    That is what I get when I try to boot into recovery. What to do now?

    I am sure this is due to my ignorance and recklessness. Before the ICS update I was rooted and running Revolver. When I didn’t receive the ICS OTA update notice, I did a complete wipe and flashed the rooted, but otherwise stock ICS from XDA Developers. All went well for a few days until the transformer quit connecting to my Motorola Router in the middle of a download. Luckily I was still able to connect using the wifi from my phone. I had flashed CWM recovery, so I decided to flash Revolver. Big mistake.

    The TF hung on boot after flashing Revolver. Wiped again and flashed rooted ICS, only now it is really buggy. By now the stock ICS was available for download so I wiped and flashed it in hopes of regaining some stability. Well, it works and is stable, but now I am unable to boot into recovery. The little Android guy falls on his back with a “!” on his chest. I can still reboot into ICS, but I am worried that I will never be able to root again without being able to boot into recovery.

    Part or perhaps my entire problem may be because at one time I had used Voodoo’s OTA Root Keeper. Apparently there can be problems when using CWM recovery without deleting Rootkeeper’s protected SU back up. Just don’t know.

    So, I know this is just another one of those sad stories and I may end up having to send it in to ASUS, but I would be really grateful if any of you gurus out there can help.

    Thanks

    I guess the short version is I just need to be able to get recovery working again.

    The Android guy with ! is your stock recovery.
    Just use ViperMod (option 1) to root and use RecoveryInstaller to get cwm back on your tf

    OK, not sure about ViperMod and option one. Is this something I have to download and place in the root of my micro sd card? I will Google it.

    Did I mention that when I press the volume up button for recovery, the guy cranks away for a while and then falls on his back with the ! stuck in his chest?

    Thanks for the response and any further clarification of this method you can give me.



    Just found it on XDA developers... think I can take it from here. Thanks again.
