Why root your Transformer Prime Android tablet?
Rooting your tablet device gives you the power to do things like install rooted apps, backup/restore apps, backup/restore/install custom ROMs, and even overclock it.
For those of you on Windows, I made a simple batch script that automates the rooting process. For Mac or Linux, please see How to Root Transformer Prime on Mac or Linux instead.
Step 1. Before we begin, make sure you’ve installed USB drivers on your Windows computer. (See How to Install USB Drivers on Transformer Prime.)
Step 2. Connect your Transformer Prime to your Windows computer.
Step 3. Download TransformerPrimeRootICSNew.zip(18.104.22.168 or later) or TransformerPrimeRootICS.zip(22.214.171.124 and earlier) and unzip (uncompress).
Transformer Prime ICS on 126.96.36.199 and later:
Transformer Prime ICS on 188.8.131.52 and earlier:
You will find a bunch of files, double-click on “runme.bat” to start rooting your Transformer Prime.
Step 4. Press Enter to begin the rooting process. You can go for a coffee break, take a smoke break, or etc…etc…
Step 5. Your Transformer should reboot 3 times and it should be rooted.
Step 6. Verify you have Superuser app on your Transformer Prime. If so congratulations! You’ve rooted your Transformer Prime in just about 5 minutes.
You can now run rooted apps and Superuser Request window will pop up.
