Transformer Security Key Found!!

As you know, many Android devices have protections and encryptions that prevent our devs from having access to certain parts of the system. A good example would be Motorola’s RSA keys which completely locked down the bootloader, thus preventing devs from completely rooting the Droid X as well as a few other devices. The ASUS Transformer is not the exception to this. You are probably thinking now, who cares? Root has been achieved and I am running the latest custom 3.1 with an overclocked kernel, right? True, but you have to remember that the fact that you can do this did not happen by a miracle, overnight, or even by the hand of a single individual. For those of you interested in being able to unlock every Rom that ASUS puts out without even flashing a blob or a custom recovery, then you will probably flip out of your chair when you read what XDA member 9600pro87 posted. Apparently, the security key has been found, and this literally opens up the device to our devs. The key is not useful in its current form but rest assured that our devs will find a way to put this to good use. According to the OP, this will even open the doors to solutions towards reviving bricked devices.

Please leave your comments.

All current device give root forever and an unbricker tool.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
