If you’ve marked November 9 on your calendars for the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime’s big release day, you’re going to have to wait it out a little longer, as the release date has been…
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer was one of the mean machines that disrupted the tablets market and opened many consumers' minds to various other possibilities for Android tablets. The Transformer is the predecessor of the quad-core Eee Pad Transformer Prime and was the device that started the Transformer legacy. Many were delighted by the tablet's great style and functionality–it's a notebook and a tablet fused together, a transformer.
What's making people more excited is the prospect of being able to load it up with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Now that would make this a tough device on the outside with sweet ICS filling on the inside.

In this guide, we will walk you through the steps in rooting your Asus Transformer with the use of NachoRoot, a tool that can root the Asus Transformer regardless of whatever firmware is running on the tablet.

To root your Asus Eee Pad Transformer using the instructions in this guide, you will need to have the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) installed on your computer. Once you have ADB on your computer, you can proceed to the installation instructions below.
