Ok, just did this and worked flawlessly, have root and CWM in under 10 minutes!
I'll replay step by step what i did to help those that are still confused. (it looks long but its really not, i was just very detailed causing this to be more of a "take my hand and i'll walk you through it")
Some background info. Highly recommend reading these if you don't know what either is!

What is ClockWorkMod recovery and how to use it by addictivetips.com
STEP 1. Make sure you have all the correct asus drivers installed. Not sure if this is necessary but i had them all installed previously and i didn't run into a single issue.
1a. Head over to Asus Support/download page for the transfomer
1b. Select your PC's operating system from the drop down box.
1c. Download and install the USB driver, Asus Sync, and EEE Pad Pc Suite (don't think this one is needed but i installed them all when i first got my tf).
Step 2. Verify that you have adb running properly.
Since adb.exe is included in the download, you really don't need the sdk or adb from elsewhere.
2a. connect your tf via USB to your PC after installing the driver and other apps from step 1.
2b. Open Command prompt on your pc (win key+R) and open (and extract) Tf_rootkit_31 (link at bottom of post).
2c. Navigate to /tf_rootkit_31/root_app/ folder from the downloaded and extracted file, drag "adb.exe file to the open command prompt window.
(it should read something like C:\....\tf_rootkit_31\adb.exe)
2d. After the "adb.exe" press space bar and type "devices" (w/o quotes ofcourse) press enter.
If it says "List of Devices attached" and under that a 15 mixed numbers and letters (serial number) followed by device then adb is working!
If NOT, look at the stickies or search on google on getting adb to work on your OS.
STEP 3. Now the fun begins Here we will put the TF in APX mode and install the APX driver.
3a. Shut your TF off and while plugged into your PC, hold the volume UP and Power button until your PC makes that USB device plugged in sound and there is a notification about installing drivers.
3b. Open up the driver install thing in status bar and press on cancel (or whatever it is to get it to stop searching online for the driver).
3c. Open Device manager, scroll down to "Other Devices" (might be named something else in xp or vista) and you should see APX something with a small exclamation mark in a yellow triangle.
3d. Right click it, select "Update Driver Software..." -> "Browse my computer for driver software" -> "let me pick from list ..." -> click next -> "have disk" -> Browse -> navigate to the downloaded tf_rootkit_31 folder, open usbpcdriver folder and select "NvidiaUsb.inf" -> open, and all it to install, Ignore the unsigned error, let it install anyway.
STEP 4. Get to installing! Now your TF should be in APX Mode (if memory serves me right the screen should turn on.
4a. Go to the downloaded tf_rootkit_31 folder and double click on root.bat (on the TF screen it should say something along the line of "...update successful..."
4b. (OPTIONAL) if you want clockwork mod recovery, then go ahead and double click cwm.bat [Follow STEP 6 to update CWM]
4c. Restart TF, once rebooted make sure USB Debugging is enabled (Settings->Applications->Development)
4d. double click root_app.bat (this installs su and superuser.apk via adb, so command prompt will open up and do its adb thing and reboot your TF)
STEP 5. Confirm completion and CELEBRATE!
5a. Open your app drawer up after reboot and check to see if the Superuser app is there, if so install an app that requires root access (root explorer, adfree, titanium backup etc) and once you open it up, if you get a box requesting super user permission the you got it working!
5b. do a naked/underwear dance!
STEP 6. Update CWM recovery!! You will need a microSD card
6a. Go over to the CWM thread and download latest version of CWM recovery
6b. Place that downloaded .zip (DO NOT UNPACK) on your microSD card
6c. power TF off, then hold voume down + power button, when you see white writing in the top left of the screen press volume up and you should now bee in CWM recovery. Use volume up/down to move through the options and power button to select.
6d. Scroll down to "Install zip from sdcard" press power button then select "Choose zip from sdcard" and now it should list what is on your microsd, Scroll down and select the .zip you downloaded (as of this writing latest version is named recovery-18.104.22.168-solarnz-R3-240511-1908.zip)
6e. Follow instructions on screen, should be straightforward. And now your CWM is updated!
