Options:
1) Fresh Root - This is to do a clean root on your stock Asus JB rom or any other custom rom. Great for any users that lost root during an upgrade.
2) Fresh Start - This will give you a clean start by wiping your system partitions (backup your data) then flashing a stock JB image. After the package will do a clean root to the TF201 (Make sure you download the JB update for your region from the Asus site then extract and place the "blob" file in the same folder as this package and rename to "system.blob"

!!! This is for users with from any region with unlocked bootloaders only !!!

I made this because a few users have had trouble with root after the JB update from Asus. What I have made is an automated package that includes the root binaries and the the Team Win Recovery. From FASTBOOT this package will flash a custom recovery then root it. If a previous broken root from an update exist it will remove the old broken root and re-root it. Simple as that!

Additionally I have made another option in this package called "Fresh Start" and what this will do is wipe you tablet clean (backup your data) then flash a new image of JB. Once completed it will flash the custom recovery and root it before you even sign-in and set up the tablet. I recommend this as it will make the tablet nice, clean & speedy.

This assumes you have the correct drivers installed for your device, if not I recommend my Universal Naked Drivers Here

Thanks for the feedback, being its automated you just have to get use the on screen instructions. I wiped and re-flashed, then rooted about 30x in a row with this package so I thought I would release to others to make their life easier.

If anyone has suggestions for any instructions that were not clear enough let me know and I can update for clarity.

You have missed the step that mounts the /System from recovery. This has to be done manually then ADB can push ROOT. It said write failed so i assume this is where you got stuck.

1) Make sure you run as "Admin" just in case
2) When you boot into the custom recovery, you must select the "Mount" icon then then select system. After then you continue with the batch file and all should be good.

I can confirm that this worked w/ my TF201. Thanks a bunch!

I was unlocked and had root plus a "backup" according to Voodoo OTA RootKeeper. I manually installed the JB update via sdcard and lost root plus all signs of root. Being unlocked, I used your method in Win7 (parallels virtual machine on mac) running a shell as admin and everything worked without any hitches. I have root and have verified by Voodoo OTA, Root Explorer, and Titanium Backup.

A big thanks to you for this. I now have root again!

For anyone having issues with the ADB command I would manually try ADB before this package. This package assumes you have your drivers working in FASTBOOT & ADB. Or when you get the recovery flash and you have booted the recovery open a second prompt and try the "adb devices" command before this package pushes root.

I see that you have quite a few amount of post and would think you have some experience, since you are still having issues I would say that the drivers are dirty or something else weird is going on.

You have mentioned you get the recovery flash then booted, at this stage can you go to your device manager and take a screen shot of the Android device? You may have to repoint the device to the drivers but non the less a screen shot would help.
