Problems With ASUS Transformer Prime Bootloader Unlock Tool

For many ASUS Transformer Prime owners, the bootloader unlock tool provided by ASUS just didn’t work. Every time it was used, it spat out this error:

An unknown error occurs, which may be a network connection issue.
Please wait and try again later

For a person who finds rooting and modding important, this could be a disaster. ASUS realized this, and offers official unlocks by people sending in their Primes. There is a “special repair process set up for the affected tablets,” so we can assume it’s an issue that affects specific tablets on the hardware level.

It’s not a good thing, though, to send off your tablet for what could be a month just to get it unlocked. I can imagine that’s a poor user experience. Even getting one repaired for a month sucks (I’ve been there). But it might be worth it for some people.
