Wait no more, Transformer Prime owners - the Jelly Bean update (Android 4.1.1) has just started rolling out! We've confirmed multiple sightings of the OTA popup in the States as well as Spain. Canada is on tonight's list too, and we'd like to get as many confirmations in other countries as possible, so post your country and whether you're seeing the JB update in the comments.

Here's what you should expect:

  • Upgrade OS from Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
  • Default enable System Bar Lock
  • Add Multiple Photo Selection feature
  • Support Connect Dock (Accessory)
  • Remove Adobe Flash support
  • Remove Wi-Fi Direct function support
  • Remove Press Reader

So, TF300 and TF201 are done, TF700 to follow tomorrow. Impressive work, ASUS.

    Still no jelly bean update for TF201 in France...

    • jusatin

      It took a few hours with the TF300T to get the update showing for all countries, so just try to hang on, it will come ;) (which version are you, WW?)

  • Josh C

    is there any official word of jellybean on tf101? or have they already said no?

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

      I don't recall a commitment for TF101, but they might surprise us after all.

    • jusatin

      There was some yes and no's from Asus staff (if I recall correctly Asus Europe might have said yes but then the "official" Asus page stated they don't confirm the update for 101)

  • David Stallard

    Downloading right now in Australia. Happy times!

    • http://www.facebook.com/vivecuervo7 Isaac Dedini

      Hmm I bought mine in Australia but now I'm living in Chile. Downloading an update right now, fingers crossed as to what it is (haven't used the Prime in a few months).

  • QwietStorm

    Now get to the 101

    Nothing in Slovakia as of now :(

  • ZombieJerky

    I am in California and I am now running with the update on a tf201. So far, so good, though my tf201 has never really given me problems to begin with

    • ZombieJerky

      I wanted to add...

      It kept saying it was failing, but once in a while a message said to check the notification for the download. I didn't see anything there, so I thought I would try again an hour or so later. When I got back to it, it had already downloaded and asked me if I wanted to install it, there wasn't ever a notification saying it was on it's way down.

      It updated and it is still working great.

  • David Stallard

    Has anyone noticed that Google Now can be activated from the lock screen in landscape orientation, but not in portrait orientation? Little bit bizarre given the Nexus 7 only has portrait mode available on the lock screen.

  • bobby.tables

    Has anyone tried if RootKeeper works? I am kind of afraid to loose root with this OTA.

  • http://twitter.com/Darkmyth_pt Darkmyth PT

    if i had one i really wouldnt know if i wanted to lose wifi direct and flash....

    • Deme

      -you can side load flash

  • http://www.xboxmp.com/ Dustin DeFoe

    Mine says it is failing to download and to try again in a few minutes. Not sure what is going on.

    • http://www.xboxmp.com/ Dustin DeFoe

      I kept trying and finally got it to download. Installing it now...

  • DavidKeith

    Here is my wallet ASUS and Google.. just make it happen on the Infinity today!

  • James Reynolds

    According to XDA, release is now being held due to keyboard issues with new FB app and others. New release is scheduled for early next week!

  • Thom

    Installing now in Michigan. Downloaded right way.

  • CJ Walker

    My Prime is so fast right now. Switching between and opening up apps is amazing. I love project butter!

  • VANdaMAN

    Nothing yet in India!

  • Joel

    Had a lot of "DMClient has stopped" and download failures for a couple of hours, but it looks to have finally downloaded. I suspect Asus may be a bit slammed (which also means they're probably going to be doing the rollout in steps to manage load the best they can).

  • spydie

    (United States) Mine said update available. I downloaded it. It asked if I wanted to install it now. I said yes. It went through the usual, verify the download, power-down, restart, finish installing. Got a triangle over the android guy. Failed to install. Can't get it to re-download (says there's no update) and can't find the download on my tab (anyone know where the download is stored?) to try to install it again. I'm stuck on 4.0.3 now and no update in sight.

    • http://www.facebook.com/damonwynne Damon Wynne

      I just had the same issue. Downloaded and then android with triangle and exclamation mark. Also no update currently available when trying again

      • http://www.facebook.com/kristopher.michaels Kristopher Demi Michaels

        Have you found a fix? Mine just did the same thing.

        • James

          Yep, go to the Asus site, download the JB zip, place it in the / of your internal storage, reboot. You will have a notification after boot that an upgrade has been detected. Install and enjoy. Just be wary that OTA Rootkeeper didn't save me.

    • http://www.facebook.com/kristopher.michaels Kristopher Demi Michaels

      Mine just did the same thing. I can't find a way to make it redo the update. Have you?

      • ausgetti

        same thing here has anyone found a fix?

    • B-rad

      I'm sitting in the same boat... Hope someone finds the fix for this. I might wipe it and see if it gives me the opportunity again if it doesn't come soon.

  • Johnny

    I got my update (USA) but for some reason it's kinda laggy when I'm trying to switch between apps or just by swicthing to another home screen. :(

  • spydie

    anybody know where the download is stored on the tablet so I can try to install it again?

  • spydie

    anyone know where the download is stored on the tablet so I can try installing it again?

  • Cary

      • Sylvain Blais

        Same issue for me in Québec.

        • Sorenxx

          hey Sylvain Blais,
          what i did to get update was clear CM client and DM client, then it fetched the download and installed JB.

          • Jrad

          • Sylvain Blais

            Thanks for the hint. I tried it but no success yet.

  • http://www.facebook.com/shawn.earle Shawn Earle

    Mine downloaded an installed ok, but there are lots of keyboard issues, especially with facebook the app is no longer useable on jellybean! I can still play candy crush on facebook so i guess it did not remove my flash player?' But i cannot enter any text such as comments and messages!

    • http://www.facebook.com/katina.gordon Katina Gordon

  • Chix at Six

    My TF201 upgraded fine yesterday (sept 28). All running smoothly albeit I cannot find the vibrate when power on setting - used to but not now. Minor anyway. Changes otherwise as listed/expected. UK.

  • finian

    Same issue here. I am rooted, would that cause an issue? Anyone have a workaround or any ideas?

  • Davo

    Got my OTA jelly bean last night in Australia, no issues with my update.

  • White_Pirate

    I was having problems too. I plugged mine into my pc and rebooted then just let it update itself which worked

  • Jamaal Dozier

    Im very upset that wi fi direct was removed. I loved playing networked games on the go with my wife.
