Asus has made available the tool required to unlock the bootloader on the Transformer Pad TF300 device. This will be a welcome relief for many who are keen to install custom firmware on the device. With the bootloader unlocked, there is no stopping users from installing other versions of Android, or maybe even other operating systems if they wish.
However, there is a small price to be paid for all the freedom that comes with an unlocked bootloader; the standard company warranty will be deemed null and void. Asus will only continue to provide all the software assistance as long as the bootloader is intact.
Surely, this won’t deter many out there who have been waiting eagerly for Asus to release the unlocking tool. With the Transformer Pad Infinity next in line, a similar sort of thing is also expected for the new upcoming tablet.
