    Well that didn't take long. Asus will provide an unlock tool ala HTC that will enable users to unlock and thus void the warranty on their equipment (nothing new there.)

    Here is Asus's Official statement


    The good news doesn't stop there. Ice Cream Sandwich will be rolling out to the Prime January 12th so that should make some customers very happy as well.

    Asus goes on to say:

    Glad to see Asus making most of their mistakes right. Hopefully my OG Transformer isn't far behind.

    at least it's something. if pc makers pulled this crap, they'd all have gone out of business by now, and apple would actually be top dog.

    as for ICS, freakin awesome. I'll be picking mine up in a couple weeks, so instant OTA!

    I fully agree that people need to take responsibility for bricking devices and there is no excuse for bricking a phone and then making a warranty claim on it.

    My only complaint is with a voided warranty, however, is that I have no recourse if there is a hardware problem. My first OG Droid had a hardware speaker failure that occurred months after I rooted it. My rooting it had nothing to do with the speaker failing. I simply wiped the SD Card, flashed the stock ROM, and got a new Droid at the VZW store which was rooted five minutes after I got home.

    Had they known I'd rooted the phone, I would have had no recourse but to purchase a brand-new phone. :frown:
