Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime Gets Root

All hail root!

It was only a matter of time before someone got Superuser on the latest and greatest of the Asus Transformer series and that time is right now.

XDA Recognized Developer jcase has successfully found an exploit that will get your Asus Transformer Prime rooted with Superuser so those lucky enough to be toting one can experience all the greatness of Superuser access.

It’s a pretty standard root process for those who are familiar with non-one click solutions. You download the exploit, push it via ADB, install the Superuser app from the market and, as always, the final step is profit.

You can find the downloads, the full instructions, a nifty how-to video, shout outs and all the other goodies in the original thread.

The thread itself is also being used a support thread, as jcase says:

This is the support thread, feel free to ask questions here. Please do not redistribute my exploit.

So any issues, questions or anything else that needs discussed will be in the thread too and it’s always a good idea to read through the whole thread to see what others are having problems with (and the fixes for them) just in case you run into some problems. As always, especially with root, there’s a chance that things can go horribly wrong so make sure you exercise caution as well!

Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
