Frederuco is the man to look for in regards to beginner guides. Try this to begin with:

There are a few good ROMs out there but I recommend Katkiss.

I too recommend KatKiss. I am running the 4.3 flavor and it is just awesome IMO.

Have a look through that guide. If you have any issues, let me know and I will assist. There are other methods too like Thing O Doom's PERI tool if that doesn't work. The biggest thing is to make sure you have a USB cable that works with a PC. Otherwise you cannot root.

Stick with TWRP unless you want to run Android Revolution (based in stock ICS firmware). In that case use CWM. And do not ever use ROM Manager with your TF101.

Thank you. I followed instructions and successfully rooted and installed KissKat 4.3.

I have a tf101 which I rooted successfully with Frederuco's method using EasyFlasher, then got my Other Half another tf101 for Christmas and EasyFlasher didn't work, PERI did (although I somehow managed to delete the stock ROM whilst flashing) which didn't annoy me too much as I wanted her to be running KatKiss anyway)

What's the danger of using ROM Manger with the tf101, I use to reboot into recovery though have never used it for flashing ROMs or such like.

Ziggy, I figured you would have seen this since you've been around so long.... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1671598

Don't use ROM Manager to update or install CWM recovery or try to flash updates.

I just use the buttons to reboot to recovery.

Hey Frederuco - I was joking too (imitating Bart Simpson writing out lines on the blackboard at school)

BTW Season's greeting to you and yours
