Hi!

Seeing as Asus released the unlock tool for the Transformer Prime, we made a Clockworkmod Recovery image for it.

One caveat:
This uses the internal sdcard for the Prime. So you won't be able to mount usb mass storage, or use the MicroSD. But that should not be too much of an issue.

Download link and instructions on Androidroot.mobi.

Enjoy!

It should work as well, I often did this on my phone, standard dd linux command. Download the file directly on your TFP, and run Terminal Emulator, su, and the dd command, just need to modify the path to blob file.

Confirmed: works as attended using Terminal Emulator.

-Download blob file. I renamed it as CWM.blob as moved it tyo /data/local

-Run Terminal emulator then :

$su
# dd if=/data/local/CWM.blob of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4

(change bold part according to your own situation)

You'll have a couple of secondes to wait, then a message saying that xxx bytes were copied.

Put TFP off, reboot by pressing Vol Down + Power until you see some line of text, and then WITHIN 5sec press Vol Up ..

Here you are.

No more OTA when boot is unlocked. That's part of the agreement you sign before unlocking it.

Ther will be zip files to update through Recovery don't worry about that.

Once in terminal emulator:

su

dd if=/data/local/blobfile of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4

Modify this part depending where is the file you downloaded is... It it is in /sdcard/Download or anywhere you put it after download.

this may be a really newbie question, but i ask more just to understand. there are a few (or alot) of us that simply type and do what the instructions tell us to do.

when you type in that DD command, what exactly are you doing. are you essentially redirecting the bootup prompt to point to the CWR? if not, then what.

thanks.

dd = copy from / to, and overwrites

Nice. Doing nandroid backup now.

However i started out with the fastboot method, and it looked like it worked, but it still booted up in stock recovery...

Blob method worked fine though...
