    [ROOT] Using viperMOD PrimeTime v4.5 on TF101 B70 to root. Easy to do.

    As I'm not entirely happy with the stock backup app, I decided to root my tablet this afternoon in order to gain access to Titanium Backup Pro (requires root to run) which I've been using on my mobile for a long time. I have a stock Transformer TF101 B70 running the ICS upgrade.

    I simply followed the instructions contained in the thread found here: [TOOL][Updated 2.22.12]viperMOD PrimeTime v4.5 | Auto Root/Unroot/Busybox/CMW Flash! - xda-developers and used the viperMOD PrimeTime v4.5 Windows app to root. Make sure you use option 1 in the app. This DOES work for the TF101 as well as the Prime.

    It took less than 2 minutes from plugging the tablet into the PC via USB to having it rooted and up and running. This method works really well and first time without a hitch, providing the instructions are followed correctly and to the letter.

    Hope that helps someone.

    I had rooted my TF101 already, and then did not pay attention to an update-- it was the latest ICS OTA update from Asus-- which, naturally, unrooted my tablet...

    ... no problem, right? Re-root using the method I had just executed. No joy. Rats-- go looking for alternatives-- most were about HC, and not ICS, and none mentioned the latest ICS 4.0.3 ... tried several anyway. Still no joy.

    Then I found this thread, via Googling really odd combinations of search terms... and I thought: what the h*ll?

    When I had it rooted (for about an hour) I wisely had installed and used Titanium backup, so I was not worried about needing to wipe things & start over...

    ... but, your method here--- carefully paying attention (no dock, suppressing Asus sync, etc) worked.

    I tried option 3, as that was what the instruction screen suggested-- no joy, but no harm either.

    So, trying option 1, even though it was listed as for the Prime (TF202) and I had success.

    Kudos! A donation to follow (when I recover my PayPal pw)...

    Thank you, authors of Option 1, and any and everyone else who worked on this project.

    Edit: I see my sig now needs updating...

    Sounds like a topic for a new thread to me? I don't think I've seen a comprehensive list of differences, more of a spattering of facts across threads.

    Just did a search on "difference b60 b70 b80" and didn't see anything that looked like a comprehensive list.

    This is indeed a great tool for rooting. I already used it to root my TF a couple of weeks ago. Don't forget to install OTA Rootkeeper, OTA RootKeeper | AppBrain Android Market , so you can put root back after an update.

    Good point!! The Rootkeeper app is a must. It worked a treat for me when I lost root after the last ICS patch.

    I rerooted with the ViperMOD method again today after a factory reset and I still think it's the easiest way I've seen yet.

    I can confirm that the Linux version of Vipermod works extremely well also. I tried for several days to root my tf101 without success, and vipermod worked flawlessly using option 1 from my Ubuntu desktop.
