Easily Simply Just Root Your 3.1 ASUS Transformer

So, if nothing else could be said about Honeycomb latest update for the Transformer, it is rather smooth and people (quite possible for the first time in the site’s history) are actually happy with stock. It is fluid, stable, and very much usable. As such, many members are leaning towards keeping the device stock, but would love to have an easy way to root the device to be able to do things such as Titanium Backup, using Root Explorer, and a few other things. XDA member mashi provided us with a rather simple method to do just that. You will not have CWM doing this, or a few other things that you may be used to having on rooted roms, but you will have the ability to do a lot more with your stock rom than what ASUS intended. The dev does give you a way to install CWM if you want to via APX, all wrapped up in the simplicity of running a file in .bat format.

Who knows? This being so much easier than the original root method may be a prelude to the awaited 1 click root method. Please leave some feedback for the dev if this method was useful.

 

This is pure root kit for Asus Transformer.
It is only root but nothing else
