I wouldn't say everyone, and one can still find exploits if one is unlocked since one still has access to the code and OS updates.

I am not unlocked, since I am still waiting to RMA mine for a screen defect and though that should not be affected by unlocking (since it is a hardware defect) I don't plan on taking that chance, and I am currently looking for a new exploit (I released the first root method for the TP201 on ICS). But, I am not finding too much time to work on it around spending time with my family.

C'mon Sparky - we need a .21 root and yours is my only option since my drivers won't work.

We appreciate the effort mate. There are quite a few people keen to see this, but family comes first.

Is there anything we could be doing to help? I'm an Android developer, but I have no idea how you guys go about the task of looking for exploits to gain root!

Unlock bootloader using official unlock tool from Asus. Then use adp to push clockmode recovery. After that you can install rooted ROM. This is only way to do it right now for .21

Yes! But when you unlock bootloader you lost your warranty!

That is only way right now, and it could be for a while.

Hey that means a lot man thank you. Ill hold off for a wile then. I consider myself lucky with my prime. For one, newegg took its sweet time shipping my preorder so maybe that's why I have had no problems. No screen bleed, decent wifi, everything works fine.I still want to wait a wile before I void my warranty. This is the longest I ever went without a custom rom on one of my devices.

The sad thing is that my root held for several updates with OTA Root keeper and this last time it just didn't restore. Oh well.

Good luck with the exploit and thanks for your work.
