You can flash a rooted ROM

I have not been on the forum for a couple days so I will respond to a few things.

Supersu is not required, rootkeeper will work with superuser installed as well.

The best option I have seen for the next root is the google restore exploit, but it has yet to be adjusted for the asus devices.

I will help in any way I see possible to help figure a new root method out, or create a tool that is needed if a manual root method is found. Until then, reverting to ics, rooting, and upgrade seems to be the only route. Though I am vague on the details of that procedure.

We've had quite a bit of luck restoring root after the JB update for those who lost it. Hopefully the adb restore procedure can be tuned for our tabs.

I don't know how to revert to ICS from stock JB.
Could anyone explain or provide a link to a comprehensive thread ?

Thank you.

Hey, if you got a locked bootloader and no custom recovery, there is atm no way to get back to ICS, once you updated to JB on your prime.
With JB-Update Asus also updated the bootloader and you'll get a signature verification error if you try to flash ICS.zip...
after showing you this error your prime will boot jb again...

No good new

One more question : Why didn't they update the tool to unlock the bootloader ? They change their mind about giving this freedom to customers willing to use it ?

hehe, thats a question many people asking...me included...and there is no answer in sight..
im trying to find some smart dev, like sparky (asked a question about it 2 pages earlier, but unfortunately he missed it...think im gonna write a pm to him..) who will do some intensive research on this topic...

but no success so far...
maybe you check this out: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1764917


did you already try to unlock? Many people reported, that the tool is working with JB, too. (except you are one of "us" - unable to unlock, na matter what you try to do...not in ICS, not in JB, not with S/N, not without S/N)

...
"They change their mind about giving this freedom to customers willing to use it" - no, looks like nobody @ Asus cares about the prime users anymore (except Tien, of course!) So, no change, they never really wanted too, otherwise they wouldnt have developed this crappy tool, which has to communicate with a crappy server.

In fact, I never tried to unlock. It is good enough for me to root.
I was asking because it is a surprise to see that what was given in the past is not anymore.
It is probably that they don't care anymore. Poor customer service, I would say.

Yeah I might get pissed off enough to do this. I'm unlocked, have TWRP, and had root before doing a manual update from the sdcard. su was blown away. I wish there was a way to flash a root zip somehow. This whole thing is starting to get me pissed enough to flash some other ROM and start buying Nexus devices from now on. That Nexus 7 looks sweet but the keyboard dock on the prime is going to be hard to replace.
