First Custom Rom Appears for the Asus Transformer Prime

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is arguably the most versatile and featured packed tablet available today. In addition to packing the exceedingly-fast Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, it lives up to its name thanks to its convertible form factor. And now that we have been graced by the official bootloader unlocking tool, things will only get better.
Thanks to the work of XDA Recognized Developer Diamondback and the rest of the Virtuous ROM team (XDA forum members Flemmard, cjward23, rmk40, chrisch1974, cypis, m-deejay, seo, and eViL D:), we now have the the first custom ROM for the device. The ROM’s initial beta release is limited in scope, essentially offering a full de-bloat, deodex, zipalign, and a few performance tweaks. However, it can be seen as the harbinger of many good things to come in the Transformer Prime development world.
In the words of the developers:
- Virtuous S Series
- Based on the lastest ASUS release (WW 188.8.131.52)
- Fully zipaligned
- Stock kernel
- Optimized for fluid performance and usability.
- Included 1.6Ghz OC (more on that below)
