Bootloop, no matter what ROM

I decided recently, with the release of towelroot, to root my Transformer. I was having performance problems since the Jellybean update, but the optimizations I installed improved it. There was still some lag though, so I tried to flash a Cyanogenmod 11 nightly. There were no errors from CWM, but the tablet stalked at the bout animation. I tried an OmniROM homemade, same story. I flashed the newest OmniROM nightly, the GApps package listed on the OmniROM thread on here, and the US_epad-user-10.6.1.27.5 kernel, no soap. I can get Windows to detect the tablet when CWM is in sideload mode, but fastboot never connects, so I can't flash another recovery.

What version of CWM you are using ?
Maybe you should update it via a flashable zip (no need to pc)
And a good advise, always wipe cache & dalvik cache after flashing rom and before reboot.

I'm using 6.0.4.7. I've been using a jump drive plugged into the dock to load ROMs, so I haven't connected directly to the computer for a while. I've wiped cache and dalvik before flashing nearly every time, and after several times.

Ok if you still have the OmniROM image, try to flash it exactly as follow :
1- Wipe system, data, cache and dalvik cache
2- install OmniRom
3- install gapps
4- install kernel
5- wipe again cache and dalvik cache before reboot
6- reboot

Download links for latest gapps and kernel are in my signature (Geass is the best kernel IMO)

OK, I'll give it a shot. Probably ten minutes.

Whenever I try to format /data, it says Error mounting /data! Would this be part of the trouble, perhaps?

It's all flashed, but it looks like it hung up during the boot sequence again. I'll let it sit a while longer, and see what happens.

OK, it did absolutely nothing. I haven't worked on it for a while, because between work and the rest of life, I haven't really needed it. It is the same state, though.

Look up buster99's fix. I think that is what you need to do next.
