    Bootloop TF300T: Did Firmware Update but still in bootlop

    Hello all,

    My mom's ASUS TF300T tablet and was stuck in a bootloop, tried the data wipe and RCK but ended up getting the lying down android with the ! coming out of it's chest. I look for solutions and ended up here.

    I decided to do a firmware update (unfortunately since it's in a boot loop I can't check the SKU whether it's CN, JPN ,US, etc). I'm in the US and I bought the tablet from amazon so I took a chance and did the firmware update with TF300T-US_epad-10_6_1_27_5-UpdateLauncher version.

    I did the steps in post 1, fat 32 SD card, unzip, rename to EP201_768_SDUPDATE.zip. Everything went well but it's still stuck in boot loop. I tried the wipe data first and it's still in boot loop.

    I think the firmware update was successful since the recovery boot menu is giving: Android cardhu-user bootloader <1.00 e> released by "US_epad-10.6.1.27.5-20130902" A03, which is the firmware I updated to.

    However, it's still in boot loop. I've tried leaving it for a few minutes but it's still the same. Oh also if I try the recovery mode RCK or wipe data again (without the SD card) it'll just end up with the ! android logo again.

    Maybe I'm just stup1d or something but did I miss a step or made a mistake in the update or is there a bigger problem on the tablet beyond just updating the firmware?

    Any help will be appreciated, thank you.

    On a side note, the link in the 2nd post does not work anymore, I found my firmware update here:

    Jeez - you really picked a lousy user name! Your self confidence must be quite healthy!
    Welcome to the forum.

    You seem to have done everything correctly, no stupid mistakes I can see...
    And what you describe about the update process is all normal, except for the bootloop naturally.
    I think your data partition got corrupted and needs to be formatted to make it usable again.
    Unfortunately you have exhausted the few options a locked bootloader affords you. If that tablet was unlocked we could almost certainly save it, but with a locked bootloader there is not much you can do.
    But wth, you have nothing to lose, so just try it. If you're lucky the locked bootloader allows you to access the /data partition, but I doubt it.

    Go to the Beginners Guide linked in my signature and read the section for installing a custom recovery to learn how to get fastboot set up on your PC. The Guide is for the TF700 but the instructions for setting up fastboot are identical for the TF300.
    You know you have it working if you get a positive return to the "fastboot devices" command.

    Then run these commands one after the other, letting each one finish:
    Code:
    fastboot -w
    fastboot format userdata
    fastboot reboot
    Your cmd window should look something like this:

    Code:
    @area51:~ > fastboot -w
    erasing 'userdata'...
    OKAY [ 23.188s]
    formatting 'userdata' partition...
    Creating filesystem with parameters:
        Size: 29618601984
        Block size: 4096
        Blocks per group: 32768
        Inodes per group: 8192
        Inode size: 256
        Journal blocks: 32768
        Label: 
        Blocks: 7231104
        Block groups: 221
        Reserved block group size: 1024
    Created filesystem with 11/1810432 inodes and 157662/7231104 blocks
    sending 'userdata' (139133 KB)...
    writing 'userdata'...
    OKAY [ 26.358s]
    Other than that there's nothing left to do. Sorry.
