    Hey, just wondering if I could get some advice on rooting my TF300T. I want to be able to use my PS3 controller through Bluetooth with my emulators, but I've been told this can only be done by rooting the device. Any tips on the best way to go about doing it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I've used this tutorial for rooting my tablet: How to root Asus Transformer TF300T The process was simple and at the and, the tablet was rooted with success. However, the @leeshor procedure looks more simple.

    I wouldn't do it but that's me. The benefits are that you gain more control over what you can do with the tablet but you should do your homework and have a reason. If you have to ask you probably aren't ready yet. ;)

    leeshor, that fix did work for a while. Now since the new updates, it is no longer recognized right away. I can still use it plugged in through USB, but wireless is better. Any other ideas, guys? Edit: no longer recognized at all as a Bluetooth device.

    There was another small patch issued. Maybe there's still work to be done. ;)

    Hey guys,
    I have JB 4.2.1. Can someone please provide rooting instructions for this version? I managed to unlock my bootloader. I just can't find anything on how to root with 4.2.1.
