    Okay, after much searching and tweaking I finally was able to get CWMod Recovery ( flashed onto my TF300T. I am able to boot into it but I get a whole list of error messages and it will not allow me to mount my Internal SD card. Thus I cannot access the root install zip files. I have Jelly Bean 4.2 latest build, and I installed the JB recovery image. Any suggestions?

    Your rooting package is infected with a virus. I got the CMW bootloader installed without a problem, but like the other poster’s, can’t get the system to mount the /sdcard.
