Well, CWM installed properly, so I'm guessing it worked. Root_app didn't work even with USB debugging enabled, but I installed Superuser from the market. But for some reason, AdFree didn't seem to recognize the root... TiBu doesn't work either.

Odd...

EDIT: root_app doesn't seem to find the device. I downloaded and installed MTP drivers from Asus and tried again (with USB Debugging enabled), but still didn't work. So CWM works, but the device doesn't seem to be rooted (or at least, the apps don't recognize any root).

TiBu doesn't recognize root either.

EDIT: And busybox won't install because it doesn't see an su, which Superuser won't install because it doesn't recognize root, which I obviously must have because CWM installed and works properly. Pretty frustrating, this is.

EDIT2: Never mind, root_app somehow worked. It might be because I installed ASUS Sync.

Anyway, to those wondering if this works, it does. Just make sure to have all your drivers installed, APX or otherwise.

Now, to wait for PRIME 1.5 to come. I better start backing up my apps.

First you need this as well:
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/Eee...or_Windows.zip
It said process completed successfully but nothing happened - no superuser app and no root...
Installed the SuperUser app fro Market. still no root (tested with Root Explorer)

The problem is with the adb not recognizing the device, therefor can't push the superuser.apk

any ideas what to do?

btw, Clockwork is working - which means I can flash a rooted ROM over the current one, use titanium backup to backup apps&games and then if I want, wipe and reinstall the rooted ROM.

Success!
After I managed to get ADB with the Transformer and updated Windows Media Player (so I can mount on my XP computer at work) I also managed to push the root files and got root access so I can verify this script is working perfectly.

The clockwork however can't mount the sd-card which means I can't flash a custom ROM so I would love if anyone points out a solution for this.

OK, just to recap, for the newbs and chronically specific:

This only works from Windows at the moment.

I must be sure that I have working ADB (ie: Windows-specific TF USB drivers installed) - because APX sets the TF to be receptive to info from a computer, but doesn't guarantee that the computer knows how to talk to it.

I will have downloaded the .zip file and checked its integrity (is there a MD5?) and then unzipped it to a folder on my desktop.

APX mode is local to the tablet. (Q) Do I connect the tablet via USB to my Windows PC before I enable APX mode or after, or it doesn't matter?

In the following steps, these run commands are all performed by double-clicking the relevant files (many Windows users' settings won't display the .bat file name suffix, so it will just say Root or CWM, etc.) in the folder I unzipped on my desktop.

6. run root_app.bat (to install superuser and su)
7. done!

Not at home so haven't had a chance to try it. Looking forward to it.

Thanks for exactly what I was waiting for!!!
