Transformer Prime bootloader unlock tool coming in Feb

The unlocking of the bootloader will now be possible for the Asus Transformer Prime as they will provide an unlock tool by February

An official tool for unlocking the bootloader on the Transformer Prime will be made available in February as it was confirmed by Asus on Twitter. Although the Company is not exactly providing any date for the release of the tool but at least the Transformer Prime owners will be sure about the fact that they will be able to unlock the boot-loader within a few weeks or so.

Originally Asus had already promised that the tool will be made available after upset customers lashed out in January. The unlock bootloader will allow the users to install custom ROM’s kernels however it also comes with several consequences.

This consequence was already announced by Asus earlier this year. They have mentioned that unlocking the boot-loader will void Asus’ warranty and some services which include Google’s video rental application may also not work properly.
