This may be the first completely automated tool for getting root on any ICS Asus Transformer - TF101 / TF101G / TF201 / TF300X / SL101 for all ICS firmware including the latest TF101(G) 9.2.2.6 / 9.2.2.4 and 9.2.1.27 / 9.2.1.25 / 9.2.1.21, TF201 9.4.2.28, TF300T 9.4.3.30 and TF300TG 9.4.4.40.

You can use it on any SBKv1 / SBKv2 / SBKv3 tablet including B70 / B80 / B90 as it is not NVFlash based.

Your data stays intact and OTA functionality is not lost. No more need to downgrade to get root.

You can also use it for flashing CWM recovery or returning to Asus stock recovery ( to re-enable OTA ). (TF101(G),SL101 only)

DOWNLOAD - "1-Click Transformer Root_1.1"
(v1.1) (TF101(G),TF201,TF300T(G),SL101 - See note dated 16-Jun below)
OR
DOWNLOAD - "1-Click Transformer Root" (v1.0) (TF101(G),SL101 only)


UPDATE 16-Sep-2012 - CWM updated to Rogue XM Recovery 1.5.0 (CWM-based Recovery v5.0.2.8).

Please download latest version of tool and extract to a new directory and run the tool and select option 3 (Install CWM recovery).

UPDATE 21-Aug-2012 - Segmentation fault fully fixed; unroot improved; Superuser replaced with SuperSU.

UPDATE 16-June-2012 - Version 1.1 out. All tablets supported, all ICS. TF101(G),TF201,TF300T(G),SL101!


v1.1 Uses a new exploit method and is much quicker and simpler. For the TF201/300X, only root/unroot options exist, no recovery installation. Everything works for the TF101(G),SL101.

UPDATE 15-June-2012 - Version 1.0 out for TF101(G)/SL101 only. Added unroot option.

- Before running this tool please kill Asus sync or any other tool that may be starting any competing ADB instances.


Please post your experiences and vote in the poll above. It'll be very helpful to improve this tool! Please try both versions of the tool and get some help in this thread before voting NO
__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ___

1. If you're on a standard tablet and just need root (TF101(G),TF201,TF300T(G),SL101)

- Step 1. Download and extract
DOWNLOAD - "1-Click Transformer Root_1.1"
(v1.1) (TF101(G),TF201,TF300T(G),SL101 - See note dated 16-Jun above)
OR
DOWNLOAD - "1-Click Transformer Root" (v1.0) (TF101(G),SL101 only)
- Step 2. Run "1-Click Transformer Root.bat" and let it continue over multiple reboots.

- You'll be root. And with stock Asus recovery.



2. If you have root and need Asus stock recovery. (TF101(G),SL101 only)

Why? To enable OTA and/or return to stock like conditions

- Step 1. Run "1-Click Transformer Root.bat". (v1.0)

- Step 3. You'll be presented with a menu. Choose option (4)

- You'll have stock Asus recovery

3. If you have root and need CWM recovery. (TF101(G),SL101 only)

Why? Nandroid backups and restores. Debrick. Flexibility. Numerous other reasons. ( but no OTA)

- Step 1. Run the tool "1-Click Transformer Root.bat". (v1.0)

- Step 2. You'll be presented with a menu. Choose option (3)

- You'll have CWM Recovery

4. If you have root, you can also choose to unroot (TF101(G),TF201,TF300T(G),SL101)

Why? Taking your tablet back to Asus for warranty. Uninstalling all changes done by this tool.

- Step 1. Run the tool "1-Click Transformer Root.bat" ( Either v1.0 (TF101(G),SL101 only) or v1.1 (TF101(G),TF201,TF300T(G),SL101))

- Step 2. You'll be presented with a menu. Choose option (1)

- You'll be unrooted. This will delete all trace of changes made by this tool.

- If the tool finds the stock Asus recovery file for your tablet, it will also flash the stock recovery.

