    Updating Android Firmware to 10.6.1.22.5

    On 10/21/2013, Asus released a new update for the Android tablet side of the Transformer P1801 AiO system. And in typical Asus fashion, there is zero information on what feature updates or fixes are included. I do not know the answer to these questions either but I did perform the upgrade. It is fairly straight forward, sort of, not really.

    First, determine the correct country SKU of your Asus tablet:
    1) From the Android tablet, open Settings | About Tablet | Build Number
    2) In the Build Number, note the two letter country code of the tablet, e.g. CN, JP, TW, US or WW;
    2a) My build number was JOP40D.US_epad-10.6.22.5.......etc.
    2b) My SKU is the US SKU

    Now go to ASUS Service | North America website from the Windows 8 side of the P1801 (you can do this from Android too if you're savvy with the file system but for ease of navigation, I recommend Windows)
    1) Click the Download Now button
    2) Type P1801 in the Model Name Search field and click the Search button
    2a) Select the P1801 link
    3) In the OS drop down list, select Windows 8 64-bit

    Note: The Android firmware update is (incorrectly) listed under the Windows 8 64-bit section as of 10/23/2013. It should actually be listed under the Android selection in the drop down list in step 3. If you don't see the what you are supposed to in steps 4 and 5, go back to step 3 and choose Android instead of Windows 8 64-bit.

    4) Scroll down and expand the Firmware topic
    5) Of the firmwares listed, find the one that matches your country SKU noted in the first steps above (e.g. US version) and click the Global link to begin the download (600MB)
    6) The download will be a .zip file named P1801-US_epad_1061225.zip. Inside that .zip file is another .zip named US_epad-user-10.6.1.22.5.zip. Extract the US_epad-user-10.6.1.22.5.zip file to the Windows file system. This is the actual Android firmware update and does NOT need to be further extracted
    7) You'll need to copy this US_epad-user-10.6.1.22.5.zip file to the ROOT of the Android file system. If your tablet is docked to the base, you can simply copy the files from Windows to Android. I did this in Windows using this procedure:
    7a) Open Windows Explorer
    7b) Expand the ASUS Tablet P1801-T object under This PC (Windows 8.1) in the left window pane
    7c) Drag and drop the Android firmware .zip file to the root of the Internal Storage object
    8) Once the file copy completes, switch to the Android tablet and reboot it
    9) When the tablet reboots, swipe to login and you'll see a warning triangle in the settings area. If you select this warning triangle, you will see that Android has recognized that an UPDATE is available.
    10) Update the Android firmware by touching the entry to update
    10a) If the update warning triangle does not appear, then you may have copied the downloaded .zip without extracting it first. Refer to step 6 above.

    Note: The update takes about 10 minutes. DON'T PANIC if during the update, you don't see the progress meter running. This is normal and will eventually move. Mine stayed at 5% for about 2 minutes and just when I thought the system might have frozen up, it started moving. Just let it run and the process should finish normally.

    Got the android421 upgrade thru the auto-upgrade route (without going to the Asus support site) about a month ago. After effect: Android 4.2.1 & Build 10.6.1.22.5.Jul??,2013. Surprised to see the Build date said July 2013 but the new Firmware posted on the Asus support site appears with a Release date ??Oct2013 and I believe they are both the exact same Build. How did I find out....
    Ran the Firmware upgrade process but it wouldn't detect the new available s/w in the root folder after reboot; had to fool it by renaming the zip file to ....10.6.1.22.6.zip and that did the trick! Took its time and successfully ran the full upgrade process. Went to Settings->My Tab and confirmed the Build was the same July 2013 version that came with the auto-update almost 1 month back!
    Asus should explain this delay between auto-update and posting the Firmware upgrade file on the Support site?? Anywez, No Harm done.

    That's really interesting. My auto-update never worked and always reported "System is up to date". Asus is horrible about explaining the software updates on their download sites. I just confirmed that my system does report 10.6.1.22.5 but also has a Build date of July 15, 2013. Interesting.

    When I first got the P1801, the tablet was running 4.1.1. I immediately downloaded the ASUS 10.6.1.22.4 update. The System tab reports it as 4.1.2 but I believe that this is actually 4.2 version of Android. I don't know for sure but I thought that Android implemented user profiles in 4.2.

    Anyway, I honestly didn't see any differences when I updated from the 10.6.1.22.4 to the 10.6.1.22.5. As you (Android421) pointed out, this appears to be the exact same version so it is likely that this is an ASUS specific patch designed to fix a bug in something they included in the Android OS...like Splashtop or similar.

    JUst joined, so sorry to wake up an old thread. Just got my P1801 yesterday.

    4.2.x brings one important (to me) thing: multi user profiles. It's there in settings and allows you to partition off different members of the household so they don't muck up each others settings...

    Hey PeterGalbavy,

    Don't worry about waking up an old thread. We P1801 users have to stay together! Honestly I thought this AiO would have had a lot more activity than it does. Anyway, I hope that Asus keeps up with the development on the tablet side of this AIO. I'm trying not to think about an update to KitKat 4.4 so that I don't get my hopes up for disappointment. KitKat 4.4 would be awesome though.

    I love the ADHD transformer aio, and wow the i7 processor on it helps, I'll be getting one soon, and I hope they get a Kitkat update one day
