One Click Easy Root for Asus Eee Pad Transformer

Posted by techhackz-admin Monday, August 15, 2011


The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is one of the best selling Android Honeycomb tablet available for a couple of reasons: fair price, several connectivity options out of the box (HDMI, SD Card, USB etc.), good support from Asus (it just received Honeycomb 3.2 for example). In addition it can also be rooted quite easily and is becoming the tablet of choice for the Android developers: there are numerous custom ROMs available for it. rebound821 @ XDA recently released a one click tool to root any Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet.
Disclaimer: Please note that we will not be responsible if you end up bricking your device. Rooting or customizing your device can be risky, if you follow the instructions you should be fine!

This application is a shell script available for Linux only and it can root / jailbreak any Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet: US/WW/JP/TW/DE/TB. Note that is not compatible with the latest TF101 revision (B70).
You can find the download instructions and more information on XDA @ [US/WW/JP/TW/DE/TB] One-Click Universal root for stock firmware. Once your tablet is rooted / jailbroken, you can install one of the many custom ROMs available on XDA @ Eee Pad Transformer Android Development.
You can see the changelog below [from XDA]:
- Corrected some text
- Added a link on the Desktop to this thread
- Added stock ramdisk for all SBK (though JP, CN and DE are not the latest versions) (thanks to kovla for the latest TB recovery)
- Added a script on the Desktop to increase the font size on the fly for those who are using a very high dpi monitor/tv.
- Changed compression algoritm. Now the iso is ~10MB smaller.
- Maybe I have found the way to make everyone read the faq...

- [BETA] added a second script to come back to stock.

- added the option to install CWM (thanks Roach!)
- more error check
