New Tool Easily Roots And Unroots Your Transformer Prime
It’s been a pretty busy week for the ASUS Transformer Prime, which was rooted only yesterday. However, that solution required some manual messing with ADB – for those who aren’t really into all that stuff, recognized developer -viperboy- now created a tool that does the same thing, but all automatically.

Go ahead and visit the forum thread if you held out on the manual process, but still be careful – root is root, and if something goes wrong, you’ll have no one but yourself to blame.

This year, cardboard returned...
