It's old and works only on 9.2.1.17 or .13 as far as I remember so even viperMod is better but worth try.

Help rooting. I tried everything...

Hi, i have read lots of threads and forums i have investigated and tested. I tried initially with "tf101 ics root.zip" i did the syncing and running of "run.bat" followed every step, and nothing. Made variations of the same process and nothing.

Then i tried with RazorClaw and a advice with "device lacks need file" appear.

Then i tried SparkyRoot and it read "Exploitable file not found".

I dont now what to do anymore, i just want to "Freeze" all the bloatware and crappy uninstallable apps that auto load on my Transformer.

i Got the Asus Transformer TF-101 with ICS 4.0.3.

I uploaded a screen print with firmware versions installed in bit.ly/MILGVv

Please help!

Thanks in advance

Do you even read through the thread before posting? Some posts above yours someone says it only works on 9.2.1.17 and below.

Not working for me :( NOOB!, I know!

Please help, is not running properly for me.

I do download ans unzip OneclickrecoveryV0.4.2
I reseted my TF101 to factory defaults
Enabled USB debug mode
Installed Asus sync on my Windows 10 laptop (also from ASUS). It detects my device.
I run on my computer with admin privileges "EasyRecoveryV0.42.bat"
When "manually" installing the adb drivers It says that the actual are newer and doesn't do that part
The device is listed as a long list of numbers
When the zergs are rushing (just kidding), it says:
"failed on '/data/local/tmp' - not a directory"
and then the message:
"adb server is out of date. killing...
* daemon strated successful * "
is shown many times,and a few more errors.

The device does not restart or do anything by it's own. I don't see blue bars or anything.

Ok, then I uninstalled asus sync, and everything looks nice until first reestart.

The 1st restart is ok, but after requiring the second one, prompting you to see a blue bar... the restart happen but the blue bar does not.

It looks like it¡s not making anything

oneclick recovery console says:
"
If you do, you might have a *very* shiny paperweight.
Continue? Y/n
starting, this will take awhile...
/dev/block/mmcblk0p4: cannot open for write: permission denied
"

From this on, I can't fix anything and the device is running like always

Any suggestion?

Android 4.0.3
compilation 9.2.1.27

Careful with root on 4.0.3 kingroot works 100% so then flash CMW and flash katkiss ROM will update your version to 4.4.4 and install superSU then factory reset to remove kinguser etc then use ES file explorer to remove any kingroot files put on the system then kingroot will be removed and you'll have standard SuperSU
