ASUS tells everyone to relax, locked bootloader on Transformer Prime being discussed

There was quite a stir over the weekend for those who were lucky enough to get their hands on the ASUS Transformer Prime. Turns out these users were greeted with a locked down bootloader… or so the internet is hearing. We’ve seen multiple review units with an unlocked bootloader, which leaves us wondering how much stock we should really put into there claims. ASUS, however, did leave a not on their Facebook page about it, saying:

Official statement on bootloader for the Prime coming in a bit. Hang on tight guys.

In the mean time, relax.

Stay tuned to see how this one unfolds, and be sure to leave your comments below.
