    Unrecoverable bootloader error, HELP

    Hello, I need HELP!!!
    My TF201 is blocked, it wonŽt boot, all I get is a message that reads "signature mismatch" "unrecoverable bootloader error"
    Is there something I can do to fix it?? or is this the end for my tablet?

    What did you do prior to this error? Any rooting, bootloader unlocking, CWM installing etc. These will probably be needed to help you out.

    the only thing I did before the error appeared, was installing a Netflix App.
    After that the next time I started the tablet, I got that error. If tried a hardware reset, but it didnŽt work...

    Try pressing and holding power + vol down until you see a bunch of text show up (about 10 seconds or so) and then release, it should bring you to a screen with some words in the upper left and 2 icons. Let it sit there and it will Cold Boot Linux. See what that does.

    it didnŽt work. It tries to do the Cold Start Linux, but it falls back to the unrecoverable bootloader error.

    Sounds like the internal memory on your tablet is messed up (that is to say-- broken).

    I'd contact Asus ASAP. Likely you'll need to RMA it for another one.
    TF101 B70 series, USA running Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3, rooted. 64gb microSDXC, keyboard dock with 32gb microSDHC in an adapter
    Dell Streak 7 running Honeycomb 3.2, rooted. 64gb SDXC. Mainly used as a music player.
    Virgin Mobile Optimus Slider, rooted -- frequently used as WiFi hotspot. 16gb microSDHC.

    You may want to check this thread [HOW-TO] Unbrick your Transformer Prime (or not) - xda-developers. It sounds like you have a hard brick type 2 which is unrecoverable at this time. You can try to rma but if you are unlocked then your serial number will be on file. I have heard one person returned his hard bricked prime and they flashed it back to life. Hopefully nvflash will be released soon to correct this type of problem some users are facing.
