Asus releases Transformer Prime update, might not want to update your tablet

Transformer Brick - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

Just yesterday we talked about some of the problems the recently released Asus Transformer Prime was having. It seems that even if you were one of the lucky ones to get one, you might not be all that happy about it. Asus seems to be quick to release a firmware update to, but you might not want to update it quite yet.

The update was supposed to fix a few issues including camera focus and touch accuracy, as well as enhanced GPS speed, better app compatibility, stabilizing the Asus logo, and removing the MyZine widget from the desktop. A lot of people are reporting that the update is going the way it is supposed to, but at least one person has reported that updating their tablet has cause it to become bricked. Some other people state that the update does not remove the MyZine widget like it is supposed to. At this point you might want to wait to apply the update since there is nothing all that major in it. Waiting for better camera focus is a whole lot better than bricking your brand new tablet. It will be interesting to see what Asus does with all this in the coming days.
