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!

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
