Ok, but with the old bootloader you cannot use the usb cable to sync with the pc. I can manage and prefer stability over usb but currently I am using ARHD v3.1.0, with the new bootloader and didn't have reboots in the past week.

Anyway, Asus is releasing soon an updated rom for the Prime, so maybe soon they will have one for our device too.

1.3.1

Hmm
So I have the new bootloader.
Went from Revolver HC to Revolver iCS 1.2, 1.3, 1.3.1

Maybe there was something good in 1.2 that made mine reboot free.

How can i check bootloader version?

Yes, if you installed Revolver 1.31, then you are on the new bootloader. you'll need to downgrade the bootloader at this point, since we suspect the new bootloader is causing the issues.

To check your current bootloader version, hold in Power & Vol- for 10 seconds - the bootloader version will be displayed there....

Unless you really feel comfortable flashing and rooting, etc, you might just want to wait this out - we already have a few people testing and so far their results haven't been very good....

That being said, I'm not sure if my exact config has been tested by anyone yet:
- 8.6.5.6 bootloader (I "downgraded" by restoring stock Asus 8.6.5.6 ROM) - then I had to root and install custom recovery.
- 9.2.1.11 ICS (Revolver 4, version 1.3) - Installed via custom recovery installed above.

Can't imagine that I just happened to stumbled upon the only "magical" combination though, so I'm not sure what to think.

I know my TF is back to being stable after this process though. However, I still want to let stay running for another day or two, just to be 100% no more reboots occur, etc... Then, I can experiment a little more with different bootloaders and ICS versions to see if we can figure anything out....

yeh same thing happened to me only i couldnt fix super user. flashing rom again over the broken one gave root again. worked on cm9 for my atrix but not revolver. it has to do with were the su is located.

yeah i figured, i guess we have to wait until after Easter weekend to see if gnufabio will switch to chainfires supersu app natively.

if you dont mind, can you try the instructions laid out in this post:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=434

that way we can confirm for sure that we cannot switch superuser apps on revolver rom without issues.

I tried that method but it always ended with the same result.

and if it does break root for you, flash this in CWM to get back working superuser + binary (instead of having to reflash the rom)

I hope he does...

I've been using Chainfire's SuperSU on my TF with Revolver 3.11.1, on my Evo4G with Synergy, and on my son's rooted Optimus S, and it's flawless.

The pro version has some awesome tweaks.

Galaxy Note2... running JLMancuso's awesome Community ROM Beta 1.1!!!
Transformer... Running Revolver 4.2.0 ICS w/ Guevor's v22.6 kernel
Brain... Running Amok
Using CHAINFIRE's SuperSU v2.01 on all!!!
