ASUS Transformer Prime Bootloader Unlock Should Come In February

Of course, this can mean anything from next week to 30-something days, but in any case, it’s still pretty nice to see the company respond and act so quickly. We’ve also seen their support being considerably stepped up and above of that of competitors, with ASUS Technical Marketing Manager Gary Key offering official support in our forums.
