Asus has today released a utility to unlock the bootloader on its Transformer Prime tablet, enabling users to install a custom ROM on their tablet. When news first broke that the Transformer Prime's bootloader was locked Asus was lambasted by the homebrew community, and eventually agreed to provide an unlocking tool which was due in February. True to its word, Asus has made the unlock utility available on their website for download immediately, the link to which is in the source below. Usually we'd warn you about the dangers of unlocking and installing custom software, but Asus has provided a particularly harrowing warning on its website:
"Once you activate the [unlock app] you will not be able to recover your ASUS product ("Original Product") back to original locked conditions;the Original Product with the activated App will not be deemed the Original Product; the Revised Product will no longer be covered under the warranty of the Original Product; the software of Revised Product will no longer be deemed the software of the Original Product and can no longer receive ASUS software updates; your purchased digital content may also be affected.
You also acknowledge ASUS does not guarantee service satisfaction to any Revised Product, including events involving paid service requested by you to be performed to the Revised Product.
Furthermore, such repaired Revised Product will not be covered under the warranty of the Original Product; the software of the repaired Revised Product will not be deemed the software of the Original Product and will not receive ASUS software updates.
It is strongly advised that you avoid activating this App unless you fully understand and accept the risks that may arise."
