Thanks! quick question. Will this be converted into an apk or app for one-click type method? for people with no immediate access to PC. since I've gotten my Ipad then now Prime, I haven't ever had a need to use my almost 10yr. old PC..lol. its slow as molasses. that's why I jailbroke my Ipad so i wouldn't need to connect to PC for iTunes for media n stuff.

just asking

Not possible at this time, will investigate root via app once I have a prime in hand, no guarantees however.

Don't really need a "fast" computer for ADB lol. It just needs a USB port.

sounds good enough. thanks again. no big deal. just wondering.

if you knew how long it took for my PC to boot up and open an app, you'd ask also.. It does have usb ports, its not that old..lmao. its all good. still deciding if I want to give it a shot now or wait till after ICS.

Very nice work. Is there any way to revert this root?

For everybody considering doing this, do note that ICS is scheduled to release 12 January. Trying to update/upgrade a rooted/hacked tablet MIGHT BRICK your Prime.

So it could be wise for the majority of users to wait untill ICS before trying to root.

mount system, delete su

Why would it brick if they just installed su (really dont know, would like to look into preventing it)

Process went flawlessly. Thank you jcase. :D

I must say the build.prop and standard gps.conf are decidedly empty, weird.

I'm not that into programming/rooting, therefor my emphasis on might. For the majority of users it might be just safer to wait those 9 days until ICS.

Since ASUS uses BLOBs for updates, it will most likely just over-write the system folder anyway. No more 'SU', but also no brick!
