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

Got same problem. Here's a fix. Go to the advanced settings by typing "about:config" in the url string, filter settings by "font" substring and change the values of font names corresponding to your codepage from "sans..." (NOT mono) to "Roboto". Restart firefox

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

It's simple: when the hardware keyboard is attached, the tray (lower right of screen) has a keyboard icon. Click it and the top option is use hardware keyboard on/off.

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 ...

An part of the RAM is reserved - often for the GPU - and not useable by the dalvik VM and Apps. This is not uncommon: Samsungs Galaxy S has also 512MB but only 334MB are useable by Apps. This can differ from ROM version to version.

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

Daniel! i had the same problem after flashing it with CM 10 Nightly, but after debugging on settings, i found a fix. i dont know if its a bug or what, but what i did was: 1) 'forget' my network 2) connect to it again(MAKE SURE YOUR SECURITY KEY IS ENTERED CORRECTLY) 3) if still says, "saved, secured with wpa" dont hesitate, you're still not done 4) on your ...

The Kids Place app (free) permits you to set up a locked screen with just the apps your kids are permitted to play; just make certain that Market is not one of those apps.

And how do you think you can determinate upstair/downstair location? Transformer has GPS receiver, but its precision in indoor use is way too low to have a reliable altitude reading.

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer uses a USB 3.0 cable. I've seen noises elsewhere on the 'net that it will only charge on a USB 3.0 socket. This is likely associated with the extra power only available on USB 3.0.

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 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 ...

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 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 ...

You can install Cyanogen now, and in the event of an official update, go back to the stock Rom. Steps to install CyanogenMod in Asus TF300t: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_tf300t

TF201 isn't supported on CM11, so your choices are to go with official nightlies (which are not stable) of CM10.1 from here or unofficial CM11 from here. Neither of these are stable or officially supported releases. The Google apps version you should use depends on the CM version you choose to flash. If you're using CM11, use the 20140105 GApps. If you're ...

I've found that if I run into problems with the custom recovery, I can get rid of it altogether by re-flashing the stock firmware, and then I can install the custom recovery again. You have a different device, but that's what works on a Samsung Galaxy S4, so it might work for you. Of course, there's always the possibility that if you try installing CWM again ...
