Great news for Transformer Prime owners, as I woke up to an OTA update notification this morning! The new update is currently without a changelog, but from my experience and others on XDA, the device receives a new kernel (22.214.171.124) and updated versions of Wi-Fi (126.96.36.199) and Bluetooth (9.26). Folks are reporting a solid improvement, with random reboots, screen flickering, and app crashing being a thing of the past. I have been lucky and haven’t experienced the random reboot/lock-up issue so I cannot confirm the fix. As for better app stability and screen flashes, I can honestly say I have noticed an improvement over the past hour of use. Also, Wi-Fi is noticeably better with a slight increase in download and upload speeds. I have yet to experiment with Bluetooth.
This new update WILL BREAK ROOT so for those of you who are rooted and want to remain that way, I suggest running Voodoo rootkeeper before installing the update. You can find the Voodoo app in the Android Market.
The OTA update will bring your Transformer Prime up to version 188.8.131.52, and should be waiting for U.S. residents right now. People outside of the U.S. are reporting that the update hasn’t shown up yet so this is probably going to roll out in stages. If you haven’t seen the notification yet, you can try and force the update by going to Settings -> About Tablet -> System Firmware Update. There you should be able to download the goods. For those of you who get the update, be a pal and report your finding in the comments below. Thanks!
