Folks at Asus have published a tool that allows you to unlock the bootloader on the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T tablet. In the past, Asus has already released bootloader unlock tools for all of its previous Android tablets including the OG Eee Pad Transformer, Transformer Prime and the budget priced Transformer Pad 300. Transformer Pad Infinity is a slightly tweaked version of the Transformer Prime with 1080p HD screen.
This tool lets you to install custom recovery utilities so that you can backup or restore your device or make other changes and it brings the full possibilities to give you full control over your Pad Infinity tablet. You can download the APK file of the bootloader unlock tool for the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity tablet file from here on the ASUS website under utilities section.
We strongly suggests you stay away from unlocking the bootloader. Asus also warns that using the bootloader unlock tool will void the warranty on the device. You should also remember that Asus is keep tracking the serial numbers that have been unlocked.
Here’s what Asus has to say about this tool:
1. Only suitable for Andriod4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS version.
2. Before you download, install, and use the Unlock Device App you acknowledge and assume complete risk to the quality and performance of this App, including but not limited to the following: once you activate the App you will not be able to recover your ASUS product (“Original Product”) back to original locked conditions;the Original Product with the activated App will not be deemed the Original Product; the Revised Product will no longer be covered under the warranty of the Original Product; the software of Revised Product will no longer be deemed the software of the Original Product and can no longer receive ASUS software updates; your purchased digital content may also be affected.
Let’s hope Asus does the same for its future tablets. .
