    I would like to share my personal use.

    Access to the bootloader menu : Start the tablet by Pressing Volume Up + Power button in the same time and release them after 2/3 seconds (USB cable unplugged).

    Menu (vol +/- to select, Power button to confirm action):

    - Reboot Droidboot
    - Reboot (-> restart on android)
    - Recovery
    - Power off

    Access to recovery menu : the tab reboots after pressing power button on "Recovery" and you see a death robot with the message "no command". To access at "Wipe data factory reset", "wipe cache partion" and "apply update from adb"; press both "vol + and vol -" and release them after 2/3 second. Retry if necessary, it does not always work the first time

    If you have the Lollipop update you have another option. Volume + volume - and power. You'll be propted to a new fastboot mode called "dnx fastboot" or "dnx mode", a black screening with a prompt saying "Fastboot starting..." or something like that. From now on you'll need a compatibile efi loader file, named bootx64.efi (google it) and droidboot.img, the standard Fastboot mode image. Then enter in a command prompt

    Fastboot flash osloader bootx64.efi
    Fastboot boot droidboot.img

    And you should be in Droidboot mode.

    I also found out how to do what patates posted on the Asus website. It appears to be the standard way to access recovery on Intel powered devices from Asus with the ZenUI. Something which is relatively new, not all that common, has very little (perhaps none) developer or user support or interest and as such has taken quite a while to come to light.

    I have added this information to the existing Master Help Guide threads. Please see the link in my signature for the Guide. It contains a wealth of useful information.

    BTW, a "cold boot" is the term used here to signify "cleaning the system cache". To do that on a TF103, follow the relevant section of patates helpful post. That has also been added to the relevant cold boot thread.

    Thanks patates - great job

    Mine is different there's no message included when the dead Android guy appears, there's no "no command". I don't know what to do next after that.

    Tablet stuck in black screen and tried to factory reset(wipe data) but can't get through with that red triangle :'(

    If you take a breath & calm down, you can read what to do in thi first post of this thread...

    No, Cookie is right. Something went wrong during the Lollipop update, and the recovery si no longer accessible the old way. Can't get pass the "no command" red triangle screen, I've been spamming all the buttons for days in all the possible combinations.

    Yeah I know, but sometimes it's bothering me why there's no message "no command" just like the others. Although I can clearly see a dead Android guy with red triangle on it.
