How to Root Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T

  1. Download the Debugfs root tool package from the official development page. The downloaded file will be in the compressed zip format.
  2. Extract the downloaded file to a convenient location on your computer.
  3. On the tablet, enable Unknown Sources under Settings » Applications. Also enable USB Debugging under Settings » Applications » Development options.
  4. Go to the folder where you extracted the root tool’s files.
  5. Double-click on the RootDebugfs file to start up the Debugfs root tool. Connect your tablet to the computer. Windows will ask where the drivers are located for the tablet, in which case point it to the Drivers\Android folder in the folder where you extract the tool’s files to install the drivers.
  6. Type in 1 in the root tool’s window, then following the instructions to root your Transformer Pad Infinity.
    Important: If you get a “Segmentation Fault” error after the “Testing Superuser..” step in the root process, say Yes to the message, and it will continue to root the device successfully.
  7. Now, you can give root access to apps whenever they request it by pressing the Allow button on the tablet when prompted.
    NOTE: If you do not get a prompt to give root access to apps, go to the Play Store and install Superuser, after which the root prompt will show up properly.

Your Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T is now rooted and you can use apps that require root access without problems. Have fun!

    I’m not sure what I did wrong… I followed the instructions precisely, and got the message congratulating me for rooting the tablet – but when I rebooted the tablet and opened Titanium Backup, I got the msg that the Tablet wasn’t rooted. I verified this through the Check Root app which told me the tablet was not rooted. I uninstalled and reinstalled Superuser which told me it was updating the binary, but then stalled and told me it failed. The tablet is brand new, only a few days old, and I could sure use some help figuring out what’s going on. Thanks!

    Does it work with the new jelly bean update?

    I had to go into “Superuser” and update binary, even though it was up-to date. Thanks!

    I’ve got this error message : “system partition was not found” on TF700T. What can I do ?

  • ricou

    Is there a way to install custom rom without unlocking first ? (I understood that rooting only allows you to install root application such as superuser, titanium backup or clockworckmod). So my question really is can you use clockworkmod with an still locked TFT700 ? I think the answer is NO but I would like to make sure before I throw away my warranty :-)

      Hi Ricou, the answer is no. I tried installing CWM on my unrooted Galaxy Nexus (any unrooted device will give the same result). When I tried to install a custom rom, it asked me to root the device first. So I think you need to root the device. The only thing that is holding me from rooting my Transformer is the stock apps like Polaris Office and Supernote. I don’t want to make these apps unstable by installing a custom ROM. Also, the device is new and most custom roms will have issues before they stabilize for this device.
