One of the best ways to expand the use of our devices is by being able to do what we wish to do with them. I hope to use my Asus Transformer for a long time. It's a phenomenal device with many options (as seen on SBKv1 devices with Ubuntu).
However, with SBKv2 devices, we seem to have hindered functionality and overall more caution. It isn't only about flashing custom ROMs and OSes. The fear of bricking a device is scarier for SBKv2 device since we do not have the means to use NVFlash.
So I want to propose an idea to you guys. How would you feel about organizing together as a community via petition/facebook posts/tweets to appeal to ASUS to release the Secure Boot Key? I feel as a community of tablet enthusiasts, we should allow our voices to be heard. It worked for the TF201, why not for us?
Link to Petition
We now have a petition. Let's organize to try to find a good goal for number of signatures and date of petition
The tentative date to tweet Asus is April 4th. Later tonight, I will post the various facebook and twitter pages of Asus, as well as other contact information
