Good news from Asus for Transformer Prime users
Asus announced that it is working on a bootloader unlocking tool. But with this comes a couple of downfalls. The first is obvious: the warranty is voided. The other con to unlocking the bootloader is that Google movie rentals will be disabled. This might only affect some users, but we’re confident that some Android genius will find a way to get it working once unlocked.
The company also confirmed that it will begin rolling out an Ice Cream Sandwich OTA, worldwide for the Transformer Prime, starting January 12th. This is certainly great news for those of you that bought a Prime, and hopefully Asus will continue this trend into the new year.
So, are there any Transformer Prime users out there? How happy are you that Asus is unlocking the bootloader? Ready for ICS? Be sure to leave a comment, and let us know what you think!
