And currently this root app supports the following firmwares and prime's type:
  • v9.4.2.15 for the TF201
  • v9.2.1.11 for the TF101
And as for v9.2.1.17 is reported to have get rid this exploit, however the developer can't confirm the report.

SparkyM3 work is based on the busbox exploit found by another XDA member forum, rhcp0112345. And in the next release, SparkyRoot apk will include unroot method along with rootkeeper utility. Anyway let's root Transformer Prime ICS 4.0.3 using SparkyRoot APK.
