I'm just writing this quick (somewhat) noob-proof guide, because some people are asking questions still.

Requirements: 8.6.5.19 WW Firmware version (or one with the App Backup application)

Get Root:

1. Download and install RazorClaw app on your device (http://androidroot.mobi/2011/11/14/introducing-razorclaw-v1/)
2. After install run the app, read the info and press "Root me nao!"
3. If successful, SuperUser app should appear in the app list (This needs to be updated via Market link)

Note:

--install option is not working for some reason on TF101G and su needs to be installed manually after temp root .

Install Custom Recovery (CWM):

0. This comes after rooting, not before!!!
1. Download Recovery Installer app on your device (Link by gnufabio)
2. Install app, run, click to install recovery
3. Device reboots, and if successful, it installs recovery and boots back into OS.

Install Custom Rom:

0.Download the ROM and check MD5sum (always do that) - free programs canb be found everywhere to check. When done, put it on your MicroSD card, not the internal memory (therefore MicroSD card needed )
1. Reboot to CWM you just installed (I used Transformer reboot to recovery app)
2. BACKUP!!! current ROM (click on backup/restore option in CWM) - navigate with volume buttons, power button.
3. When backup finished, choose Install .zip from SD Card, choose the file you have downloaded - wait for the process, then reboot.
4. Done

- More information regarding flashing ROMs, addons can be fount in the Development forum.

If you want to (Do it! ) - Thank (and buy a beer) to all the developers, who made this possible!!!

Followed these steps and worked flawlessly! Running overclocked 1.5ghz on Revolver ROM / Clemsen 21 kernel with my newly rooted B7O SBK2. Smokin fast, no force closes, and smooth as silk. RayMan and his team at Android Root Mobi are great! I was shocked to see the breakthrough in rooting SBK2 devices yesterday. Jumped on it and it's the easiest root and custom ROM install I have ever done (previous experience with Nook Color, Viewsonic Gtab, Acer A500). Installed automatic Airplane mode app and getting amazing battery results. Keyboard doc is performing great too!

Oh wow thanks! I originally just thought the B70+ can just only be rooted and not be able to install a custom recovery and custom rom too.

This is awesome. It makes my purchase of a TF that much sweeter.

Yes, this is the one I was referring to above. It works well for me. When using CPU Spy app, I am getting great "deep sleep" results using Auto Airplane Mode app.

Excellent root guide
Just "rooted" my TF; so smooth I attempted it twice! Couldn't believe it was so painless. Congrats and kudos to all involved. Just one simple question, most likely been asked before so I apoligise in advance; when firmare is updated, does device have to be re-rooted or will it carry over?

I rooted and installed Revolver rom on my B70 a few days ago using this method and did a and factory reset, wipe cache and wipe dalvik cache before updating the zip. Everything works fine though, but is this the correct procedure? For future falshes: do I need to wipe again in CWM after the zip update? Thanks.
