Easiest Way So Far To Root Asus TF101 And TF201 Tablet – Custom exploit to root Asus Transformer Prime has been discussed not so long after its official release: viPerMod Tool is the best one. Yet, even when this device got new software update, there’s also still a way to bring it rooted. But recently, there is another way to root Transformer Prime and this one is probably the easiest way so far by simply installing .apk file.
An XDA Senior Member “sparkym3″ has just released a very dead simple Android app allowing you to gain root on your Transformer Prime tablet in not so painful way. Created based on the busybox exploit, Sparky Root tool lets you root and install Superuser (SU) on your tablet without having to even rebooting. Sounds very cool huh?
This root app has been confirmed working on current OTAs for the ASUS Transformer (TF101) and Transformer Prime (TF201) Devices. This includes v188.8.131.52 for the TF201 and v184.108.40.206 for the TF101.
ps: This app will only root and bring SU on your tablet but it still has no feature allowing you to unroot. The developer says he will include unroot option in the next updated version.
