For those of you who want to install, backup, and restore new ROMs on your newly rooted Transformer Prime, you will have to install ClockworkMod Recovery.
To do this, you can use Android ADB tool. I’ve included ADB for Windows, Mac, and Linux in the following download.
Step 1. Before we begin, go to your Transformer Prime then make sure USB Debugging is checked ON under Settings->Developer Options.
Step 2. Next, unzip the TransformerPrimeCWM.zip you downloaded earlier and you should find a bunch of files like shown below.
Step 3. Next, you will want to open up a command prompt for Windows or terminal for Mac or Linux.
Use the directory change command cd to change to the directory where you unzipped TransformerPrimeCWM.zip.
For Windows, should be something like:
Step 4. Type the following to see if you have correct drivers installed:
If you get some kind of letters and numbers and the word, “device”, that means you have correct drivers installed. Keep going. (For Mac/Linux, no drivers are needed. For Windows, please see How to Install Transformer Prime USB Drivers on Windows.)
Step 5. Next type:
adb tfp_CWM5_androidroot.blob /data/local
./adb-mac tfp_CWM5_androidroot.blob /data/local
./adb-linux tfp_CWM5_androidroot.blob /data/local
Step 6. Next type the following to gain superuser access:
Step 7. Then type:
dd if=/data/local/tfp_CWM5_androidroot.blob of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4
Step 8. If you get no errors, congratulations, you’ve successfully installed ClockworkMod Recovery on your Transformer Prime!
If you want to get into ClockworkMod Recovery at any time, simply hold down Volume down and Power button together for around 10 seconds until you see white letters like below. When you see if immediately let go of both buttons and press Volume Up and it will enter you into ClockworkMod Recovery.
