    Will come after ICS release in the next 2 weeks the dev said on XDA.

    Then Asus will unblock bootloader - voiding warranty if you elect t use the tool to do so. Which I will I am sure. But root is more important right off the bat.

    Haven't looked around but is there anyone working on a recovery? I'm sure this will come quickly after but didn't know if there were any developers working on a recovery

    Not sure on recovery yet... I just got root and here is how I did it on my PC

    Download Vipers zip files here

    For PC ***** like me, here is what you need to do to install drivers and get root!!

    -right click computer
    -opens system properties and select Hardware tab
    -select device manager tab
    -double click the ? mark next to the Asus android devices
    -select driver tab
    -update driver
    -when wizard opens select "no,not at this time" to bypass wizard wanting XP disk install from a specific location so you can manually choose location
    -pick where you put the drivers by navigating to the provided drivers folder and pick Android directory in the drivers folder provided
    -let them install
    -reboot computer
    -attach Asus tablet
    -click the viperMod primer tool and viola...

    Root bitches!
