    I bricked it!

    Hey guys! Been playing around with the transformer pad 300. unlocked it. rooted it. all while on 9.4.3.29. but then the update 9.4.3.30 came out so i installed the update. lost root. tried the same process to root via these links. could never get the recovery.img to load this time around. i uninstalled drivers and reinstalled drivers. always got stuck on "booting recovery kernel image". eventually i pissed it off. now when i try to go into fastboot mode, i dont get the 3 options "wipe date" "usb" "android cold-boot". all i get is booting recovery kernel image" and it sits there. if i dont hold down the volume down button during reboot. it sits on "the device is unlocked".

    Is there an adb way to push files and get this puppy running again?

    Fix

    hey guys this is how you fix the problem.
    download official rom/firmware from asus.
    HTML Code:
    http://uk.asus.com/Tablet/Transformer_Pad/ASUS_Transformer_Pad_TF300T/#download
    open the rom and extract the BLOB file to where ever you like.
    then use FASTBOOT to flash the BLOB as a boot image.
    use this code in CMD

    fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash boot [LOCATION OF BLOB FILE] example: C:\Fastboot\blob
    wait for it to finish flashing takes about 10 minutes.
    once finished reboot using this code
    fastboot -i 0x0b05 reboot
    all done thanks for reading guys and hope it helped.

    p.s. follow this post if you would like to flash custom recovery and root.

    Doesn't help much

    The problem is that the TF300t stuck with the message "booting recovery kernel image" and freezes there, so you cannot go to fastboot or anything, nor using any volume up/down tricks..

    Any suggestion how to fix that?

    Working right now. Will get back to you tonight.

    Can you describe how you are trying to get to recovery, apx, etc.? Please don't take offense, but I've found that when people say they cannot get into recovery, apx, etc. it's actually them not pressing the buttons correctly. I work with computer electronics, and sometimes I run into customers that think they knew how to do something but they really didn't and it totally messed up their devices.

    One question. Why not RMA it?

    Thats ok, no offence taken
    I'm trying to go to APX same as going to recovery, but with Volume UP, so I hold the volume up button, keep holding it and then I press the power button. I tried pressing volume up, keep pressing it, pressing power button and keep pressing it. My windows machine still doesn't recognize the tablet nor APX.

    Oh, as for RMA.. I don't know if people notice it, but when you use the ASUS unlock tool, it reports back to ASUS HQ that your device is being rooted, and therefor you cannot get any service for it, nor RMA it.
    Even if you Lock the device by any means, ASUS DB regarding your tablet will remain as an Unlocked, so still - no RMA, no warranty, nothing.
