if you knew how long it took for my PC to boot up and open an app, you'd ask also.. It does have usb ports, its not that old..lmao. its all good. still deciding if I want to give it a shot now or wait till after ICS.

Very nice work. Is there any way to revert this root?

For everybody considering doing this, do note that ICS is scheduled to release 12 January. Trying to update/upgrade a rooted/hacked tablet MIGHT BRICK your Prime.

So it could be wise for the majority of users to wait untill ICS before trying to root.

mount system, delete su

Why would it brick if they just installed su (really dont know, would like to look into preventing it)

Process went flawlessly. Thank you jcase.

I must say the build.prop and standard gps.conf are decidedly empty, weird.

odd, NachoRoot doesn't write to system so im guessing thats normal?

That's entirely my point. It just seems odd that they're so empty (maybe not so much gps.conf).

I'm not that into programming/rooting, therefor my emphasis on might. For the majority of users it might be just safer to wait those 9 days until ICS.

Since ASUS uses BLOBs for updates, it will most likely just over-write the system folder anyway. No more 'SU', but also no brick!

Then I don't see the concern, re-run the root

Weird Titanium is asking for root and shows up in the SU list but when restarted says could not obtain root. Will try reboot.

edit that didn't work any ideas
