Jelly Bean rolling out to Australian Asus Transformer TF300 now


We saw the tweet from Asus a few days ago stating that the Jelly Bean update for the Asus Transformer TF300 would be rolling out in the next two weeks, well we’ve just been advised by Angelo that he is starting to receive the update on his tablet right now. He is using an Australian model so if you have a TF300 go to Settings > About > Check for Update and see if you have a Jelly Bean update available to download now. Let us know in the comments, tweet us or email us if you see that Update notification and let us how the new update runs on your tablet.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I wish I never upgraded to Jelly Bean, now my TF300T constantly freezes up and restarts itself, that and no flash support. So far I cant see any improvement over ICS.

Just rolled back to stock, but not getting the update at the moment. Guess I will wait for morning (rolling back to stock may have been more trouble than it was worth

Upgrade to 4.1.1 completed on my Asus TF300. So far so good. The “Project Butter” made it a lot smoother. Apps open quicker and in general more responsive. No lag.

What’s the web browsing experience like? Chrome and every other browser has always been laggy as hell on my Transformer Prime

Better… but not great. Chrome is still smoother on the new iPad

Don’t worry Sim, it’s not just the Prime that’s getting the shaft.
The TF700 is Asus new flagship tablet model, just released (well after the TF300). Yet even this recently released flagship model is lagging behind the budget-friendly TF300 in updates.

Makes us wonder why we’re humouring Asus by buying their overpriced top-of-the-line tablets when they prioritise it after the budget models. Crazy stuff

They aren’t getting the shaft… they will get an update soon. It could be that there are more TF300 devices in the world than TF201 and TF700 devices… ? Maybe the prioritised based on how many devices are out there for each model.

When will TF201 get it? This is a bit unfair of Asus to give the TF300 preferential treatment when the Prime is a more powerful and expensive tablet. Just because it was released first shouldn’t mean we get updates last.
