Asus seems to think smart when it comes to Transformer Prime’s savior from getting rooted as developers seem to be getting smart and now the Transformer Prime can be rooted on any of the firmware. So, in the due course of the article we will check out on how exactly you can root the same. Also, be informed that once you root the phone the warranty will get void for which we should not be held responsible. Also, the news has just come that the Asus Prime will be getting an ICS Android 4.0 release very soon, to be precise it will be rolling out from January, 12, 2012.
Please be informed that before you proceed, you need to have an ADB Setup in your computer as without this you will not be able to execute some key commands which are responsible for rooting. Also, ensure that you follow the tutorial carefully so as to ensure that the rooting goes smooth and successful. The tools which we will be making use of in this article are Nacho Root as well as the Superuser.

Procedure to Root Asus Transformer on Any Firmware:
- Before proceeding, ensure that the device has a minimum 50% battery left after which you need to enable the USB Debugging mode from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”.
- Download Nacho Root tool as well as Super user tools from here to your computer and then you need to connect the device to the computer using the USB Cable which you got at the time of purchase.
- Now, in the command line, you need to enter the below mentioned commands,
adb push nachoroot.bin /data/local/
adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/nachoroot.bin
adb shell /data/local/nachoroot.bin –stage1
<wait for boot>
adb shell /data/local/nachoroot.bin –stage2
<wait for boot>
adb shell id
<if id is 0 / root then continue, else start over>
adb push su /system/xbin/su
adb shell chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su
adb shell chmod 06755 /system/xbin/su
adb shell /data/local/nachoroot.bin –undo
- So, that’s it you have now successfully rebooted the device and you will see that the device is rooted successfully. Please note that you need to enter the commands one by one and the approximate gap between the commands should be a minimum of 3 seconds so as to ensure that each command is processed.
Once the above process is completed, you now need to download the Super User application from an all new Android market Place as it will be needing the super user permissions.
