    New to rooting. I have a Transformer Prime and a few questions.

    1. After rooting, do I have to manually install new firmwares, or will I receive over the air updates?
    2. I enjoy using certain apps that came with stock (Polaris Office and Splashtop for example). Can I retain these apps after rooting?

    1) It is my understanding you can get Root Access without unlocking the bootloatler ... if you did maybe OTA works ??
    2) Rooting is just that granting Root Access in itself it should delete nothing, in fact you should be able to backup Polaris and Splashtop with Titanium backup after rooting

    In this case, if I install an OTA update pushed by Asus, will I lose root access?

    They have been answered before but we can answer them again.

    OTA Voodoo Rootkeeper to save root / restore it after update. Keep Titanbackup around as the restore doesn't do permissions properly on SU but Titan will fix it. No issues - updated 3 times this way.

    No, if you root your prime you WILL NOT lose Asus OTA's. If you unlock the bootloader, I am not sure, my hypothesis is, you will not lose the Asus OTAs, however, I have not tried it, so I am not sure. If I was to bet I would say, not until you apply another custom ROM do you lose the OTA's and I have never figured out why you lose them them.
