[MWC 2012] Hands-On With The Qualcomm S4 Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700KG): Hey, Look - An Antenna Window

While at the Google booth earlier today, ASUS was kind enough to let us take a look at the upcoming Transformer Pad Infinity (basically, a beefed up TF Prime), albeit a version we had not yet seen.

The TF700KG is likely going to be a Europe-only device (unless it were to be picked up by a major carrier here in the US), as it has a 4G LTE SIM slot on it, and runs on a Qualcomm S4 MSM8960 dual-core processor. The Infinity also has a 1920x1200 IPS display, significantly higher than the resolution of the Prime. However, one of the biggest changes many people noted that would be coming to the new-and-improved Transformer was the antenna window.

[Download] ClockworkMod Recovery Now Available For The Transformer Prime, CM9 Teased As Well

Well, that didn't take long. Not hours after ASUS released a tool to unlock the Transformer Prime's bootloader, we get word that ClockworkMod Recovery is available for the quad-core tablet. According to the source link, the team has been working on CWM for the Prime for a while but without an unlocked bootloader, they couldn't test it. Now that the device is wide open, it's time to get your custom recovery on.

As if that wasn't enough, though, the team behind the custom recovery is also teasing CyanogenMod 9 on the tablet. No downloads are available for this one, yet, but we get a nice two-minute demonstration of the tablet running the custom ROM.

New Transformer Prime OTA (Build 9.4.2.13) Update Rolling Out Now, Brings Improved Wi-Fi Connectivity And A New Kernel

Transformer Prime owners in the U.S. are waking up this morning to a notification of a new OTA update that should bring improved Wi-Fi and Bluetooth performance, along with a new kernel. Since there's no official changelog just yet, little is known for sure what else this update packs, but we're hearing that it also brings a fix for the random reboot issue that plagued many users after the update to Ice Cream Sandwich last month.

Having Issues Updating Your Transformer Prime Due To The 'Serial Number Not Found' Problem? Ratchet Is Here To Save The Day

Despite its former problems, when the ICS update started rolling out to the Transformer Prime earlier this month, users were elated. However, some users were immediately hit with a problem while trying to update: serial number not found. This error, as simple as it sounds, completely prevents the Prime from being able to perform any sort of update, be it manual or OTA.

ASUS is aware of the issue an working on a fix, but in the meantime, our beloved dev community has been cooking up something of their own, and it looks like it's ready to go. The fix is called Ratchet and it basically rewrites the configuration partition, allowing the user to manually enter  serial number.

Rockstar' Grand Theft Auto III Receives Major Update, Adding Transformer Prime, SD Support, And More

Rockstar Games unleashed the 10th Anniversary Edition of Grand Theft Auto III onto the Android Market just over a month ago, and we thought it was awesome. Unfortunately, the game was only available for a few devices upon its release, but it has since added support for many more.

If you own a Transformer Prime, you'll be glad to know that the game's latest update puts your device on the "approved" list. In addition, the update brings SD card support, which is huge considering the game file is rather large.

Aside from those two majorly important additions, here's what else you'll see:

  1. Added support for Medion Lifetab and the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime
  2. Integrated with Immersion Haptic Vibration Feedback
  3. Tailor your visual experience with new video display settings
  4. Improved controls for supported gamepads
  5. Improved controls for Xperia Play
  6. Game can now be installed to an SD card
  7. Gamestop Wireless Game Controller Fully supported.

How To Root The Transformer Prime After The Latest OTA

If you lost root after updating your Transformer Prime with the latest OTA, we have good news: thanks to a new method found by Android hacker Saurik, you can now root once again.

As always, we're not responsible if you damage your device. It's all you, baby!

So, you ready to make this happen? Let's get started.

First things first, you'll need to grab a couple of files.

Once you've downloaded the required files, plug your Prime into your computer, fire up adb, and enter the following commands (one at a time, of course):

adb push mempodroid /data/local
adb push su /data/local
adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/mempodroid
adb shell /data/local/mempodroid 0xd9ec 0xaf47 mount -o remount,rw '' /system
adb shell
/data/local/mempodroid 0xd9ec 0xaf47 sh

At this point, you should be in a root shell session (indicated with the pound sign).

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime (TF201) 64GB In Amethyst Gray Back In Stock At Amazon (For Now)

While the quad-core Transformer Prime has seen its fair share of negative accusations, it's still the tablet of the moment. In fact, it's so sought after that ASUS is having a hard time filling shipments and it's still out of stock nearly everywhere (sound familiar?).

If you've been waiting around for one of the major retailers to get a new shipment in, then make ready the credit card - the 64GB version in amethyst grey just became (re)available on Amazon. If 64 geebees is more than you want, though, they should be getting more of the 32GB variant back in stock on January 25th.

ASUS Transformer Prime OTA Update Rolling Out, Supposedly Fixes GPS Woes

Since launch, the ASUS Transformer Prime's GPS issues have hampered an otherwise stellar tablet. To make matters worse, ASUS confirmed that the problem was due to the Prime's all-aluminium construction, indicating that a software fix was unlikely. Indeed ASUS was forced to release a new version of the Prime (TF700T), with an updated back panel to improve the GPS functionality. However, ASUS has not given up all hope on the original Prime as a new OTA update (V9.4.2.7) is rolling out, which could fix the GPS drivers.

The OTA update has not gone live for everyone and in some cases it fails during installation.
