Following last month's Transformer Pad 300 (TF300) OTA update to v9.4.3.29, ASUS is pushing out a new bug fixer v9.4.3.30 with a host of improvements, the most notable one of which is the upgraded camera firmware. I just completed the process on my tablet, and it only took a few minutes.

So what's new in .30? This question is answered by none other than... ASUS Finland, of course, which provided the upcoming changelog almost a week ago on the Facebook page in all its Engrish glory:

TF300T ICS v9.4.3.30
- SYSTEM – improve stability of Chrome browser
- SYSTEM – improve camera performance
- Pictures more colorful
- better audio- white balance(AWB) and auto-focus(AE)
- better continues-auto-focus (CAF)
- SYSTEM – fix the bug “wifi occasionally fail to connect after resume from suspend status”
- Appbackup – fix the bug “have to key-in password again after change screen orientation”

To force your device to check for this update, go to Settings > About > System Firmware Update and press Check Update.

    It'd be high time to fix the Prime too, the tablet is pretty much unusable after the .21 and  .28 updates. Loads of ANRs, virtually no 3D game works and it lags badly.

      Mine was like this all along.

         If they cant solve the problem with the IO speeds, they should recall the Prime. Its ridiculous that my SII is a incomparably  faster and more reliable with a CM9 nightly than a Tegra3 device.

    Old rooting method still works on .30

      What is the "old rooting method"? Any links to it or can you message me a link? Thanks.

    Haha, one guy on XDA got this days ago and made a post about it...everyone thought he was trolling.  Now I feel bad for the guy.

    Maybe I parent can give a teen, especially if they want a laptop computer. That camera can really tell you what's going on.

    I hope this fixes my more than occasional "this program has stopped responding" press wait or ok to continue bug, which seems only to affect a few of the devices.  Maybe some better Tegra 3 support? Certain games which work on both the Prime and OG TF101 (GTA3 and Renaissance Blood THD) do not work on the 300 @ the moment

      GTA3 works fine on my tf300

      • John O’Connor

  • Tban

    This update simply bricked my tablet ! Any other guy like me? all went well until recovery mode, but after that the tablet shut down and no more boot possible!!! CRAP

    • Luís Cruz

      same here on a TF300TL... not sure what to do but slap asustech on the face...

  • bettery goodness

    The list of fixes is actually on the support.asus.com firmware download page: 

    I should point out they claim the update to provide "bettery continues-auto-focus", not "better". Truthiness in advertising.

  • Patricl

    I have this update and I experimeted lag on OS still there

  • Clyde Dulin

    After the recent "upgrade" it now shuts down and willnot turn on. Anyone else have this happen?
