I have ASUS eee pad transformer.

I used OLife to use Ubuntu on it, it worked but it crashed Ubuntu. Now when i boot it always goes to APX mode, so i have black screen only. No Android, No Ubuntu i got. Nothing shows up on the screen. But when i connect the device using USB to my PC i can see its showing

Bus 003 Device 077: ID 0955:7820 NVidia Corp. 

(Which means its in APX mode.)

Now, I dont want to use Ubuntu on it. How can using APX mode, completely install the Android as new on the device from my PC?

Is there any OLife like package available to install Android straight quickly on it?

@Izzy except that this was originally a n Android device. It's more like "How do I return to the stock image" – GAThrawn Jan 29 '13 at 9:51
@GAThrawn Ooops... That wasn't clear from the post. And one cannot be familiar with all devices (/me apologizes) In this case, rather send the OP to Where can I find stock or custom ROMs for my Android device? then? – Izzy Jan 29 '13 at 10:41

If you can access APX Mode, you can restore a stock ROM using Easy Flasher.

The steps are the following:

  1. Check if your Asus Transformer is supported.
  2. Download Easy Flasher
  3. Download the latest stock ROM from Asus website.
  4. Copy the update zip to asusupdate folder (inside Easy Flasher folder).
  5. Open Easy Flasher and hit Flash Asus stock zip

The application will install the stock ROM back to your Transformer, so from there you can root or install a custom ROM without problems.
