ASUS Close To Finalizing Fix For Transformer Prime’s Android 4.0 OTA Update Bug

I scream, you scream, we all scream when we can’t update to Ice Cream. That’s the tune some Transformer Prime owners are singing after being unable to update their supertabs to the latest version of Android’s delectable desserts. As so often is the case when dealing with Android updates, a bug has presented itself in the T-Prime’s software that isn’t allowing the OTA to recognize the tab’s serial number. And no serial number means no update.

ASUS has acknowledged the bug and has opened up an official thread on XDA where a quick fix was given by way of a good ‘ol fashioned reboot or factory reset. This is by no means 100% effective but could help in some cases. For more help you can visit the thread on XDA where Gary Key of ASUS mentioned they are “very close to a finalizing a fix.” Hang in there, guys.

    i like how they are using XDA as a means to communicate with the masses. Shows how they ARE in fact watching :)

    Wish they would work out Wifi and GPS problems first… many have not got an solid Wifi performer. The update does not fix the unreliable Wifi. Pity as it was so very promising and now it looks Asus cannot be trusted to release a reliable system. Wait for other more reliable Quad Cores.

      The GPS and Wi-Fi problems are due to the physical design of the tablet.  Unless you expect a software update to actually change the material used in the back cover, you have to understand that there’s only so much they can do with an update.

    I think he said he would contact people individually about a fix. Hopefully not. Hopefully it’s pushed to everyone.
