Transformer Prime Bootloader Unlocker Tool Released

This has been a long time coming. From the rumors to the official announcement, and the long waiting period in between, it has finally happened. The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime bootloader unlocker has finally been released.

XDA forum member hobbypunk has posted a thread that links to the Asus website where Transformer Primer owners can get their paws on the tool released by Asus that will allow for the bootloader to be unlocked. The tool comes in apk format, so it’s safe to assume that you simply need to install it on your device using your favorite method and run the tool. Along with the tool comes the usual spread of disclaimers. There is, however, notable fine print:

This tool now only works with TF201 ICS. It won’t work on other devices or TF201 HC.

In other words, just make that you’re already updated to Ice Cream Sandwich before attempting to run the unlocker tool.

If you want that unlocked bootloader goodness, you can head over to the original thread, where you’ll find the official website link and three mirrors along with the disclaimer and discussion. All hands on deck, it’s time for full S-Off!

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
