    Hi guys,

    I have the Asus Transformer Prime for quite some time now and I never saw the advantage of rooting it, however I do feel the need to free up some of the internal memory and pass everything to my SD Card. Any alternatives on that? By the way, which SD Card do you recommend? Does it accept a 64GB card? Thanks in advance

    Depending on the file you want to move to a microSD card, you do not need root. I have heard good reports on 64GB cards just make sure to get it from a reputable source as they can be made to show more storage than they actually have.

    To move files like videos, music, photos etc, just open the file manager, long hold on the file you want to move, cut it, go to the folder you want to move it to, then there should be a paste option. Has worked well for me.

    Welcome to the forum! Yes, .24 is rootable using the same method as .21. Use this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1622628

    Method 3.

    We had 1 click rooting for about 2 weeks in November. ASUS is constantly fixing its holes for root. From Aug-Nov they were unrootable too.

    This uses ADB (Android Debug Bridge) part of the Android SDK (Software Development Kit).

    Here is a tutorial:

    http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...easy-tutorial/

    If you want an easier way to root ASUS is not the answer. They have also locked the boot loader on the TF201 and TF300.

    I add my Amen to what you have said. While browsing through this and other forums, it seemed that rooting was the thing to do. So I did. And all those apps like Titanium Backup and Superuser and all the rest worked... until the version of CWM which I was using got into a bootloop. My great tablet was, if not bricked, pretty useless. Fortunately, I found a place in CA that would fix the software glitch, and $100 later and a month later had my tablet back in working order (unrooted and with stock ICS from Asus). I'm happy as a lark finding themes and other mods that will work without my tablet being rooted

    Some of those who rooted found they couldn't get firmware updates. This may indicate that not enough research was done before rooting their device, mostly due to issues with later hardware versions of their Transformers.

    It seems that some people feel that rooting is a must. Consider these points:

    1. Ask yourself if there really is a good reason to root. Is there a must have app that won't install without a root?

    2. Many have, in the past, determined they needed to root in order to backup, (Titanium Backup). I feel that ASUS wisely included an app that took care of that in order to reduce the possibility of rooting related problems.

    3. Consider that the FW updates from ASUS have added value (AppBackup, SuperNote for example) that may reduce the need to root. I'm not even addressing custom ROMs. These value added apps and tweaks may have negated the original reason for the root so patience may pay off.

    4. Consider ICS (nuff said)

    5. Rooting has become a big part of the developers discussions but many of the posts are about a root that went wrong or messed with an update. I do feel for people who in some cases, at least temporarily, bricked their Transformers but keep that in mind

    I'm not recommending for or against rooting here but you should really consider why you want to root, have a good reason, and do your due diligence research before jumping into a potential quick sand pit.

    WHY? should be the first thing you ask.
    Because One that doesn't know, more than any, WANTS to know, regardless of consequence. Without this mentality the very topic at hand wouldn't exist. Desire and ambition are solely fueled by this mentality
