It comes with an AC adapter and a charging/data cable which can plug directly into the tablet, though it does still use their proprietary cable connection since it plugs into the same connector that the keyboard dock uses (the other end is male USB). Using proprietary charging cables is not unheard of - Samsung and Apple have done this; I don't personally ...

No, it does not. The only USB ports are on the keyboad dock. The tablet itself has: A microSD card slot A mini HDMI port A 40-pin docking/charging/USB transfer connector An audio jack Source: CNet's review of the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer

Android comes with a basic video player called "Movies", although it might not show in the application list for some devices. To use the built-in player, you need to use the Gallery or a file manager to invoke the Movies app on the movie file you want to play. Alternatively there are many alternative movie players on the Market. Here are a few threads to ...

There's a paid app called ePrint, which I believe works locally to printers attached to a wireless network (printers themselves don't need to be wireless) and doesn't appear to use a cloud service or need a PC in most cases. They have a free ePrint version that you can use to test the functionality before you pay for the full ePrint version. Next there's ...

In the Market settings you can add a PIN to protect purchases; that should lock them out effectively enough. I don't know of anything offhand to prevent all installs, though. I would assume you'd need to be rooted for an app to intercept and prevent install attempts. If you are rooted, you could use something like Titanium Backup to back and uninstall the ...

It looks like there's been a little work porting SVNKit to Android (see this), but actual source code isn't sitting around for anyone to use yet. It's a little bit incredibly gross, but you could try introducing another syncing setup. Something like Dropbox to store and sync files on your phone, and then commit the changes when you get to a machine with an ...

The tablets in Asus Transformer line (including TF 101, Prime TF 201, and Pad 300) do not have a cellular modem, so they will only work on WiFi. WiFi is a universal standard and will work just fine in any country, provided that your router supports the 802.11 b/g/n specification.

Solved. ASUS released the new firmware in its website. Flashing it unbricked my device: Download the stock firmware from ASUS’s official website. On the website, select Android in the OS drop down menu, then select Firmware, and download the latest firmware. Extract the downloaded firmware file. You will get another archive file. Extract this one as well ...

More to come soon. More information and source are here: ...

You can solve this issue either from the Android side or from the Windows side: From the Android side Tap your device "menu" button, and select "settings"; Tap "Wireless & networks"; Tap "Wi-Fi settings"; Tap your device "menu" to bring up extra options and select "advanced"; Tap "Use static IP"; Fill in your local network static IP details and dns ...

This is really a continuation of @Zuul's answer, to cover the DNS settings in Android 4.0+ (ICS), which is a little harder to find IMO. AFAIK Zuul's answer covers Android <2.3 settings. From the Android side (Android 4.0+ ICS) Settings WiFi (click on word "WiFi", not ON/OFF switch) Press and hold (long tap) your wireless network until dialog pops up ...

When you root your device you're gaining administrator access to it (root). Nothing more nothing less. So, unless you install a third party ROM, you will continue to receive updates and be able to use the source code you download. One small issue, updates may unroot your phone if you install them. Some useful reading on this subject: What does “to root ...

They're most of the time baked right into the monolithic Linux kernel (or sometimes available as loadable .ko kernel modules located in /system/lib/modules/). Note: Linux kernel modules are build-specific and cannot be interchanged across devices, different firmware versions. See the Wikipedia entry for Linux kernel modules

I do see what you are talking about. In my YouTube app (ICS version) I can see several categories under "Browse", where it seems movies would fit in, but this category is non-existent. I do know that there are many videos on YouTube that are "Not available for viewing on mobile devices", and I think this is what's happening in this case. For example, ...

The Eee Pad Transformer will use the battery of the dock to both power and charge the tablet so long as it is connected. You can see this when docked and on battery because the tablet shows its battery as "charging". This gets the most use out of the tablet because when you undock it, it is most likely to have more charge than the dock. When docked and on ...

