Root Asus Transformer Prime TF201 After Jellybean 4.1.1 Update

If you had root on the ASUS Transformer Prime TF201 before updating to Jellybean 4.1.1 you will realise that you end up with a partial root after upgrading. However the good news is that you can restore full root access on your ASUS Transformer Prime TF201 quite easily.

Note: i did have a root backup created by OTA Root Keeper, however trying to restore that after upgrading was not successful. I’m not sure if trying to do that played a part in the partial root i had after upgrading or not.

First on your Transformer Prime load the settings app, go to Development options and enable USB debugging, then connect your Transformer Prime to the PC with the USB cable. If you are asked to install drivers download the drivers here.

The easy way to re-root your Transformer Prime TF201 on Android Jellybean 4.1.1

Since writing this tutorial many months ago, a newer, easier and automated root method has been discovered for the Asus Transformer Prime on Jellybean 4.1.1 and various other devices. You do not have to have an existing partial root now either, you can root a completely stock Transformer Prime.

To root your Transformer Prime, simply download Motochopper, then open the run.bat if you are on Windows. You will be informed that you need the usb drivers installed, and that you must have USB debugging enabled as i mentioned above.

Asus Transformer Prime Root

Once you have done this press any key to continue and you should have a fully rooted transformer prime in around a minutes time.

The older way to re-root your Transformer Prime on Jellybean 4.1.1

To do this you will need the Android SDK installed, after installing you will need to open a command prompt window and navigate to the platform tools folder.

As i installed the Android SDK to C:\Apps for me this would be

cd C:\Apps\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools

Root Transformer Prime Command Prompt

Now download and unzip them to your C:\ drive in a folder called “sufules”

Root Transformer Prime 2

Run the following commands in the command prompt window to push the superuser files to your Transformer Prime

adb push C:\sufiles\su /data/local/tmp/
adb push C:\sufiles\Superuser.apk /data/local/tmp/
adb push C:\sufiles\busybox /data/local/tmp/

Now type:

adb shell

You should now be in a shell / terminal prompt on your device, type in the following commands

chmod 6755 /data/local/tmp/su
chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/busybox
chmod 644 /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk


cp /data/local/tmp/su /system/bin
cp /data/local/tmp/busybox /system/bin
cp /data/local/tmp/su /system/xbin
cp /data/local/tmp/busybox /system/xbin
cp /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk /system/app/


After your Transformer Prime re starts you should find you can grant applications root / super user access when the app request it.

Hopefully this will allow newbies and experienced users alike to re gain root on the Transformer Prime TF201 After Jellybean 4.1.1 Update, i was able to do so perfectly anyway.

Bad Piggies – New Android Game

Bad Piggies Logo

Bad Piggies is a new game that launched today from Rovio, the creators of Angry Birds. Bad Piggies is from the Pigs point of view this time, not the Angry Birds. The goal of the game is to create the ultimate flying/crawling/rolling/spinning/crashing device and pilot the pigs safely to the eggs!

Like Angry Birds i found the game is simple to pickup and play and soon becomes very addictive. The levels progressively get harder, however the fun factor keeps you coming back to solve the puzzles and progress through the game.

Best of all the game is free to download on Android Devices, that includes both the standard version and the HD version, i would highly recommend Bad Piggies, if you were hooked on Angry Birds you will soon be addicted to Bad Piggies!

Bad Piggies HD looks very nice playing on my 10″ Asus Transformer Prime Android tablet, as the game involves creating and not just firing birds or pigs in to random objects i have a feeling this will keep my attention even longer than Angry Birds did!

Bad Piggies Features:

● 60 levels crammed with flying/driving/crashing fun!
● 30 additional puzzles unlocked by three-starring levels!
● Free updates!
● 4 sandbox levels to stretch your creativity!
● Ultra-special, ultra-secret, ultra-difficult sandbox level to unlock by collecting all the skulls!
● 33 objects to create the ultimate machine: motors, wings, fans, bottle rockets, umbrellas, balloons, and much more!

I would highly recommend downloading Bad Piggies, the game is great fun that will keep you entertained for hours, the best part is its free!

Bad Piggies is a free download on the Android market.
