So, I've been fooling with puters since my Altair kit in 1977. Yep, F.O.G.
I bought an Archos 80 G9, took it back to Staples.
Exchanged for a Nexus 7, took it back to Staples.
Exchanged it for a Transformer TF300T. Kept it.
I rooted both of the first two machines with no problems.
I cannot root this ASUS XFormer TF300T to save my soul. I bricked it once, got through that, now I'm gunshy.
Is there a method that actually WORKS for ROOTing this puppy?
It's on Android 4.1.1 and APPEARS to be on firmware 10.4.2.9-21020809 (if that's right).

Just so you don't think this is a dead forum I thought I would post a quick reply to let you know that this is the TF101 (original Transformer) forum. The TF300 forum can be found here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/asu...-infinity-300/
In any case, It's always good to meet another tablet addict and I'm glad you are enjoying the TF300. It's a great tablet for sure.08-27-2012 12:37 PMLike 1
- It all depends on how you plan to use your tablet. I personally am not interested in a 7 inch tablet so I haven't seriously considered the Nexus 7. My tablet use spans work and play and the tf101, when paired with the keyboard dock, is uniquely capable of handling both really well. The tf101 without the dock is still a nice tablet and $239.99 is a great price so it's hard to go wrong there.
On the other hand, the tf101 might not get Jellybean and it almost certainly will not get whatever comes out after that. The Nexus 7 will be getting the latest and greatest updates for at least a couple of years so it will stay current for much longer than the tf101.
I hope this helps. If you have any specific questions about the tf101 feel free to fire away.09-11-2012 11:00 AM

- Like vito2000 said, it all depends on what you'll use it for. I have the 101 and there's no way I'd trade for the nexus 7. I like the nexus but I keep movies and media on micro sd's. No expandable memory on the 7 was the dealbreaker for me. I'm also not so sure that the 101 wont get jellybean. It got ICS fairly quickly (that's relative though in the android update world.....LOL). I also wanted the 10 inch screen. I watch MLB.tv and Netflix, etc. If I'm going to watch on a tablet, I want a larger screen. 7 inches isn't much larger than many phones now.
