Well, without thinking I took the OTA. Then I realized I had root. Now I get the Android character with an exclamation point. I can't seem to get into recovery. At this point, I don't care if I'm rooted or not. I just want my tablet back. Suggestions?

Did you have a custom recovery? Or were you completely stock except for root? It should have updated fine if all you have was root with no other modifications.

Well, what you are describing (the Android with the exclamation mark) is stock recovery. How did you get there? Did you boot into the bootloader and then stock recovery? Did you accept the OTA in the Android OS, and it rebooted into what you're seeing now and got stuck?

That's odd that it would get stuck. Have you tried turning it off by holding the power button and then turning it back on?

You gotta hold the power button for about 10 seconds (maybe more) to force it to turn off.

No go. Also, under the android guy are the words, "No command."

Tap the Power + Volume Up button at the same time. Tap, don't hold them down. It may take a couple tries, but eventually, you'll see the recovery menu pop up on the top left corner of the screen with options to reboot, wipe cache, etc.
