I can read everywhere here in France that the OTA version of Ice Cream Sandwich is available for the Asus Transformer TF101. But when I check for a new firmware, it finds nothing. Is there a step I missed?

My Transformer is currently working with Android 3.2.1.

OTA upgrade has been stopped due to several SW issues. A modified upgrade is expected within weeks, be patient. (I do have the upgrade, but not installed as I have read about the problems... now I am refusing it every day :(

    Ok, that's what I wanted to know. Could you add a link to the said problems? Mar 12, 2012 at 13:36

    Do you have a link to this information csababp ? Mar 13, 2012 at 16:11

If you go to the ASUS web site, there are downloads available (choose Android as your OS. I got confused thinking that Windows was the right choice for the upgrade, they mean Windows for the drivers, and Android for the firmware).

Download the right localized build. I am in the US, so mine was the US build.

Copy it to an microSD card in a directory ASUS\Update\patchFile.zip

Then when you pop the card in, the tablet should notify you that there is an update available.

  • geoffc - I should put in the sd card the file I directly downloaded or should I unzip it first? Mar 13, 2012 at 16:52
  • @RafaelS.Calsaverini You unzip the first level file, should have a second ZIP'ed file in it. Then you put that on the SD card in ASUS\Update directory and try it then.

  • Thanks. I tried that, but unfortunately my tablet is not groking the update. After some minutes it returns "There was a problem and the firmware was reversed to the previous state" or something like this. My eee pad is WW and I got the WW file. Maybe there was a problem with the download and a checksum error. Don't know. I will try again later. :( Mar 15, 2012 at 16:15
