Root Transformer Prime ICS 4.0.3 with SparkyRoot APK

Sparkym3, one of the XDA developer team member has released SparkyRoot tool for all Transformer Prime firmwares, which provides very simple method of rooting just by installing apk with a single click button.

According to developer:

This root app has been confirmed working on current OTAs for the ASUS Transformer (TF101) and Transformer Prime (TF201) Devices.
This includes v9.4.2.15 for the TF201 and v9.2.1.11 for the TF101.

A recent user reported that v9.2.1.17 on TF101 may have fixed this exploit but I have no further confirmation on this.

This method (as it is currently implemented) no longer works with the v9.4.2.21 ROM on TF201.
