Asus Transformer Prime bootloader unlock tool coming in February

Transformer Prime owners who were unhappy when they found out that their quad-core tablet came with a locked bootloader will have something to smile about in February. The @Asus Twitter account announced that a tool to unlock the bootloader on the Transformer Prime will be available sometime in February. Unlocking the bootloader on the Transformer Prime will allow those in the Android developer community to create true custom roms for the quad-core tablet that push its hardware to the limit!

Although the above tweet does say “Root tool”, they were actually referring to the bootloader unlock tool. A later tweet issued a correction. It’s nice to see Asus stepping up, listening to their customers, and doing what their customers want them to do!
