ASUS Begins Rollout of Jelly Bean to Transformer TF300T

There isn’t another tablet manufacturer out there that can match ASUS’ commitment to rolling out timely updates to it’s customers. They have consistently beaten the bigger names to updating their devices, and recently confirmed that the Transformer TF101, Transformer Prime, and Transformer Infinity would be getting the update to Android 4.1.1. Now they are beginning to follow through on that promise with an update for the Transformer TF300T.

On ASUS’ Facebook page today they made the following announcement:

Dear Valued ASUS Customers,We are pleased to announce that we will be rolling out a major software update for the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300, which will bring Android™ 4.1, Jelly Bean to the device for the first time in North America. In addition to this being the first of our planned Jelly Bean updates for the Transformer Series, we have also added a range of new features, including new power saving options, global file search and several improvements to the pre-installed apps.

We will announce Jelly Bean update plans for other Transformer Pad Series devices in the near future, so stay tuned.

Thank you for your continued support.

ASUS

Numerous users are reporting that they are receiving the update automatically, so if you haven’t yet received it and are stock you can attempt to force the update by going to Settings -> System Firmware Update -> Check Update. However if you are rooted, we recommend that you wait for one of the talented developers on XDA to get ahold of the package and provide a pre-rooted solution.

Xiaomi Finally Releases Kernel Sources
