It's old and works only on 9.2.1.17 or .13 as far as I remember so even viperMod is better but worth try.

Default Help rooting. I tried everything...

Hi, i have read lots of threads and forums i have investigated and tested. I tried initially with "tf101 ics root.zip" i did the syncing and running of "run.bat" followed every step, and nothing. Made variations of the same process and nothing.

Then i tried with RazorClaw and a advice with "device lacks need file" appear.

Then i tried SparkyRoot and it read "Exploitable file not found".

I dont now what to do anymore, i just want to "Freeze" all the bloatware and crappy uninstallable apps that auto load on my Transformer.

i Got the Asus Transformer TF-101 with ICS 4.0.3.

I uploaded a screen print with firmware versions installed in bit.ly/MILGVv

Please help!

Thanks in advance

Do you even read through the thread before posting? Some posts above yours someone says it only works on 9.2.1.17 and below.
