After many many tries i found a way to convert my CUCC edition to WW.

This way should work for any Edition.

1.) Install ADB & USB Drivers
2.) Download recovery image (version should be smaller or equal to desired rom)
3.) Boot to fastboot mode (Power + Vol Up)
4.1) flash fastboot.img from original desired rom zip (fastboot flash fastboot fastboot.img)
4.2) flash recovery image (fastboot flash recovery xyz.img)
5.) reboot to fastboot again
6.) launch recovery from fastboot
7.) upload firmware (adb sideload xyz.zip)
8.) wipe cache
9.) reboot

Your phone should now have the desired ROM & SKU (even future OTA updates should work)

from android mode you can simply boot to fastboot by issuing following command: "adb reboot fastboot"
or to recovery: "adb reboot recovery"

and it should not matter which version you convert to which version as long as you choose the right fastboot and recovery image (the edition you want to have as a result)

doesn't work with CUCC firmware
I tried this method. My fimware is ASUS_T00G_CUCC_user_1.17.40.17_20140812_9510.
At step adb sideoad : Error : "E:signature verification failed. Installation aborted. Can't open /tap/update-script.log. E:Cannot load volume /sisc!"
I used these : 1.17.40.16_ww_recovery.img and UL_ASUS_T00G_WW_1_18_40_11.zip.

Any idea please ?

have you unlocked your bootloader via official ASUS unlock tool?

I managed to update by changing the name of the WW rom into CUC. Thanks for your help.
