Let's start this with a disclaimer: I do not believe there is significant meaning behind synthetic benchmarks in correlation with real-world use. We've seen, time and again, some high-scoring phones output questionable performance. In this regard, Samsung is one of the usual culprits, and despite having opted for some of the highest spec configurations on each and every one of their flagships, many of them still managed to lag.

Did You Brick Your Transformer While Updating? Hope Lies Ahead…
Just a few days ago, it was posted in our forums that the security key for the ASUS Transformer was found, and as a consequence, people were both happy and confused regarding its importance. About 2 days ago, we posted a possible how to guide regarding the possibility of flashing Karmic Koala on the device. This is a process that requires a tool to flash to the nvflash, which requires said keys. Now, XDA member rayman84, who is also responsible for the very first custom kernel developed for this device, comes bearing the ultimate gift for Transformer owners. The dev came up with a tool to perform this kind of flashing, but this one is used for a much better purpose than flashing, and that is to recover from a bad flash. Considering that development of both roms and kernels is on the rise, this tool is bound to become a must have for all Transformer owners.
Hopefully, you will not have to try this app, but if you do, please leave some feedback for the dev.
As most of you probably already know by now, I have released a fully functional nvflash for Transformer yesterday
