I do. Unrooted on 9.4.2.21.
I run my own on nexus prime but we have it easy over there, compared to other devices.
Still, rooting the prime still has at least one thing the user needs to remember after rooting process itself: when you root, either because you need to keep warranty or because you want to tweak the device, you need to make sure that everything you change on a stock rom, you need to put it back before running OTA.
I will unlock my tfp, surely, and there's already a few things i want to try, but i'm still thinking about asus RMA. I don't really want to loose track of my device, but light bleed seems to stand out even more when you know its there, even if it's just a bit.
I have not experienced any "random" reboot, but i believe the stock rom doesn't seem to do justice to Tegra3 - in fact, ics 4.0.3 was way faster in my phone.

I do, unfortunately. Stupid me updated when I first got it. I don't want to unlock yet as I will probably end up RMA'ing this prime for wifi/bt issues. Just waiting to get back my other prime from RMA.

This. The only reason I rooted was for these two apps, the ability to delete some system apps and the ability to run at 1.6 just cause. The Prime runs so much better without ads in the background draining my battery.

Now I want to know how that guy changed his docking sound, that sounds like a sick idea!

There is just no match in performance when it comes to custom vs stock.

I have been around looking for an answer for this. What you are trying to say is that rooting won't void the warranty as long as you don't unlock it? Because I want to advantages of root but I don't want to loose my warranty so early.

Thanks in advance!

You should not delete System apps if you want asus updates, if tried it too, but after i got a new asus update and tried to install it, i got an error and i had to reflash my current system
