ASUS, a company that has made a name for itself in the Android community by providing fast updates and prompt firmware releases for its devices, has now made available the kernel source code and latest firmware build (9.4.4.49) for the LTE version of the Transformer Pad (TF300TL).

Both firmware and kernel source are for the Android 4.0.3, which is the latest version available the TF300TL.

This is good news for anyone who has this tablet (which was just released in the middle of this month in German and Australian markets), as the kernel source allows ROM developers to cook up better quality custom firmware, and the blob file makes restoring the device back to stock a simple as flashing a .zip file.

Archos Releases A Firmware Update (4.0.6) For The 80/101 G9 Tablets, Fixes A Variety Of Bugs

The Archos tablets may not be the best in class in terms of hardware or feature sets, but the most recent round of tablets won us over a bit by leaving Ice Cream Sandwich largely untouched. Today the tablet gets a little sweeter as Archos is rolling out an update for the slate's firmware that fixes a variety of bugs.

Version 4.0.6 - May 3rd, 2012

  • Wi-Fi: fix more disconnect cases happening on some access points
  • GPS: increase stability of GPS
  • HDMI: do not propose overscan setting when TV supports underscan
  • muSD: improve reliability of card insertion detection
  • muSD: fix read/write permission issue occurring with some applications
