New One-Click Root and Recovery for Original Transformer

As time passes after a device is released, older root methods often get patched. Thus, developers often are forced to find a new exploit to provide their users with root access. Sometimes it can be a rough process and other times it’s as easy as changing from one known root exploit to a different one.

In any case, once a newer firmware gets rooted, one can almost certainly bet that a one-click process is right around the corner—and for users of the Asus Transformer TF101 and TF101G on the .24 firmware, that time is now. XDA Senior Member Thing O Doom has released the new one-click method for users after seeing various questions asking if older root methods worked with the latest firmware release.

The method itself is easy to use. Simply download and run the included Windows .bat file with the device plugged in, and your device will be rooted. Even so, Thing O Doom politely requests that anyone using this method read the included ReadMe first. The method is unfortunately only compatible with Windows 7 x86-64 systems—so x86 systems, Linux, and Mac users will have to get to load a Windows 7 x86-64 virtual machine order to make it work.

Head on over to the original thread to get rooted.
