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, itís already been rooted. The method is still very rough around the edges right now, and itís not ready for prime time use just yet Ė for example, there is no backup method (such as Nandroid) Ė but that should be coming down the pike soon.

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