The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet (what a long name!) is the flagship Android ICS tablet these days. Its Tegra 3 CPU and the fact that it runs Ice Cream Sandwich make it the tablet to beat at this time. Asus recently provided an OTA update for ICS and some folks may have their root privileges. But be assured that the dev community is watching as there is now an easy to use utility which can root your Asus Transformer Prime (running Ice Cream Sandwich or Honeycomb) and Asus Transformer tablets.

See below a description of viperMOD Prime Time from its developer -viperboy-:
Introducing viperMOD PrimeTime! An automated rooting program for your Asus Transformer Prime TF201 (ICS or HC supported) and the Asus Transformer TF101. It is very simple and easy to use with extra features that other root methods don't have. Works on Prime's that lost root with the ICS OTA! Now, here is how it works...
- Download the .zip
- Plug in your Transformer and make sure to install the drivers located in the included .zip (unless you can already adb into your device, then no need for drivers)
- Kill Asus Sync and Splashtop! - very important!!
- Run the viperMOD PrimeTime.exe and choose an option.
It's as simple as that! I have tested this about 30 times (both rooting and unrooting) and it works just fine! I would HIGHLY recommend downloading Voodoo Root Keeper!! Any issues or questions, please feel free to post here! Enjoy your rooted Prime
