    Excited for this update. I love my transformer. I have 1 gripe! The feet under the swivel dock hinge are hard plastic, not rubber, so when docked, the whole thing slides around!

    • Esteban

      I'm with you on that one.

  • Jordan

    seriously, how good is ASUS with updates! So glad I got the transformer.

  • Esteban

    That Supernote app is pretty good. I think it can be very useful.

  • Phil

    Anyone install this update with a rooted transformer?

  • larry

    Installed the update. Now the battery won't charge - neither the dock's battery nor the tablet. Maybe it's the power adapter, but it won't charge from a usb port either, in which case it would have to be the albeit flimsy ASUS-provided cable.

  • Ian

    Well done ASUS, I have a Dell Streak which I also love, but the contrast in after purchase support could not be any more different. ASUS products and their support deliver!

  • Sam

    Since this update my eee pad can't connect to my wifi. If I don't attempt to connect to my network it shows full bars but once I do it goes to 0. ???

  • FRED

    Since this update the battery (ies) drain super fast. Seems to be a problem with the wifi shutting down properly and/or the unit going into sleep.

    I bought one just this Tuesday, but this update is still not available to me. And the menu pick is misnamed in the article. It's actually Settings>>About tablet>>System update

    • Bob O`Bob

      Ha! Push Murphy's Law, and once in a while, you win. Even though I had checked less than two hours ago, the notification came in just minutes after I posted here, and it's downloading now. Looking forward to trying out these new features soon!

      ...and there it is! By the way, the menu item NOW says "System Firmware Update" so even that name got changed.

  • Mike G

    I installed firmware update and video failed - solved by updating Adobe flash but also my Polaris office has reverted to what looks like the free version, so I cannot create docs? Anyone know why or how to solve it?

  • Christine

    I installed the update, and ever since the battery won't charge using the ASUS charger. Five minutes before update- it worked fine, i was using it, and it was charging. Some time afterwards, it stopped charging and hasn't charged since. Some other people also have had this problem. This needs to be fixed ASAP!! Does not work with either the USB or wall plug-in!
