We have confirmation that the latest 126.96.36.199 OTA update for the Transformer Prime has now been rooted! Even better, it is a one click solution so even the most novice of users, who grabbed the latest OTA update that Asus pushed out, can now root their device in no time at all. The One Click solution is brought to us by XDA-Developer forum member -viperboy- who released this very tool a while back for rooting the earlier firmware, but now, the tool has been updated to work on the latest OTA, that is the 188.8.131.52. Further credits to Saurik for coming up with the root method for the latest OTA. The tool will work for both Windows and Linux.
