Though its bootloader is still locked down, the ASUS Transformer Prime has been rooted. The news broke yesterday, and at that time the method for achieving Superuser access had not been made publice. Today, thanks to ViperBoy of RootzWiki fame, the NachoRoot exploit developed by jcase and TeamAndIRC can be deployed by all. The viperMod Primer Tool is currently a Windows-only executable, but a Linux version is said to be in the works. Those interested in rooting may want to hold off until ASUS delivers its official Ice Cream Sandwich update, as new software versions often break previously uncovered exploits. An official bootloader unlock tool has been promised for release later this year.
