ASUS started pushing Android 4.2.1 to the Transformer Pad Infinity exactly one week ago, but if you've been waiting for the blob to hit the company's download site for whatever reason, it's available now. This makes available build 10.6.1.14.4 to those who wish to manually flash (or need to recovery after a catastrophic event).
Currently the full firmware download is available for the US (United States), WW (Worldwide), and TW (Taiwan) versions of the HD tablet. Read More
At the beginning of March, ASUS became the first company to push Android 4.2 to a non-Nexus device when the update came to the TF300. At the time, the company promised 4.2 for the TF700 and MeMO Pad Smart sometime "in the second quarter." We're now three days into Q2, and ASUS has started pushing the update to the TF700 (Infinity). Talk about delivering on promises.
Announced late last night on the official ASUS Facebook page, the update brings all sorts of goodies to the device:
Upgrade to Android Jelly Bean 4.2
- Multiple account login for up-to 4 user accounts
- ASUS Screen Saver in DayDream Feature
- Parental Lock
- New Camera AP
We've selected the winners. Congrats to:
We'll be in contact shortly.
Time for day two of our NVIDIA Tegra holiday giveaways! We'll be holding 2 more Tegra-themed giveaways in addition to this one over the next couple days - so be sure to come back every day through Sunday to check out the latest one. Today's giveaway is - you guessed it - more tablets! We're offering up the ASUS Transform Pad Infinity (TF700) and Transformer Pad 300 (TF300T), both bundled with their respective keyboard docks - both of which pack Tegra 3 quad-core power. Read More
Update: It looks like the TF700 isn't the only device new to the CM10.1 world; nightly builds are also available for the Nexus 7 (grouper) and GSM variant of the Galaxy Nexus (maguro).
The CyanogenMod team has been steadily working on getting Android 4.2 ready for nightly status, with builds already available for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10. The newest member of the CM 10.1 family is ASUS' flagship 10" tablet: the Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700). Read More
If you head over to ASUS's download page for the Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T), you can grab the newest firmware update for your Infinity - 10.4.4.20. The update is available for US, Japan, China, Taiwan, and Worldwide variants of the TF700T, so make sure you download the correct firmware. Some folks over at XDA have been playing with the update, but until now, a changelog has been elusive.
We happen to have the official changelog from ASUS, and this a pretty substantial bug-fix update that should alleviate some of the issues people have been experiencing with the device. Read More
If you own ASUS' first full HD tablet - the Transformer Pad Infinity - the custom ROM scene just got quite a bit better for you. Why, you ask? Because the TF700T is now officially support by CyanogenMod, and the first CM10 nightly is already available.
Of course, in order to flash this you'll need to unlock the bootloader, which, in turn, voids the warranty. Read More
It's also worth noting that once you abandon ASUS' stock firmware, there's currently no way to go back, despite the fact that ASUS makes the update blobs available (I learned this the hard way with the TF201).
A small update is making is way to the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700), bringing a slew of minor bug fixes along with it. We actually got our hands on a changelog this time (a rarity for ASUS):
Camera (All SKUs)
- Fix the issue that switching to front camera in Facebook app would cause Facebook app to crash.
Wi-Fi (All SKUs)
- Fix the issue that some 802.1x Wi-Fi APs cannot be connected after upgrading to Jelly Bean.
Last week, ASUS promised Jelly Bean to TF201 and TF700 owners, and while the former got its update right on time, there was an issue that prevented the update from being pushed to the latter. As a result, ASUS said the update would be available "early next week." Here we are, about as early as it can possibly get in the new week, and the OTA has already begun rolling out. Read More
Just yesterday, ASUS promised both TF201 and TF700 owners their Jelly Bean updates on September 28th and 29th, respectively. While they owned up to that for the Prime, the Infinity isn't so lucky: they just had to push the update back.
According to ASUS rep Gary Key, "a couple of applications that were recently updated (Facebook 1.9.10 on 9/20 as one example) required a last minute firmware update for the keyboard to operate correctly in the "Comment" area with Android 4.1."
It's not all bad, though - the update should still begin rolling out early next week. Read More
