    Stock TF101 will not start up

    So yesterday, while writing a review of a movie on my Asus Transformer, it suddenly rebooted and got stuck in a boot cycle. No big deal, this has happened a lot since the ICS update(s). So I tried a warm boot, following that failure with a cold boot. Nothing worked. As a matter of fact, the whole screen went dark and wouldn't even try to boot. I'm pretty average in my Android knowledge, so off I go to the interwebs to find a solution. After an hour of reading or so, I determine that perhaps a reinstall of ICS would be my best bet. After all, there isn't much on the tablet that wasn't backed up.
    I attempt the NVFlash process via my laptop. It is a B60 model. It seemed to start to work but suddenly closes before writing to the partitions (or so I'm led to believe). My screen is now alive with:
    "Entering NvFlash recovery mode / NvSp server
    Chip Uid: 0370014841601257"
    Suddenly, I am out of my league and frustrated that this unit won't respond to anything I do.
    Additionally, I was able to see that when running NvFlash, it stops right after "creating partition: GPT" and closes itself out. What, if anything, might I be doing wrong here?
    Anyone have any advice or a sticky/thread that they can recommend?
    I greatly appreciate any help you can give.

    Thanks,

    Gary

    Welcome to the forum!

    I am not sure what to tell you. I have a B70 that is SBKv2 so I have zero NVFlash experience to give any advice.

    Have you tried putting the latest firmware from ASUS on a microSD and booting to recovery (VOL DOWN + POWER for 10 seconds then VOL UP to enter RCK)? You will have to unzip the firmware from ASUS one time and rename the unzipped file (it will still be a .zip) to EP_UPDATE.zip and put it on the top level of the microSD.

    Unfortunately, I cannot get it to boot into recovery and the microSD isn't functioning, unfortunately? I'm beginning to think this is what bricking looks like But I do appreciate your input and taking the time to reply.
