Secure Boot Key
The Transformer employs the Tegra's Secure Boot Key (SBK) feature. Tablets manufactured before a certain date all use the same SBK ("SBKv1"); its value is now publicly known. Tablets produced after that date use a different, unknown SBK ("SBKv2", possibly different on every unit). Tablets can be distinguished by serial number (from the original packaging, and printed on a sticker on the tablet's bottom edge; it is not the same serial number reported by Android's "About tablet" screen):
0x1682CCD8 0x8A1A43EA 0xA532EEB6 0xECFE1D98

Getting root access
Mods & Tweaks
- Part of the internal memory is mounted as /sdcard and thus all appdata will be installed there.
- When installing a lot of games it will therefore quickly be filled up.
- (See SDext2Internal Script for more information)
- There are two ways of installing and running Ubuntu (or other non-Android Linux distribution) on the Transformer:
- Installing it in its own dedicated partition of the tablet's internal flash memory, and booting it instead of Android. This requires access to APX mode with nvflash.
- Installing it in a subdirectory of the existing partition, and running it via chroot, within the Android environment. This method is compatible with all Transformers.
- Short descriptions on both ways and links to threads on the topic are below.
Ubuntu on internal storage
- (See How to install Ubuntu)
- Chroot is a Unix mechanism that can be used for running one Linux distribution on top of another. See Wikipedia:chroot for a general description.