When you say memory do you mean storage capacity? As far as im aware there is no way to increase the 1GB memory it is supplied with. EDIT : This site states 32GB expansion limit for SD card, which seems like its porbably correct : http://www.techwench.com/asus-eee-pad-transformer-review/

The Prime uses a proprietary cable, but it supports a USB connection to a computer via that cable (which you can see in this image from Engadget which I posted in another question). The fact that the connector isn't a micro USB port has no bearing on whether or not you can connect over USB (see: every Samsung tablet).

Looks like you aren't the only one with this problem. A simple reboot seems to be working for most people, with some having to do a factory reset. If you have to do that, don't forget to use an app such as Titanium Backup to back up your apps first.

I've seen this on occasion on mine. It seems to be a software issue, triggered by certain usage patterns. This post on XDA-developers has some info on how you may be able to trigger it. That community seems to be hoping that the 4.1 Jelly Bean update will include a cure.

The GPS should eventually work without wifi, the further you are in distance and time from the last GPS sync, the longer the startup time will be. Perhaps in Slovenia and Croatia you used it enough that the startup time was reasonable. (Wifi access can shortcut the process by giving the GPS a hint as to your probably location). I would suggest putting ...

It definitely is a software configuration. There are 2 possible reasons for this problem: Servers its contacting - When Google Maps on your tablet/phone contacts the GPS satellites, its done through a special set of servers. Sometimes, the manufacturer might have set the system to connect to a set of particularly busy servers. It has been shown that ...

You can change the language within settings -> Language & input. There are options for English (Canada, United Kingdom, and United States) and Polish (Polski) as well as a variety of other languages. If it's in Polish, tap the bottom right of the tablet (the clock area), tap the top box (where the time is), tap the bottom option (Ustawienia - ...

Apparently there is no way to do it. There are some alternative market places that can be used, but they don't solve the fact that tablets with the chinese firmware are rendered useless because there's no Google account support. So the only thing you can do really is install this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1245892 Works like a charm ...

DroidTV Primetime is the one that I find most useful. I was hoping to use Netflix or LoveFilm on a tablet - even if I had to go iPad - but offline viewing seems fundamental to the nature of these devices and yet completely unsupported.

You can find special screen cleaning mixtures to use, but they're mostly just alcohol. I've been using a lens-cleaning spray on my phone for years with no adverse effects. Just spray a bit on a piece of paper towel and wipe the screen down. You'll want to use an alcohol based spray, as it evaporates much faster than water, and so won't short out your device. ...

Yes, you can play Amazon Prime videos using flash in the browser. See this thread. Per the thread, you may have to remove the stock Flash and install Adobe's official version from the market, as well as the Dolphin HD browser. You can rent movies from Amazon, which presumably use the same framework as Prime videos. It would probably be advisable to rent a ...

First off, the charging cable for Transformer is not that clunky. Sure, inconvenient having to carry another cable and adapter, but it's not that bad. Second, Asus is not the only manufacturer to use a proprietary port (with the required proprietary charging/data cable) instead of USB or MicroUSB connections. Samsung tablets are notorious for requiring a ...

THIS IS the ASUS answer I received! Really, sweep it under the carpet. I cannot return this unit, is already over the return period time.... I own a TF 201, I installed SketchBook Pro. I also have an Ipad 2 (from work) with the same same software. My issue, is the Transformer Prime, does not respond very well compare to the Ipad. I truly wonder if this ...

Selected excerpts from the official Android 4 Platform Highlights document: The biggest changes will be for phones upgrading from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich, rather than for tablets upgrading from Honeycomb, as a lot of the new UI features were introduced in Honeycomb. The UI change is a big difference and brings Honeycomb's Recent Apps ...

Use the icons. First look for the settings app or icon (looks like cog wheels). Scroll through the list of apps in your launcher. You can also press the menu button while on your main homescreen and choose the settings from there (same idea - look for the cog-wheel icon). Once you're in settings, look for the menu option with a little 'A' icon on the side ...
