    Asus Infinity (Tf700t) Stuck on android with spinning hexagon after attempt to reset.

    Hello,


    - There is some information that may or may not be relevant, but I'll add it just in case -



    I purchased a used Tf700t with Cyanogenmod on eBay.
    When the tablet arrived it did not turn on, so I plugged it in and attempted to turn it on but it wouldn't boot (power-on would show battery with red), I waited for about an hour, and finally got it turn on (battery was probably depleted).
    It worked fine, but the tablet had all of the previous owner's stuff on it (lots of apps), so I went into the settings and attempted to Factory Reset it (wipe data), once I pressed it the tablet quickly rebooted to the screen of an android with the blue hexagon spinning in his stomach (with a blue bar at the bottom)*.
    I waited several minutes and then it froze (stopped spinning, and blue bar stopped moving), so I long-pressed the power button and the boot began again, after displaying two "Asus" screens it went to the same Robot-Hexagon screen... I waited for about half and hour and then rebooted... It kept on repeating itself over and over (never finishing, and often freezing).
    I tried different combinations of the power-volume buttons, and finally turned it off (long-pressing power+volumeUp+volumeDown).

    Any ideas?

    *Photo (not mine, and minus the blue rewinding bar at the bottom) of the android screen I am referring to:

    Well, first, are you sure it was running cyanogenmod? That screen with the Droid is the stock recovery's way of reporting its progress, but that stock recovery is not capable of installing cyanogenmod. We could try treating it as a stock system, putting the stock firmware on a microSD card and renaming it and booting the tablet to the stock recovery. Might work, might not. First you need to do some reading:

    Might as well look over the rest of the Master Help Guide while you're there. I know you don't want to hear it but you'd have been much better off if you'd done that before using that "factory reset" button. Not sure if this'll do it or no, almost always we see a custom recovery in this situation, but the standard fix won't work with the stock recovery (you need ADB access).

    Thank you very much for you help.
    How do I do any of that without access to the Bootloader menu or without being able to check my correct SKU version?
    Can it possibly be completely bricked?

    Yes, it can possiblly be bricked. But you are booting into the stock recovery so if we can give that recovery something it's allowed to do, like reflashing its stock firmware, maybe it'll do it. If you're in the US I'd try the US SKU, next would be the WW, then maybe JP.
