Default [HOW-TO] Root Jelly Bean

For all those people who did not use OTA RootKeeper to keep root before upgrading to JB, there is a way to root the device.

You need to be unlocked for this to work.

1) Boot into fastboot method. Flash custom CWM JB recovery from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...19&postcount=1
2) Flash CWM-SuperSU.zip from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...15&postcount=1

This should give you root back. You can test using Root Checker.

Fresh Install:

Seems without unlocking someone can downgrade from JB, root and then upgrade back to JB again. All data is lost, but the device warranty remains in tact .

[TIP] Downgrade from JB to 0.30 works!
History: Some Casio B.O.S.S. things -> Palm Professional -> Visor Prism -> Treo 300 -> Treo 600 -> Treo 650 -> Treo 800w -> HTC Touch Pro -> HTC Touch Pro 2 -> HTC HD2 -> MyTouch 4G Slide (HTC Doubleshot).
Present: Google Nexus 10, ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T, HTC One (M7), HTC Sensation 4G & G-Slate (LG Optimus Pad).
============================

I'm getting a <waiting for device> response with fastboot. Yet the drivers are installed, the TF700 is in fastboot mode (and plugged in) tried several USB ports a Windows XP VM with the same drivers, nothing. Can't get past this. If I try to boot into recovery I also noticed I get a red triangle and a dead Android. Help? :/ The device still boots normally thankfully. But no root.[COLOR="Silver"]

EDIT: Nevermind. Reinstalled Android SDK works fine!

Just saw that TWRP does not work with JB on the TF700. Oh well, I will do as planned and redo the cwm recovery tomorrow. Thanks for getting this fix out and making it available.

Just for people out there, connecting the tablet directly, not through the docked keyboard, fixes problems too, in general. I was having that problem too, with fastboot.

Absolutely flawless!! Thank you! This was by far the easiest way to root, for me at least, since Debugfs' root program decided not to work for JB. Anyways, thank you very much.

Good on you man. Worked like a charm, thanks. Just a tip for very literal people such as myself, superuser gets flashed via CWM.

Is CWM making usable backups on jellybean? I understand WTRP is not working yet.
