Asus is “Working on a fix” for the Original Transformer ICS Update Issues; To Possibly Arrive Next Week

If you guys are like me, then you spammed the Check Update option on your original Transformer for the ICS update that was available Late-February. While I fell in love with my tablet all over again because of the update I noticed that as the days progressed my tablet would randomly reboot itself. Sometimes it would reboot it four – five times in a row before it would stay on. Then about an hour later it would reboot itself yet again. While it never rebooted in the middle of using it, watching it reboot itself randomly became rather frustrating. Heck, sometimes it would look up in the middle of a boot cycle. It appears that I am not in the minority with these experiences. Other users are reporting lock-ups during reboots,  and other various bugs as well.

Like the Transformer Prime update and its update problems Asus has taken to announcing that a fix is in the works for the original Transformer ICS update. While users have reported that uninstalling apps, updating widgets and factory resets have helped, this is not a good premise for Asus; especially considering their Hopes to have the next Nexus device and the first roll out of Jelly Bean. Asus writes in regards to the TF101 issues:

“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.”

They also had this to say:

“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.”

Hopefully this update will arrive next week if all goes according to plans. Are any of you folks out there having these issues? If so, sound off in the comment section below or hit the forums to have an in-depth discussion. Stay tuned as we will update you as to when the update will hit for sure.
