ASUS Transformer Prime is Rooted


The ASUS Transformer Prime has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons lately, but there is a bit a of good news today for all the Android wizards out there. The Prime has been successfully rooted by jcase and the AndIRC team. The root method isn’t currently available to the general public, but those wishing to fiddle with the software installed on the tablet out of the box aren’t missing out on much. A locked-down bootloader limits much of what can be done once Superuser access is granted. The upcoming NachoRoot tool will take care of the dirty work, but the team behind may be holding off release until after the Prime receives its January 12th Ice Cream Sandwich update.

  1. WOW this is spectacular! Asus sure is on top of their game! 

  2. I think Asus should be more like Samsung and ship devices with an unlocked bl. They already make some great devices and I think that would make them so much better. I think their sales would go up some also. I’ve had a transformer and now have a galaxy tab 10.1 and have to admit the transformer was a little nicer in my opinion. Much better display I think.

    1. The experts at displaymate say otherwise

      1. Maybe you should pay attention to what you link… that article is for the original Transformer, not the Prime.

        1. Maybe you should pay attention, look at the post that he reliplied to…..
