The Asus Transformer Pad TF701T launched with Android 4.2, with an update to 4.3 coming less than a month later. Unsurprisingly, an update to KitKat hasn't arrived nearly as quickly. This could be disheartening, but as seasoned Android users have come to expect, a ROM speeding things along is usually on its way. CyanogenMod 11 is now available for the TF701T, proving users with a way to experience Android 4.4 on what is a pretty compelling device.

CyanogenMod 11 brings KitKat, but this is a nightly, so tread carefully. Any number of things could go wrong. Some things may need time to mature, and any wrong click could lead to a poor kitten's death.

Or everything could work just fine. That happens too, sometimes. The risk is yours.

    I know it's older than dirt, but I wish they included the transformer prime (tf201). That would make me a happy camper!

        Very nice! Thanks for the info. Going to check it out for sure!

      Probably something in CM that doesn't work the same way as in the stock ROM.

      @jeremysheehan:disqus I would suggest doing the following on your Asus Transformer Prime TF201

      (I am guessing you already have Root and a custom Recovery. If you don't I am not going to instruct you on how to do so)

      (I would suggest downloading all the files onto an external SD card first and foremost before beginning this process as well)

      The Steps I took to get Crombi-KK on my Prime were as follows

      1 - Make a nandroid because you are going to lose everything and are going to be upgrading your tablet to the 4.2 bootloader

      2 - Flash the 4.2 bootloader update provided by Flumpster on his Androwook ROM http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23060877490002899

      3 - Reboot Recovery

      4 - Flash the TWRP 2.7.0.1 Provided by Scanno http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23329332407579270

      5 - Reboot Recovery

      6 - Perform your regular Wipe

      7 - Flash Both the ROM and the GAPPS provided by lj50036 http://forum.xda-developers.com/devdb/project/?id=3344#downloads

      8 - Reboot and Profit.

      The device is beyond smooth compared to how it used to be, even with 150+ apps installed. Greenify really helps to lower battery consumption, but so far everything is better than expected. Hope that helps if you have questions the developers opened another support thread here

      Good luck, and happy flashing!

        I looked around for ROMs when I first got it and didn't see that much. I should have looked more! Thanks! I'll certainly look at CROMBI-KK

    Has the dock even been fixed by asus?

    Too bad I had to return all three that I got as each one had manufacturing defects. After having owned every Asus Android tablet since the TF101 and having issues with every single one I think my Asus Tablet days are done. Still sticking with them for Mobo's and video cards though!

    ..and yet mine sits on a shelf gathering dust. I feel bad about that, but my chromebook has completely replaced the tablet for me.
