At the beginning of the year, Asus promised two things for the Transformer Prime tablet – an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (which is already out) and a bootloader unlock tool that would allow Android tinkerers to do fun custom stuff with this tablet (as they usually do with Android devices that don’t come with locked bootloaders).
Now we know when to expect that tool – in February. That’s according to Asus’ own Twitter account, and the information thankfully is more concrete than the “soon” we heard earlier this month.
Expect the custom ROMs and mods to start arriving a few hours after this tool has been released. So in a few days (or a month or so) you’ll be able to customize your Prime’s software in any way you please. Now you just need to hold on to that patience for a little while longer.
