Transformer Prime Gets Battery Improvements with System Update 220.127.116.11
Early this morning XDA Junior Member Liferules reported in our forums that a new update had appeared for his Asus Transformer Prime. Since the previous update (18.104.22.168), intended to improve GPS performance, Prime users have experienced random restarts and decreased battery life. XDA Senior Member demandarin, shortly after the release of the update, posted this screenshot, showing the system using the previously disabled low-power CPU frequencies. Countless other posters confirmed improved battery life and several even claimed improved WiFi performance (not confirmed).
If you are a rooted Transformer Prime user out there make sure you use OTA Root Keeper to maintain root access after the OTA update. Please also note that you WILLl lose root even with Root Keeper if you install the update using anything but the official over-the-air update. Updating using extracted blob files will break root no matter what.
Most users that received the update already were in the United States with the exception of a few users in Mexico. European Prime owners, sit tight. Representatives from Asus have confirmed that the EU version of the device will get the update early next week. Already installed the update? Want to follow the progress as users report their findings? Be sure to heck out the original thread here.

Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...
Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
In our recent Discuss article, we asked you readers on which OEM you would like to help. While the answers we received were varied, a lot of these responses and top comments stood out for helping one OEM: Sony. Some excerpts from our discussion are as below: And many more follow suit. Needless to say, many believe that Sony Mobile as a company is great and is worth saving. And all of these would be happy to hear that Sony will...
