TF701T USERS: YOU MUST BE UNLOCKED, ON THE ASUS STOCK JB 4.3 BOOTLOADER VERSION 10.26.1.18 AND HAVE A WORKING RECOVERY - CWM 220.127.116.11+ BEFORE FLASHING THIS ROM. SEE UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU ARE UNSURE
I recommend you do a full wipe if coming from another ROM. Choose Wipe in CWM. If you are unlocking for the first time then it will also force you to WIPE.
You can restore data from Titanium Backups but please do not restore system data or apps from a previous version or another ROM if you want a nice clean smooth upgrade experience.
If you are coming from another source like Cyanogenmod or AOSP then you must wipe first. No excuses. ;)
Don't forget to do a Nandroid Backup first and give the ROM 10 mins to stabilise!

HOW TO FLASH
Make sure you have prepared by copying the ROM zip file to your internal SD Card or external SD Card first.
Please Unlock using the Asus Unlock Tool first found here.
Note installing and running this app will wipe your device and void your warranty.
You can flash CWM 18.104.22.168 using the instructions here.
Direct File Link is here.
To flash a recovery you need to have the fastboot.exe file and cwm recovery.img file in the same folder.
Right click + shift on the folder they are in and choose open command prompt here
Boot into the Bootloader by either booting with the Power and Volume Down Buttons held down until you get the 3 icons or by typing the following into the command prompt.
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img fastboot reboot-bootloader
If you need to move to the latest bootloader then manually install the 10.26.1.18 firmware from the Asus website.
In recovery choose install zip - install zip from /sdcard and maneuver to the folder you put the rom.zip (vol up and down) and select it using power button.
The AROMA installer will start - as we have no touch screen drivers in CWM yet you will have to use VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN to navigate and POWER to select. Choose as many options as you require ;)
Finally reboot when finished. :)
