At the beginning of this year, there was on outrage over the discovery of one of our forum members who found that the bootloader on the Transformer Prime tablet was locked and encrypted. Protest ensued, and ASUS quickly gave in and announced that it would develop an unlock tool. Now their official Twitter account revealed that the unlock tool (which they erroneously call ‘root tool’, for whatever reason) is expected to arrive in February.

Of course, this can mean anything from next week to 30-something days, but in any case, it’s still pretty nice to see the company respond and act so quickly. We’ve also seen their support being considerably stepped up and above of that of competitors, with ASUS Technical Marketing Manager Gary Key offering official support in our forums._________
