If you want to root your Transformer Prime on a Mac or Linux, no worries as I wrote a simple bash script that automates the process.
First, you will need a Mac or Linux computer/laptop. For Windows, see How to Root Transformer Prime on Windows.
Step 1. Go to Settings->Developer Options and make sure USB Debugging is checked ON. Connect your Transformer Prime to your Mac or Linux computer.
Step 2. Download TransformerPrimeRootICSMacLinux.zip and unzip to your desktop:
Transformer Prime ICS on 126.96.36.199 and later:
Transformer Prime ICS on 188.8.131.52 and earlier:
Step 3. Open up a terminal.
Browse to the directory you unzipped the TransformerRootICSMacLinux.zip by typing:
If you get a combination of numbers and letters with “device”, you are ready to go. If you don’t get this, double-check USB Debugging is checked ON and you have connected your Transformer Prime to your computer via the USB cable.
This will start the rooting process. You can go get some coffee or do some exercises for the next 5 minutes while the script roots your Transformer Prime.
Step 4. After 3 reboots, your Transformer Prime should be rooted.
Step 5. Verify that you have Superuser app on your rooted Transformer Prime. If so, congratulations, you’ve just rooted your Transformer Prime. Don’t forget to tell your friends about it and go celebrate at the bar.
