ASUS TF300T Flash Firmware for Touch

Hello,

I'm trying to flash the firmware update for an ASUS TF300T because we replaced a broken digitizer.  I found out how to flash the firmware, but I need to have the tablet rooted.

I have the tablet unlocked, but now in order to flash TWRP so it can bee rooted I'm running into issues.

When I load up TWRP by holding down Volume Down and Power I cannot run the installation for SuperSU because TWRP is apparently all touch based.  Since my touch does not work, I cannot do it!  I have a chicken and the egg issue here.  How do I root this device without touch so I can install the firmware update to get the touch to work?  Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, the only solution I could see it to purchase the correct digitizer.  The customer has decided to not put that kind of money into it.  It's ridiculous.  Oh well, thank you for your help.

An alternative recovery project to TWRP is Clockworkmod, which comes as a touch and also as a non-touch version. See http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager

I have looked into CWR. The version I have downloaded and installed does work, but now I have the issue that it can't mount a directory or SD card. This obviously poses an issue since I cannot install SuperSu! Very frustrating indeed...  maybe you're version will work better. Any other ideas before I can work on it tomorrow?
