I have an app I purchased for my phone (there is a free version) called Root Uninstaller Pro. I installed that and it asked for Superuser permissions - you only get these if rooted and Superuser is installed
Superuser verifies that Root Uninstaller Pro has superuser permissions

I can't believe how easy this was Thanks again dev

just download the free app called root checker. plus download voodoo OTA rootkeeper to save n backup your root file. so it can be restored after an Over the Air update.

I have been making a few changes tonight:
1. button to launch the backup app (instead of searching for the icon)
2. indicator of if the su file exists with correct permissions
3. indicator of if the SuperUser app is installed

These should take care of showing you if it has successfully rooted. I will update the OP with the new version once I am done.

I have updated the app to do the checks to see if everything is set up correctly. Would you try with the new version and let me know your results.

CHANGES: 3/3/2012
Added a button for opening the backup app.
Updated SuperUser app to the latest version (you would have gotten a market update anyway)
Added indicators for if the su binary is there and if it has the proper read/execute permissions.
Added indicator for if the SuperUser app is installed

Stuffed around for a while after installing this app and tried to confirm root access. Seemed that some apps reckoned I had root and some not so much.

Went to market and installed 'Busybox' by STEPHEN (STERICCSON) and root was perfect after this. Even 'Voodoo OTA RootKeeper' was happy after installing Busybox.

Edit: Forgot to mention. I have a TF201 running Android 4.03, Build 9.4.2.15

Thanks for sharing another way of rooting. I do love Viperboy's work. However, vipertime installed it's own version of busybox, and somehow caused the Asus backup application failing to function. It's always nice to know that there's another way to root.

And Please, do add on an Unroot option, and it'll be all perfect.
