    Unable To Boot Into Recovery

    I successfully rooted my Transformer with Razorclaw a while back and am using the stock ROM, however I'm unable to boot into recovery mode or install OTA updates. I know this is a relatively common problem, but I haven't seen a solution that I've been able to get to work. The most common solution I've seen is to use ClockworkMod Recovery. Using the CWM app to flash the ROM, restore, or anything else simply results in a standard restart and won't enter Recovery.

    Any suggestions? Is there a way to fix Recovery mode without entering Recovery mode?! I'd really love to update to ICS!

    If you are rooted and want to flash back to stock to get OTA updates, you need to remove CWM Recovery. Check the flash back to stock links in my signature. You will need to know your serial number, but I suspect you should use the B7O-BCO link.

    Thanks Freceruco, I have read through the instructions for my B70 model and downloaded the necessary files, but am unable to proceed because I can't get into recovery. Step 1 of the instructions you supplied is "Reboot into ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery by turning off your device, holding Vol- and Power buttons until the screen turns on, and then press the Vol+ button when prompted."

    When I shut down and hold Vol- and the Power Button, my system reboots instead of flashing the text that instructs you to press Vol+.

    The strange thing is that my Transformer works normally otherwise! I can run all my apps and other normal operations with no problems. I just can't enter Recovery Mode.

    Did you install CWM recovery when you rooted?

    Tried to, but I'm not sure it ever installed correctly since I haven't been able to get back into Recovery Mode. I have the CWM app, and I did follow the instructions for installing to the letter, but the app doesn't seem to recognize that the CWM Recovery is installed. Also, I tried a full system restore which worked fine but didn't remove the root or allow me to get into Recovery Mode.

    Finally, after three months of floundering I stumbled upon a solution. I downloaded the latest official firmware update from the ASUS website as well as the firmware installer package and placed them both on the root of my Micro SD. A notification immediately popped up on the Transformer asking if I wanted to install the updated firmware (this notification was different from the one that automatically appeared and had been hounding me for months which had been pushed to my tablet by ASUS). After the installer loaded, my Transformer restarted and I was magically transported into the Recovery Mode which had been eluding me for so very long. From Recovery I was able to install the past couple of ASUS updates and am FINALLY running Ice Cream Sandwich without any issues!

    Thanks again for your time, Frederuco!
