Deadlock bootloader / recovery - Should I throw my phone?

Hello guys,

after a faulty encryption I am in the following situation: no OS installed, no root access, boot locked (Asus Padfone 2 A86).
I cannot load a new recovery image because it's locked, I cannot unlock because I should use an APK provided by Asus but I have no Android OS.
Furthermore when I go to recovery menu I receive many "cannot mount /cache" so I cannot update the firmware through that (same error for /data).

Is it a deadlock? Should I throw my phone in the trash?

Could you please help me?


Thanks a lot!
