tf300jb

A bit less than two weeks ago, the TF300 became the first non-Nexus ASUS tablet to receive an update to Jelly Bean, starting with the U.S. Several days later, ASUS posted the full Jelly Bean ROM v10.4.2.9, though only for U.S. variants, and almost immediately started the OTA rollout in Europe.

If you have one of these TF300s with a WW (worldwide) or TW (Taiwan) SKU and haven't gotten the OTA yet (or messed something up and want to restore), the full ROMs are now downloadable from the TF300 support page (select Download -> Android):

Since ASUS' site often times out, I'll save you a few minutes of frustration and provide all 3 direct links:

To check the region variant of the software on your TF300T, go to Settings > About tablet and look at Build number.

Thanks for those, ASUS - it's refreshing to see a manufacturer consistently provide full ROMs for its products, recovery instructions, and changelogs (most of the time).

    Question for those with the TF300T and updated:
    - How apparent is the difference in terms of general system snapiness?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      I can't really see much improvement in snappiness, but it does seem very smooth when scrolling between screens, for instance. It's still lagging behind the Nexus 7 though in terms of NAND performance.

        Was the same with Nexus S and the Galaxy S. Was a very noticeable different in terms of NAND performance, hehe.

      Pretty much everything involving the home screen, app drawer, widgets, and apps closely integrated with the OS (like Gmail) all seem to work much better for me - project butter and all that. However, some apps seem to actually perform WORSE after the update. Most problematic is that every time I hit a text-entry field Swiftkey hangs for a few seconds. Then again, I haven't looked at my keyboard settings since the update so I guess it's possible that something toggled that wasn't supposed to and is giving Android fits trying to figure out which keyboard to use.

    what about TF201? :(

    *waits patiently for the TF700t update...*

    • Coleburns

      at least give us a damn time frame ASUS

      • UniBroW

        Yeah, I hate to sound impatient, but that would be pretty nice of them to do. I am not one for vague time lines.

        Either way, I'm sure I'll have Jelly Bean on the Infinity before my wife's Nexus S 4G. B-)

    So let me get this straight, if I've unlocked the bootloader and I want this update I now have to ROM this firmware? There is no easier tactic?
