Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle.

ASUS TF700T Bootloader Unlocker App Decompiled for Modding
ASUS has a pretty long history of releasing unlocker tools for their devices. We’ve brought you news about these tools before. Unfortunately, not not all of them work perfectly, but many ASUS owners still appreciate the effort. The ASUS Transformer TF700T had its unlocker tool released awhile back, but now it’s been decompiled and the source released.
XDA Forum Member ostar2 took the time to break the unlocker tool down and release the code for modding purposes. As ostar2 explains:
I have fully decompiled and deobfsucated the bootloader unlock tool provided by Asus for the tf700t. I was wondering if someone here would be able to modify it so it would not submit data to Asus and void the warranty. I believe that this would be a great help to any one who owns the Asus Transformer Pad infinity.
It’s pretty well known that similar efforts proved futile with the ASUS Transformer Prime unlocker tool, as the tool requires access to ASUS’s website to get the device-specific unlock token. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be modded for other purposes, or to simply allow the developers to see what exactly is going on.
