Hi
1.- I want to install a new Rom (Android 4.4.2 KitKat omniROM)
2.- But first I need to install TWRP (.blob), so I need to install and run a fastboot tool (Minimal adb/fastboot tool)

I unlocked the bootloader of the tablet
I install the fastboot
I install the drivers of the fastboot of the Asus
I copy the file.blob to the same folder of the fastboot
I open the fastboot and in the CMD I wrote ''fastboot devices'' and it find the Asus so in the screen was numers and letters like a code...but then I wrote the command Fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery file.blob but then give an error (failed....(no such device or address))
I tried all to solve this problem but I cant.. so I need your help.

I tried:
?Reinstall fastboot tool
?Restart the tablet
?Use all the usb ports of the PC
?Reinstall drivers
?Used apps like SDK Manager
?Used other usb cable

Is your bootloader unlocked?

I'd say try to use a completely different USB or computer. If that doesn't work, you can actually flash it from the system itself if you have root. Can't remember the command. Give me a second.

Are you on 4.2 bootloader?

To install without using fastboot, download twrp, make sure its one of the newer twrps, I think 2.7 and above is required for KitKat, and..

[QUOTE/] Save it to the root of your /sdcard directly (internal memory only) and rename it to twrp.blob

Launch terminal emulator or connect to your computer and open an adb shell, then type the following:

su

dd if=/sdcard/twrp.blob of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4

Then reboot to complete installation.

So, yesterday I clean the Asus Cable, the port of the pc and the port of tablet and finally works, so I flashed my tablet with TWRP recovery and the 4.4.4 omniROM Nightly.
The all problem was the cable and the ports.
