A bootloader unlocker for Asus Eee Pad Transformer Primes running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is now available. You can download the .apk by going to Asus UK’s support page, or using this link here.
Obviously, any unlocking of the bootloader on your Prime will see you voiding your warranty. By unlocking the bootloader you’re responsible for anything that happens to your Transformer Prime once unlocked, so please don’t come running to us if you end up bricking your device.
We’d advise that you only do this if you’re 100 per cent sure you know what you’re doing – for those unfamiliar with rooting, check out our quick introduction here.
Update: details from the support page:
