ASUS makes Jelly Bean updates for TF201 and TF700 available online
While most people prefer to update their tablets OTA-style, some people – for whatever reason – don’t like to, or just can’t. That’s why ASUS has traditionally made all of its software updates available on its website as ready-to-go, fully-flashable ROMs, although usually several days or weeks after the OTA update initially goes live.
The wait, however, is over for owners of the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime (TF201) and Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700) – the recent updates to Jelly Bean are now available for both tablets. This should be music to the ears of those who have been waiting patiently for the update themselves, while reading about how awesome it was in all kinds of forums and discussion boards.
This should also be especially welcome news for those Transformer Pad Infinity users who have never been able to accept an OTA update. While ASUS claims that this problem has been rectified, there are still a few reports trickling in from users who have been unable to download OTA updates.
Users from other parts of the world who haven’t gotten the update can also download and flash these ROMs, although ASUS recommends making sure that you’ve got the right firmware for your region.
Of course, developers also love getting their hands on these ROMs, as it’s now that much easier to tweak and customize them for those who have unlocked their bootloaders and are into the custom ROM scene. Download links appear below.[ASUS: 1, 2]
