    Welcome to the forum

    A factory reset sounds like your best bet. The reset hole is not a factory reset. Look at Frederuco's link for instructions.

    Are you saying you DID the factory reset and no help? What is showing on the screen now?

    Refresher:
    Start with the power off and detached from the charger. Vol down first then at the same time hold the power button until you see the white writing top left then follow the screen instructions.

    I know you won't like this, but I ran into the same issue with my Prime. Tried everything but couldn't recover it on my own. had to send it to Asus for recovery, $250+ later I received my tablet back as good as new. Asus had to swap out the motherboard to recover the tablet. I wish you better luck then I had, maybe you'll find the solution that eluded me

    It sounds like the bootloader is screwed. Think of it like screwing up the bios on a desktop or laptop (whether Windoze/Linux/Mac it's usually time for a new motherboard). The arm processors of the world rely on flash memory, in the case of every tablet on the market (including iFads) the flash memory is soldered to the mother board, so when you screw the bootloader, it is done. The only exception to this I have ever seen is the Raspberry pi which utilized an SD card to hold everything and can be replaced, but not any cell phone, tablet, laptop motherboard or desktop motherboard to my knowledge. Screw whats on that chip and it's over unless you can find a way to un-solder the flash memory and find a way to get a computer to recognize it to reflash.

    Edit: The reason you don't see bricked motherboards in laptops and desktops that often is because of the fact that very few people actually update the bios firmware which is where the bricking usually happens.

    Just when I'm going to need to start using ASUS motherboards again. They have been great as have all the ASUS products I've used. But now that Intel is getting out of the motherboard business it will be ASUS all the way, once again.
