It's not as if Asus doesn't have a history of providing support to their tablet owners by enabling them to unlock their bootloaders.

Red face Can't see no prblem with 3.2.3 update
Updated last 2 days to WW 3.2.3 and still I have 59% left on last full charge and its battery stats says it 2 days 6 hrs.There's no lag or whatever, I I wiped/factory reset from 3.2.2 before and then I flash the raw file for 3.2.2 firmware. Fresh as new then updated via OTA to 3.2.3, The things is may maybe some left-over remnants of previous OTA updates,incremental updates that Asus releases. I started of with 3.11 can't remember when I first ran into my Asus Fonepad,OTA updates then finally I decided to give the full reset via SD flash and bamm!!! I can say no problems at all.BenchMarks are good and been playing NFS Most Wanted for long hrs no issues at all. But of course a boot loader unlock will be just fine to root it later,anyway enjoy folks and sure there will rooting in the few month to come.Good luck all

Angry Good and hopeful news
I'm working with the firmware patch and have managed to introduce the SU and Busybox binaries

Through ADB works perfectly, but (and still do not know why) superuser.apk not seem to work

Forgive my English but the Spanish educational system does not provide for more

Been running 3.2.3 for a few days now with no issues (ww version). Try a factory reset if you're having problems as it's most likely some app you've installed.

Rooted !!!
After several days of study and many trials, finally works perfectly.

Here is the link for those who want to try.

Currently there are no version 3.2.3 WW because no file to download from the asus website.
Upgrades coming to the tablet at the time and are generated specifically for your tablet and contain patches, no binaries.

File is the version 3.2.2 WW
Install from "droidboot" as any other firmware of asus

Sorry for my cherokee English

I'm really glad you were able to crack a root for fonepad users! However when trying to use this firmware update on my TW sku fonepad, it won't let me update to a different version. This is what it says
Code:
We verify checksum . . . . OK! Start check Image-SKU... 'user' - > need check
Check Image-SKU: "WW_epad' Device-SKU: 'TW_epad' . . . FAIL!!!
Do you have any ideas on how we could either get other models of Fonepad's to switch regions, or how we could root other firmware's raw files?

Nice work! Working well. I just flashed on top my previous 3.2.2_ww. Easy and no trouble. (Y)

//EDIT
It seems like its not fully rooted yet, it still not allow me to access RAM. Memory editing fail to gain rootaccess it says.

//EDIT2
RAM access seems like having problem due to x86 & arm difference, not because of the root.
