    [CONFIRMED]Fix to gain root after 8.6.5.21 update

    GUIDE COPIED FROM HERE AS A POSSIBLE FIX, UNTESTED BY ME, REPORTS OF SUCCESS FROM OTHERS


    1) Download http://www.multiupload.com/X65RBVD2MB

    2) Unzip so you have just have "WW_epad-user-8.6.6.19.zip". Keep this zipped and copy to root of external SD.

    3) Put another copy of the same file on your external SD card and name it "EP101_SDUPDATE.zip"

    4) Put both files "EP101_SDUPDATE.zip" and "WW_epad-user-8.6.6.19.zip" on the root of your internal SD card.

    5) Power down your TF

    6) Power up into recovery - by pressing the power button and volume down button. Then press volume up when instructed by the screen.

    7) You should now see the Android guy with some gears turning. This is good, actually this is GREAT! This will go on for a minute or so and then the device will reboot on its own. It will then go to the boot screen and you should see a bar showing you the progress of the update.

    8) Once it has completed, install RazorClaw and root your device.

    9) Do your happy dance because you are finally rooted like all the cool guys!



    The above is "as is" and just a possible idea for those who want to try for root again - remember there are always risks involved when doing things like this - your choice, your tablet, your responsibility !

    Quite right - all this rootin business sounds decidedly dodgy to me!
    Just spare a thought for all those hard working folks at Asus trying to keep us all safe & stable

    @Detection - I've been following/reading posts about rooting. But I can't seem to resolve my question to a yes/no status...so here goes:

    Can I root my B90 Transformer? Better to wait? I'm somewhat unclear and would appreciate facts/your opinions/experiences/etc...

    I have the latest firmware OTA update sent last week...

    @janner43 - How're things out Devon-way? I got a jar of Wilkin & Sons Lemon Curd for Christmas, it's awesome on toast, have you heard of it? (You're probably thinking that Yanks are "a strange lot" based on my fascination with what amounts to British jelly...)

    Howdy
    Devon is grey, cold & wet. I am overweight & over-here
    Not heard of that particular brand - but I am sure it is good. We tend to have lemon curd in tarts here. Oh & just so as you know, what you call "jelly", we call "jam". I know, " 2 peoples seperated by a common language"

    I expect Texas is warm & sunny...
