One Click Root Script For Asus Transformer on Linux
Posted August 3, 2011 at 12:00 pm by egzthunder1
We all love simplicity in our lives. This is a concept that has spread throughout the technology world, a concept that is based on the law on minimal efforts (getting the same amount of work done, while reducing the actual input on said task). Rooting is always a fun activity but it can be quite time consuming if you are not sure of what you are doing. So, XDA member rebound821 decided that it was time to give Transformer owners something a bit simpler to get their root going. The one-click could not come at a better time due to the release of Honeycomb 3.2 for the Transformer a couple of days ago. The one drawback at this point is the fact that this only works on Linux (sorry Windows users). However, the dev has provided everything needed to get this going in a heartbeat without even needing to have Linux installed in your PC. There is a LiveCD image with the tool already included that will allow you to root and put CWM easily and seamlessly. So, simply burn the iso, pop it in your PC, reboot, and boom, you are on your way to root.
Simple enough? If you have any requests (other than a Windows version), please leave them in the thread along with some feedback.
This time I have written a shell script (linux only) to automatically root the stock firmware on the TF101. Every stock firmware.
