ASUS is on a roll with the 4.2 updates lately – it started with the TF300 (Wi-Fi) back in early March, and followed with the Infinity (TF700) and MeMO Pad Smart shortly after. And of course, it released full ROM downloads along the way for those who prefer to manually flash their devices.
The 3G version of the TF300 – the TF300TG – is next in line for the 4.2.1 update, which appears to have started rolling out sometime over the past couple of days. Read More
When it comes to well-support devices, ASUS is a company that stands by its products. The TF300 was the first non-Nexus device to get Android 4.2, and the Taiwanese manufacturer followed up by bringing the updated build to the TF700 (Infinity) and MeMO Pad Smart.
Today, it's sending another small (17MB) update to the TF300 that brings a handful of improvements and bug fixes:
1. IME bugs fix
Those of you who decided to unlock the bootloader of your ASUS Transformer Pad 300 were likely pretty bummed when the 4.2.1 update started rolling out earlier this month (I know I was) since ASUS decided that unlocked devices shouldn't get OTAs. Thankfully, the company just uploaded the full ROM to its site for your flashing pleasure.
The TF300 marks the first non-Nexus tablet to get the bump to 4.2.x, which brings features like multi-user, quick settings, lockscreen widgets, and much more. Read More
It's been over four months since Google officially announced Android 4.2 and slightly less time since the initial round of new Nexus devices running it went up for order. Much like the gunshot that kicks off the 100-meter tortoise race, that launch signaled the silent contest to see which manufacturer could get out a non-Nexus update first. Today, we have our winner: ASUS, with a shiny new version of Jelly Bean for the Transformer Pad (TF300T). Read More
We've selected the winners. Congrats to:
We'll be in contact shortly.

Another day, another round of nightly builds for the upcoming CyanogenMod 10.1. This time, the latest release of the custom ROM that brings Android 4.2 has been made available on a further 3 devices: the Google Nexus S, Nexus S 4G, and the ASUS Transformer Pad 300 (TF300T).
: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.
Have an LTE-packing TF300? Ready for Jelly Bean? Good news! ASUS has now made the full ROM available on its site.
To get the latest and greatest on your tablet, you need only download the blob file, extract its contents, and then flash away.
This update should match that of its Wi-Fi counterpart, bringing some subtle, yet noticeable, enhancements to the device. You'll be able to feel the difference immediately thanks to Project Butter, and get the latest El Goog has to offer in the realm of voice controls with Google Now. Read More
A new update for Asus' middle-range Android tablet is rolling out at this very moment. Users on XDA are reporting getting the update notification, but it appears to be a little fickle with rooted devices. The abbreviated changelog claims this is a simple stability enhancement.
Update: This build is now available as a full ROM over at ASUS' TF300 Downloads.
To get the software on a rooted device, it is recommended that you take a few steps before applying the update. Read More
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 (18.104.22.168) 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.

A bit less than two weeks ago, the TF300 became the first non-Nexus ASUS tablet to receive an update to Jelly Bean, starting with the U.S. Several days later, ASUS posted the full Jelly Bean ROM v10.4.2.9, though only for U.S. variants, and almost immediately started the OTA rollout in Europe.
If you have one of these TF300s with a WW (worldwide) or TW (Taiwan) SKU and haven't gotten the OTA yet (or messed something up and want to restore), the full ROMs are now downloadable from the TF300 support page (select Download -> Android):
Since ASUS' site often times out, I'll save you a few minutes of frustration and provide all 3 direct links:
To check the region variant of the software on your TF300T, go to Settings > About tablet and look at Build number. Read More
