Asus has come in for quite a lot of stick over its keenly awaited Android 4.0 update for its original Transformer tablet, which arrived here a couple of weeks ago. Users have been reporting random reboots when in use and lock-ups while rebooting, plus several other awkward bugs making the ICS update less than user friendly.
Asus is now saying a “fix” of sorts is on the way, which should arrive in the next week or so. Here’s Asus on the issues plaguing the updated tablet:
Thank you to everyone who has given us feedback regarding the ICS TF101 update.We apologise for the issues some users have been experiencing and we’d like to assure you all that we are working on a fix. We don’t have an exact date for release yet but we’re aiming for early next week.
And a little more on the “wide variety” of problems users have been seeing:
The issues been experienced are down to such a wide variety of reasons that there isn’t one interim solution. We’ve heard of users finding successful solutions through factory resets, wiping rogue apps and deleting/updating widgets though
Asus sounds like it’s in a bit of a mess at the moment. Hopefully this magical “fix” for the TF101’s Android 4.0 update will solve everything next week.
