA status; the tablet has been fixed today and is on his way back. Will keep you updated with my findings.

Yeah, I would like to know if you are able to unlock it now.
There is only one thing, I don't know if I can have RMA as I bough the tablet repacked (Fnac does that, repack products that are good as new then sell them at almost half the price) so I don't think I got the Asus RMA, only the Fnac SAV (don't know how it's called in english)
