This news is for the more technical minded or tinkering types. If you aren’t sure what a bootloader is, no problem. This news won’t really matter to you most likely. Essentially a bootloader tool unlocks your TF300 tablet so that you could install custom recovery utilities. This allows you to backup your tablet or restore it among other changes. People often like to install other operating systems on their tablet including different versions of Android.
You can download the unlock tool from Asus here. That link takes you to the “download” section and then you need to click on “utilities” which is where you find the unlock boot loader. A word of caution. Unlocking a bootloader does void your warranty. Here is a quote from the official Asus site:
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.
You also acknowledge ASUS does not guarantee service satisfaction to any Revised Product, including events involving paid service requested by you to be performed to the Revised Product.
Furthermore, such repaired Revised Product will not be covered under the warranty of the Original Product; the software of the repaired Revised Product will not be deemed the software of the Original Product and will not receive ASUS software updates.
It is strongly advised that you avoid activating this App unless you fully understand and accept the risks that may arise.
