The Asus EEE Pad Transformer has yet to hit US soil and it has only been out in the UK for a short amount of time, but thanks to a collaborative effort from Android hackers @PauOBrien and @BumbleDroid, it's already been rooted. The method is still very rough around the edges right now, and it's not ready for prime time use just yet - for example, there is no backup method (such as Nandroid) - but that should be coming down the pike soon.


This is great news for those looking to pick this little bad boy up once it's released in the US since a more stable method of gaining root (and possibly custom ROMs) will most likely be available by then.
