One click root for Transformer Prime on Ice Cream Sandwich is here! For those of you who have not updated to ICS yet dude to root concerns and those eagerly waiting to root the device on ICS, you can now do so, very easily. The method at hand is simple enough to be used by novice users as well. Credit goes to XDA-Developers forum member zedomax for bringing this wonderful tool out to the users of the Prime tablet. The script was based on sparkym3’s code, so credit goes out to him as well. If you have updated to the latest 188.8.131.52 firmware from Asus, this will not work for you.
The One Click root tool is meant for Windows, Linux and Mac, so that’s great to hear. This script fixes the su directory issue, puts su binaries under /system/bin and symbol links /system/xbin, the standard way of rooting Android.
Enough talk, let’s get our hands dirty.
