And just like that, the quad-core Asus Transformer Prime has been rooted. Root was achieved by @TeamAndIRC. The root method achieved on the recently released 18.104.22.168 update that Asus recently pushed out to fix some issues with the Transformer Prime. There’s no telling when it will be made available to the public. Since the Ice Cream Sandwich update is scheduled to start on January 12, maybe the root method will be made public then, to ensure that it works with ICS.
In any case, thank you to @TeamAndIRC for working hard on getting root on the Transformer Prime.