- Unrooting only makes sense if you're otherwise on stock ROM and obtained root using this tool.

5. If you have root, you can reboot into recovery (TF101(G),TF201,TF300T(G),SL101)

Why? So you don't have to press Vol and Power buttons etc to get into recovery / ROM Manager can't reboot to recovery in the Transformer.

- Step 1. Run the tool "1-Click Transformer Root.bat" ( Either v1.0 (TF101(G),SL101 only) or v1.1 (TF101(G),TF201,TF300T(G),SL101))

- Step 2. You'll be presented with a menu. Choose option (2)

- You'll be rebooted into your current recovery, whatever it is.

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ___

You will be presented with the menu only if you have root, else root in one step!

You can run it multiple times to retry if it fails for any reason. It cleans up after itself.



You'll need:

- At least 50% battery

- USB debugging enabled on your device

- To run this tool on any Windows PC with a working direct internet connection (Proxy users see post #2)

- Please allow any driver installation (DPINST) dialogs to succeed. If automated ADB driver installation doesn't work, you can manually install them from the adb-drivers directory

- Please run the tool as Administrator

- Here's a small tutorial for beginners.

If the tablet is not being detected by the tool, please try any or all of the following:

- Disable and re-enable USB debugging on the tablet with the cable connected and the tool waiting
- Disconnect and reconnect the cable to the same or different USB port while the tool is waiting
- Reboot the PC and run the tool again
- Wait upto 5 mins while the tool is waiting before pressing Control-C to stop execution and running the tool again.

Following are some stock Asus files, rest are in the second post. (TF101(G),SL101 only)

There's no need to manually download your firmware specific file from here. The tool should do it automatically.

Recovery blobs (TF101(G),SL101 only)
This section is for the TF101(G),SL101 only

There's no more any need to manually download your firmware specific file from here. The tool should do it automatically.

- These are the stock recovery files needed for switching recoveries between CWM and stock.

- If you're behind a proxy, then don't double click the tool, open a DOS command prompt and cd to the '1-Click Transformer Root' directory and type:

Code:
SET http_proxy=http://your_proxy:proxy_port
"1-Click Transformer Root.bat"
to run the program.

- If you don't have internet, then fret not, you can manually download the Asus stock recovery from the second post and extract it in the 'Source' folder. Even if you don't do this, you will still have root.

THESE FILES ARE NOT NEEDED FOR GETTING ROOT, ONLY TO SWITCH BETWEEN CWM AND STOCK RECOVERY

SWITCHING RECOVERIES FEATURE ONLY WORKS ON THE TF101/TF101G/SL101


These are the stock Asus recovery files:

Neat tool, but you should print some errors on screen if the checks fail. Otherwise it just looks like it's frozen at the step. The checks are a bit overwritten, but good job!
Unrooted to test and seems to work, but it failed the busybox check and ADB check a couple times and froze, you may want to simplify the .bat a bit.

Thanks for your feedback. I have updated the tool with some more descriptive output.

I also added in Slider support.

I shall soon be uploading all the Slider recoveries too.

EDIT - I believe there are no special Slider recoveries. They run the same firmware as the TF101.

Hi,

Can you run the updated tool and send me the full ouput copied as text?

You can replace the first line in "1-Click Transformer Root.bat"

@echo off

to

@echo on

before running and then capture the full output as text.

Update, it seems that recovery mode ADB may need another set of ADB drivers to work.

The symptom is when you boot into CWM recovery, adb can't seem to connect to the tablet but it can do so fine when the tablet is in normal mode.

So the tool may fail after installing recovery.

This is happening on a Slider.

If anyone else with a Slider or even TF101 can confirm this then great.

Can you do a:

adb shell

to your tablet when in recovery mode?

If this tool seems to get stuck in recovery and waits there forever, then you can try installing the drivers located here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1379875

Both the android_apxusb.inf and android_winusb.inf file

And please report your findings.
