Rarely is a device so easily rooted when it is first released. Just how easy was it to find out how to root the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity? As easy as using the same exact method from the Transformer Prime! That’s right, with zero modifications, you can use the same root method for your Infinity.

If you have any questions, just leave them in the comments!
InfinityRoot.zip – This is the required download for this rooting method. It contains all of the needed files
To start, we will get the tablet ready to connect to the computer. Your device should not be connected yet.
Setting Up Your Infinity
Go to Settings > Security and Check “Unknown sources” (OK to confirm)
Go to Settings > Developer options (OK to the prompt) and Check USB debugging (OK to confirm)
Plug your Pad into the computer.
Note: Upon connecting your device, your computer should automatically install the necessary drivers. You can see this occurring by the pop ups in the bottom right of your screen in the task bar. It should say that drivers for the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T have been installed. If it does not, we can install them manually soon.
Setting Up Your Computer
Download the InfinityRoot.zip file if you have not already. You can place it anywhere. I have it on my desktop for convenience.
Right click on it and select Extract All.
Choose a location if you want a separate location and click Extract.
Go to the start button and search “Device Manager” and select it.
Look for the device in the list that shows. It will most likely show up as Android 1.0 under one of the menus but it may show as something else. Note: If you see ASUS Transformer Pad TF700T under Portable Devices, your drivers are already installed, but you can still check to make sure.
Right click on Android 1.0 (or whatever you found) and click Properties > Driver > Update Driver and click browse My computer for driver software.
Navigate to the “Drivers” folder that was downloaded (inside the InfinityRoot folder). Click OK.
Click Next. It will then install drivers if they needed to be. You can close these windows when it is complete.
Rooting the Pad
Double click on RootDebugfs inside the folder we extracted. The batch file will open up.
Type “1″ and hit Enter to choose the Root option.
It reminds you about drivers. Click any key to continue.
It reminds you about enabling unknown sources and usb debugging. Click any key to continue.
It will then look for the device and start the root process. Your Pad will reboot a couple times.
In the command terminal, it will eventually ask if uid and gid are 0. You can see if they are in the lines just above this. Confirm that they are and type “y” and Enter.
It will then reboot again and your device will be rooted.
Congratulations on rooting your Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T!
