Official ClockworkMod (CWM) and for Asus Transformer TF300T tablet now available. This is a custom recovery with more features than stock recovery. If you have android 4.0.3 or 4.0.4 ICS firmware or Android 4.1.1 Jelly bean firmware, you can install it. Moreover if you need to flash the ASUS stock recovery, you can do it using this tutorial.

So you have to use volume keys for navigation and power button for selection.
