Give me an hour or so and keep a look out on my Twitter for those who want to test

EDIT: Anyone on .33? Could use some testers to see if the new root method works on HC too, that way my program doesn't have to support 2 root methods.

so you making a viperMOD PrimeTime for the TPSparkyRoot? it would be awesome because i have never rooted before!

What root metod is the best to get the ''best'' root on my prime? (ICS,4.0)

1.NachoRoot and then use OTA RootKeeper
2.TPSparkyRoot
3.viperMOD PrimeTime(will be updated for ICS)
4.zedomax 1-Click Script Root

Thx!

There was no need to post the same thing in 4 dev threads. But mine would be better than zedomax's, but I'm a little biased

I personally prefer either TPSparkyRoot or NachoRoot with RootKeeper, because they do not install other apps automatically (busybox, superuser) and the superuser app is not installed to the system directory (installs as a normal app).

But, I am also biased and some people like that convenience.

It is my opinion you should root the long way at least your first time so you stay familiar with adb.

Well, when you install a ROM on devices, it installs busybox for you, you just don't know it. But trust me, you want busybox. Asus has hardly anything in their toolbox. And there is nothing wrong with putting Superuser in /system/app, in fact, I find it better there because you have to go out of your way to delete it. You don't wanna accidentally delete it.

Updated to v3! Get your automated ICS root on!! Please post feedback so that I know how it's working and PLEASE let me know if you're on ICS or HC (build number, please!). If someone has a good write-up or post with driver install info, that would be great. I would like to put it in the 2nd post for users who need help!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

It works, no issues...I was on ICS after losing root.

Tried the other two methods without any success...but this one is the only one that works!!

here is a good write up on how to install drivers...
