I have a TF101 with the custom rom Android Revolution HD and CWM mod. I want flash other rom so I wipe data in recovery, but it hangs while wiping data. I reset device but it stops booting when I see android logo.
I can go to CWM but inside the CWM I cant do a full wipe data because it cant mount /data and /sdcard, I cant flash any thing.
I followed Fenice82's steps in maliba's thread but cmd said that dd: can't open ' /sdcard/recoveryblob

Official Asus update from ASUS site

step 1

Unzip usb driver

now plug the tablet at your pc with usb cable and boot you TF in recovery mode (press togheter and hold volume down and power... when you see same line in the upper left corner press volume up)

your pc will recognize a new hardware...

install new usb driver...

step 2

unzip vipermod zip and put recoveryblob file in vipermod folder... where you see a file named adb.exe

open a console in windows

start and in search line type cmd

in console go to vipermod folder

cd c:/vipermod/path
now type

adb push recoveryblob data/media
wait 4-5 minutes


adb shell
you will see this symbol #

now type

mkdir data/local
mkdir data/local/tmp
ln -s /dev/block/mmcblk0p4 /data/local/tmp
dd if=/sdcard/recoveryblob of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4
The command prompt will be empty as when nothing happen, do not panic wait until the end of the process. DO NOT INTERRUPT (it will take apx.3-10 min)
When you see the following message:

8860+1 records in
8860+1 records out
4536396 bytes transferred in 1.718 secs (2640509 bytes/sec)

(the numbers in resulted message may be different but it has to have the same structure) You can safety reboot the device (hold power botton)

power on your device and you will see ASUS EeePAD flashing progress bar. Be patient and wait till the end.

step 3

unzip ASUS update file e copy the folder in a external sd

step 4

put sd in your device

step 5

put device in recovery mod (it will be a new one.. rouge...)

install zip from sd card
install from external storage
go in asus folder e select the zip file

wait the end and reboot device

at this point I incurred in encryption error but just after the first reboot the problem was solved...

Help me, please
